WHY GRANITE COUNTERTOPS ARE GREAT IF YOU HAVE KIDS

WHY GRANITE COUNTERTOPS ARE GREAT IF YOU HAVE KIDS

When it comes to selecting the material your kitchen or bathroom countertops will be made of, as a homeowner, your first instinct might be to choose a stone based on the Pinterest board you’ve been curating for months. Granite, quartz, and marble are three of the most popular countertop however, we always recommend choosing a natural stone that fits your lifestyle. 


The reality is that the routine of a single woman, or a professional chef is very different from the one of a family with young kids. If you have kids and find yourself designing a new home there are a lot of factors that you need to take into consideration. Choosing your countertops material is one of them. 


Many people feel drawn to granite because of its luxurious feel and timeless look. It is also the most durable and easy-to-clean natural stone out of the three mentioned above. In our eyes, granite is the perfect stone for families with young children. Let’s dive into the five reasons why we think granite is the best choice of natural stone if you are raising kids.

Durable

Granite doesn’t dent or scratch easily and it can be handled a little rougher than your average countertop. Toddlers are not often careful or gentle towards household materials, making granite a wonderful choice. 

 

Stain Resistant 

When children are around, stains are around, no matter what area of the house you are in. One of the best things about granite is that sauce or even marker stains won’t permanently affect your countertops as long as it is properly sealed. 

 

Heat Resistant

If you are raising teenagers the fact that more often than not they leave flat irons or curling irons sitting on a bathroom counter is not unheard of. While we don’t recommend leaving appliances on, for your safety, if this happens your granite countertop won’t suffer any lasting damage.  

 

Resistant to Bacteria 

Counters are one of the highest touch-points in a home. The more germ-resistant they are, the healthier your family will stay. Especially knowing that kids are in contact with germs constantly. It’s nice to know that your countertops are a safe space for your kids at home. 

 

It’s Stylish 

The fact that you are raising kids doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your Pinterest boards. Granite countertops might be convenient but there’s also a wide variety of colors and textures you can choose from. Plus, they will retain their beauty and serve you long after your kids grow up and move out of your house.
