  • Granite

  • Appliances (yes before cabinets - so many new appliances need special cabinets)​

  • Cabinets

3. Don’t snub your slab

Don’t wait to purchase the countertop of your dreams. If you find a granite slab you love-- buy it. Natural stone means natural variance. Even if a stone is repurchased from the same supplier and the same quarry, and it will most likely not be the same stone you originally saw. Put a deposit down on a stone you love to ensure your happiness.
