Granite is a durable and easy-to-maintain countertop material. It does have its disadvantages, however, mostly all products in the market have some or the other drawback. While deciding on which countertop material to buy, one must weigh the pros and cons. Despite these cons, granite countertops are elegant, unique and enhance the beauty of one’s kitchen.
You have a wide range of designs, materials, and types of corbels to choose from, which can be quite a task. However, if you are aware of your requirements as far as the application and style of the corbels for your granite countertops are concerned, then you can easily select them for your kitchen!
Granite countertops have to be sealed on a yearly basis to maintain their shine and luster. Neglecting sealing on a regular basis can cause the granite countertop to become cloudy and stained. Kitchen sinks have to be carefully purchased, because replacing the sink installed in-between the granite countertop will prove expensive, as it will require the removal of the entire granite slab.
Installing a granite slab is a very laborious and tedious task, due to which, the installation can cost almost three times the amount spent on the slab. Granite also requires an additional supporting structure during the installation as it is very heavy. However, once a granite countertop is installed, it becomes a permanent structure. Removing it later can even harm the adjoining structures. Their biggest advantage is that they sport a luminous surface and give a very rich look to the kitchen furniture.
Depending on the degree of pressure and temperature, streaks and patterns are formed in the quartz crystals, giving it its characteristic appearance. Pure quartzite is usually white or gray in color. However, many a time, impurities such as deposits of iron, carbon, clay and other minerals get included in the mixture giving the quartzite different colors such as red, pink, orange, blue, etc.
When you have a contemporary kitchen decoration with white or beige cabinetry and black granite countertops, the best thing would be to opt for iron corbels. Metal corbels look perfect when they are paired with a light colored background.
