Granite countertops are available in a variety of colors, ranging from white and cream to deep gray and forest green. Visit a home or kitchen design store and look through their selection of guides and samples to determine the color that will work best in your kitchen area. Ask if they allow customers to purchase or borrow samples so that you can take a few home and hold them next to your kitchen cabinetry.

One way to reduce the cost of a granite countertop is by purchasing your choice through a wholesaler. These companies will often charge a customer less than a home improvement store for the cost of installment and materials. If you are interested in a warranty to protect against damage, then it is important to ask these companies about what they will be able to provide in terms of insurance.

Granite can be easily cleaned with a mild soap and soft cloth, making the maintenance process an easy one.
