Old Meets New

The old world simplicity of natural granite and marble slabs in Hamilton has joined with the speed and efficiency of new world technology.
Many dealers now have computerized technology to design and work with the stone slabs which makes the design process for creating cut-outs and custom edges more expansive and the relationship between customer and fabricator easy, efficient, and productive. Designing can be as easy as creating a pattern as a computer file and letting the computerized equipment do the rest. The advent of computerized technology in production has many advantages including timeliness of delivery and proficiency of the design experience. The world of granite and marble slab interior design has opened up to keep pace in our ever-changing 21st century.

Get the Edge on Design

No longer do your hips need to be bruised by running into the sharp square edge of a hip-height countertop. Instead, you can choose from a variety of edge treatments and finishes that add another level of detail to your interior design. With character names such as Bullnose, Ogee Setback, Triple Pencil and more, the edge treatment you choose can complement the style of cabinetry, furnishings or mood of the space you are decorating.  A softer edge can add a smoother edge to protect your hips while an Ogee setback could add an intriguing detail to set your granite and marble slab apart.
In addition, you can choose from several finishes for granite and marble slabs that will add a further defining touch to your granite and marble slab treatment. The most standard finish for granite and marble slabs is polished, which is the least porous of the finishes available. In a honed finish the polishing process is stopped before the stone achieves a high state of gloss. A leathered finish adds texture to the surface and closes the pores and is not as reflective as a polished surface. A caressed finish adds gloss to a leathered finish.
