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.

Solid Marble Carving & Table

This week we had an interesting project carving a cylinder out of a solid block of carrara marble to be used as an end table.

We also created a table made completely out of solid carrara marble! Check out the pics below:

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.

Carrara Grigio Kitchen Counters and Island

This is an up-close look at our current work in progress installation of Carrara Grigio Quartz.
The counter tops were just installed and fit perfectly into space. We'll be installing the backsplash next which will seamlessly match the counters.

Neolith Installation

Neolith is an engineered stone with amazing characteristics. It is high temperature resistant and scratch resistant. This stone is perfect for high-traffic areas and is UV resistant.

Neolith is a high-performance material, ideal for kitchen countertops. This is truly an all-purpose fool-proof material. If you have children and tend to prepare meals at home, we suggest a high quality engineered stone such as Neolith. Does not scratch, does not stain, is heat, fire and heavy-duty cleaning agent resistant, and, thanks to the extremely low absorption rate of technical porcelain, ideal for food contact and processing. These unique physical properties make NEOLITH a versatile product with high technical and aesthetic performance.

We recently worked with Vesta Kitchen & Bath to install the Neolith kitchen counters below:
