Installing Granite, Quartz and Marble at a Fraction of the Cost August 25, 2017

Granite, quartz and marble have grown increasingly popular since the 1990’s when every penthouse in Manhattan had granite kitchen islands and every garden apartment bathroom in Chicago’s North Side had a granite vanity with an accompanying steam shower. Shortly after, these natural stone surfaces made their way into new suburban residential plans while older homes were being upgraded. And just like that, a natural stone surface became the new black! While prices of fine stone surfaces have maintained, they’ve become the standard in almost every home on your block.
So, what’s the secret to upgrading to one of these luxurious stone surfaces at a decent price? This month, Lexmar USA lets you in on some tricks of the trade.
Remnants
Much like searching for carpet remnants to cut down on the cost of carpeting a smaller bedroom or den, many granite showrooms carry pieces of larger slabs that were purchased for customized projects, but left unused when pieces were cut off to fit the project template. Depending on your countertop space and room size, you may even be able to upgrade the entire room. Remnants of natural stone make your kitchen remodel or bathroom renovation an affordable project because we slash the price of the leftovers!
Versatility
Want in on another secret? Remnants aren’t just for kitchens and bathrooms! The possibilities are endless with natural stone remnants.
