Granite Kitchen Countertops for Richmond Hill Renovations

A kitchen renovation is one of the best ways to give a new look and feel to your whole home. As the old adage goes, "The kitchen is the heart of the home,” and certainly the kitchen plays a pivotal role in family life. Many times, however, it becomes a neglected part of the home, as we tend to focus on its usefulness rather than its décor. Luckily, there's one design element that combines ultimate usefulness with remarkable beauty: the granite kitchen countertop. Richmond Hill homeowners prefer this type of counter surface, and it's easy to see why.

Creating Your Own Style

If you're considering a kitchen renovation, there are a few areas to consider. These include:
  • Cabinets
  • Floor
  • Lighting
  • Window Treatments
  • Countertop
  • Walls
  • Appliances
  • Extras: Islands, Tables, etc.
These are the main areas to concentrate on. You may first need to think about style. If you've never before done a renovation, you may wonder where to start, but you can find a lot of information about different interior design styles online. Be sure that your plan for the kitchen fits with rest of your house. Designing a sleek contemporary kitchen in a house that's otherwise sweetly Victorian creates a dissonance. Of course you may blend style elements for a funky look – contemporary and rustic elements often co-exist in harmony, for example. It may be helpful to begin with what sort of feel you want your kitchen to have. Do you envision an efficient and professional looking workspace or a warm and welcoming place for family and friends to gather? Is your personal style button-down or freewheeling? Does a particular era or culture speak to you?
Next, consider materials. Use only quality materials. If this means that you have to proceed slowly, do. It will be worth your while to know that the materials you install are reliable and durable. Cheap materials will cause trouble somewhere down the line. Also consider safety when doing a renovation. For instance, choose paint that's non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

The Countertop

If the heart of the home is the kitchen, then the heart of the kitchen is certainly the countertop. In fact, the countertop is so important that some people begin renovating by choosing a particular countertop and then designing the room around it. Certain countertop materials suit certain styles; a wooden countertop is practically mandatory for a Scandinavian country look, for example. However, granite is a very versatile material. Granite countertops will suit almost any indoor decorating style; in fact, that's one of the reasons why granite is so popular.
Granite has been used in art and interior design for thousands of years, and it has a timeless appeal. Granite is available in many different colours, including neutral shades such as black, white, cream, tan, brown, and grey. More exotic varieties feature vivid jewel tones such as aubergine and saffron, chartreuse, persimmon, or carmine. The patterns on granite can be subtle or dramatic.
If you're considering a kitchen renovation, be sure to explore the many options open to you. Visit a showroom today and learn more about Richmond Hill's favourite countertop stone; granite!
