There‘s a lot to love about open shelving and the only disadvantages are either related to personal style preferences or the lack of privacy. But let’s focus on the pros first. The biggest advantage of all when you have open shelves in the kitchen is the fact that you can easily access everything that’s on them. You can see everything at a glance and quickly grab the item you need.
Granite can be expensive and is among the costlier of countertop materials, particularly because of installation. And, its great weight means you'll need very sturdy cabinet boxes to support the countertop, which can be a concern if you are remodeling. In some kitchens, a large amount of granite might require extra floor supports as well. What is mainly an advantage for some might also be a slight disadvantage. While a glass or cup can survive a collision with some countertop surfaces, that’s generally not the case with granite. Drop a glass or plate on granite and you can be sure that it will break. Like most stone, granite must be sealed every so often to avoid stains. How often you have to seal the counter depend on the type of sealer you use and the color of your granite. If you have a dark granite top, you might not need to seal as often because minor discoloration is not visible. RemPros also notes that alkaline- or acid-based cleaners should not be used for cleaning granite.
We recommend to visit every supply house in your area that sells the type of granite you want and try to negotiate a better price, noting that you can often save about 20 percent. The shine and substance of granite is incomparable. Even though the granite may only be in your kitchen, it gives the entire house a sleek feeling, according to the Green Garage Blog. It just plain looks great. And, although it has been in vogue for a number of years, it's not a really trendy surface that will go out of style. Granite is available in a large variety of colors with a large range of patterns and striations. The different mineral contents and source locations impart great variations in appearance. Stylish edges are an option with granite countertops, from simple bullnose or beveled edges to more creative Ogee or Waterfall versions. Granite is durable, but not unbreakable, and will definitely last for decades. Unless you bang very heavy objects on the countertop or treat it very roughly, it will likely last longer than you will. Under normal kitchen conditions, granite will not chip, dent or crack and will stand up to most knives and cooking tools, as well as all of your cooking projects. Totally Granite says you can cut, chop, slice, and dice on a granite countertop without a cutting board.
