More than Countertops

Love stone or quartz? Already have it on your countertops and looking for other ideas of what to do with it. Thinking just a little outside of the box can get you a few good ideas!
It is common to use a solid surface for you vanity countertops and tub decks. Why not top your shower curb and bench with the same material? Wrap your shower walls in full solid slabs as well. Bring natural stone into your bedroom by using it as a headboard and/or a footboard. Don’t get stuck using it on just horizontal surfaces – think vertical!

Instead of wood or glass, use a solid natural stone or quartz as your desk top. Use it has your inspiration piece to decorate the rest of your office in both your business and personal office space. Using a solid slab for your dining room table would be a great conversation piece when you have company over for the holidays.
Have you seen some of the artwork Mother Nature has created?! Why not use it for just that? Artwork! Whether you pick up a 12” x 12” granite, marble, or even onyx tile, frame it and throw it up on the wall or you buy a large 5’ x 8’ and get it mounted on the wall – natural stone is beautiful artwork. Onyx is translucent, so back light it for a dramatic effect.
