It’s not rare to find granite countertops in many Baton Rouge homes. But how do you know it’s the right stone for your home? At STONE, we understand how important this choice is for you. Now more than ever, we are finding value in our homes and taking pride in the way it provides for us. Granite is a great stone that can not only look amazing but add value that you’re proud of.
What Makes Granite Great?
Granite countertops are an excellent choice for any Baton Rouge home. Granite is a stunning, strong stone that is very versatile and fits in with our everyday southern living. For one, granite is heat resistant. For kitchens or bathrooms with lots of bright and natural light, granite helps cut down on the excess warmth in the room. Even better, you can set your hot items, such as curling irons or fresh meals from the oven, right on top of the granite without worrying about damaging it.
Additionally, granite is known for its sturdiness—a property that also protects it from damage. This resilient countertop can stand up to your avid home chefs. Don’t worry about cuts or chipping!
Something to be aware of is that granite is one of the least porous of all the natural stones. Luckily, STONE can educate you on how to properly seal it. We also offer a Sealant product and service that offers a 25 year warranty!
How Can Granite Make My Home Unique?
The way we use granite in our homes is constantly evolving. Remember how sturdy granite is? This makes it really versatile in our home designs! We can use it without worrying about chipping and cuts.
Also, trends have shown us it’s not only a great stone for our countertops but also on our walls, floors, and as accent touches.
- It makes reliable backsplashes in kitchens.
- Floor to ceiling use in kitchens and bathrooms.
- Waterfall countertops for extra classy looks.
Granite is naturally made with unique and exciting textures. Veins and specks effortlessly draw your eye across the room like a piece of art.
Want to know a secret? You’re not limited to just one color of granite! Many trendy designers are combining two different kinds of countertops to create one-of-a-kind rooms. The idea may seem daunting at first, but it’s easier than you think. So, who’s stopping you from getting designer looks without paying the designer price? Start with one of the following options:

What If I’m Building My Own Home?
For custom home builders, there’s one more thing to consider when it comes to your granite countertops in the kitchen—the layout. Your kitchen layout should work with you. So remember when choosing your granite slabs, to choose the hues that follow your workflow.
In general lighter, subtler hues will make the room feel larger and brighter. Consider using light granite on kitchen islands and peninsulas. Contrarily, darker and busier hues will make the room feel intimate and sophisticated. Dark granite may fit best for U-Shaped or L-Shaped countertops. Let us help you decide how to decorate.
