Add An Elegant Look To Your Kitchen With A Latinum Granite Countertop…

In this blog, I wanted to share a few install photos of a Latinum granite kitchen we recently fabricated and installed. Latinum granite is white or light colored granite that is quarried in Brazil. A gentle movement pattern can typically be seen in this stone that gives it some character. It’s soft tones help establish an elegant look, especially when paired with contrasting, darker wood tones.

Let’s take a look…

Notice how the darker toned cabinets offset the lighter stone.

This picture give a nice visual for the gentle flowing pattern.

This picture shows a close up of the sink area, which features a flat bottom sink.

Notice the tight seam in this photo and how the pattern continuously flows from one piece to another.

If you are interested in this color, or others, make sure stop by and visit our showroom and take a stroll through our slab yard.

Sandulas Quartzite Leather Finish Offers A Unique Look For Countertops!

If you follow my blog, you’ve probably heard me talk about a number of finish options that are available for countertops. While a polished  finish is the most popular, there are a number of other options available including a leather finish. I don’t know about you, but I really like the leather finish, as it provides a unique look and has a slight texture to it.

Let’s take a look at an example of a leather finish…

While it might be a little hard to see the texture finish of the stone in this photo, the leather finish provides a smooth finish, but offers a slight texture to the touch. It is a fairly popular choice for for someone looking for something a little different for granite countertops or quartzite countertops, but unfortunately it  is not available for all colors.

Here is a close up, but it still doesn’t quite show how the leather finish appears up close and in person and of course you can’t feel it.

Here is another view also, to help get an idea of the look and feel. Keep in mind that like a honed material, a leather finish is also more susceptible to staining and scratching than one that is polished.

If you are looking for something unique for your countertops, make sure you stop by our showroom. We are happy to help with your selections and answer any of your questions.

Add A White Countertop For A Neutral Look…

Over the last year or so, the color white has been a popular choice for many consumers. That’s because white granites and marbles offer a neutral option and often contain subtle accents tones, that can be incorporated in the decorating process. Some white stones include varying shades of whites, beige, taupe, as well as shades of green, blue, pink and gray that mix well with other color tones and combinations. If you are doing some remodeling and are looking for a white countertop, we can help. There are a quite a number of white colors on the market today, each with their own unique look. Make sure you stop by our showroom and take a browse through our slab yard.

Convey The Look And Feel You Like With Color…

Have you ever wondered why you are attracted to some colors more than others? Color not only inspires emotions, but can also help to set a certain mood. That is why it is so important when it comes to decorating.  While color is often a personal choice, it can also be used to create an illusion of more space or convey a certain feeling.

Let’s take a look at this Psychology of Color Chart I found…

Many home owners want certain rooms to convey a certain feel. This can be achieved with paint, as well as with other decorating options, such as countertops and accessories.

Let’s take a look at a few examples of different colored countertops…

Notice how these gray laundry tops offer a nice clean look for this laundry room. They also help the room look spacious by creating a nice visual line that are off set with white cabinets. This creates a nice, relaxing space to work in.

Here’s another laundry room example. Notice how these Bright green countertops and shelving add some cheer to this laundry room. While laundry is not always the funnest thing to do in the world, a cheery, organized space creates a nice setting to fold some laundry.
