Types of Granite Colors

Black Granite is actually gabbro rock, igneous stone similar to basalt. It primarily contains plagioclase and pyroxene minerals. There are also amphibole and olivine minerals. However, black rocks have the same hardness and durability as all other granitic stones. When you find a Black Granite countertop that you like, its origin is most likely diabase, basalt, gabbro, norite, diorite, or anorthosite. Black Granite countertops present an excellent choice for anyone who likes solid colors and strong contrasts. Although some might say that Black is a dramatic choice, it doesnt have to be that way. It all depends on the combinations you choose to make in your kitchen. The black countertop can be combined with white or any other kitchen cabinet with light color. However, you can choose to go deep and dark, too. Another choice is to give your neutral gray cabinets interest and edge using Black Granite. These endless options show just how much Black Granite countertops are versatile. Whether you like misty, cool and crisp, or starry - eyed look, there are types of Granite in black color that will give you just what you want.

Granite has been a popular countertop material since the 1990s because it's beautiful, luxurious, durable, and heat - resistant. Granite Countertop resists scratches, stains, and burns. If properly cared for, this natural Stone Countertop will last for 50 + years. Granite's tough because it's metamorphic rock. That means it's hardened lava, as heat - resistant material as there is, and can stand up to just about anything you can dish out. Granite countertops are also non - porous, which means they won't soak up spills. Ketchup or merlot you spill in the kitchen won't stain the Granite Countertop. There's broad range of Granite Countertop prices. Square foot cost will depend on grade of Granite, color, pattern, finish, format, and edges. Your total costs will also depend on the amount of counter space you want to cover.


Fabrication

Another major factor in the cost of granite countertops is cutting and putting them in. This is presuming you choose slabs. If you choose tiles, you can probably skip this section. If you do choose slabs, expect your fabrication and installation cost to be about same as the cost of granite itself. Fabricating granite is a complex process requiring special machinery and extensive skills. This is for not only making sink cutouts precisely, but also hewing out edge profiles. Fewer cutouts you require will definitely lower your overall costs. In addition, if you choose a simple edge such as square or bullnose, you might get it free of charge. However, if you choose ogee or other premium edge type, you will definitely pay extra for that.


Granite colors

On average, cost you end up paying for granite of your choice will depend on the combination of its color, design, and pattern. Colors: White, gray, pink, red, yellow, brown, black Patterns: solid surface, speckle, and marble Finishes: leather, hone, or glossy Edges: Straight, ease, bevel, bullnose, or round variety of colors and patterns that you can see on granite slab countertops come from the presence of minerals biotite, muscovite, and pyroxene. Biotite is usually either black, brown, or green, depending on levels of iron also present. Muscovite is quite transparent, but has hints of green, yellow, brown, and rise. Pyroxene is either light or dark green, dark brown, or black.

Granite is, hand down, most popular countertop surface chosen for upscale homes. It is a substantial investment, though most homeowners would agree that the benefits are well worth every penny spend. The beauty of Granite countertop is unsurpassed, but it is not just aesthetic value that makes this such a popular material - its longevity and Granite countertop durability. Granite Countertops can last a lifetime, if correctly maintain. Which means it is vital to learn how to care for it properly! Recreate this look with MSI's Black Pearl Granite. Like any natural stone, granite needs to be sealed to create nonporous finish, and protect it from stains. Proper sealing should be part of the installation process, but it will need re - sealing at least once a year. White Granite Countertops may need sealing more frequently than darker colors, as they are more likely to show stains. To see if your granite countertop needs sealing, just splash a few drops of water on the surface. If water beads up, your countertop is in great shape. If water is absorb, it is time to re - seal. Applying for a sealer is a simple process. First, make sure the counter is clean and dry. Following directions on container, apply sealer with clean, dry cloth. Let dry, then apply the second coat. Avoid food preparation on your counter for 24 hours to ensure it is fully cured and water repellent. Get look at MSI's Blue Bahia Granite When your granite countertop is properly seal, daily care is a breeze. Just use soft cloth to dust the surface, or wipe it down with plain water or mild soap. If your countertop needs extra cleaning, use a specially - formulated stone cleaner with neutral pH. Never use abrasive cleansers or harsh chemicals. Despite good preparation and protection, occasionally your granite countertop may need special attention. Oily stains that have soaked into surface may be removed by applying paste made with baking soda and dish soap. Let sit overnight, cover with plastic wrap, then rinse. If your counter has stains that are difficult to remove, or scratches, contact stone care professional for repair. A polished finish is still the most popular choice, but other finishes are available, such as honed or leather. These provide some texture, along with matte finish, and have special careful considerations. Since these finishes tend to be more absorbent, special penetrating sealer is recommended to protect your countertop from stains, bacteria, and moisture. Despite being sealed properly, these finishes may still show marks or discoloration when wet, particularly on Black Granite; this is usually harmless and will disappear when the surface dries. Granite Countertops may require a bit more care than other surface materials, such as man - make, manufactured materials - but most homeowners would agree that extra work and consideration is well worth the effort. With proper care, your countertop can add value to your home and provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
