Problem: I chose granite but I don’t know if this granite will stain, need sealing or have problems with etching.

Tip: Use our handy granite countertop selection and seal guide to purchase the most stain resistant granite countertop or assess the seal on your granite countertop choice.

KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS VS BATHROOM COUNTERTOPS

You might be wondering what the difference is between kitchen countertops vs bathroom countertops. The main difference between the two is for kitchen countertops you usually have to buy full countertop slabs and bathroom countertops you need to find remnant pieces. What is a remnant piece you may ask yourself? ​A remnant piece is a leftover piece from a previous job that we have leftover. This is the best way for you the customer to do your bathroom. This means a better price for you at the end. Sometimes our countertop companies have sells on certain slabs and colors and we pass that price along to you!

Problem: My bath is very small and granite suppliers won’t split a slab for me. I only want granite or marble in my bath.

Tip: Look for a slab remnant left over from a granite or marble install in the Austin area. 

If your bathroom countertop could use an update when remodeling your kitchen, talk to your contractor about using the same slab in the bath or powder room.
