Your granite countertop play a starring role in your kitchen design, helping set the style and tone for the heart of your home. There are so many options. You’re afraid of making a bad decision — and who wouldn’t be? But choosing your kitchen countertops doesn’t have to be difficult. By determining your design profile, you’ll learn what works for you, making choosing countertops easy and fun.

The first step in finding your design profile is to ask some simple questions. Start by asking, “How much can I spend?” If you’re on a budget or with more resources, granite, natural stone are excellent choices.

Next, ask yourself, “What’s my lifestyle?” Different circumstances will rate different materials. For example, families with children will want something durable and stain-resistant; gourmet cooks will prefer hard-working materials and avid entertainers will like a marriage of high style and convenience.

Now that you’ve got a handle on the types of countertop materials that might work for you, it’s time to start focusing on the last piece of the puzzle: your personal style preference. Think about your clothes and accessories. Ask yourself, “What do I like to wear in colors, styles and textures?
