Granite Countertops, What You Should Know Before Purchasing.

granite countertops, things your should know before purchasing. White granite kitchen countertop with island.What should you know before purchasing Granite countertops?

To help our customers in their search, we asked our sales team what they thought was important for customers to know before purchasing granite countertops for the first time.

1. Ask for granite samples, or bring in samples of your home.

If possible, ask for color samples of the stone to compare the color of your kitchen and the color of your cabinets. Some granite materials have flecks of metal in them, such as our “Volga Blue Granite“. Bringing a sample home, you will be able to see how light refracts from your lighting fixtures and the natural lighting in your home. If there are no samples, bring your samples of things such as your curtains, cabinets, paint swatches, or even favorite countertop accessories such as stand mixers. Sometimes it is difficult to visualize how the end product will turn out, but bringing samples will help you eliminate colors that will clash with your kitchen.

2. Touch and get a feel of the different edge profiles.

Make sure to select the right countertop edge profile for the style of your kitchen. ADP offers several edge profiles standard in their pricing packages, so you will be able to select the edge profile that compliments your kitchen. We recommend using an eased edge profile because it gives the stone the right appearance of thickness without being sharp to the touch. If our standard options are not what you are looking for, we also offer premium edge profiles. Ogee edged countertops compliment cabinets with detailed scroll-work and mitered/laminated edges will make your stone appear at least twice as thick.

3. Do your research on maintenance and other options for countertops.

Have a realistic idea of how to maintain and care for granite countertops. While granite is an incredibly durable material, it is still a pourous natural stone that will need to be resealed and cared for properly in order to keep it looking new. If you think the upkeep for granite will be difficult for your lifestyle, you should see if there is a better stone for your countertops. Our guide on selecting kitchen countertop materials will help walk you through the specific limits of each stone.

4. Have a good idea of what you like before shopping for material.

Sometimes this is as easy as knowing that you prefer dark countertops over light countertops, or that you would prefer a black countertop to pair with your white kitchen cabinets. Everyone has their style and taste and coming prepared with pictures from online will help your salesperson find your dream granite material. To see samples of the materials ADP Currently keeps in stock, visit our “Granite Orlando” page.
