Granite is, without a doubt, one of the most used materials for interior cladding throughout history, both for its beauty and its incredible technical characteristics. A material that is always present in the world of architecture and decoration for many reasons, we highlight five.
1. It is always in fashion.
Granite is a material that never goes out of fashion. The huge range of colours, the uniqueness of each slab and the multiple finishes available, have allowed this material to maintain the attention of builders, designers and consumers for years.
2. Really easy to maintain.
When it comes to maintaining and caring for granite indoors you really don’t have much to worry about. There are a number of sealers available to treat the surface of your natural stone that form a moisture and stain resistant barrier.
Cleaning natural stone is also a quick and painless task that only requires a little soap and hot water. As long as you wipe up spills and drips quickly, they will leave no trace.
3. It’s incredibly durable.
Granite is an extremely durable material. Not only can natural stone be used as a flooring material in high traffic areas, but it can also be used as a countertop, for a fireplace, a cladding, … thus ensuring that stains, scratches, and heat do not pose a threat to the appearance over the years.
4. Natural and sustainable.
Granite is a natural material with inherent qualities, such as infinite reusability, that contribute to sustainable design goals, including low energy production and the absence of waste gases that can reduce air quality. If properly cared for, natural stone can last a lifetime and beyond.
5. Great versatility.
Its quality and versatility allow it to be combined with other materials throughout your home to create a contemporary space that feels natural, unique and well-designed. The wide variety of colours it comes in and the fact that no two pieces are the same means that every room in your home can benefit from the inclusion of natural stone.
