Why Choose Granite Countertops for Your Cincinnati Kitchen?
Nothing compares to the natural beauty of granite countertops. It has long been a favorite in Cincinnati homes. Granite is strong, durable, heat-resistant and absolutely stunning.
Since no two slabs are the same, your kitchen will boast unique counters all your own.
Granite vs. Quartz
When we think about quartz vs. granite countertops there is one main difference-quartz is a manufactured product with consistent colors and patterns.
Unlike quartz and porcelain countertops, granite is taken straight from the Earth. Slabs are cut from the mountain, polished, and installed in your home. This makes every granite countertop unique.

Black and White Granite Countertops
White Granite Countertops
Natural stone is made up of many minerals. Mixed together, these minerals have different refraction values that determine how light passes through the material.
The optical properties make it impossible to get pure-white granite countertops. However, you can find slabs close to white with slight color variations and attractive textures that give them character.
If you prefer a sleek, pure-white look, consider manufactured quartz.
Black Granite Countertops
Look at black granite countertops up close to reveal a hidden world. Subtle colors and textures from the mineral makeup in the material range from solid black to sparkling gold to white.
Black granite is stain-resistant and highly durable. If you do get a stain, it won't reveal itself as easily as lighter countertops.
Black complements almost any kitchen color scheme. But be prepared for dust and fingerprints.
Endless Range of Granite Countertop Colors
Granite slabs also range from creams, browns, and grays to striking greens. Many even include red features created by garnet minerals in the stone.
The rock slabs that are cut and polished for countertops were formed over eons when quartz and other minerals cooled and pressed together under the Earth. Minerals like Olivine, Feldspar, Mica, and Garnet give each granite deposit its own unique look.
One slab of granite exhibits a vast range of colors, textures, and hues. Created by nature, you'll enjoy intricate patterns and colors that vary from slab to slab - no two are alike.
Granite Countertop Maintenance
How to Clean Your Granite Countertops
- Warm water is usually all you need to clean your countertop. You can also use a mild dish soap and wipe dry.
- Avoid abrasive or acidic products that can damage or scratch the finish.
- Wipe countertops dry with a microfiber cloth to avoid buildup of water spots.
- Always wipe up spills promptly. Some materials in natural stone are porous.
You'll rarely need to reseal the granite due to the specialized product we use and the painstaking way we apply it. A little care and maintenance are all it takes to keep your granite countertops looking great in your kitchen for decades.
