Is it worth it if it means a seam?
We are replacing our countertops with granite. I have a huge island that is currently 9.5 ft x 5.5 ft. We have the space to extend the end and add a piece like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/56787645273382832/ . It would add an extra foot to the length of the island. Extending the island would also mean that our stools would have a little better spacing than they do now. But it would also almost guarantee that our one-piece island granite would now have a seam. Would you do it if it means a seam?
