Not Just for Kitchen Counters: Get Creative with Custom Stone Applications

Granite and Quartz are hugely popular applications for kitchen and bath countertops because of stone’s unique combination of durability and aesthetics. However, these characteristics also make stone incredibly versatile for a wide variety of surfaces around your home. If you’re ready to remodel or re-imagine any space in your home, it’s time to think creatively about a custom stone project!

Don’t be afraid to mix and match between Marble, Granite, and Quartz according to its use. Each has its own look, feel, and strengths, and between them you’ll find every texture and color to achieve whatever aesthetic you could want – from natural or rustic to modern or colorful.


Coordinate your entire kitchen with stone: not just the counter, but the backsplash, island, and dining tabletop as well. Even nearby walls can feature stone panels to visually connect spaces.


Vanities, bath surrounds, recessed shelving, walk-in showers, floor panels and sills are all ideal (and attractive!) uses for stone.

Home & Wet Bar

Entertain in upscale style with your own stone bar top and face.


Faces, surrounds, and mantels are all excellent, elegant uses for granite or marble.

Home Office

Turn an extra room into an executive suite with a sleek stone-topped desk or table.

Laundry or Mud Room

Make any space special, not boring or utilitarian.

Craft or Hobby Room

Stay inspired with a work surface made from a unique piece of stone – one that also makes cleanup easy, no matter your hobby.


Find a piece granite or marble that you love and transform it into an accent or coffee table.


Stone inlays can bring attention and extra detail to the center of a room, or make a beautiful transition between them.
