Selecting granite like selecting a mate, one interior designer says

If you’re interested in replacing your floors or countertops, one option you’ll have is to go with the beauty and durability of granite. Even once you make the decision to go with some type of granite, however, don’t expect to be done shopping around. There are all types, colors, and textures of granite to choose from. That’s why Ana Piumbini, owner of Granite Forever USA, said, "You cannot take granite for granted. Matching the right granite with the right person is like a marriage."

Granite could last forever

Piumbini’s business handles granite importation and sales, which explains why she knows so much about it. Granite is one of the most long-lasting and durable material you could choose to put in your home and will outlast you and possibly the home itself. Thus, Piumbini said she sees a "sentient quality in helping to fine tune one’s home through the use of exotic stone design."

Redecorating is an artistic process

Piumbini is trained as a business woman and an artist, which explains why she takes the selection of granite so seriously. She looks at every decorating project as "a poetic endeavor," so when she completes the design for a room it is important to her that it "compliments [the room] in an elegant and graceful manner." If you as a home owner are thinking about renovation or redecorating, you might take a leaf out of her book and see your project in the same light. It could make all the difference.
