Most of granite slab colors are Polished. However, if your selected slabs are not available in honed or leathered, we have the capability of honing or leathering any granite slab for a small additional charge.
We always recommend that you come to our showroom in Northern Virginia and inspect the granite slabs in person. You should never select a granite countertop color from a picture or sample. Granite is a natural stone and each slab has unique characteristics, veining, and shade of color. Also, each granite slabs has some flaws, which is part of the beauty of the natural stone. The more you learn about the natural stone, the more pleased you will be with your granite countertops. Our design consultants are trained to point out granite slab characters such as fissures, pits, color variation, etc.
Another factor to consider when selecting your granite countertop color is to imagine how your countertops design will flow with the pattern of the granite slabs. Sometimes, granite slabs look very gorgeous when look at the entire slab, but not when they are cut to countertop width. For example granite countertops with linear veining does not tend to work will with L-shaped or U-shaped kitchen designs. With exotic and granite slabs with vein, it is important to ask your fabricator for a slab layout before your countertop is fabricated and installed. Euro Stone Craft is one of the very few companies in the nation that uses SlabsSmith technology for digital slab layout. With the help of SlabSmith advanced hardware and software, we can digitally layout your countertop design over you selected slabs. You will be able to see how the seams come together and how your entire kitchen countertop will look like, before it is being fabricated. Our design consultants are able to advise you with your selection of granite slab. Our showroom in Herndon VA is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm, and on Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Appointments are not necessary, but highly encouraged.
