Adding slab pictures to your countertop drawings

by | Feb 15, 2016 | CounterGo Tips

A great feature in CounterGo is adding pictures of slabs when you’re doing the drawing and layout of a countertop.

Why?

Help your customers visualize what they’re getting. As a countertop expert, you’ve probably developed a skill for imagining the finished product. But, for most homeowners, buying a new granite countertop is a one-in-a-lifetime event. There’s a common saying in the stone industry, “People buy with their eyes.

If you can help your future customers understand how their kitchen will look with a new color of granite, there’s a much better chance they’ll buy from you.

Predict if seams will look decent. Seam placement can be important, especially for stones that have strong veining and movement. CounterGo can give you a quick idea if your seams will look good.

Figure out if you need that third slab. How many slabs you need for a particular job really depends on the layout of the kitchen, the material, and seam placement. If you have all of those things at your fingertips, you may be able to convince homeowners that they should spring for an additional slab of granite to get the kitchen of their dreams.
