When you think of granite countertops, your mind probably goes immediately to the kitchen. While granite makes a great material for kitchen countertops, this isn’t your only option. If you love the look and feel of granite and want it in more areas of your home, then here are a few ideas of where to place granite countertops.
We talk a lot about bathroom countertops here at Amanzi as well as your traditional granite kitchen countertops. That’s because they’re timeless and they work! Adding a granite countertop to your bathroom vanity is a great way to add class and visual appeal to the room without spending too much. It even works for small bathrooms.
A granite bar
A bar makes a stylish and practical addition to your living room or dining room. You can use it for pouring your own drinks, serving drinks when entertaining guests, and for placing plates of food when there’s not enough space on the dining table. Granite is a resilient surface material to suit these purposes. Since it’s available in a variety of colors and styles, you can also choose granite to suit the design of the room.
Outdoor entertainment spaces
If you have an outdoor kitchen or other entertainment space, then granite countertops provide a great area for preparing and serving food and drinks. Granite is durable enough to resist the elements when used outdoors, especially if you properly seal the surface. Granite countertops will really elevate this outdoor space.
Whether it’s your dining table, coffee table, or smaller end tables, a granite surface not only looks good but also helps you resist stains from spills and people forgetting to use a coaster for their drink. You won’t have to constantly worry about rings being left on the surface like you do with wooden tabletops. Seal your granite tables to make them even more resistant and help them last longer.
If you often work or study from home, then you want to create a space that you enjoy spending time in. With a granite-topped desk or counter, you can add extra appeal and comfort to your home office or study space.
