Granite is a natural, igneous rock composed of quartz, feldspar, micas, and a mixture of additional trace minerals. Forbes explains they types and amounts of the different minerals are what give granite different colors, textures and patterns. It typically 10 to 50% quartz, which is semi‐transparent white, and 65 to 90% feldspar, usually pinkish or white. Generally, natural stone like granite is desirable because it has more character than man‐made countertop surfaces.
When it comes to kitchen countertops, natural materials might be the most popular option, but they are certainly not always the most affordable. Enter solid surface countertops like Corian, which have become increasingly popular thanks to their easy‐care nature and more affordable price points.
As with so many rooms in our homes, a simple way to add some vivacity to the space is to lay a brightly colored rug. Choose a patterned runner to lay in your galley kitchen and it will immediately make the kitchen a happier space.
