As we already mentioned, it is important to make sure that your countertops match your current décor, and it is a good idea to have them so that they will match other styles of décor in the future. To make sure that you are going to get the absolute best match, it is a good idea to take samples of your current décor colors and patterns with you when you are looking at the various styles of granite countertops. This way, you will be able to see how well they go together. Of course, there are going to be certain colors that are just going to go with everything, such as black, white and gray. If there is nothing available that matches the color you are looking for, you can always ask to have your countertops custom made, so you can get exactly what you want.
Marble does have some distinct drawbacks as a countertop material. For starters, marble is a much softer stone than granite, so it has a greater tendency to scratch and mar than granite countertops. Additionally, polished marble is vulnerable to etching when acidic liquids are invariably spilled on it. These spots and marks can destroy the finish of your countertop; you can avoid this issue by choosing a honed finish in place of a polished finish, but most homeowners prefer the appearance of polished marble. Finally, marble is a porous, absorbent stone, meaning it tends to stain. While some homeowners like the patina their marble countertops develop over the years, many do consider it a drawback.
There are all kinds of different styles of granite countertops you can choose from, and, just like with color and texture, you can always have your countertops custom designed to match your décor. Don’t forget about corners too, and you can choose from beveled, rounded, bullnosed or other styles of edges.
