Granite seam is hideous
April 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I had granite countertops installed yesterday and to my surprise they pieced together two pieces on a very small are. The seam is about 3 inches from my undermount sink, gets light from a window over the sink and looks hideous. I went with granite and was upsold from vinyl because they said I could avoid seams that way given the profile I wanted. It looks like a crack that's been repaired. I'm talking with the store manager and designer to see if they will remedy the situation, but I'm wondering what you Houzzers think about how this looks. My kitchen is small, I'm on a budget and was SO SO SO excited to get these countertops and finish freshening up a 30-year-old kitchen. I'll refrain from naming the companies responsible until they have had a chance to make good on this, but I am I'm bummed. What do you think and what should I do?
