Tan Brown Granite
Tan Brown Granite
Granite has been used for flooring and counter tops in kitchens and bathrooms for a very long time.Â It is used primarily because of it’s durability, and look.Â Granite is a natural stone that is found all over the world, and can come in a large variety of different colors.Â Granite is usually one of the most expensive materials that you will use when doing your kitchen and bathrooms.Â This is because it takes a lot of work to make granite look the way it does when you look at them in the showroom.
When they get the granite from the deposits it will be very big, granite deposits are normally very large and it take a lot of work to get the pieces out as big as they can get them.Â Also when they do get the granite it is in a very rough form, most of the preparation to get it to a finished look is done after it is taken from the earth. When they take the granite from the quarries it will be taken in huge block form, but before it is transported it has to be made into manageable pieces.Â These pieces are still very big but small enough to be taken to the stockyard.Â From there it is taken to the production plant to be cut into their final forms.Â Once there it could take up to a couple days to cut the slabs into a desired thickness depending on the density of the granite.Â From there it is taken to another part of the building where it is made smooth with different types of grinding wheels and buffers.Â It is there where it is also coated with a sealant that makes the granite stain resistant.Â Finally it is put onto ships and taken to the United States to be sold to home, and business owners.
Now depending on what colors you are interested in will determine where the granite has come from.Â This is because what color the granite will be is effected by what kinds of minerals are in the granite.Â And different parts of the world have different minerals.Â Another thing this effects is the price of the granite you will be getting.Â Depending on what type it is will determine how much because some granite is very rare, or in some cases the process to make it suitable for your home takes longer then other types of granite.
One type of granite that is very popular is called Tan Brown Granite, this granite comes from India and is very popular in the United States.Â It is because the colors that are in it are very contemporary and have a rich look to it.Â Another pleasing factor is that the shade of browns and tans that are in it pretty much can go with any other colors that you plan on using in your home.Â Due to the popularity of granite you can find these types of granite at almost any home improvement store in your area.Â But if you are planning on doing a lot of granite work in your home I would suggest going on line to find a distributor.Â I say this because if you buy a lot you may get some kind of price break, and the more important reason would be that at the distributor they will have enough of the same lot to give to you.Â Since granite is a natural stone there are many different color variations and if you get a lot of it from a store they may not have enough of one lot for you, and the next lot may have a different pattern or color in it.Â That would make it almost impossible for you to match the colors in your home where no one would notice.Â You can find distributors all over the country on the Internet, and sometimes there are a lot cheaper then the actually home improvement stores.
One good thing is that granite is very versitile, you can use it in many places in your home.Â You can used it in your kitchen, bathroom, all through out your house on the floors.Â You can even use granite tile outside on your porch and patio.Â The granite that you find out there is made the same but the time is not taken to get it as smooth as granite that is used for counter tops.Â This granite has a rougher finish because you have to walk on it.Â You can get this granite in any color like the granite used for your counter tops.
