Fine granite and other stone countertops started becoming a popular home fixture in the 1990’s, however not everyone could afford a granite countertop for their kitchen ( read more about kitchen remodeling costs ), nor would every family consider this option for their remodeling project. Things shifted during the last two decades, granite countertops are still expensive, but now there are ways to get affordable and beautiful stone slabs for your home, without paying the “brand new” price.
Granite is a beautiful, natural stone, and one of the best materials for a premium countertop. So how can you get the best thing there is, but for a lower price?
The answer is: purchase remnant slabs from a Dallas area stone yard from previously used granite slabs. By finding a previously cut & manufactured granite slab, you can finish your kitchen project, save money, and keep all the benefits of the premium material.
Benefits of Choosing a Countertop Solution Made With Granite Remnants
Obvious benefits are the quality and the aesthetics of the material, decent resistance (especially when compared to other alternatives such as quartz) to heat and relatively simple cleaning and maintaining process. Major benefit is the over 30 percent lower price of remnants when compared to slabs. You can also be more creative with the design, and complete multiple different projects for the price of one. Do you buy a whole car when all you need is new brakes? With the option of granite remnants, you do not have to spend big bucks on the whole slab, if the size of the remnants covers the needs of your project. Now all you have to do is pick your remnant piece, buy a granite sealer, stone polishing protector, to keep your new awesome countertop fresh, shiny and well maintained.
Are Granite Remnants the Right Choice for You?
If your priorities differ from those of typical customer that is after premium granite countertops, and you are looking for a smaller, cheaper countertop, made of solid material, remnants are the right choice for you.
Granite remnants are ideal for smaller projects like:
You do not have to choose 2 centimeters thick granite instead of the 3 centimeters thick granite, as the only way to save on this type of purchase anymore. Choosing a remnant solution should not be viewed as setting for less, but as a practical, rational choice that can save money. As hyper materialistic trends of the nineties are behind us, new generation of Americans has a somewhat different set of values that focuses on experience rather than objects, so we can choose to spend less, but keep that luxurious feel.
Downside of Remnants
Maybe the only thing that could slow you done is the number of remnants available, and sizes of remnants currently in stock. Each company cuts a certain amount of kitchen jobs, and what’s left are the remnants. So, you have to go out and shop around in order to find the required size and design that you need to complete your project. You have to keep in mind that you have to find the right size, the right design, and the right type of material that will meet the requirements of your project.
