Five Excellent Reasons To Choose Black Granite

by TM Maria Be a king in your own kingdom

Granite is known for its durability and strength, its low porosity, and its wide variety of textures and colors. Among this extensive range of granites, one stands out not only for the elegance and good taste that it transmits to the environments, but some of its properties make it a material with unique qualities. We are talking about black granite. 


The characteristics of black granite were already very popular in Ancient Egypt, where it was used for the elaboration of monuments, coatings, and even sarcophagi that have lasted for centuries. Today, black granite can be found in practically any environment — exterior or interior — due to its versatility.


Here are five reasons why black granite is an excellent choice for your projects. 


Tonalities, designs and textures

As with natural stones, there is no single design or piece of black granite that is the same as another. Likewise, there are different options for black granite that differ both in their composition and in their physical characteristics. The range of black granites goes from the Angola black granite, with a high density and faint white glints, through the PAIAST, which recalls a starry night with golden tones, which is recognized for its more pronounced streaks accompanied by blue highlights. 


Adaptable to any space

While black granite for kitchen countertops is regularly considered by professionals, it's not the only place where it can be perfectly adapted. Black granite is a material that fits perfectly both indoors and outdoors. Thanks to its resistance, it is an ideal option for floors and bathroom coverings, as well as for other kitchen furniture, such as drawers or sinks. It is also an ideal material for exterior facades and floors due to its durability and strength. Although black granite is low porosity, it is always advisable to apply a special sealer at least once a year so that the stone retains its qualities for longer. 


Decorative use and furniture

The sobriety of the black granite combined with natural stones of other shades results in environments full of harmony. The contrast generated by a polished black granite edge on a white natural stone floor adds a touch of elegance and vitality to these spaces. Likewise, black granite is an ideal material for dining or coffee tables, bars, breakfast bars, kitchen accessories or as a cladding for fireplaces thanks to its resistance to high temperatures. 


Insulating characteristics

The characteristics of black granite, as well as its composition and density, make this natural stone an extraordinary acoustic insulator that can mitigate outside sounds. Its physical qualities also make it a thermal insulator that can maintain the warmest temperatures inside, which translates into energy savings in the hottest or coldest seasons of the year.


Capital gain

Choosing a natural stone such as black granite for your project is not only leaning towards the unique and unrepeatable designs that nature has captured in stone over millions of years, but it is also deciding to generate added value to the spaces. With proper care, the black granite will remain with the majesty of the first day for a long time. This generates additional value in the future for spaces that have natural stones such as black granite over those that do not.
