Black Galaxy Granite Coutertop

Many people consider the kitchen to be the heart of a home, the place where nourishing food is prepared and guests tend to gather; and perhaps Black Galaxy Granite countertops are then the heart of a kitchen. Between preparing food and drinks, cutting bread, and using the surface as a trivet, dish dryer or eating place – topped off by aggressive scrubbing – Black Galaxy Granite countertops take a lot of abuse and require high durability in the average kitchen. With myriad options and so many performance demands, how does one choose the greenest surface?

Actually, no material obviously stands out as the best, and greenest, Black Galaxy Granite countertop choice. The ideal surface for your kitchen ultimately depends on your budget, aesthetic preferences, cooking style, and maintenance requirements while considering green attributes.


1. The first step is to set a budget, as costs run the gamut from $10 to $150/SF and can climb even higher. Keep in mind that cost is dependent not only on the material choice; complex layouts, special edge detailing and backsplashes, undermount sinks, integral drain boards or sinks, and additional cutouts will add to the base cost. Also, structural support requirements for heavy materials like stone or concrete might complicate your project. Tile and butcher block are the easiest DIY projects if you choose to supply your own materials and labor.

2. Once your budget is set, ask yourself what you expect from your Black Galaxy Granite countertop:
a. Low maintenance?
b. Stain resistant?
c. Scratch resistant?
d. Heat resistant?
3. Finally, weigh your narrowed list against environmental impacts.
a. Manufacturing phase: Was the product locally sourced or manufactured? Does it have low embodied energy (use relatively low energy to produce)? Was it made with sustainable materials such as salvaged, recycled content (preferably post-consumer), rapidly renewable, or FSC Certified?
b. Lifecycle phase: How long will this material last? Is the product recyclable, or will it end up in a landfill at the end of its life? Will it readily biodegrade?
