Granite and TREND Transformations is thrilled to announce our new partnership with The Deru Crew, the wildly popular YouTube family who shares life’s successes and challenges through their fun and engaging Deru Crew Vlogs.

Landon and Julie DeruSeeing is believing

Granite and TREND Transformations recently had the pleasure of working with social media influencers, Landon and Julie Deru, the charming young couple who live in the Salt Lake City area with their four children. After having heard rave reviews from family members who used Granite and TREND Transformations for their own kitchen renovations, and then seeing the results with their own eyes, Landon and Julie were sold on using Granite Transformations of Salt Lake City for their own kitchen remodeling project. The result was nothing short of fabulous.

The fun is in the process

See for yourself how Landon and Julie took their kitchen from “drab-to-fab” by adding our gorgeous Statuario countertops, a white large-format Subway tile backsplash and a Blanco Silgranit sink. We invite you to watch the full Deru Crew Kitchen Makeover Reveal as Landon and Julie take you through the process. From using our kitchen Visualizer Tool—which allowed them to see how their kitchen would look BEFORE the renovation—right through to installation day, it’s a fun and informative peek into the easy, stress and mess-free process of a Granite and TREND Transformations kitchen remodel in Salt Lake City. Click here to watch the full video of this exciting transformation on our YouTube channel.

The beauty of mosaic art has intrigued the world for centuries. In fact, this timeless art form dates back to the third millennium, when a particular temple in Mesopotamia was discovered. That’s over 5,000 years ago! Today, mosaics are more popular than ever, and they are solidifying their beauty in places our ancestors never dreamed of. This extraordinary sustainability of beauty and design leads us to ask the question: “What is it about mosaics that allows them to stand the test of time?”

This month, Granite and TREND Transformations invites you to explore these artistic passions at TREND Group as we showcase some of our breathtaking projects. As one of the world’s leading producers of colored glass mosaic, Venetian enamel, gold leaf tesserae and engineered stone surfaces, your home could be a part of history with the timeless and exquisite designs of our mosaic tile collection. But first: How much do you know about mosaic?

Mosaic flower designWhat is mosaic?

Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stone, and other materials. In ancient times, mosaics were made of stones, shells and ivory. Today at TREND Group, we blend the essential principles of Italian tradition with innovative technology while retaining maximum respect for the Earth’s resources.

TREND: Turning technology into art while respecting tradition

In the year 2000, Dr. Pino Bisazza and Andrea DiGiuseppe combined their lifetimes of passion and experience in the manufacturing of mosaic, glass tile and terrazzo. Along with a team of passionate colleagues, Bisazza and DiGiuseppe formed the TREND Group, headquartered in Vicenza, Italy. The TREND Group is firmly rooted in the artistic integrity of its Venetian glass foundry—the Orsoni Venezia 1888 furnace. Centuries-old materials take their place alongside the most advanced production at the TREND Group’s manufacturing facility in Sebring, Florida, which provides engineered agglomerates to its discriminating network of dealers and growing international franchise system of Granite and TREND Transformations showrooms.

A Family of Companies

Founded in 1996, Granite Transformations and TREND Transformations is a family of companies with locations that span across eight countries on four continents. Through the vision and passion of Dr. Pino Bisazza and Andrea DiGiuseppe, our parent company TREND Group—was brought to life.

Bringing old-world style into your home

Home décor. Everyone has their own tastes and preferences that suit their own unique style. But when was the last time you took a good look around your home? There’s sure to be a story behind yours. Whether it’s more traditional or trendy chic, your story tells it all.

This month, Granite and TREND Transformations showcases some of their most beautiful bathrooms that were designed for today’s busy lifestyles. We’ve even created a storyboard to show you how easy and stress-free designing a bathroom from Granite and TREND Transformations can be.

What’s your design story?

As with any great story, there’s a beginning, middle and end. We’ve made it easy for you to begin. And the best part? We have the beginning and ending covered, so we can leave the fun part—the middle—up to you!  It all begins with scheduling our free virtual or in-home design consultation. Or, you can use our cool Visualizer Tool for a sneak peek into seeing how your bathroom will look BEFORE the renovation. As for the “happily ever after,” our professional installation services provide the perfect end to your design story, where you can see your dream bathroom come to life. So, what’s your design story? Let’s get started to find out.

Since the story is in the details, here are a few questions you should ask yourself when designing your bathroom:

  • Do I want to renovate my master bathroom, family or guest bathroom, or both?
  • Do I need double sinks in the bathroom for convenience and busier lifestyles, or will a single sink be sufficient?
  • Do I need a bathtub and shower to accommodate my family’s needs?
  • Am I going for a trendy look or more traditional style?
  • What colors best reflect the mood in my home?

Pulling the look together

Bathroom Design

Today’s look of choice is clean and sleek. This beautiful bathroom tells that story. It’s designed for busy families and has separate vanities, a bathtub and a separate shower to accommodate every family member’s needs and wants—all in a style and color combination that is contemporary yet refined. We’ve pulled the look together in a fun storyboard so you can see how easy it is to transform your bathroom into a space of beauty, function and serenity.

So, let’s get started. Begin with selecting your cabinet style and color. Did you know refacing your cabinets can save you considerably when planning your renovation? Next, your story becomes more interesting with your vanity top selection. Do you want a classic look or something more over the top? (Pun intended!) Whichever you choose, you can rest assured your countertop will stand up to busy lifestyles and look fabulous for years to come. Now, for the ultimate accessory—your backsplash. Here is where you can unleash your creativity to add just the right touch of character and pizazz to your bathroom. Our beautiful mosaic tiles can be used not only as a backsplash on your bathroom vanity but in your shower, walls or anywhere you want to add a chic touch of luxury and texture.

Dynamic duo

Double sinks are always in style, especially in today’s busy households. Here, we feature two beautiful looks that cater to the classic elegance of traditional style and the glamour of today’s trendsetter. Our classic etherium® By E-Stone surfaces provide the perfect balance for a traditional look while our gorgeous mosaic tiles create the ultimate “wow” factor in today’s trendy homes.

Single and loving it

Single sinks can be a real showstopper. Guest bathrooms make the perfect space to show off your design flair. It’s the one room in the house that stands apart from the rest of your décor. So, why not throw a cliffhanger in your story and switch up your guest bathroom décor? Our beautiful marble surface creates a magnificent old-world backdrop in the first guest bathroom, while our dazzling mosaic tile creates an elegant and sophisticated look in the second featured photo.
