When your granite countertop gets cut, there are pieces left over that come in all shapes and sizes. You are even able to buy these remnants from Lexmar USA. It may surprise you, but the right cut and right stone for your countertop may end up benefiting you in other ways! Your own granite remnants can be made into many things that match your home décor.
Lexmar USA offers these ideas to ensure your granite countertop remnants do not go to waste:
The unique, earthy tones of granite make for one-of-a-kind coasters. A small amount of remnants are all you need to add coasters to your home. No one shape is best – coasters look neat in stacks of all shapes whether it’s squares, triangles, circles, or just even irregular shapes!
Now, if you have remnants that are too small to be made into coasters, don’t throw them away – these pieces are great for whiskey stones. You’ll want to clean and cut to shape the remnants before storing them in your freezer to have a nice addition to your drink that does not water it down.
End tables are a popular choice for larger leftovers. This project allows you to tie together to separate designs while having a place to rest your morning coffee. Larger granite remnants are great for even just a tabletop as it is durable and low maintenance.
For larger or small leftovers, shelving is always another option. Granite shelving is a great opportunity to add a unique element to your home that is super versatile. It can be used for storage or simply decoration.
Another option for a variety of sizes is a lamp base. The textured lamp base will certainly capture people’s attention. You will want to use the large, flat piece for the base and smaller, irregularly shaped pieces as you near the top.
The list doesn’t end there.
