Creating Continuity Through Counters

For this home in Franklin, Tennessee, the goal was to update a couple of older, more traditional looking rooms—namely, the kitchen and half bath—with newer, more modern counters and cabinetry. Using our fitted counter overlay system and our cabinet refacing services, we were able to easily transform these two rooms with a fresh, updated look.

Bright, Modern, & Airy

When you think of modern kitchen aesthetics, you probably think of light, bright spaces with mostly neutral tones and natural elements. That’s everything these homeowners’ old kitchen and bathroom didn’t have. Medium-toned kitchen cabinets matched the floor color almost perfectly, making the space a big brown blob with no discernable way to break up the line of sight apart from the stark white counters. Shorter upper cabinets also made the room look shorter and added to a more traditional style.

By lengthening the cabinets to bring them closer to the ceiling, the eye is tricked into thinking the ceiling is higher than it is. A quick color change brightens the whole space, and a soft, speckled grey countertop keeps the space light without becoming overwhelmingly white. Carrying those same counters into the half bath, then, creates a more seamless transition of styles throughout the home.

Double Up Your Counter Transformations!

When you decide it’s time to update the counters in your kitchen, it’s tempting to look at other areas of your home that can benefit from an update as well. Luckily, Granite Transformations in Nashville has counter options that are affordable for nearly any budget, so you can create a seamless look across multiple rooms in your home.

Conservative Kitchen Gets a Modern Revival

A traditional kitchen is the right look for many people. But this family in Murfreesboro, Tennessee wanted something more modern—and Granite Transformations of Nashville was able to answer the call! Typically, we’d start by brightening up the space, but in this kitchen, there were already plenty of light, bright elements in place. That base gave us a little more room to be creative and design something visually appealing and out of the ordinary.

The first task, as usual, is choosing the perfect countertop and a backsplash that will complement it. For this design, extending the same Calacatta marble-look engineered stone from the counters all the way up the walls created a sleek, expensive looking work space on a non-marble budget.

Cabinet Refacing Completes This Kitchen

We talk a lot about how new counters can change the look of a space—and they certainly do! That being said, another important aspect of revamping any kitchen is the choice of cabinetry. New cabinets are a huge undertaking, both financially and from a construction perspective. Luckily, our Nashville cabinet refacing services can make your existing cabinets look brand new almost overnight! Since these homeowners weren’t looking to revamp the layout of their kitchen—just the look—refacing the lower cabinets was a great way to add some visual interest without investing in all-new cabinets. After the refacing, bringing the cabinets all the way up to the ceiling, and switching out some hardware, we were able to add the illusion of more height and fresh wooden cabinets in this once traditional space.

If you are looking to update your kitchen on a budget, Granite Transformations of Nashville can help. With affordable materials that are easy to install, we can reduce construction costs as well as the cost of materials to get you the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of.

There’s no denying marble’s ability to bring a touch of elegance to any room—but the work that goes into maintaining marble countertops isn’t quite as glamorous. If you’ve been considering integrating marble into your next home renovation project, you’ve likely stumbled across the cons of marble countertops. Real marble countertops are beautiful, yet porous, high-maintenance, and less durable than other natural stones. Understandably, that’s enough to steer many homeowners away.

But what if you could enjoy the look of a marble kitchen without the added stress and maintenance of authentic marble countertops? Now you can—with etherium® by E-stone marble countertops from Granite Transformations of Nashville.

Beauty of Marble Countertops, Benefits of etherium® by E-Stone

All of the surfaces in our Marble Countertops Collection boast the timeless beauty of traditional marble surfaces in a variety of colors and patterns. However, rather than being made of porous and fragile marble, our marble countertops are made from quartz and recycled glass. These elements, along with our proprietary sealing agent ForeverSeal®, join to create a surface that looks like real marble—yet is nonporous, low-maintenance, and stain- and scratch-resistant. With their elegant look and resilient characteristics, our etherium® by E-Stone marble countertops are perfect for backsplashes, bathroom or kitchen countertops, walk-in showers, floors, and even fireplaces!

Effortless Maintenance, Easy Installation

Not only are our marble countertops easy to maintain, but they’re also easy to install. At Granite Transformations of  Nashville, our unique installation process requires little-to-no demolition and can be completed as quickly as in one day! We simply install your new slab on top of your existing countertops—eliminating the time, mess, and labor of ripping out and removing old surfaces.

Bright Kitchen Ideas That Go Against the Mainstream

Wanting to brighten your kitchen without going so mainstream as all white everything? Here are some ideas to mix it up:

Grey Cabinets

For the last few years, white cabinetry, countertops, and backsplash have been the hottest craze. However, things may be changing as many homeowners opt for something a little different. Grey cabinets provide the ideal balance between a sophisticated neutral and relaxing warmth, perhaps making them the perfect choice for kitchens. If you’re looking for a way to brighten up your kitchen, but are wanting to go with something more unique than white kitchen cabinets, consider our Stone Grey RTF cabinet refacing!

Navy Blue Subway Tile

Subway tile is one of the hottest trends in kitchen design. Although subway tile is typically white, why not break the mold and try something a little different? We helped this homeowner install navy blue subway tile backsplash, perfectly tying in the cool tones of their grey cabinets.

High-end concrete is one of the hottest trends for kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities. Concrete countertops are extremely versatile and can be used in a wide variety of interior design styles, including modern, industrial, and even farmhouse.

With that said, they do present some problems that may have you wondering whether real concrete countertops are all they’re cracked up to be.

The Downsides of Concrete Countertops

Despite its handcrafted beauty and versatility, concrete is not an ideal surface for bathrooms and kitchens. Concrete cracks easily, and it’s virtually impossible to have a slab poured without at least a few hairline fractures—even with perfect installation, high-quality sealant, and meticulous care. Concrete countertops are also more vulnerable than other surfaces to large fractures caused by settlement or pressure. And, unfortunately, these cracks often cannot be repaired and will most likely require replacing the entire slab.

Here are more concerns that real concrete countertops pose:

  • Concrete is naturally porous, meaning it absorbs liquids that can lead to cracks, stains, and bacteria growth. Sealant must be initially applied during the installation process and re-applied at least once a year to prevent liquid absorption.
  • Concrete is heavy, and concrete countertops can weigh around 20-25 pounds per square foot. This may require you to reinforce your cabinetry and flooring to improve their load-bearing capacity.
  • The concrete material used for countertops is considered high-end and is one of the most expensive options for kitchen and bathroom surfaces.
  • Though concrete is commonly used in less glamorous applications, crafting concrete slabs to use as countertops requires a lot of skill and experience.

Get the Look of Concrete With the Benefits of etherium® by E-stone

At Granite Transformations, we offer a line of surfaces that mimic the look of concrete countertops while offering homeowners the benefits of etherium® by E-stone.

The Benefits of etherium® by E-stone Concrete Countertops

  • Each surface is sealed with ForeverSeal®, our proprietary polymer resin, which makes your countertops stain, heat, scratch, and mold resistant.
  • With the help of our unique sealing agent, all surfaces are nonporous and will never need to be resealed.
  • Because each slab is handcrafted in our own manufacturing facility in the U.S., we can guarantee the strength and durability of your countertop surface with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.
  • etherium® by E-stone concrete countertops are made of a mixture of quartz and 78% post-consumer recycled glass, making them an eco-friendly option for your kitchen or bathroom remodel.
