Q: What’s the best way to clean my Granite and TREND Transformations’ countertops without damaging them?
A: The beauty of our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces is that they require little maintenance, and don’t require any specialty cleaning products (as slab granite does). Our etherium® By E-Stone surfaces are nonporous, which means they will not absorb colors or odors. Use a mild, all-purpose cleaner as outlined in our care and maintenance guide.
Q: How will I know if the products will look good in my home?
A: We offer the convenience of free in-home design consultations, where one of our design experts will come to your home with swatches of all materials. The design expert will help you select the color combinations and styles that are going to look best in your kitchen or bathroom. You can also check out our visualizer tool to see what your new kitchen or bathroom could look like.
