Granite is a Versatile Stone

Granite might not be the first material you might think of for your washroom, but it is increasingly turning up in bathroom countertops in North York. It is part of a new fascination that home design has with stone, as well as a reputation that granite is adaptable to a host of domestic design requirements.
As a room that has a high volume of traffic, the bathroom should be as beautiful as the rest of your home. Natural stone slabs can make perfect shower walls, tub and sink backsplashes, accents for walls, and flooring. The beauty of granite is that its range of coloration – from pink to dark grey – makes it adaptable to any bathroom.
There also practical advantages; granite is strong, perfect for the use of it in slab form for shower walls. When used in tub and sink backsplashes, the need for grout is eliminated, making cleaning much easier. Granite slabs are cost competitive with tiles – and the individuality of the stone gives your bathroom a unique look shared by no other.

Granite Remnants Can Lower Your Costs

At first site, granite is an expensive stone. However, it recoups its investment with time and in increases the resale value of your home. Nevertheless, the cost of purchase and installation may seem daunting  – but there is another option available to consumers.
When dealers order granite slabs from distributers, they over estimate the amount of material needed, in order to ensure that they have enough stone to complete a job.  This results in leftover pieces large enough for smaller jobs. Rather than wastefully send the remnant stone off to landfill sites, a dealer will convert the stone for other uses such as bathroom countertops and backsplashes. It's a practical use of the extra stone and a cost effective choice for the consumer.
It is important to remember that this leftover stone is NOT defective – merely orphaned. It's up to you to give it a home.

Finding the Right Dealer

There are a lot of stone dealers out there. The best way to find the kind of stone specialist who will assist you in your renovation is, of course, word of mouth. If your friend or neighbour is happy with their dealer – and you like the end result you see in their home – chances are, you've found your best source for granite.
But there are other clues. Look for a specialist, not a dealer who sells a variety of other items including stone. You want to be able to look through a large inventory of stone because granite comes in a multitude of shades. This can inspire your design aspirations. Visit a few stone dealers and ask questions. How willing are they to impart information and offer suggestions? A family business may be more invested in the end success of their relationship with you.
Granite – or any other kind of stone – can create bathroom countertops, backsplashes, and other accents that will give you a lifetime of pleasure. Do your research, add your own creativity, and enjoy the result!
