Making an over-the-top adjustment that ultimately doesn’t jive with the remainder of the house can cause issues, so getting a good fit is important. If you’re ready to add an island or enhance your current kitchen inside your property, then we’re here and ready to help move your project forward. If you’re ready to upgrade or create an entirely new look for your kitchen, then we’re here and ready to help move your project forward. Lift your kitchen or bathroom design to new levels with countertops from BCS, the industry standard in stone countertops.
When installing natural stone countertop surfaces in your kitchen, bathrooms, or other areas of the home, there are several factors to consider. One thing you can’t ignore is cost, and there’s no getting around the fact that prefab options are less expensive. One of the prefab countertops that has been soaring in popularity is quartz. Compared with granite, marble, and quartzite, which are natural stones, quartz is man-made and has a lot of unique benefits.
These are custom-made countertops created from a single slab of stone. Homeowners can go to a supplier and choose the exact piece of stone they want, and there is virtually an endless range of colors and textures available. Although these slabs are quite costly, no two are alike — you’re truly getting a completely unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art. Finally, prefabricated stone countertops only come with bullnose edging, which is a completely rounded edge. While most homeowners don’t mind this standard detailing, know that you’ll likely have to go with a custom slab if you wanted any kind of customization to the edge.
With larger stone slabs, they have to be structurally sound enough to withstand the mining process. That can point to higher quality and a more reliable countertop. Plus, given the unfinished nature of a slab, it’s easier to see any structural problems or pattern inconsistencies. Prefabricated countertops for bathrooms often come with a hole for the sink. Since kitchens vary in size, it’s less common for prefab kitchen counters to come with a hole for the sink. We do have very competitive fabrication and installation rates for your counter top slabs.
Whether you are considering a kitchen upgrade or involved in a new construction there will be plenty of decisions to make. Not only do you have to pick and choose the cabinet types, handles, colors, and other minor details but countertop design also plays a big role in the process. There are obviously different colors to paint a kitchen and while adding a splash here or there has always been relevant, the timeless classics are also still extremely popular. Greys, whites, black, and earthtones rule the day but adding multiple colors or alternate island countertops are increasing in popularity.
After you get an idea of what you want, you’ll browse a huge warehouse where you can choose the pieces of stone. Whatever finish you opt for, take comfort in knowing that your concrete is protected. TRUESEAL is a proprietary, 3-layer coating technology that Trueform applies to all countertops. Once cured, it forms a hard, protective skin on the concrete that simultaneously shields it from stain agents while highlighting the concrete’s natural color and variation. Classic is smoother and more uniform in appearance while Foundry has a mottled, hand-troweled look with a very subtle surface texture.
