I have a kitchen island with a granite countertop which, for various reasons, I would like to make larger. I found a granite company which has a remnant of granite that would match the size I'd like.
The problem is, how do I tell whether it will match my other countertops? My counters are a pretty common granite 'pattern' (brown, black, and white splotches; very similar to this), and they all match perfectly. The piece they have looks very similar, but it's very hard to tell. I went to look at it with pictures of my counters, and looked at my counters with pictures of the remnant. But pictures are really bad at showing color, and I just can't tell.
I don't know if this is a question for diy, but can anyone figure out some way I can tell if it'll match? I assume they won't cut me a sample because that's a big job to do just for the possibility of maybe selling a remnant, plus that'll make the remnant smaller - in case I decide not to buy it, it might be harder to sell to someone else.
