Tips for Using Granite Samples to Match Your Backsplash Tips for Using Granite Samples to Match Your Backsplash

Using granite samples to determine which color or design is best for your backsplash is a great idea. Many companies will allow you to take samples home to test out. If you are considering using granite samples to remodel your kitchen countertops, here are a few tips to keep in mind. 

Tip 1 - Each Piece Is Different

Keep in mind that while the granite sample you are testing out may be very similar to the granite that the store sells, no pieces are exactly the same. When you narrow down the color you like, find a few samples in that color to ensure that you feel the same about each piece.

Tip 2 - Test One at a Time

Choosing granite can be difficult when you are looking at several sample pieces at once. It can be helpful to put up one sample at a time. Keep one color out for a few days to see how you feel about it, and then take it down and do the same with the next.

The most important thing is to take your time when choosing granite. Leave the samples up for several days or several weeks to ensure you still like what you picked out.
