Real Estate Agent Reveals The Hidden Downsides Of Granite Countertops
Granite countertops were a mainstay of modern kitchen design in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but as real estate agent Maggie Richter tells Apartment Therapy, they are now dated.
While granite once reigned supreme, materials like concrete, marble, and even wood have taken over. Richter notes that quartz, in particular, is gaining popularity.
This is much in part due to designers like Joanna Gaines, who prefers the pale tones of quartz that make spaces feel lighter and brighter overall.
Meanwhile, concrete counters offer a more durable surface, and wooden surfaces provide a softer and more natural look. Ultimately, these can pay off big when you eventually sell.
