  • Guys, would you have this fixed?

    Guys,

    I am pretty much complete with my basement/theater but I have a call out to my granite counter people to come back tomorrow afternoon and fix this.

    But, lately a few people have said they would leave it and not go to the hassle of fixing it...

    What do you think? (If they come I'm planning on taping off a tent for it all, I hate that dust mess...even with a wetsaw).

    This corner on the counter was suppose to be a 45 degree cut like the cabinet below it....

    Would you have them fix this? (no charge)

    Yes, might as well get it done like planned and have it match the cabinet below.

    No, it doesn't look too bad and the extra 2 inches of counter and the off look is fine.

    I say 'yes' to getting it fixed.
    - It was supposed to be done in the first place.
    - They're going to do it for free.
    - With the cut, I think the counter will better match the cabinet.

    And, hopefully, nothing gets screwed up. (Actually, I have no idea how hard - or easy - a job it is to do.)

      Having seen it in person, I vote "no." Visually, I think a squared off corner looks better regardless of the cabinet below it. It matches the upper cabinet which I think is more important. Also, there is less chance of messing something up.

        I have to agree with this point of view unless it just really bugs you, or your SO. I think the way it is or the 45 both look pleasing to the eye, especially when you factor in what mojave says about the cabinet above. I would also think there is a fair chance of something bad happening. Have they actually told you that it can be done in place?

          No, why give up free counter space? In my opinion in looks fine.

            Bottom line, is it still gonna bother you in a year or two if it's not done?
            Looks fine to me. Love the quality of the cabinets.

              See, it doesn't really bother me.

              I think it more bothers me that they didn't cut it in the first place per plans. (even if it wouldn't have looked as good re: square look:D).

              My wife I don't think cares (makes note to ask again).

              No one has asked that has been over.

              I'm leaning towards telling them no in the AM, but also have polls out on HTS and AVS. :woo:


              Thanks for the input guys....they said it isn't hard to do but I find it difficult to believe it will seamlessly blend into the rest of the counter, not to mention a possible mess with walls, carpet, and everything CLEAN. :confused:

                being a bit of a perfectionist, I would have it done - especially if
                I had designed (or planned) the 45deg cut in the cabinet below it.
                -but it does look fine the way it is.
                just imo

                  I don't think there is a wrong anser - I think both options look okay. But I voted to have the change done. It would bug me every time I looked at it knowing it wasn't the way it was supposed ot me.

                  Out of curiosity, why did you put a 45° angle on that cabinet but not on the top ones?

                    I dunno, I guess I thought more of how many times you hit your knee or something on a cabinet corner. And since the uppers are smaller and more inset than the lowers, it wouldn't be a problem for my large head.

                    And it was my first project. :D


                    Man, I have everyone split fairly 50/50 over all 3 forums. Hmm. Better ask wifey.

                      Flip a coin :).

                      From what I see there if the guys say they can do it on site then they can do it on site. Personally I don't think I would bother and from what I can see with the toys on the floor, you will probably have lots of other stuff grabbing your attention in the months and years to come...

                            I voted leave it, sharp edges like that with granite and little kids don't mix well.

                              A simple path to follow....

                              Problem Resolution Process

                              Okay, you have started on the right path –

                              1. Perform an Exploratory Survey Phase (started), then go on to a

                              2. Think Tank Session, which evolves into the

                              3. Consideration Council, then you have to convene a

                              4. Pondering Panel, who ultimately summons the

                              5. Eeny – Meeny – Miney – Moe Task Force to make a decision and this causes you to

                              6. Flip a coin to determine if you want to implement the decision…

                              7. Finally, regardless of how the coin flips, you decide to go by your emotional reaction to the flip. :applause: :applause: :applause: :biglaugh:

                              Either choice is right. :cool:
