Choosing the right granite slab for your kitchen countertops can feel overwhelming with the vast selection available! VE Stone Ltd. in Surrey shares some expert tips to help your selection process go smoothly if you’re a first-time granite shopper.
Go with your gut
Often, the granite slab that stands out to you the most at first is likely the best choice. If you’ve found a slab that you felt matches your cabinets, flooring, and other design elements, take note of it. Often looking at dozens of granite slabs with different tones and patterns can feel daunting and make the decision-making process harder. Instead, consider that one that made you think, “Wow! I really like this one!” and go with your gut.
You can choose an area of a granite slab
Because every slab is so unique, it will have varying graining and colour tones throughout the slab. If you liked the veining or colours in one area of the slab, ask VE Stone if it’s possible to have that section on your countertop. Sometimes, depending on the countertop shape and size, your favourite part of the slab might not make it on the countertop. For example, for large flowing vein patterns on a granite slab, a sweeping kitchen island might work best to showcase that beautiful, natural design.
After reviewing your measurements, they can tell you how much of that favourite slab section will be visible on your new counter. They can also show you where to cut the slab, arrange the sections, and make seams on the countertop. This information might help you make your decision.
