granite seam around cooktop
We went to the stoneyard yesterday and chose a few granites we really like, one of which is a strong front-runner (persa avorio). When we asked about where seams would be placed in our small L of cabinetry, we were told seams wouldn't be placed on the side with the sink, or in the corner, but rather on either side of the cooktop placed on the long run of our L. I thought perhaps it'd be placed in the middle of the cooktop, but the gal told us that there would be two small pieces seamed in on the front and the back of the cooktop. I don't know a lot about granite, but didn't remember hearing about countertops being seamed that way. Is this common? Ok?
