Home Improvement
When you are deciding what material to go with for your kitchen counters, it is almost a no brainer. Granite kitchen countertops in Norcross are one of the most popular and sought after materials to have your counters made out of. There are several benefits to marble. It will never go out of style. It is insanely durable. It is very easy to clean and resists all stains. Also, you don't have to worry about putting hot items on it, since it will never leave a mark. It goes without saying that granite is one of the chicest choices available to you as a homeowner. Here are some tips for picking out your own granite countertops for your dream kitchen.

Find a Retailer

The first step to finding a great kitchen countertop is to find a retailer within a reasonable distance to your home. You want to be able to see your granite in person before you order it. you may like the color of a certain kind of granite, but when it arrives at your door, you could be surprised by how large some of sections of stone are. When you are making a purchase this big, and having something this heavy shipped to your home, you want to know that you are getting a product that you already love. It is important to see what different kinds of granite are out there so you can be certain that you are getting the very best for your home.

Notice Markings

When looking through slabs, you typically get to choose the exact slab you would like to take home. It is very common for granite to have different streaks throughout the stone, and you will be able to select the exact slab that will work for you. Some people love the character that a large streak can show because it really tells a story about the stone and adds color and definition. You are also sure to know that the granite is real if it has streaks. However, other prefer a more uniform look to their counters without any streaking whatsoever. You will have to find the granite that works for you, and make sure you select the slabs that you want.


As with anything that has to do with remodeling, you should mark the price. You always need a budget, and granite is a stone that can start pretty cheaply, but has the capacity to get very expensive quickly. You probably had no idea before you started looking at granite that there was so much difference and variety, but there are several different kinds of granite from different locations in the world. Obviously, most of the time granite that has been shipped overseas will be more expensive than locally hewn granite. Make sure you note the price and origin while you are narrowing down the shopping process.

Correct Measurements

It is an absolute must that you have the correct measurements for your granite kitchen countertops in Norcross. If you are planning on having a small backsplash you must factor this in as well as the regular measurements of your counters. If you find one slab that you are absolutely in love with, but it has no twin slab that is close enough to match in your kitchen, you will probably want to look at other choices. One fun little service that your granite cutter will usually be willing to do for you is give you the square that he or she cuts out for the sink so that you have a matching custom cutting board for your kitchen. Just make sure that your granite cutter has the correct measurements to work with.
