It is also important to remember that it is not essential for a backsplash to cover the entire kitchen wall. Instead, you could use a thin band around the top of the counters for a deceptively expensive effect. If you have some room in your budget, you could raise this band above the cooker so that you have at least one area covered in this beautiful material, but this is also not essential. Ultimately, any attempt at using granite in your kitchen is a smart move, with TIME writing that granite kitchens are a strong attraction for property buyers.

Granite fireplace

A granite fireplace is another perfect way to introduce granite into your home. Rather than settling for the rather predictable choice of having a feature wall, why not use an entire slab of granite that stretches from the base of your fireplace up to your ceiling? This will create a very dramatic effect and certainly act as a focal point for any of your living spaces.

If this is a little too extreme for your design ideas, why not use granite for the mantle of your fireplace. Due to its heat resistant properties, it is a perfect choice and will still look stunning in your home, especially when the fire is lit.
