Little Rock Kitchen Gets BIG Makeover
This kitchen transformation in Cabot, AR took what was once a dark, cramped room—due in large part to black countertops that extended up the wall, all the way to the bottom of the upper cabinets—and transformed it into an open, airy, modern kitchen.
The old, black counter paired with a medium-toned cabinet color and little access to natural light closed off the kitchen. It needed plenty of lighter cosmetic touches to brighten and open up the space.
New Countertops and New Backsplash Create Gorgeous Cooking Space
Tearing out the old, black material and replacing the Cabot countertops with a brighter piece instantly added more light and updated the space, giving the kitchen a more modern look overall. The speckled titan grey even makes the same cabinets from the old kitchen look entirely renewed!
By adding a complementary backsplash that picks up on the multitude of grey tones in the new countertops, our installers helped create added visual interest to break up the space. Plus, the easy-to-clean tile materials are perfect for Arkansas kitchens, bathrooms, and mudrooms.

If you’ve been eyeing marble surfaces for your next home renovation project, you’ve likely already stumbled across the cons of using marble for kitchen and bathroom countertops. Authentic marble countertops are porous, high-maintenance, and less durable compared to other natural stone countertops. Understandably, that’s enough to steer most homeowners away.
But what if you could enjoy the look of a marble kitchen without the added worry and maintenance? With etherium® by E-Stone marble countertops from Granite Transformations of Little Rock, you can.
Beauty of Marble, Benefits of etherium® by E-Stone

From decreased focus and productivity to increased stress, excessive clutter can negatively impact multiple areas of your life. Modern, neutral kitchen design can help eliminate the negative impacts on your health in one of the most frequented areas of your house—your kitchen.
How Modern, Neutral Kitchen Design Can Help Declutter Your Home
After a long, hard day at work, the last thing you want to come home to is a messy, disorganized kitchen. If you’re looking for a way to reduce the clutter and feelings of overwhelm while making dinner for the family, we suggest you try including elements of modern, neutral kitchen design.
Modern design is inspired by the modern art movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Doing away with the ornate, overly-embellished designs of the Victorian and other previous design movements, modern design values minimalism and functionality. Thus, incorporating modern design in your kitchen can help you focus on decluttering and only displaying what is clean and functional.
Here are two of the modern neutral kitchen design elements Granite Transformations installed:
Portland White Countertops
Granite Transformations’ Portland White countertops are perfect for modern neutral kitchen designs. Composed of recycled glass and quartz, Portland White engineered stone gives homeowners the look of beautiful, light-grey concrete.
White Beveled Backsplash
A simple white mosaic tile is the perfect backsplash modern kitchens. White tile backsplash will help your kitchen feel spacious and clean.
At Granite Transformations, we specialize in tub to shower conversions for homeowners wanting to make better use of the space in their bathrooms. Whether your tub is simply seldom used or you’re ready for an upgrade from the 1950s “Mamie Pink” jacuzzi, we can help transform your bathtub into a spacious walk-in shower!
From Vintage Glam to Clean and Contemporary
“Mamie Pink,” named after the pink-adoring first lady Mamie Eisenhower, was the most iconic decorating color of the 1950s. And, though the pink tub and countertops were surely glorious in their time, these homeowners were ready for something a little more contemporary.
Granite Transformations helped these Little Rock homeowners take their bathroom from vintage glam to clean and contemporary with a tub to shower conversion. We installed a new shower with marble slabs and mosaic inlay. Not only did this open up the space needed for a large walk-in shower, but it also better reflects the homeowner’s personal style.

From Craftsman to Contemporary Kitchen Update
The travertine backsplash, earth-tone granite, oil-rubbed bronze fixtures, and beautiful wooden cabinetry made this North Little Rock kitchen reminiscent of the craftsman style popular in the 2000s. However, these homeowners were ready for a contemporary kitchen update. Granite Transformations of Little Rock helped give this kitchen a total makeover with countertop and backsplash installation to pair with their new light fixtures and cabinetry.
It’s no secret that marble countertops are one of the hottest trends in today’s interior design. These homeowners chose to incorporate the contemporary surface in their kitchen by installing new Statuario countertops.
A mosaic backsplash goes along perfectly with marble countertops. The beautiful, cool-toned mosaic tile installed in this kitchen both complements the contemporary design style and reflects light to brighten up the room.

Though modern is often associated with cold, sleek, black and white design, it’s a more versatile style than you’d think. Modern design, at its core, is about creating spaces that are clean and functional. Modern design is based on a movement birthed in the 20th century—a movement that celebrated natural materials, earth tones, functionality, and minimalism. So, how did we help these Little Rock homeowners transform their space with a modern kitchen remodel?
Cabinet refacing is a more affordable and less time-consuming alternative to cabinet replacement. Because these homeowners weren’t looking to change the layout of their kitchen, we simply refaced the cabinets with simple, clean doors and drawers.
White Brick Backsplash
Before, bright red paint between the counters and cabinets broke up the space and made it appear dated. We replaced the old backsplash with exposed white brick to achieve a more modern aesthetic.
White Copper Recycled Glass Countertops
We replaced their tile countertops with something modern, eco-friendly, and easier to maintain. Our white copper countertops are made with clear recycled glass, white quartz, and Aventurine—a form of quartz characterized by its translucency and glistening effect.

Concrete surfaces are one of the hottest new trends in interior design. Their rise in popularity can be attributed to their handcrafted beauty and versatility—they’ve come a long way from their industrial roots and can now be found in a wide variety of design styles. Whether your home’s style is modern or farmhouse, concrete countertops seem to be a rock-solid choice.
However, they do present some concerns that make us wonder if authentic concrete countertops are all they’re cracked up to be.
Authentic Concrete Surfaces: Why They’re Not All They’re Cracked Up to Be
Though we love the look of authentic concrete surfaces, they’re not the most ideal countertop material for bathrooms and kitchens. If concrete does one thing, it’s crack. Even when installed, sealed, and maintained perfectly, it’s impossible to have a concrete countertop without at least hairline cracks. They’re also susceptible to larger fractures due to pressure or natural home settlement—these cracks are almost impossible to repair and often require replacing the entire portion of the slab.
Here are a few other concerns that come with concrete surfaces:
Concrete is porous in nature, and without proper sealant, can absorb liquids that lead to bacteria growth, cracks, and stains. Thus, you’ll have to seal natural concrete surfaces at least once a year.
Concrete countertops are extremely heavy and weigh in at around 20-25 pounds per square foot. This often requires reinforcing cabinetry and flooring so they’re capable of bearing the load.
Despite its common use, concrete is actually one of the more expensive countertop options. It’s considered a high-end material when used as countertops and their fabrication requires skill.
Get the Look of Concrete Countertops With the Benefits of etherium® by E-stone
At Granite Transformations, we offer a line of surfaces that mimic the look of concrete countertops yet boast the benefits of etherium® by E-stone. You’ll enjoy the aesthetic of concrete without the cracks, stains, weight, and expense.
