Plenty of Granite Options

Granite’s durability and longevity make it ideal for kitchen countertops and other heavily used surfaces, including table tops, bar tops, floors, and monuments. The beauty and elegance of granite, available in a striking array of colors, makes it a most prestigious countertop, but since granite is one of the hardest materials on earth, it is also one of the most practical countertop materials.
