Granite is a truly versatile product. It comes in an amazing array of colors, from soothing charcoal gray to forest green to emerald red.

Ideas for Remodeling Your Kitchen With Granite

Add a kitchen island with a granite countertop: Kitchen islands are a great way to add a little pop of color to your kitchen, be able to do more things in your kitchen, and offer more places for people to socialize. You don’t have to have the granite on your kitchen island match the granite on your other kitchen countertops. Having it be a different color can be a great way to draw the eye to the kitchen island. White, gray and gold are popular granite colors at the moment.

Freshen up your kitchen with a light-colored granite countertop: Nothing says clean, spacious and bright like a white countertop. If you are tired of mismatched or dark and gloomy colors in your kitchen, or you just want to make the kitchen feel cleaner, more spacious and mood-lifting, try replacing your countertops with white granite. White works well with any color and helps a room feel less stuffy. If white seems too bright, go for a neutral beige color just to lighten things up a bit.

Add lighting to highlight the granite countertops: Lighting can make all the difference in making your kitchen usable, comfortable and beautiful. Don’t be afraid to show off the granite countertops. Find some unique hanging lamps to go above a kitchen island and install some under-the-cabinet lighting for those hard-to-reach areas. Little touches like that can make a huge difference in how your kitchen feels.

Everything You Need to Know About Waterfall Countertops

Until fairly recently, waterfall countertops tended to be seen as a very modernist and slightly unusual option. But this distinctive design style, in which the countertop extends down the sides of an island unit to the floor, is now becoming increasingly popular

Why Choose a Waterfall Countertop in Colorado Springs

Hard-wearing, safe and convenient

The kitchen is often the hub of a home. It’s the area which gets the most use and is at the greatest risk of damage from the spills, breakages and scratches which inevitably accompany the daily preparation and serving of food and drink.

So waterfall counters are a great way to protect your cabinets and other installations from this kind of wear and tear. They require very little maintenance. They’re easy to clean, extremely durable and difficult to scratch.

And they’re also safer for children and pets, offering them fewer sharp edges to collide with.

A beautiful focal point for your home  

But in addition to these practical advantages, waterfall counters are also a highly attractive design option.

In a busy kitchen, a waterfall island makes a great visual focal point which can perfectly complement the floors, walls and other fittings.

And the long natural sweep of the waterfall design will also show off more of the beautiful natural veining of the granite, marble or quartz you choose for your countertop.

But with such a wide variety of design options and materials available, it’s a good idea to seek experienced advice before finally deciding on your choice of installation.
