If you’re looking for the perfect stone for your kitchen or bathroom countertops, limestone is an excellent choice. Limestone has become increasingly popular and has a fascinating origin: It is made over many years through fossils, shells, aquatic life, and sand.

Why Limestone Countertops?

Limestone is a sophisticated-looking stone and brings elegance and class to any room. Many homebuyers find this material appealing and it can not only increase the value of your home, but potentially help with the sale of it. The high-end look appeals to many buyers and can be an investment.

Another advantage of limestone is the cost. There is an abundance of the stone since it is easily mined. It is generally less expensive than some other materials, which allows you to keep your budget on track while still having a spectacular looking countertop.

Finally, if you are looking for an eco-friendly option to decorate your home, then travertine would be the best option for you, since it is an environment-friendly natural product.

There are some things to keep in mind when considering limestone. Compared to granite and some other materials, limestone is more fragile. Limestone is a pliable stone and can be easily scratched and etched. It can also be discolored or grazed. Since it is a porous material, it can easily react with anything acidic. Be sure to keep direct heat from the surface, wipe up any spills immediately, and use cutting boards if you have any chopping or cutting to do. It is also important to have your limestone countertops installed by trained professionals like Graniterra.

Like travertine and some other countertop materials, limestone does need some additional care and can seem high maintenance, but as long as you are careful, your countertop will be beautiful for many years.

Graniterra offers limestone countertop options, in addition to many more including granite, marble, quartz, and Corian. Call us at 314.533.3366 or visit our design studio today so we can help you make your dream kitchen a reality.
