to finding the right trend for granite and marble slabs for your Toronto
Granite and Marble
Whether your clients have just moved in or have lived in
their home for years, they may be dealing with a tired, out-of-date bathroom; it’s
one of the most common home renovations.
Your clients may be interested in creating a home spa. If
so, point them toward a stand-alone tub. Surrounded by granite
flooring, the tub helps
create the feeling of staying at a luxury spa. The tub can also be raised on a
pedestal, with marble or granite steps leading up to it.
A shower with granite floors and walls is another good
choice. Let your client know that granite can also be used to create extra
shelves for shower necessities or a seat for extra comfort.
Your clients may also be interested in having a fireplace in
the bathroom. This hot trend brings romance and relaxation to the forefront.
Marble is an excellent choice for a fireplace since it seems to shimmer in
firelight. Granite is also a beautiful choice for the fireplace and mantle.
Both natural stone slabs exude exclusivity and elegance, which is part of the
reason why they’re so popular. They will help your clients increase the value
of their home while creating a spa-like retreat that will quickly become their
favourite room in the house.
Granite and Marble
has always been more popular than marble in the kitchen. You’ve probably
recommended that die-hard marble fans restrict its use to accents if they
aren’t ready to put in the extra care to keep it looking polished and to
protect it from stains. Durable and stain-resistant, most people choose granite
for its low maintenance and hard surface.
If your clients are broken-hearted to find out that marble
countertops aren’t for most people, show them how granite can do the job. There
are many styles of granite that are finely veined or have big, bold marble-like
patterns. Your clients may be surprised to discover that they can have the look
of marble without the headaches.
Some clients are worried that their marble or granite
renovation won’t stand out among so many other similar renovations. Show them
that there are ways to be more creative and add some personality to their
kitchen using granite and marble slabs. They may not have considered the
exciting blues, reds, and greens that are available.
Remind clients that their countertops don’t exist in a
vacuum—there are other colours and styles in the room. They need to look at the
paint on the walls, appliance colours, cabinets, curtains, blinds, and even the
fixtures before selecting a countertop. Black has become trendy in the kitchen
but can be overpowering if the kitchen doesn’t get much natural light. Your
client may need to replace their lighting to brighten up a dark kitchen.
