Goodbye Granite Countertops?

Design and style is interesting to contemplate. Why is something that was de rigueur until recently now beginning to fade in popularity? Or is it?


  1. There is always form over function to consider and granite isn't the easiest material to maintain. Neither is it usually the most economical. 
  2. Have enough to do without adding granite maintenance? 
  3. Here are some similar alternative to granite ideas with material price estimates. (For the finest quality building and/or remodels, we'd urge you to consider our friend, Paul Golden at Golden Construction in Palm Desert, California. Paul's attention to detail is unsurpassed by anyone we've known and is truly impressive.)
  4. However, granite may be losing its grip a bit, but it remains very popular (as the following Tweet affirms). What do you think? Please comment.
