Granite is still the top choice — CountryLiving.com

Country Living Magazine writer, Elizabeth Roehrig points out that Granite is still the top choice for kitchens

“Granite is still a top choice for countertops due to its durability — it’s easy to clean and can handle hot pots without risk of scorch marks — as well as its natural beauty. In addition to the color, the edge style influences the overall look. A straight edge looks spare and modern, while a beveled edge, such as the one seen here, creates a softer profile that complements the room’s design”
