Cheap Granite counters have been around for a long, long time, and yet people today are still raving about them. After all, cheap granite kitchen counters in MD are beautiful, low-maintenance and durable. They’re also affordable, will increase the value of your home and never depreciate. What’s not to love? The question some might be asking is what makes granite such a great choice for kitchen counters, other than the obvious reasons listed above. To answer that question, we need to take a closer look at what granite is really made of – and why it matters.

First, you need to understand that cheap granite is a blend of a variety of different crystals. The predominant crystal in any slab of granite is what gives it its unique properties, including color, design, reflection and durability. All of our affordable granite kitchen counters are extremely durable, but they all offer a unique look – allowing you to choose just the right color and composition to fit your unique taste and requirements. See marble institute for more information on different stone types. 

One of the most common crystals found in cheap granite is quartz. Quartz is an extremely hard-wearing crystal that helps make your inexpensive granite counters so durable. We have quartz to thank for our low-priced granite kitchen counters being able to withstand heat, scratches, impact and overall day to day wear and tear. This crystal is colorless and blends in cheap granite countertops, reflecting the colors that surround it, enhancing the overall smoothness and natural beauty of their natural design.

The second most common crystal found in cost effective granite countertops is feldspar. Feldspar is the crystal that creates most of the colors found in affordable granite. It is also quite resilient, being harder than glass and so also contributes to the durability of your granite kitchen counters. Feldspar is non-reflective, which allows it to bring deeper and darker colors to granite such as black, deep orange and even blue.

We also carry a lot of granite, marble, soapstone slabs at our Crofron Location. You will see a picture taken at our Crofton MD location. Our address there is 1633 Crofton Center, Crofton, MD, 21114 Telephone 410 721 9444

Another common crystal found in cheap granite counters in MD is mica. Mica is reflective and has a metallic quality that serves to give your granite kitchen counters that smooth, polish look and feel. Mica comes in several hues and colors. If you have pink, silver, violet or brown granite counters, you can thank mica for your hue of choice!

Now that you have a better understanding of the importance of granite’s components, you are better equipped to find the granite countertops that are right for you. Knowing which crystal offers which attribute will make it easier for you to ask for granite counters rich in quartz or mica, for example. And once your granite counters are finally at home in your kitchen, you’ll be able to boast about how feldspar is the reason your deep ochre counters complement your wooden cabinets so well!
