Juanita Douglas

Are you a homeowner who has plans to do kitchen renovations? If so, you may have considered countertop replacements as part of your project. Natural stone countertops are a popular choice for many homeowners, and granite is often favored for a number of reasons. The following points will help you determine why granite stone countertops may be ideal for your home too:


Many granite countertops last homeowners for a lifetime, and some may come with warranties to give consumers peace of mind. On the rare chance that granite countertops etch, they can be repaired and still look wonderful. 

Stain Resistant

The issue that many homeowners encounter when opting for countertops made from man-made materials is that the counters stain easily. Granite and other natural stone materials are non-porous. This means that they resist stains that many foods can leave behind on countertops. For example, spaghetti sauce could stain countertops that are made from porous materials. 

Bacteria Resistant

The non-porous quality of granite also ensures that homeowners do not have to worry about bacteria lurking in their countertops. Granite countertops are easy to surface clean with soap and water, which ensures that your countertops are clean if you decide to use them for an activity such as cutting raw meat.


Perhaps you have other plans too such as an outdoor kitchen. Granite can be used indoors and outdoors. This is one reason that it is a good option for countertops in all areas of your home. 

Heat Resistant

Kitchen counters often have hot objects placed on them such as cooking pans. Granite is a natural stone that is formed from molten rock. This makes it a great option for kitchens that are used often for cooking, and cooks who need ample space for hot pans. 


There are many quarries throughout the country that supply granite to consumers and businesses for a variety of uses. This is a natural stone option that can be considered as easily accessible. 


The color of the granite sourced from quarries may vary. The look of countertops is usually important to homeowners. The good news is there many granite colors available. This means that the ideal color to complement your kitchen is likely available. Ensuring that you seal your granite countertops as needed will keep them looking beautiful. Some manufacturers have granite countertops that do not require sealing. 

A countertop specialist is a good resource to use to learn about granite countertops and other natural stone materials. They can assist with helping you find the best stone color to complement your kitchen and cabinetry.

Flower Planting 101: Simplifying Your Planting Maps

One of the things that I always loved about spring as a kid was watching all of the flowers my mother planted suddenly come up from the ground and then bloom into vibrant, beautiful colors. When I bought my own house, one of the first things I wanted to do was plant flowers. What I didn't realize was how hard it could be to figure out what to plant where. From the sun demand to the companion planting guides, it was complicated. I created this site to help others just like me create the flower gardens they always wanted without the struggles that I faced.
