The well-known Harris Research Company conducted this survey on behalf of the American Marble Association on 2021 American citizens over the age of 18 on October 7-9. The survey asked the respondents which countertop they would choose to decorate their ideal kitchen. The results showed that 55% of the respondents chose granite countertops, while only 18% chose artificial stone countertops.
When asked whether they agree that granite countertops can increase the value of a house transaction, 90% of the respondents strongly agree or somewhat agree.
American Marble Association Chairman Jim said: “This survey reaffirms that in the United States, granite has always been the most popular countertop on the market. After months of false reports on granite countertops, this survey shows that consumers still Think granite countertops are safe and harmless.”
In fact, 84% of the interviewees agreed that “granite is the safest, beautiful and durable kitchen countertop on the market today”.
Jim said: “The survey results show that granite countertops have won the love of consumers of different places, different genders, and different ages.”
This survey shows that American consumers have a fairly consistent attitude towards granite. Granite is widely welcomed by consumers of different age groups and income groups.
