 How you choose  thickness for granite countertops?

An optimal thickness for kitchen granite countertops is 3/4". Since granite is a heavy material (12 lbs/sq. ft), thicker granite should be avoided as it puts huge amounts of stress on your cabinets. For a thicker show, a double edge treatment, such as double bullnose edging is recommended. This makes granite appear 1-1/2” thick without adding additional stress on your cabinets. However, Hyperbetter can also supply granite in 3cm thickness if requested.
