innovativewaystousegranite2Sure, everyone knows about granite countertops or tile floors, but uses like that are just the tip of the granite iceberg.

Here are a few less common ways to use this beautiful stone in your home!

Granite desktops

Large pieces of granite are not just for kitchen counters anymore. The smooth surface is ideal for writing, and its heat resistant quality makes it a perfect resting place for a computer or other electronics.

Granite is also much more resistant to wear and tear than wood or other traditional desk surfaces, so it should keep its beauty for years with little to no maintenance. Plus, you’ll get the satisfaction that comes from working on such a high quality surface.

Granite flooring

Much like a desktop, granite’s durability makes it an ideal choice for flooring. Use a few tiles inside your doorway to prevent dirt, winter salt, and other elements from being tracked elsewhere in your house.

As the saying goes, you only have one chance to make a good first impression. Granite in the entranceway is a great way ensure that your home makes a good first impression on whoever walks through the door.

Granite mosaic

While granite may seem utilitarian, it can actually be quite artistic if used correctly. Combine smaller pieces of granite into a mosaic just as you would with tile or other stone.

This is a great way to use up pieces of granite that may be left over from other projects and turn them into a statement in your home’s decor. Again, unlike wood or other artwork, granite will withstand temperatures in your house year-round.

The possibilities are endless
