Absolutely, Absolute Black Granite!

If you're after a modern, sleek & solid look, then absolute black granite may be for you! This material is great if you're looking for a natural stone and don't want to deal with the hassle of maintaining it throughout the years. Absolute black granite is rich in color and if polished will be a very deep dark black.

If you prefer a matte look, you will want to have the stone honed which will make it appear to be a very dark gray. Honed absolute black granite requires some minimal maintenance, which is why we make sure all our honed counters are sealed to prevent staining.

Below is our most recent installation of honed absolute black granite. This is a wrap-around counter with a foot tall backsplash and waterfall legs. We make sure all installs are seamless and can use mitered edges to create the appearance of thicker stone. This counter is made from 3 CM absolute black granite with mitered edges adding 1 CM to each edge.

This Month's Popular Stone: Cambria Ella

We have yet another job that calls for Cambria Ella quartz! This stone features a lattice of lines and intersections embedded in a marbled dove-gray background. 

The tricky part about this stone is that the grain pattern is very broad and noticeable, so if you're choosing it for your home make sure you work with a certified Cambria fabricator like us!

We ensure the stone is cut in the correct direction and that all grains match up accordingly to leave a seamless appearance in your kitchen.

Best Edges for Small Kitchens

Everyone has a personal preference when it comes to style, and countertop edges can transform the entire style of a kitchen. From very simplistic to ornate edges, your kitchen may be best suited for a particular style to create the appearance of a roomier area with more space. 

Very ornate edges draw the eyes attention and will be the main focal point of a small kitchen taking away from other features. These types of edges are best suited for larger kitchens as they also limit the usable surface area of counter space.

Your best bet with a small kitchen is to go simple. Eased edges are a perfect choice! The smoothed out corners do not distract from other design elements and complement all kitchen interior design styles. You can opt for either a single or double eased edge depending on personal style.

If eased edges are too plain for you, another great option is a beveled edge.
Beveled edges create a very sharp and modern look. These are great for small areas and are used for table tops, fire place mantels and window ledges as well as kitchen countertops. They also go with almost any modern interior design and provide optimal surface area.

These two choices are also easy to clean because they lack any grooves that collect dirt and residue.

Crema Azul Granite - Outdoor BBQ Area

One of the best things about granite is that it is perfect for any area, including the outdoors! Granite is one of the toughest natural materials for outdoor countertops and can withstand the elements without issue. Granite counters will keep their colors in direct UV sunlight and will prove to last a lifetime. 
Below is a recent install of an outdoor granite BBQ area. The countertop is made from 3CM Crema Azul Granite. We recommend using 3CM for most outdoor applications and especially if using the counter for food prep.

Waterfall Leg Island Counter

New install of a granite waterfall-leg island counter.

Adding a Waterfall leg to your counter creates a finished and polished look for any kitchen. Most counters can have a waterfall leg applied at one of the ends, they aren't only for island counters! Having the stone counter top extend from the top of the counter to the floor instantly creates a very modern appearance.

Before & After - Mitered Edges

Adding a 'mitered edge' is a great way to visually enhance your countertop or table. Mitered edges give the appearance of a thicker piece of stone. In the photos below, you can see that the stone is laid on top of the plywood and then mitered edges are affixed to cover the plywood. This gives the counter the appearance of being a thick & solid single piece of stone.

We polish all the mitered edges to seamlessly come together with the counter top. The edges are cut at 45 degree angles and attached at each corner.
