There are thousands of absolutely stunning photos of granite countertops online, but that doesn’t mean you should select a stone based solely on what you see online. The reason for this is that unlike quartz, every piece of granite is different and one piece of granite may look entirely different than another piece of the same color.
Another reason is that a lot of photos on the internet are taken with the best possible lighting and edited so that the countertop stands out.
The photos that we upload are very minimally edited (cropped with a logo added) but that doesn’t mean that the photos are entirely representative of what the countertop actually looks like. In most cases the final product looks a lot better than what you see in the photos.
But back to the topic at hand, if you fall in love with a unique piece of granite online I guarantee the slab in the showroom will look different. But different doesn’t have to mean bad! If you think about it, would you rather order countertops online without knowing what exactly they’ll look like? Or would you want to walk around a show room, look at different slabs of the same color, notice what make them unique, compare the way different stones feel, and then make an informed decision about what you want your kitchen to look like for years to come?
Luckily for you, Granite Surfaces of Texas has a showroom AND a slab yard! That means you can pick a color you like in the show room and then one of our extremely knowledgeable salespeople can walk you through the slab yard so you can pick out the exact stone that you’re putting in your home!
