Granite is nice, but expensive. Make sure you have the company selling the counter tops come and measure it, so you can hold them accountable if it doesn't fit. If there is a wall on each side of your counter top, make sure the wills are drywalled and cabinets installed before the measurements are taking. Don't believe any of the talk about accounting for a half inch on each side, either. The tolerance is so tight that the length will be affected if there is any bow or dip in your wall. If it butts up to a wall but extends out like a peninsula, it will forgive a little, but if the counter fits between two walls or an floor to ceiling cabinet and wall, there is no room to wiggle. If you have laminate and have to shave a quarter inch, it won't break your heart, but a $4,000 counter top makes you very leary about making any cuts. BTW make the factory cut out for your sink, and have a bunch of people help support the counter if you are installing it. You remember how you use short screws to fasten the laminate counters to the cabinet? You don't screw in granit counters. They are adhered with a glue or liquid nail to the cabinet. You also have to use an oil sealer after you install the counter. It will look dull when you get it, and it will be porous until you apply the sealer.
