The countertops are the focal point of your kitchen, affecting both the overall style and value of the room. It is an important decision that must be made carefully. However, there are a few things you can do to help make your decision easier.

Start by doing a little research on granite countertops. The internet is not only a good place to learn about which materials work best in different parts of the home, but it is also a good place to start looking.

Granite may significantly vary in pattern and color from similar samples so it is also important to see the actual slabs of granite in person. Stop by our showroom to see the stone slabs for yourself! This can help you really envision how your new kitchen countertops will look in your home. You can even bring paint swatches or cabinet samples to make sure everything looks good together.

Once you have made your final stone selection we are ready to proceed with production of your kitchen countertops. While all of this is going on, you should also be selecting your new sink, faucets, backsplash, etc. We will need to know how many holes to drill in the granite, and may need to see a specification sheet.

Decide if you would like to have a granite backsplash or new kitchen island to match your kitchen countertops. And don’t worry, we will walk you through everything, step by step.

When it comes to the maintenance of your granite countertops, that can be pretty easy too. For everyday cleaning, you just need water and a soft and dry white cloth. Make sure you dry off the countertop surface after wiping them down with water. You don’t need to buy any special granite countertop cleaner if you don’t want to. You do not need to worry about disinfecting your granite countertops. Granite is naturally non-porous so they will not harbor bacteria and germs. With the proper care and maintenance, your granite counters could last a lifetime!
