Everyone loves the benefit of granite. Between the
durability, stain-resistance, and elegance, it isn’t hard to see why it’s such
a popular natural stone for kitchen countertops. Your clients may be worried
that their dream kitchen will look like everyone else’s renovation, but you can
reassure them that there are many ways to use granite
that will give the
kitchen a fresh look that meshes with their own sense of style.
One way to stand out from the crowd is to look at different
styles and patterns. Your client may not even realize that granite comes in
vibrant reds, glorious greens, and relaxing blues. Granite
can also mimic
marble. If your client loves the veining or bold patterns of marble
but doesn’t want a high

and your client will be grateful.
Before choosing a granite slab for a kitchen renovation
project in their GTA home, your clients should carefully consider what they
have to work with, as well as the colours already present in their décor.
Remind them to think about the walls, cabinets, appliances, blinds, and fixtures—any
colours present in the kitchen. If they already have their heart set on a slab,
send them home with a similar-coloured chunk so they can see how it looks with
their lighting conditions.
Kitchens with black countertops and other darker colours
have become extremely hot. Your client may need to choose a lighter slab to
offset a dark kitchen or select one with lighter flecks, like white or yellow.
If your client is set on a dark colour and doesn’t have much natural light in
the room, it may become overpowering and dark. An overhaul of the kitchen
lights may offset the problem.

necessities. Another hot trend is the addition of a seat to the shower so your
client has a place to relax after a tough day at work.
Your client can also create a spa-like home retreat by
adding a stand-alone or deep-soaker tub surrounded by granite tiles. If there’s
room, granite steps can be used to raise the tub higher for a more striking
Granite slab is a great choice for clients who want to add
heated floors to their bathroom or basement area. It’s durable, scratch-and-stain-resistant,
and conducts heat easily. Your clients will have toasty toes on even the
coldest winter mornings.
Encourage your clients to visit the warehouse and personally
choose their granite slab. This lets them see the full patterns and colours in
a way that pictures just can’t capture.

reflect your clients’ personalities and raise the value of their GTA homes.
