Granite slabs are the gold standard in stone countertops, but those slabs don’t come cheap, and the installation of the slabs isn’t going to be any easier to stomach, either. If you really want the look and feel of granite, though, you can still get it at a fraction of the cost with granite tiles. You don’t even have to source the material yourself: You can order kits online from Lazy Granite, and if you are disinclined to DIY, hire a tile installer to finish the job. You will still come out far ahead financially than you would have if you’d laid out the money for those granite slabs!
