As the deadline for tax returns approaches, you’re probably compiling a list of things you want to buy with your tax refund money. One of the smartest decisions you can make is to reinvest this money into your home by remodeling key areas of your home. According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2013 Cost vs. Value Report, kitchen and bathroom remodels have some of the biggest pay off, retaining 65-75% of the cost on a U.S. national average when you sell your home. Granite Transformations products offer an easy and quick way to give your kitchen or bathroom a beautiful new look with a selection of materials and colors you are sure to love.

As the highest-traffic area of the home, the kitchen experiences a lot of wear and tear. Granite Transformations can help you utilize your tax refund to install a granite overlay, reface cabinets and add a backsplash to update your kitchen. This season’s biggest trends for kitchen remodels include bold patterned granite countertops which provide a durable and solid surface as well as darker wood tones which add warmth to kitchen cabinets.

Next to kitchens, bathrooms are the most remodeled room in the home. At Granite Transformations, we offer a gorgeous selection of glass mosaic tiles available in a variety of colors and custom design patterns.

8 Great Tips for Transforming Your Home for the Fall

Now that summer is drawing to a rapid, sweltering, and hurricane-filled close, we thought we’d be the first to shift our design focus towards the ethereal images of autumn. Summer calls for lighter colors, more open designs, and a lighter touch – not one aimed towards coziness, but more towards free-flowing, airy fixtures and open-windowed freshness. Though as hurricane season bears down on us coastal dwellers, turning the breezy summer air into close-those-shudders wind that will knock a shingle or two off, we have to begin to plan for a gentle ascension into fall. Here are eight great tips for transforming your home into an autumn wonderland.

The Bowling Ball VS. Our Trend Stone…Who Will Prove the Victor?

Well, if you haven’t browsed the Granite Transformations site lately you ought to go take a couple of minutes and give it a once over. Right as you arrive on our home page you’ll find a semi-discreet video box just to the right of the main center graphic. What most people don’t do is click on it, but man oh MAN should they ever. I sometimes forget exactly how cool one of our videos is, but I’ll allow you to make your own judgments. Ladies and gentleman, without further ado I re-present to you “Bowling Ball vs. Trend Stone.” Enjoy!

Seems pretty conclusive, folks. The bowling ball absolutely decimated the regular slab of granite while our composite trend stone showed the bowling ball who was boss – and the trend stone looked great doing it! Seriously though, if your counter top can withstand some hard, Charles Barkley-like dribbles of a bowling ball with nary a scratch then just imagine the resistance your new granite countertop can have against typical kitchen mishaps. Oh the possibilities.

A Kitchen Fit for Poseidon

We spend a great deal of time on our blog talking about homes, way to upgrade homes, other people’s homes that we think are notably attractive, and basically anything else you could think of that can be neatly filed under the keyword “home.” Well today is your lucky day, especially if you’re someone who prefers the nautical lifestyle to one bound by yards, sidewalks, and driveways.
