Do you think it is impossible to visualize how exactly your granite countertops will look in your kitchen before you allow them to be installed?
Our opinion is that’s not true. Considering, the selection process of granite countertops offered by many installers, it would not be wrong to say that your final purchase will be a matter of luck. It helps to know more about granite so that you can appreciate what we are saying.
It’s Important To Keep In Mind Granite Is Natural
Natural granite is unique. It is different from many other remodeling products in the way that it cannot be produced artificially in terms of texture and color.
Granite is a naturally occurring stone that is extracted from the earth in the form of large slabs. If you’re fond of natural stones, you probably already know that. But, only an expert can understand how that impacts granite’s appearance. The earth is dug up to extract massive granite slabs. It’s no surprise that even within the same slabs, the veining, brightness, and colors, can vary greatly.
And this Leads To A Major Problem…
Assuming All Granite Countertops Will Look like the Sample
Some granite countertop sellers and installers show their customers only small samples (5 Inches square approximately) of the granite they intend to install.
A sample cannot guarantee that the granite you would use in your kitchen or bathroom will represent what you will receive eventually. The final product’s color, veining, and lightness or darkness can differ widely from the sample.
Secondly, using a name to describe granite (often based on a quarry’s name) is another way granite is classified. Now that can also be misleading for some people. Many homeowners believe that granite samples under a certain name will look the same. No, they won’t! There are always variations in natural rocks in every single piece.
In simpler terms, if you choose a granite countertop after seeing a sample or based on a specific granite name, there’s a good chance that you will be disappointed when the actual granite arrives at your home.
