Not sure which granite countertops will look best in your home? You could test granite colors before investing in granite countertops. This affordable solution gives you time to really see how the granite will look in your home. If you love it, great! If not, you’ve only spent a few hundred dollars, not several thousand. Read on to learn a cheap way to test granite in your home.

View Granite Samples for Inspiration

It may be a good idea to look at granite samples before choosing faux granite for your home. This will help you see different color patterns available in nature that you can mimic with countertop refinishing. You could view samples online or visit a local stone yard for options. You can find just about any color combination, but you’ll soon see which colors are most easily accessible. This will help you narrow down your options.

As you explore granite samples, decide if you want dark granite or light granite. Think about the base colors and accent colors you’d like for the stone. Perhaps you want a mostly-white stone with grey veins running through it. You may want black granite with hints of beige or grey. Once you have an idea for what you want the granite to look like, you can test the look in your kitchen.

Get Countertop Refinishing to Test Granite Colors

Countertop refinishing is the perfect way to get the look of granite without the hefty investment. In this process, a new glaze is applied directly over your existing countertops. There is no demolition or time-consuming installation. Our expert technicians can use just about any color combination you could think of to create faux stone countertops in your kitchen. Then you can see what the granite will look like before investing in the stone.

We have to be honest with you though – you may not want granite after this! Many of our clients say they love their refinished countertops and get frequent compliments on their appearance. With countertop refinishing, you are not limited to the colors made from Mother Nature. If you want a specific color combination that just doesn’t exist in nature, we can create it for you. You’ll get the exact look you want for a fraction of the cost, and you can enjoy the look for years to come.

What Do I Choose First: Granite, Cabinets, Paint Colors, Tile…?

The steps in kitchen remodeling are not always linear. Perhaps you have a set of wood cabinets that you absolutely love. You may want to base your color schemes around that wood. On the other hand, you may hate your cabinets but love your tile floor. You may be waiting for the perfect slab of granite to come along, and then you’ll choose colors after that. The trick is to find that one piece you want to base the colors around, and then build off that.

If you decide to go with countertop refinishing, we can help you find the right colors for the existing color scheme of your kitchen.
