Granite Countertops in Maryland
Are your current kitchen countertops outdated? When it comes to kitchen countertops, a sleek granite countertop can make a kitchen stand out. Wow your guests as soon as they walk by the kitchen when you choose granite stone for your countertops. Not only do granite countertops provide you with a clean, modern look for your kitchen, but they have many benefits unrelated to aesthetics as well. As we mentioned before, with In Home Stone, you have multiple choices when it comes to choosing granite countertops in Maryland.
Thanks to our wide selection of stone, our granite slabs come in countless color combinations and patterns. No granite slab is the same, providing you with a unique look that no one else will have, regardless of whether they have a similar color or pattern. You are able to choose from darker color slabs to match your white cabinets or a light color slab to contrast your dark wood colored cabinets. Compliment your granite countertops with a granite backsplash to complete the look. If you’re not sure what would look best while also fitting the style that you are going for, our experienced designers can guide you and provide you with suggestions.
Granite is the hardest stone available. It is resilient to scratches, making it a very popular choice for kitchen countertops. It is so resilient that some homeowners choose to forego the cutting board entirely. As granite can only be scratched by another piece of granite, or diamond, any cutting directly on the countertop won’t damage it. Worrying about scratching the surface from sliding items over the countertops, will be a thing of the past. Take it a step further and choose granite stone for your floors and you won’t have to worry about scratches like you would if you have wooden floors.
Resistant To Temperature Changes
Another reason granite is extremely popular in kitchens is its resistance to heat. If you need to temporarily place a hot pot or pan directly on the countertop, it will not affect or damage the countertop. You won’t have to encounter your counter bubbling anymore from exposure to heat as you would with laminate. It’s resistance to temperature also makes it an ideal surface for projects that require a cool environment, such as rolling out dough. In addition, granite withstands extreme temperature changes, so it is an excellent choice for fireplace facades as well.
When sealed and cared for properly, granite is stain resistant. If you accidentally spill food or drink on it, you will be able to easily clean it up without affecting the overall aesthetic of your countertop. Unlike laminate countertops, you are able to retain the look regardless of any accidents which are bound to happen in the kitchen. That unfortunate wine or coffee spill will not ruin your countertops any longer.
As granite countertops are stain resistant, they are extremely easy to clean. Therefore, making them low maintenance. As long as the granite countertop is properly sealed, the quality of your granite will remain intact. Typically, the maintenance granite requires is just annual sealing. If you decide to add a granite backsplash to complement your countertops, cleaning the remnants of sauces that tend to always land on the backsplash will become a breeze. As a result, leaving you with an easily cleaned kitchen that will make you wonder why it took so long to change to granite stone.
As we are both suppliers and distributors, we are able to bring the savings right to our customers. In turn, our granite countertops are much more cost effective than others who only distribute granite countertops. The low maintenance of granite will also save you money in the long run. You won’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on cleaning supplies to maintain the look of the stone, or having to completely replace a laminate countertop when it gets unsightly stains or it begins to bubble. Our designers at In Home Stone will take into account your budget and needs so that you are able to receive quality granite and complete your project.

Benefits of Marble Countertops
Marble is a natural stone, meaning it's more resistant than many of the other available countertop materials to scratching, shattering, and splitting. In terms of its toughness, marble is smoother than granite, so appealing architectural features can be integrated.
Every piece is distinctive in appearance since marble was developed by a natural process. The region of origin and the relative combination of minerals in the original stone define the diverse variety of textures and colors used in marble.
Resistance to Heat
Marble countertops are also thermally resistant. Marble does not catch fire or flame, so by not putting a hot pan or pot on the surface without cover, it is prudent to maintain the polish.
For a very long period of time, marble has been used as a construction material, so its ability to stand harsh weather conditions is well known. You should continue to appreciate the elegance of marble for a lifetime as it is expertly built and well sealed and preserved.
Naturally, Marble remains cold
Making it the ideal surface for bakery products, since it usually stays below room temperature. This is why marble countertops are favored by bakers above many natural stones.
What distinguishes it from the other natural stones is the timeless, elegant look of marble countertops.
