Mistakes to Avoid when Choosing Your New Granite Countertops
Each family or household has a variety of reasons why it’s possibly time to upgrade their countertop. This could range from maybe your older countertop is dated, or you just want to add a personalized new flare to your household, whatever the reason, there are a few things to take into strong consideration before you jump into a granite countertop.
Know The Basics of Granite
Before you visit your local slab yard it’s best to know that each piece of granite is unique with its own distinctive look-and-feel. Granite can be eye catching and an amazing focal point for your kitchen or bathroom. However, it can also be one of the more expensive stones which makes getting your questions answered before you select your granite slab much more important. The last thing you would want to do is make a choice you may regret.
Less Seams Is More
When you’re shopping for that perfect slab of granite make sure to communicate with your retailer the dimensions you need in order to get as few seams as possible. Fewer seams makes the granite truly stand out, the last thing you want is a beautiful stone with seamed patterns throughout your countertop.
Stay On Topic
Edging can play a huge role when trying to tie everything together, make sure you’re choosing an edge that compliments your cabinets or vanity. For example the clean beveled or flat edges look amazing when paired with modern cabinets. If your cabinets are more traditional then you may want more of a bull nose to compliment. Also take the time to plan out for children, if you have young children you may want to round the bottom corners in risk of head bumps.
