Everything you expect – and more!
There’s a reason that granite has become one of the most popular home renovation material choices, whether in palatial abodes around the world or right here in Vaughan. Granite offers everything you need from a building material: it’s incredibly durable, very easy to clean and maintain, it comes in a variety of colours and styles and, of course, it’s absolutely beautiful. What you might not know is how versatile granite can be.
Of course it makes a perfect covering for a countertop in the kitchen or bathroom – who doesn’t want the easy clean-up of just needing a clean, damp cloth and a quick wipe to do away with messes? Everyone knows that a granite countertop adds a touch of traditional class that’s rapidly becoming a modern obsession.
But what about the floor, or your walls?
It may not be the first thing that leaps to mind when trying to decide on flooring or wall coverings, but more and more people are realizing that all the same properties that make granite perfect for counters make it ideal for the walls or floors of just about any room in your house.
Available in an almost infinite variety of colours, shades and patterns, slabs of granite can turn a kitchen, living room, dining room or bathroom wall into a thing of beauty, or can transform a floor from just something to keep you from falling into the basement into a conversation piece and work of art in its own right.
Where do I find a granite dealer?
With so many possibilities, options and choices, making sure you get exactly what you want for your next big renovation project is vital. What you want to avoid are fly-by-night importers and vendors who are just hopping on the bandwagon. Instead, you need to look for a company that has spent time getting to know the business and the material. You need someone with experience, connections and know-how to make sure that you’re still just as in love with your new kitchen or bathroom 20 years from now as you are the moment you see the finished product.
How do I decide on a style and colour?
Shopping for granite is not like buying lumber. You can’t just send someone out for it or order over the phone, sight-unseen. With hundreds, maybe thousands, of options in terms of style and colour, you want to see it for yourself and make an informed choice before making any purchases at all. That’s why you need to find a Vaughan granite dealer that has their own showroom. Shopping at a place like Interstone, where you can browse a sizeable showroom and really get a good look at what you’re going to be getting, is a far better option than simply looking through a catalogue, especially when the decision you make will be with you for decades.
