I'm looking for recommendations for anyone who has had granite tile installed in their kitchen. I have a townhome and I don't want to put too much $$ into granite countertops, but like the look of granite tiles on countertops. Any recs are appreciated!

You can get 18" granite tiles instead of a one-piece counter top. It's much cheaper. You have the whole pieces set at the front of the countertop and then set half pieces at the back (most counters are 27" deep).

Try Panda Kitchens in Afton Village in Concord, I am a Realtor who builds a lot of specs and we use them to install all of our granite top tile or slab. Just google the name and area and you should be able to find the number, I am replying on the fly via pda or I would send you the number.

Did you think of doing it yourself? I took a tiling class at Home Depot and I've tiled several rooms on my own. It's very easy actually. The only thing that's difficult is cutting the tile, but you can draw the cuts and either bring the tiles to the home store to get cut or rent the equiptment (or borrow it if you know someone who has one). I've cut ceramic, marble, etc... I'm not sure how different Granite is to cut. It might just be the same wet saw, but different blade.
