Granite countertops were up-and-coming a decade ago, but they continue to be one of the most popular choices for kitchens and bathrooms today. Homeowners considering this material will have a wide variety of colors, patterns and designs to choose from. You can even get low-cost options without compromising on look and quality.
Understanding Levels & Prices
This natural stone comes in levels that range from 1 to 7, though most options only reach 5. These levels indicate how simple and basic or intricate and unique the coloration and design of the material is. Standard colors with almost no patterns will be lower grade. The more distinct the stone is, the higher its level and price. The lower grade options also contain more soft minerals, which make them less durable than higher grades.
