Hot Trends for Client Renovations with Granite Slab in the GTA

Back to Home
If your clients want to turn their granite slab into the hottest renovation item in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), you can help them find the right project.
 

Granite Slab in the Kitchen

 
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 maintenance countertop, find a durable granite slab that has the look of marble 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.
 

Granite Slab in the Bathroom

 
Granite isn’t just for flooring or the walls in the shower anymore. It’s being used to create convenient accessories in the shower. Granite can easily be used to create wall shelves for shampoo and other shower 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 look.
 
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.
 
Granite slab can be used in many innovative ways to help reflect your clients’ personalities and raise the value of their GTA homes.
