The first thing that you notice when you enter the kitchen is its central island or working area. Both of them are mostly used and are most exposed to wear, so when you decide to what countertop to use for the kitchen island and working area you should choose wisely.
The Granite is one of the best options for those who prefers natural materials. The countertop made of granite is very durable, only the diamond is more hardness than it. Another pros about using a granite as countertop is that it can be delivered in many color options, so it can go together with almost every style in the kitchen.
It is also easy to clean, but you must use neutral agent, because more aggressive acid-containing cleaners can damaged the granite. Here are several kitchen designs where countertops are made from granite:
