It’s tough to choose granite from a small sample. Colors can vary within large pieces. And a color that looks attractive in a four-inch sample might be overwhelming in a six-foot countertop. Your bestÂ bet is to visit a granite warehouse, where you can view large slabs. Consider bringing samples of your flooring, paint and cabinets with you.
After you choose your granite, ask to see four or five slabs for comparison. Each is unique, and though the general color may be the same, you may prefer one pattern variation to another.
