When shopping for new countertops, the idea of "at home shopping" can seem appealing...I mean there's no effort required! In the case of custom natural stone countertops this is just about one of the most critical mistakes you can make.

Why?

Not Knowing What You'll Get

Natural stone in inherently "natural" and therefore inconsistent. Choosing from a small sample can be very deceiving. How do you actually know what your stone will look like if you never see it? Simple answer, you don't. When selecting natural stone, be sure you're seeing and inspecting the full slab. Natural variation, veins, flaws, and fissures should all be taken into consideration.

When a customer asks about staining we are always happy to say we can offer a 20 year warranted sealer for their counters. 


This means for 20 years, the homeowner does not have to worry about reapplying sealer to be sure they are protecting their counters. 
 
This eliminates the old school way of thinking "granite is high maintenance" statement! Worry no more!
We also offer this product for counters that are already installed! 
 
Be sure to ask your fabricator what they offer! 
 
See the difference in the photo's below! 





If your counters are getting dark as shown in the photo, it's a sure sign of sealer needing to be applied before a stain occurs!

90% of customer are going with the largest single bowl they can fit in their sink base cabinet. WHY?
 
More room for soaking has become the choice as dishwashers have replaced much of the hand washing.
Single bowl sinks are my preference. Have you ever washed a cookie sheet, or a roasting pan and found yourself soaking wet with a double bowl sink? There is not enough room to sit the pan into the sink to wash it, so we are subject to splash back, not fun! Try taking a look at the large single bowls, it's a dream! No more wrestling pot's, pan's, cookie sheets any more!
 
Still the ability to separate clean and dirty dishes with a double bowl sink or to use less water when soaking proves to be the right choice for other people.
 
Still can't decide? Try a low divider the pictured Silgranit sink. Its a perfect compromise!
 
Which ever you choose don't worry about the plumbing. Its being re-worked either way so its not an issue to change a double to a single or a single to a double. b2ap3_thumbnail_image-1.pngb2ap3_thumbnail_image-2.png
