Properties of Natural Stone - Granite
Granite is a very hard stone by nature so it is easy to slip into the thinking that it is tough but not very appealing. That thinking would be inaccurate because there are a variety of colors and patterns available.
This diversity in appearance means that you do not have to compromise on looks just to get a long lasting floor covering. Even after years of wear the stone is very attractive and retains its unique look. While other hard surfaces age in such a way that they look worn and faded, granite does not suffer from these weak points. Rather, it holds its beauty and shows wear at a slower rate - making it attractive for a longer period.
Granite is an easy material to maintain when sealed properly and the appropriate cleaning agents are applied to the material as directed.
Overall, if you are seeking a durable, yet elegant material that is sure to last for many years, you might consider granite.
