When researching the various kitchen countertops available on the market you are bound to encounter granite countertop slab and its alternative, granite tiles. Whilst both of these options are viable for any modern kitchen, you should be aware of the pros and cons of each before making a decision. Learn more about these pros and cons below:
- Granite tiles – tiles offer a durable, heat resistant surface that will look great in any modern kitchen, with many colors available too. Unfortunately these take longer to install than a slab would as small pieces need to be laid and grouted and because of the labor involved, you probably won’t save much in terms of installation costs. Tiles do however cost less than slabs. Due to the presence of grout, there is however more opportunity for bacteria to be harbored between the tiles.
- Granite slabs – these are a popular choice as they provide a sleek and luxurious looking surface. The surface is hygienic as it is non porous and does not harbor bacteria. You can quite easily and quickly clean the surface with a damp cloth and some soapy water if required. Installation will be quicker than that of tiles.
Installing either a granite countertop slab or granite tiles will add value to your home.
