How to Shop for Granite

For your next home improvement or remodeling project, consider the many uses of granite when you update your property. A popular choice for most home remodels is adding granite countertops to a kitchen. This guide will give some ideas on how to shop for granite.

  • First, make sure granite is the rock you want. There are other natural stones used like marble, but the makeup of marble and granite is very different. While they may look similar, granite is more durable than marble and doesn't chip nearly as easily.
  • Make sure the stone sample you see in the store is actually geological granite. Some stones are called granite when they aren't, at least not scientifically. Always double check and ask the sales assistant if you are unsure. If you still like the stone, then by all means get it, but don't get taken advantage of by buying a stone that you thought was granite and instead turns out to be something else. If you feel the sales associate is misleading you, though, then go elsewhere and use a different company for your purchase.
  • Choose a color that coordinates well with your floor and cabinets. In fact, you can decorate and design your kitchen around the color of your counter tops. Tile backsplashes and tile floors, for example, can be bought that accentuate the color of the room.
  • Visit the manufacturer's warehouse if at all possible. Once there you will see the supply of granite slabs. Note that each one has slight color variations. Choose the slab that you like best for your kitchen. The select of slabs is best when done here, as the supply is far greater than at most stores.
