Creative Surfaces Stone Center Home Ideas Segment 2010
In the Home Ideas 2010 show we’re visiting with Sarah Hueners of the Stone Center showroom.  Today we’ll chat about countertops and tile that any homeowner would need for their home if they’re looking to build a new home or remodel their current home.  The Stone Center is our retail location where homeowners can visit for their countertop and tile needs.  We are a one-stop-shop offering all the countertop products including quartz, granite, solid surface and cultured marble.  We also offer a large variety of tile for flooring needs as well as backsplashes.  

Let’s go to our first project.  Here you’ll see a gorgeous honed black granite on the large kitchen island.  A natural honed black granite is typically grayish… not dark black. When it gets wet, or a color-enhancing sealer is applied, then it is black just like when polished, except not a shiny finish.  Most granite countertops are smooth and shiny; honed has a matte sheen to it.  A softer honed finish is particularly popular among homeowners wanting an aged or casual look – it’s creates a modern and contemporary feeling to your kitchen.  .

In the master bath we did Crema Marvil Marble for the countertops with a honey onyx backsplash.  Crema Marvil is a classic cream marble with tan undertones. The product is ideally suited for indoor bathroom and kitchen applications, such as backsplashes, flooring, and countertops.  The girls’ bathroom vanity is Cambria Snowden White; and elegantly simple design gleaming and crisp with tiny flecks of gray and tan.  The lower level wet bar showcases  Zodiaq Chestnut quartz.  

Our second project in this Home Ideas 2010 show takes us to a kitchen remodel.  The customer wanted to remove her laminate countertops and replace them with Cambria Nottingham.  Several months after replacing the countertops she decided to update her fireplace surround and chose to replace the wood with Nottingham as well to tie both the kitchen and fireplace together.  It’s a beautiful statement when you visit her home.
