Why Choose Granite Remnant Countertops?

Posted on: December 15, 2016

Do you want a great-looking countertop without spending a fortune? Have you considered granite remnants? Granite remnant countertops combine the unsurpassed beauty of stone, including natural variances in color, shading and grain, with long-lasting durability that can stand up to the harsh conditions of everyday use in a kitchen or bathroom.

Because granite remnants are often the leftover pieces from large projects, they are typically more affordable than standard granite, though they are sizable enough for many home uses. They can make a unique addition to any home, from a bathroom vanity to a kitchen island or countertop.

At Bath, Kitchen and Tile Center, we stock a wide variety of granite remnants, and can even help with installation. Contact us at 800-282-8656 to learn about our current stock of granite remnants!

Why Granite Remnants Are Unique

In many cases, as a large slab of granite is cut for a particular job, the natural variances in the stone create sections that do not quite match the color, the grain, or the thickness of the other pieces in the project.

Such pieces are culled and sold as remnants. Because of this, many granite remnant countertops have extremely unique color, shading, and grain patterns that are not found in larger pieces. By mixing and matching similar colors or contrasting colors, you can create a truly eye-catching design.

Benefits of Installing Granite Remnant Countertops

Being that granite remnants are made from natural stone, they offer many benefits that make them the perfect countertops in high-traffic areas, like:

  • They are strong and durable
  • They can resist heat up to 480 degrees
  • They are difficult to scratch
  • They are available in many colors with natural variances

Granite remnant countertops are both great-looking and strong, making them perfect for home use and a great long-term investment.

How to Care for Your Granite Countertop

Because granite remnant countertops are so durable, they are reasonably easy to care for. To clean them, use a soap specifically designed for stone surfaces or a mild dish detergent. Do not use abrasive cleaners or acidic compounds, as they could damage the surface. Periodically seal the surface with a non-toxic stone sealant. Here are a few other precautions:

  • Use Coasters: Use coasters for all glasses, especially those with alcohol or citrus juices.
  • Use Trivets: Though granite is heat-resistant, place trivets or mats under hot cooking utensils.
  • Clean Spills: Remove liquids immediately to avoid stains.
  • Avoid Acids: Acids like vinegar or lemon juice can etch the stone.

“Although we have given this project a rating of 10 in all areas, we would like to give our thanks and appreciation to our designer Joel and installer Andrew (and crew) for the excellent job they did in remodeling our bath.  It was truly a pleasure working with them from beginning to end."
