I spent months coming up with my designs for overhauling my bathroom and I was determined in using granite to replace the vanity tops. My husband on the other hand, wanted to replace the tiles on our existing vanity which was made with concrete.But truth be told, I dislike tiles so much. They would need to be re-grouted every year if I didn’t spend a fortune on cleaning solutions. I wanted something easier to maintain, hygienic and just as durable. So, I had to research Granite Vanity Tops in Columbus and learn enough to convince my husband who was adamant to granite only belonging in the kitchen.
You know when a volcano erupts and molten lava oozes down? Well this is how granite is formed. It is a natural igneous rock that is formed when molten lava cools. This is most likely the reason for it being resistant to heat, and because of this, it was very popular for kitchens. It is also scratch resistant which adds to its appeal and durability. I won’t have to change this for years to come or worry about chipping it with hard objects, unlike tiles which may be prone to cracking. I always had to purchase extra tiles to replace the ones that got chipped or cracked over time. I also learnt that granite is hygienic because of its naturally porous material, thus it cannot be contaminated by bacteria or germs. I would no longer need to purchase expensive cleaning products because all I would need is soap and water to clean its surface.
I found a wide selection of Granite Vanity Tops in Columbus that were all unique and impressive in designs, colors and patterns. There were 18 patterns to choose from so you can imagine the dilemma I had to narrow down to one color. They were all so beautiful that I was going crazy. I was advised by my sister that a dark color would be best for the bathroom area since light colors are prone to show dirt more, especially when you are putting on makeup and the powder falls. She was more intrigued with the Black Galaxy slate as opposed to the Absolute Black slate because it offered more of a start glittery pattern. Needless to say, I found black was a little too dark for my taste buds but it looked beautiful in the restroom in the lobby of a luxury hotel I visited last week for lunch. Of course, I had to inform my husband that they used granite there!
After much debate, I went with the Magma Gold because I had cream colored cupboard doors so I really needed a darker color. The hint of gold with grey made my vanity area look like something out of Cleopatra’s palace. It was tough deciding between that, the Siena Bordeaux and the Crema Bordeaux so I allowed my husband to choose. It was the least I could do after he so willingly relented. He even agreed to have granite installed in the guest bathroom after he saw how luxurious it made our master bath look. Granite Vanity Tops in Columbus
