Granite provides a luxury feel throughout the home. Aside from kitchen countertops, polished granite can create a beautifully styled backsplash that can extend and accentuate the look of your countertops.
In the bathroom, granite can be used as a tub surround or as a shower wall cap. Some types of granite are also considered a highly durable surface for showers, steam showers, floors, walls, ceilings, and sinks.
Granite Table Tops
When it comes to granite, why stop at kitchens and bathrooms? As a durable and sturdy stone surface, granite is highly useful in a wide variety of applications. Granite provides a beautiful designer look, and it also serves as a durable work surface. Here are some new uses for granite in the home:
- Craft tables or work surfaces
- Coffee tables, end table tops
- Bedroom dressers and vanity tops
- Desk tops
The fireplace is the focal point of any room, and it’s another excellent option for the use of granite. Granite can provide a formal, polished look to your fireplace surround, using either honed or polished solid granite or granite tiles. You can surround your entire fireplace with granite, including the hearth and mantle. And you can keep the look as ornate or as simple as you’d like.
Outdoor Uses for Granite
Because of its high durability and resistance to the elements (rain, snow, hail, and sun), granite is a superb choice for use outdoors. Honed or leathered granite will require much less maintenance to preserve its look than polished granite will. Honed or leathered granite is also best applied near a pool or hot tub to provide traction and prevent slipping. Granite can be used in the following outdoor applications:
- Outdoor kitchen surfaces
- Outdoor fireplace surrounds
- Outdoor paths and walkways
