Granite countertops are known for their natural beauty, durability and versatility. They can be used for a wide range of interior and exterior designs. They come in different colors and in various edges, thicknesses, and finishes. It can be challenging to find the best granite options for your Kitchen and Bar countertops, vanity tops, table tops, fire places, tub decks and specialized solid surfaces for your outdoor kitchen in your Omaha home, but there are certain factors that you should consider to be able to simplify the search and pick the right type and color for your needs. Here is a quick guide to finding the right granite for your countertop:
The Four Basic Decisions to Make
Color is one of the most important factors when choosing a granite countertop. Pick a color that suits your kitchen décor. Colors, streaking, and shades in granite tend to vary because it is a natural stone, but you should be able to find something that is speckled, veined, or solid to go with the look that you are trying to achieve.
The right choice when it comes to edge finish really depends on personal taste. Some suppliers can customize the finish to suit your architectural and interior design goals. The most common edge finishes are Eased, Beveled, Half Round, Full Round, Euro, Bull Nose, Ogee, Rolled, and chiseled. Think about the type of sink that you want to install. Decide whether you want an under-mounted or drop-in sink as this can influence your functionality and aestheics.
Thickness is another factor to consider. You will find that most granite countertops come in either 3cm or 2cm (1 1/4” or 3/4”) thicknesses. 3CM (1 ¼”) granite tends to be more popular because it is heavier and can cover longer spans without the risk of chipping or breaking with normal usage environment. Shop and compares prices with reputed fabricators and suppliers in your market area, if you want to get the best deals.
It is recommended that you work with a reputable company that specializes in designing, fabrication, and installation of granite countertops for homes in Omaha. You can count on their expertise to guide you in choosing the best granite countertops for your kitchen, while ensuring the highest-quality design and products. High-quality granite countertops are manufactured using state of the art technology like automated CNC edge profilers and laser bridge saws. They are also installed by fully trained and certified in-house technicians.
