3 Tips for Working with a Stone Fabricator

January 08, 2013

If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen, whether it’s because you’re bored with its design or you’re looking to tailor it more to your style, you should pay special attention to your countertops. Not only must the countertops fit the overall style of the kitchen while having a unique look on their own, they need to be durable and long lasting as well. This is why granite countertops are such a popular choice among homeowners. Granite is a natural stone that is available in hundreds of different styles and colors, and it will last practically forever. To get just the right granite countertop, it’s important that you work closely with a stone fabricator. Use these tips to do just that:

  1. Begin looking for granite counters as soon as you decide you want to remodel the kitchen by visiting a stone wholesaler or at www.marbleandgranite.com. This will help you figure out the potential of your design in the kitchen, and you can even remodel portions of the kitchen in support of the stone counter you choose. Speak to the fabricator about the design, as he or she can help you come up with design elements for your granite countertops.
  2. Ask the fabricator to see the template process. This way you can see the countertop laid out in sections, allowing you to make sure your favorite section of the granite slab isn’t omitted where the sink is cutout. Point out your favorite section to the fabricator and decide on how you want it used. A kitchen island is the perfect place for your favorite section.
  3. Don’t hesitate if you find a slab you’re in love with. Each slab is one of a kind, so secure its purchase immediately!
