Granite is one of the strongest natural stones and building materials. Its durability have made granite tiles incredibly useful and highly popular in outside architecture and sculptures. Some examples of this are the Marine Corp Monument in Arlington, Virginia, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, in Washington, DC.
Because granite is so hard and non-porous, granite tile can be used virtually anywhere. In outdoor kitchens, it can be used as a countertop. It can also be used on decks, porches, patios, and walls. Indoors, kitchen countertops are the most popular use for granite tile as liquids and microbes cannot penetrate the surface. This means a sanitary kitchen counter perfect for cooking.
In addition, granite tile is also a popular choice for high traffic floors such as entry-ways and kitchens because it is as elegant as it is durable. You can also use granite tile in basements and laundry rooms, and other rooms with heavy equipment. Because of its solid surface, allergens cannot get into this floor, unlike carpet; and can be easily swept up.
Granite is also being used more often in bathrooms, particularly on shower surrounds and shower pans as it is non-porous, and works well in a wet environment.
