Most of us think that granite is just for kitchen countertops, when, in fact, there are many other uses in home construction or remodeling.
Why buy a sink that can be had by anyone when you can have one custom-made to match, or accent, your countertops? Some of our clients had complained that they couldn’t find a sink that was the right shape or size that fit in with the way they cook or entertain. A custom-made sink can be the solution to that issue.
Have a space for a tub in your new home or remodeling project? Consider a custom-made soaking tub. They can be fit to those who will be using it and equipped with any combination of jets, for a relaxing experience.
These can be customized to your lifestyle with or without glass doors. It’s fairly common to have steam or aromatherapy options.
When you think of the wear-and-tear that kitchen, bathroom, and dining room floors are subjected to, using a non-slip stone is an excellent alternative. Not only will they, literally, last a lifetime, they can be constructed with or without patterns. Pieced can also be waterjet cut into interesting motifs.
Whether or not there are remnant pieces of stone left over from your project, open, stone shelving allows you to show off your dinnerware and specialized cooking equipment. You also will know, at a glance, where everything is. Clean-up is a breeze, too.
When shopping for stone to be used in a project, we always see a slab or two that knock our socks off. Usually, they are too speedy to use in a large amount. How about taking all, or a portion of a slab and turn it into an accent piece. After all, stone in artwork made by Mother Nature.
Your basic, wooden fireplace surround might be nice, but how about upping the interest by using really nice accent stone instead. Also, adding a stone mantel will also add a nice anchoring design to the room.
If your project contains a main-floor stairway, especially if it can be seen from the front door, what a great opportunity to work stone into the design? It can be 100$ stone or you can mix wood with non-slip stone treads.
Cheese Board or Coasters
Often you have small pieces of granite left over from your sink cut out or excess from the length and are allowed to use the pieces, do it! Those pieces can make good cheese boards, serving boards or coasters. It is still not recommended to use it as a cutting board because it will dull your knifes.
Granite is one of the most durable and maintenance free material for countertops. Granite is also the countertop of choice for outdoors because it is so durable and that doesn’t change when being used for pool lining or coping.
