One of the best parts of remodeling your kitchen or bathroom is selecting beautiful pieces that turn a house into your home. Your countertops make up a significant amount of your home’s interior look — you’ll use them for cooking, holding your gadgets, and displaying your decor.
Make your next home renovation project perfect with the unique hues and stunning designs of atlas granite. Lesher Natural Stone, Quartz, & Tile is one of the few places in Central Pennsylvania where you’ll find this sophisticated granite design.
Key Features of Atlas Granite
When you choose atlas granite for your counters, you’re selecting a unique slab that transforms any room into an adventure. The elegant and colorful designs are map-like — from deep turquoise to dark beige and bright gold, this granite will turn your home into a work of art.
Like most granite forms, atlas granite has many qualities that make it an excellent addition to your building or remodeling project. Granite is one of the hardest natural materials in the world, so it easily resists scratches, chips, and dents from excitable children or frequent guests. It also stands up well to heat and moisture exposure, so it’s an especially good choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
While granite is one of the most affordable countertop materials, its natural beauty will add value to your property, too!
Atlas Granite Maintenance
Keeping granite in working order is easy enough for anyone to maintain. For day-to-day cleaning, you can wipe it with a microfiber cloth. It can be dry or wet, although a damp cloth may pick up stains better. If you prefer a more thorough clean, most household cleaners are acceptable for a granite surface — even bleach, although we suggest you dilute it. Make sure you avoid harsh, abrasive cleaners, as they can scratch and damage the surface.
You’ll also need to check if your granite needs resealing about once a year. Test the granite by splashing some water in an inconspicuous place and letting it sit for a few minutes. The water should bead up and easily wipe away. However, if the water flows freely or begins to seep into the granite, it’s time to reseal. Keeping a good seal on your granite ensures minimal staining over time.
