WWYD Choose granite without viewing slabs??!
You were all so helpful 3 years ago when we renovated our kitchen. Since then, I continue to lurk, amazed by your knowledge and helpfulness.
My husband I and recently bought a small condo in Florida (future retirement hopefully). We're in NJ and are renovating the condo remotely.
We had always planned to fly down to choose our granite. Until Sandy hit.
Unfortunately, our NJ home was flooded. We are now managing two renovations and we can't see how we can get down to Fl now to select granite. My husband (NOT TKO) can't understand how I can't just choose something remotely!
We installed beige tile throughtout the small condo and are keeping the white (very white; not creamy white) cabinets.
I like a consistent stone without much movement.
Do you think I can ask the granite yard in Miami to email me pictures of some slabs? Thinking perhaps of Giallo Ornamental or Santa Cecilia. i can let them know that I would like the stones to read more beige/brown with some white.
We have Coast Green in NJ but I'm afraid that granite might be too inconsistent to purchase so far away.
What would you do? Thanks!
