Granite in Interior Home Design



Date Posted: 12/28/2022

Granite is one of the oldest and most durable natural stones. It is used where toughness and longevity is necessary and can be seen in exterior projects in the form of buildings, bridges, and monuments. Look closely and you will see many external applications. It has been used as a building material for thousands of years.


Granite is a prestige material for interior use and granite slabs and tiles are used for kitchen worktops, tiles, stairs, and many other design features. The impression is always one of grace, elegance, and quality. It is a composition of feldspar, biotite, quartz and other minerals. The unique colors and patterns are formed because of the minerals melting into the liquid mass when this hard igneous rock was formed.

Apart from its aesthetic appeal, granite is durable, low maintenance, and waterproof, stain resistant, difficult to scratch or burn, making it incredibly long lasting.

Let's take a look at various uses of granite and make it a part of your dream home design. Granite can be used both as polished as well as unpolished, which is mostly used in exterior projects.


Granite Countertops and Islands

Granite countertops are popular for many reasons. Like we mentioned above, granite is strong, easy to clean, and heat and water resistant. It is used in both traditional and modern kitchens, large and small. Granite countertops improve the look and value of your home. 

Bathroom Vanity Tops

Similar to kitchen countertops, bathroom vanity tops made from granite is a fantastic addition. Granite is resistant to water and mold. It can shine and function in bathrooms as well as in your kitchen. The look of a small bathroom is easily improved and more sophisticated with granite countertops.



Granite is just as functional and stylish as a kitchen backsplash. It creates an excellent barrier between your wall and water. Granite backsplashes work whether you have a custom-fabricated countertop or install granite tiles yourself. Try using granite for both the countertop and backsplash to spruce up visual continuity.


Granite is harder than marble or travertine, making it more suitable for areas with high foot traffic, withstanding the congestion of your home’s walkways. Granite flooring tiles outlast tiles of other popular materials; even standing water won’t harm granite flooring. And who doesn’t want floors that are easy to clean?


Although this natural stone is primarily used in homes as countertops, vanity tops, and backsplashes, walls can be a terrific addition. Granite walls make a notable visual impact on a house’s interior. It provides you with hundreds of options in terms of styles to choose from for your interior wall designing. Its striking veins and grains give a great deal of expressiveness to your modern living space, with polished and honed surfaces.

Granite is naturally water-resistant; if properly sealed, it becomes the perfect choice for shower walls. It is also effortless to clean regularly. Many other natural stones have awesome looks; not every stone will resist the shower factors the way that this stone can.

Granite can also be used for staircases, shelving, outdoor tiling and pathways, and fireplace mantels. As a whole, there are effectively limitless ways to integrate granite into your home interior design.
