StonePly offers Baltic Brown Granite for your Building Needs
A hot trend among granite colors today is the use of Baltic Brown granite, which offers warmth and beauty to many places in the home, including kitchens and bathrooms. This blog post offers background and information on Baltic Brown granite as well as how it can be used to enhance the look of your home.
All about Baltic Brown Granite
Baltic Brown granite is also known as Rapakivi granite, which is Finnish for “crumbly rock.” The name comes from the fact that this particular type of granite can crumble more in its natural environment due to the heat expansion it is exposed to over time. This particular type of granite contains large crystals that offer a textured look to the colors throughout, including green and black accents mixed among the various shades of brown. It is coarse grained and has a higher level of pitting than other types of granite.
Although it is found in Finland, Baltic Brown granite can also be quarried in places throughout North and South America as well as Greenland, India, China and Southern Africa.
Applications for Baltic Brown Granite
Some of the earliest known applications for Baltic Brown granite were in stone churches in Finland. However, in modern times, this particular color of granite has been widely used for residences, including floors, kitchen and bath countertops, vanities, bars, fireplace surrounds and hearths, shower and bath surrounds, wall cladding and windowsills.
This granite color is a good choice if you are looking to create a sense of warmth to your home as the brown, green, and black hues within it offer a darker look. It can be used with all types of cabinet colors and décor, including both light and darker cabinetry and flooring. With white cabinetry, the Baltic Brown granite creates an attractive contrast and adds color while it blends with darker cabinetry for a homey feel.
