Granite countertops are popular additions to kitchens due to their uniqueness, durability, and aesthetic value. Installing a granite countertop is a dreadful experience, especially to first-timers since you simply can’t walk into a store and purchase a countertop off a shelf. You will need to select a stone counter besides hiring fabricator and installer. The following tips come in handy during countertop fabrication.
Work With a Local Fabricator
It is advisable to work with a local fabricator who can easily visit your home to inspect your kitchen, and make any suggestions that might be appropriate. Besides this, working with local fabricators saves you money since granite is heavy and certainly, you do not want to incur heavy shipping costs.
Find the Right Type of Stone For Your Kitchen
Once you decide to install quartz or marble countertops, you should do some research about the type of granite that is available in your local area. If you are looking for a particular stone, consider narrowing down your search to fabricators who have the material.
Coordinate Your Stone With Other Kitchen Elements
When picking out new stone countertops, you should ensure that they blend seamlessly with other kitchen elements such as cabinets and the floor. In doing so, nothing will look out of place once your kitchen gets that much-desired makeover.
Work With the Template
Once you’ve decided on the type of stone that you will use and the fabricator knows how much you will need, you should ask him/her to make a template of your kitchen counter. Fabricators use this template to cut the stone to a size that fits your kitchen countertops.
