What should I consider when purchasing granite countertops? – #15DaysOfGranite

Granite countertops are usually the most expensive part of your kitchen remodeling projects, so when you spend that much money, you’d want to consider some things before making the choice of granite!

So as part of our #15DaysOfGranite series, we’re going to talk about the things that should be taken into consideration when choosing your granite countertops.

One thing you should keep in mind is that granite is a creation of nature, and it has a unique natural beauty that has been used in architecture throughout the ages. Since it’s made by nature, each piece is unique and matchless. Customers who may not be familiar with these materials may expect the granite or marble they order to be identical to pictures or samples they might have seen. Although sample stones are intended to be representative of the material, the granite quarried at on time may differ slightly in color and veining from the sample that the customer might have seen. Moreover, even a single granite slab will posses a certain amount of color variation from one end to the other. These slight irregularities are what will make your project unique and different from any other.

Please do keep this in mind when you’re ready to purchase granite countertops. The best thing to do is to pick out the slab yourself from one of the warehouses that your fabricator purchases slabs from.

In tomorrow’s #15DaysOfGranite series, we will look at the following question:
