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 Montgomery, you can.
Beauty of Marble, Benefits of etherium® by E-Stone
At Granite Transformations of Montgomery, all of the surfaces in our Marble Countertops Collection boast the timeless beauty of traditional marble surfaces, yet are made from quartz and recycled glass.

Find the Perfect Pair: Cabinet & Granite Countertops Combination Ideas
When it comes to pairing kitchen cabinets with granite countertops to create a unique, cohesive look, your options are endless. For some, the idea of having endless options is exciting—for others, overwhelming. At Granite Transformations of Montgomery, we strive to make your kitchen renovation process as personalized—and simple—as possible. Before you choose your cabinetry and surfaces, we provide a complimentary design consultation to help you explore your options.
Here are just a few ideas for finding the perfect kitchen cabinet and granite countertops pairing:
Mix and Match
Your kitchen is already a point of interest thanks to the chef of your home’s fabulous cooking. With dramatic and subtle color combinations you can make it a point of interest when it comes to design as well. Pair white cabinetry with black granite countertops or warm cabinetry with cool-toned countertops for eye-catching contrast.
Make it Monochromatic
Pick a few shades of your favorite color to paint your cabinetry, backsplash, and countertops for a sleek, sophisticated look. When you’re choosing your color scheme, remember the importance of contrast. Adding a black or white base to your palette will be sure to keep things interesting. Another tip for monochromatic kitchens is selecting a countertop option that has veins or specks of an accent color. This accent color can be incorporated in hardware, backsplash, and decor to add a touch of style.
Mind the Finishes and Materials
When it comes to harmonizing your kitchen cabinetry and countertops, keep in mind that finishes and materials can clash as much as certain colors and patterns. Wood cabinetry can have an even texture, or it can be covered with swirling knots. Some cabinetry is finished with a shiny lacquer, while others appear matte. Then these cabinets are paired with countertops that have their own range of finishes and materials.

Crafted of quartz, granite, and mother of pearl, Granite Transformation’s Perla di Modena granite countertops will add a level of sophistication to any room. Mother of pearl is an iridescent nacre coating found in oysters and other mollusks. Made of a blend of minerals, the coating protects them from parasites and foreign objects. In countertops and jewelry, mother of pearl offers a subtle iridescent shine.
Styling mother of pearl countertops
Mother of pearl is typically incorporated in granite and marble, giving whatever countertop they’re added to the famous iridescent shine that produces their elegant glimmer. The versatility of Perla di Modena granite countertops gives you the option to style them with a variety of textures and color pallets.
In addition to installing new countertops, we also provided a new undermount sink that added another layer of sleek design to this kitchen. Without an exposed rim, this homeowner will not only enjoy the seamless look of their new sink, but they will also enjoy easier cleaning and maintenance!

Introducing etherium® by E-Stone
Can’t decide between the look of rare, natural stone and the environmental-friendliness of recycled glass? For those wanting to ensure their kitchen or bathroom remodel is as eco-friendly as possible but love the look of stone cut from quarry, etherium® by E-Stone is the perfect option. etherium™ by E-Stone resembles some of the world’s rarest quarried slabs—yet is made up of small pieces of 78% post-consumer recycled material. The recycled glass in combination with common stone and quartz allows us to provide highly-durable, scratch, stain, and impact resistant countertops that come in a beautiful array of colors and styles.
Recycled Glass Countertops Q&A
Are recycled glass countertops durable?
Our recycled glass countertops are highly durable. Made for everyday use, recycled glass countertops are scratch, stain, and impact resistant. However, you’ll still want to take good care of your countertops to keep them in peak condition. Avoid using sharp objects directly on the surface and don’t leave highly acidic juices or harsh chemicals on them for too long.
How much do recycled glass countertops cost?
The price of purchasing and installing recycled glass countertops will depend on the amount of material needed as well as the specific product you choose. Our recycled glass countertops are made with a mixture of recycled glass and natural stone, quartz, porcelain, granite, or a combination.
Where can I buy recycled glass countertops?
Granite Transformations of Santa Rosa offers a collection of recycled glass countertops, with options ranging from beautiful blue crushed glass to sparkling white quartz. While shopping for recycled glass kitchen countertops, keep in mind that not all glass countertops are created the same, and not all suppliers offer durable products. At Granite Transformations, you can trust the quality of our products which are all backed by a lifetime limited warranty.
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.
etherium® by E-stone Concrete Countertops Benefits

Our unique sealing agent ensures your concrete countertop surface is nonporous and will never need to be sealed, saving you both time and money.

Transforming your seldom-used or outdated tub into a spacious, luxurious walk-in shower can give your bathroom a fast and practical upgrade. Granite Transformations of Montgomery specializes in bathroom renovations, including shower remodeling and tub to shower conversions.
Why a Tub to Shower Conversion?
Choosing to convert your tub into a shower can be rewarding, especially if you already have a functioning bathtub elsewhere in the home. Here are three ways a tub to shower conversion can add value to your home:
A tub to shower conversion can free up valuable space in small guest baths. Large tubs can mean less room for storage, getting dressed, and counter space.
For those who use mobility aids, showers make bathing more convenient. A zero-threshold shower can make entering and exiting easier for those who use wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids by removing large walls and curbs that need to be stepped over.
Large tubs and busy shower curtains can take up space and make a room feel crowded. Showers, especially walk-ins with clear glass doors, make a bathroom of any size feel open and spacious.
Need Bathtub Remodeling?
Bathtubs can hold their weight in value, especially when it comes to the homes of families with young children and dogs. For this reason, real estate agents often advise homeowners against a tub to shower conversion when there is only one bathtub in the house. But what if your sole bathtub is large and outdated? Granite Transformations can help! A new tub surround can dramatically improve your bathroom. Call today for more information about how we can transform your tub!
Design Options for Tub to Shower Conversions
At Granite Transformations, we offer a wide range of countertops, cabinets, tiles, and slabs for your bathroom remodeling and tub to shower conversion projects. You won’t have to settle for boring fiberglass or acrylic shower stalls ever again.
As you can see from the before photo, these Selma homeowners had an underwhelming kitchen island composed of 4 pieces of plywood with a cooktop in the middle. Kitchen islands are functional, but being that they’re set apart from the rest of your counters, they’re also made to stand out. Granite Transformations of Montgomery helped these homeowners update their kitchen island with new countertops and cabinet refacing to add some character to their cooking and dining space.
Tips for Updating Your Kitchen Island
Here are our top tips for those wanting to update their plain or builder-grade kitchen island:
Install New Countertops
With as much surface area as they take up, countertops can drastically change the look and feel of your kitchen. Installing new countertops on your kitchen island can help you nail your design style. These homeowners chose to install marble countertops throughout the kitchen, giving it a sleek and modern edge. However, some homeowners will choose to install a different type of slab for their island to make it a true centerpiece.
Choose a Bold, Complementary, or Unexpected Cabinet Color
Another great way to update your kitchen island is to use a cabinet color that stands out from the rest of your cabinetry. Granite Transformations refaced the cabinetry surrounding the island in this kitchen with Turmalin Matte doors and drawers. The light green color pops against the white countertops and cabinets in the kitchen in a way that’s subtle and classy.
Add Interesting Features and Design
The best kitchen islands are crafted with both beauty and function in mind. To give a kitchen island dimension, incorporate interesting features and design elements. Granite Transformations added a veneer wrap on the sides, two new false doors on the back, and posts on the corners to give this kitchen island visual appeal.

The Cabinet Refacing Process
You wouldn’t throw away a brand new smartphone just because it was given to you with a protective case that wasn’t your style. The same goes for your kitchen, bathroom, or commercial cabinetry—if you like the layout and structure of your cabinetry, but don’t like its finish, there’s no reason to go forward with costly demolition. Our cabinet refacing process gives you the opportunity to change the look of your cabinets without the time-consuming and expensive task of changing the framework.
Cabinet refacing utilizes the strongest part of your existing cabinets with the installation of new cabinet doors and drawer fronts. This simple process replaces the outdated feel of your current residential or commercial space without having to rip out the structurally sound framework of your cabinetry. Not to mention, cabinet refacing is completed in just four simple steps:
Remove cabinet doors and drawers.
Refinish fronts and sides of cabinet boxes to match new cabinet faces.
Install updated or existing hardware to new cabinetry.
Install new doors and drawers.
Not only does this simple installation process make cabinet refacing quicker than cabinet replacement, but it also saves you money and saves waste from going to the landfill.
How Much Does Cabinet Refacing Cost?
How much you should expect to spend on your cabinet refacing project will vary depending on the size of your kitchen as well as the materials and finishes you choose. Smaller kitchen and bathroom projects with laminate cabinet doors will be the least expensive option, with real wood veneers for the largest projects being the most expensive. You will also want to keep in mind the cost of additional features, like hinges and knobs.
Regardless of the materials used and expanse of the project, you should expect to save on average 50% of the cost of completely replacing your cabinets. And if you consider the cost of time put into cabinet replacement versus cabinet refacing, your savings will be even more significant. Whether you want to update your bathroom or remodel your kitchen, cabinet refacing is the perfect option for those looking to dramatically improve the look of their cabinetry!
If you’re looking for ways to go green with your home renovation project, cabinet refacing is an easy way to cut back on waste and environmental damage. We’ve already discussed how cabinet refacing compares to cabinet replacement—it’s more cost-effective, straight-forward, and efficient. Now you can add eco-friendly to that list. If you’re simply looking to upgrade the aesthetic appeal of your bath or kitchen cabinets, there’s no reason to toss your functional cabinet boxes. Cabinet refacing offers an economical and environmentally-friendly alternative to cabinet replacement, costing a fraction of the price and sending a fraction of the material to the landfill. Reusing cabinet boxes that are in good condition not only prevents sending material to the landfill—it prevents formaldehyde, a hazardous chemical found in many cabinet boxes, from being released into the environment. Your old cabinet doors can also be repurposed by another homeowner looking to remodel.
