Long thin slabs can be used.

Finishes other than polished can be used.

Window sills / Door and window frames:

Slab edges can be rounded or chamfered, and polished.

Kitchen Platforms - home:

Fine grain material looks better than coarse grain.

Material should be checked for staining, water absorption and pin holes.

Front edges of slabs can be rounded and polished, or water-restraining strip can be put.

For backsplash area, use granite strips in lengths matching the countertop lengths.

Kitchen Platforms - commercial:

Defective material can be used to lower the cost since hygiene is the main consideration.

Bathroom Platforms:

Rounding of edges or cut-out of basins should be got done from a professional company.

Counter Tops:

3 cm thick slabs look better than 2 cm ones.

Front edge can be profiled and shaped and polished.

Shelves e.g for showpieces at home / shops:

Tiles or thin slabs with both surfaces polished can be used.

Edges can be rounded or chamfered, and polished.

Standing Dividers:

Table Tops and other furniture:

Buy only when completed including the edges and the legs.

Nameplates:

Fine-grain black granite with edges chamfered gives the best contrast with the lettering.
