Granite changed to Quartz- before and after

I am so excited to share with you these pictures! Our customer purchased a home that had Santa Cecelia granite countertops throughout. Wanting to change the home to fit his needs, he purchased Latte Quartz and we fabricated it with nice straight lines to enhance the look of his kitchen. Flat Polished edges gave this quartz a contemporary feel. We were able to remove the granite without damaging his existing backsplash, which saved him money and time. It also was a great way to take advantage of the existing backsplash.

BEFORE WITH SANTA CECELIA GRANITE BELOW:



The Santa Cecelia Granite that was already in the home as seen just above was absolutely beautiful. The homeowner was able to sell the granite to some people that were remodeling their home. We were able to take out the existing granite without breaking any pieces. This is never guaranteed, but when a customer would like to re-use their tops or sale them, we do our best to not break them.

Which look do you like better? :)

Cute Cabin Kitchen

This kitchen is in an adorable cabin. The colors chosen keep with the rustic feel of the walls and floor. The chiseled edge on the tan brown give it a clean but rustic feel.

The island gives this kitchen some needed countertop space. They chose to not put anything in the island, like a sink, so that the whole space could be used for prep work, or a serving area. The island also serves as a bar area for a quick breakfast or lunch!

The whole project turned out fantastic! The dark colors of the stone give the home a warm, rich feeling. I love it!

Venetian Gold with Apron Sink

I absolutely love Venetian Gold. It is an affordable granite with fabulous warm earth tones that anyone can decorate with! My client chose to use an undermount stainless apron sink. The cabinets are not quite finished, but you can see the unique design and appeal of the stainless sink in this application. 

The appliances in this kitchen are black and stainless that tie in the black from the stone, and the stainless steel of the sink.

The distessed look of the wood grain on the cabinets also gives this kitchen some unique character and charm.

This customer was careful to lay out their kitchen in such a way that there would be no seams required. We do a beautiful seam, but if this is a concern for you, consider simple layouts that don't require seams.

Bathroom Remodel with Piedrafina and Golden Crystal

This was a very fun bathroom remodel that we got to participate with. You can see the before and after photos for this master bath. The changes in colors and design make a large difference!

The vanity top was done in Golden Crystal granite with two undermount white sink cutouts. The Golden Crystal looks excellent next to the dark cabinets! We also added a Golden Crystal windowsill to tie in the corner of the room.

The shower surround was done in Piedrafina Cappuccino Slabs full high to the ceiling. We also wrapped the walls to the outside with a Piedrafina trim. The design was fun and the bathroom turned out great!!

Venetian Gold Granite with Flat Polish Edging!

I like the clean lines in this kitchen. The customer used a flat polish edge and a granite composite undermount sink to match the stone. They picked a nice Venetian Gold granite that is a beautiful contrast to the dark cabinets in this kitchen. They chose to do a tile backsplash in the kitchen, but kept the 4" backsplash in the bath. 

Hopefully we'll get some pics after they tile! It is a nice use of colors to blend and flow throughout the house. Notice the light tile to a dark cabinet and a light granite. The dark cabinets look rich and contrasting to the floor and tops.

Golden Crystal Granite 3cm

I love Golden Crystal granite! It looks a lot like a Lapidus with fabulous grays throughout! Such a fantastic mix of browns and grays. This was done for a home remodel. The customer picked the granite to flow with her existing cabinets and tile. She chose a stainless sink for ease of care, and simple beauty.

There was just enough stone to do one vanity countertop out of the same color. The white sink matched the tub and toilet, however, I think a bisque undermount vanity sink would have been equally beautiful and would have flowed with the color of the stone.

Please enjoy the beauty and exotic nature of this Golden Crystal 3cm with waterfall edge and 4" backsplash.

Venetian Gold 3cm with Apron sink

This is a beautiful Venetian Gold 3cm granite with a waterfall edge. The colors compliment the white cabinets beautifully. We did a 4" backsplash on the walls to keep the backsplash below the outlets, and then a 6" on the island to make it full high and flow from the bottom to the top! 

This house has a cast iron apron sink which also ties in the white cabinetry and white appliances. I love the dark wood floor, light cabinets and medium color stone. Very lovely, and blends very well. This customer will enjoy this for years to come!
