Back to Nature with Granite in Home Renovations

The Back to Nature call is now stronger than ever, with millions of people worldwide becoming aware of the advantages of using natural materials in their daily routine. Natural materials are strongly present in modern home design as well. Granite is a material which ranks high in terms of popularity and convenience, not only when it is a matter of easy maintenance of granite worktops in kitchens, but also when the floor or the fireplace need a new shine and sleek natural radiance.

Granite is a rock material which has a granular and crystalline texture. Comprising mostly quartz, mica and feldspar, it shines in a bouquet of natural tiny crystals. Depending of its chemistry and mineral content, granite can have different colours, from pink to grey. Granite worktops and granite bathrooms featured in new home design are reminiscent not only of the variety of colours that granite massifs offer, they also remind of the origins of granite rocks, found in circular depressions amid hill ranges – when touching or sliding the look along granite surfaces, instantly images of stern and sturdy granite formations are evoked, and this sturdiness is a quality that granite brings into modern homes, along with the radiant display of crystalline surfaces that shine and invite to be delighted in.

Granite excellently chimes with the invitation of going back to nature. Nowadays people have little time to spare outside cluttered business routines, and they long for particles and parts of nature that can lend a modern appeal to their homes. In renovation projects, designers often advise home owners to choose granite for their new granite worktops, have their bathrooms steeped in granite elegance, or choose granite for their floors to walk on naturally sparkling floors streaming beauty. Granite worktops in kitchens are not just new surfaces replacing old kitchen worktops – they are innovative looking kitchen staples which not only feature natural material but also offer convenience of use and maintenance. Granite’s natural appeal and charm is not only stunning and rainbow rich in terms of colours. It is also a timeless beauty, owing to its natural sturdiness. Back to nature with granite used for granite worktops, bathrooms, etc. means conforming to the innovative approach of modern design applied to homes – natural is synonymous with sturdy and easy to maintain, scratch resistant and stain resistant when granite is used as a tool in home renovations.

When modern home design considers granite as a material for renovation projects, its advantages are easy to identify not only because by choosing granite slabs for home renovations people go back to nature and natural materials. Granite is among the hardest and sturdiest materials known to people, and that is why it is most frequently selected for granite worktops. The granite fixtures industry is aware of the high demand among modern customers for new granite worktops, and that is why there are a host of models and colours on offer, highly polished and honed, made from granite sourced from all corners of the world.
