Miramar, FL – March 20, 2012 – Originating in the early 20th century, subway tile gained popularity among the masses because of its classic, white, glossy rows found lining New York City subway stations. Today, Granite Transformations, a remodeling services franchise, reinvents the classic trend by announcing the addition of a distinctive Subway tile collection. This versatile collection includes an assortment of colored and textured tiles to coordinate or contrast beautifully within any home, specifically its kitchen and bathrooms.
Just like any other design trend, this style is resurfacing with a twist. Granite Transformation’s Subway collection not only offers seven color options, but unique pattern choices, giving any room in a home or commercial space a whole new look and feel. Subway tiles are manufactured from post-consumer recycled glass and can assist designers or homeowners in bringing a classic touch to any room in the home.
“Subway tile is a standard in American design and over the years has been seen in locations across North America, both residential and commercial,” explains Carl Griffenkranz, vice president of marketing for Granite Transformations. “By offering a variety of color and textural choices, our subway tile collection not only provides a modern twist on this traditional design element but is also perfect for any kitchen or bathroom. From a kitchen backsplash or bathroom redesign, to other areas in the home such as a fireplace surrounds or accent walls, the options are endless.”
Granite Transformations new Subway collection features dramatic 3” x 6” individual glass rectangles and customers can select the color, texture and degree of reflectivity of each tile. The collection’s introductory selection draws upon hues from the world of international fashion including the following seven colors: Bronzite, Diamond, Amber, Onyx, Honey, Pearl and Noir. Another feature that can be added to create extra dimension for customers is a selection of mirror finishes, available in 4 colors (Diamond, Amber, Onyx and Bronzite).
In addition to its new Subway collection, Granite Transformations offers unique product lines of Trend Stone, Trend Glass and Trend Mosaics, which are manufactured from the finest natural materials in the world. Granite Transformations countertop products are unique and feature a one-fourth inch slab of engineered stone or post-consumer recycled glass, manufactured to be both beautiful and highly durable, as well as scratch and stain resistance. The thinner material can be installed directly on top of existing surfaces without any demolition, eliminating weeks of disturbance and inconvenience.
