Installing granite counter tops in your home is a great way to improve the look and overall design of your kitchen. However, shopping for these countertops involves much more work than simply selecting a countertop and paying for it, and it is important to be aware of the process involved in buying granite countertops so that you can make an informed decision about your home decor.

Knowing Your Home

Before you go out to purchase granite countertops, it is crucial that you know both where you want to put your granite countertops and the exact dimensions of your current countertops. Taking measurements before you go to purchase granite will help budget your remodeling efforts as you shop around (granite is sold by square footage) and will eliminate the need for you to set up home estimates with different companies, which will save time.

Selecting a Slab

After selecting a granite provider, it will be time to select a color. Granite comes in many different colors, and each granite has unique veins and streams of color. Also, make sure to ask if it is possible to select the actual slab of granite that will be used in your home. Selecting the slab is very important because granite color and design can vary widely within each color group. Selecting your own slab will ensure that there are no surprises after installation, and you achieve the look you want.

The Installation Process

Once the slab has been picked, it is time for the professionals to take over. The granite will be sized, cut and installed in your home. Set up the installation for a time when you will be home, and make sure there is nothing on your existing countertops before the installer's arrival. Once the installation is finished, it's time to pay for your new granite countertops.
