Selecting your Dream Stone
First, use tools that are easily accessible to start your preparation. The web has great resources for motivation and inspiration. Browse websites such as Pinterest, or Houzz to get an idea of colors that match your style.

Things to Keep in Mind When Selecting
STONE – Every stone has its advantages and disadvantages. Some etch more easily; others are highly durable. Some are cool and ideal for bakers; others can tolerate hot pans and dishes with ease. Investigate the different kinds of stone and what works best for your needs.
COLOR – It is important to decide how your countertop will function in the overall scheme of your room. Will it be a contrast or an accent? Do you want the color of your countertops to blend with other elements, or to highlight them?
MOVEMENT AND CHARACTER – Variance in the slab, such as the amount of veining, swirls, pebbles, or flecks, will also impact whether your countertop is a contrasting, complementary, or statement element in your room. Consider what part of the kitchen you want to stand out most, as that will factor into your ultimate selection.
FINISH – Highly polished, textured, matte, natural – there are several options when it comes to countertops. Finishes help create the overall look of a room. Do you want your room to have an Old World look? A modern look? Knowing your overall desired look will help you move quickly through the slab selection process.
