New Countertops

Looking to get away from that laminate countertop and into something more upscale?  Most local countertop specialists have showrooms for you to come and choose a new countertop.  Most companies will specialize in marble, granite, quartz, stainless steel or wood and many companies will offer free quotes.  Big box stores like Home Depot or Lowes can offer a wide range of materials to choose from.

New Backsplash

A new backsplash is a great way to change up the look of a worn out kitchen.  Mix in some metal tiles with ceramic to break up the look.  With our pewter wall tiles you can choose a favorite design and then your favorite color from one of our 9 designer finishes.
