I have been helping clients select their counter tops for the past ten years. I’m a big fan of the natural stone, granite. It is challenging for manufactured solid surfaces to compete with the colorful flows and patterns of this natural stone. Granite is available in many colors and ranges from large moving patterns to more predictable patterns. Competitors point out that granite is naturally porous, however, slabs are getting sealed at the fabricators or at installation and will last 10-15 yrs. Cambria’s quartz stone surfaces have done a good job designing newer patterns (such as the Waterstone collection) that simulates the beauty of granite while offering superior strength and anti-bacterial feature. Once considered rather pricey, granite is now comparable in price to other options.
Here is a kitchen that just had cabinets and granite counter tops installed. The back splash (and appliances) will pull it all together once they’re installed this week.
This 55-year old woman had always wanted a nice bathroom that she could wake up to and enjoy!

I am working on some fun projects. I just helped a family finish their lower level. They had a big old entertainment center that was solid oak. We donated the top portion and decided to re-purpose the cabinet base. We primed the wood and painted it with a warm cocoa ebony color. The final step will be to paint a gel stain over the painted wood.
The patients of this dental office are enjoying the welcoming feeling they get.

This new sofa was delivered and suddenly nothing else in the room was working for this couple. We started by installing this textured wallpaper to soften the space with a warm wall color.

Now that the kids were teens it was time to update this Eagle Valley home. The first thing we did was replace the carpeting with a hand scraped wood floor. Comfort was the goal for the remainder of the project.

When this homeowner built her townhome 15 years ago she wanted a southwestern decor. When it came time to list the property this year we had to neutralize the decor.

This single guy was tired of looking at his ugly white tile walls. We installed a porcelain tile that resembles barn wood to better suit his taste!
