How to Select a Unique Stone for Your Countertops

October 05, 2011

Want to know how to create that "wow" factor like a top kitchen designer? According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, many designers report that the countertops should command the most attention in the kitchen above all else - lighting, cabinetry and flooring. Because of its durability and endless possibilities of patterns and colors, stone countertops remain a popular choice for creating eye-catching focal points in any style of design, from traditional to country to urban contemporary.

The type of stone you choose will depend on how you use your countertops, your personal aesthetic and the look and feel you want to achieve in your kitchen. Whether you opt for granite, marble, Caesarstone or ceramic, the beauty is that every slab of stone is completely unique with its own variegation and movement. This is why so many choose stone but also why it is important to choose the stone in person. Ensuring you get the exact stone you want requires going to a well-lit, indoor facility (with your designer or architect) and handpicking the stone for yourself.

Marble and Granite believes in the importance of clients handpicking stone for their personal projects, which is why we offer two well-lit showrooms located at 125 Old Gate Lane in Milford, Connecticut and at 270 University Avenue in Westwood, Massachusetts.
