A designer’s tip for budget granite counters

Enid2kitchenaftersink_2I asked local designer Enid Harris if she could recommend anyone who sold granite counters really cheap.

Here’s what she said:

“I don’t have any low-budget granite or slab people . . . nor would you want one! The best tip I can offer is the one I used: Ask a stone setter if they’d be willing to sell off any unused portion of another client’s job.

The truth is the client has already paid for the stone so it’s an incentive for the stone setter to make a little extra money as well as getting another job for the fabrication.

The homework the homeowner should do ahead of time is get the square footage of the counter they’re doing as well as the price of the stone they want.”

Thanks Enid!
