Undermount bar sink

A small stainless undermount sink is a great option for a bar.  It saves countertop space and shows off the cross section of the thick 3 cm stone.

This is a 50-50 (equal sized bowls) stainless steel kitchen sink.  No grout lines to clean and you can wipe off your countertops straight into the sink.  An easy attractive option that complements granite well.

Marble Slab

Here is a slab of Rainforest Brown marble with some great veins that came in today.  Marble, though slightly more porous than granite, is a classic option for bartops and vanities and comes in a fantastic variety of colors.

Improving Resale Value

Updating your old laminate and corian countertops is the most cost effective way to improve the value of your home.  There are plenty of options, from natural stone like granite, marble, and soapstone to manmade quartz products like cambria and silestone to recycled green products like Icestone and Vetrazzo.  Here is an article from the Wall Street Journal about maxing out your resale value.

Come take a look at your options.  It might be cheaper than you think.

Onyx in Houston

Honey Onyx Bar

Honey Onyx Bar

Onyx is a great option for bars as it can be backlit.  Here is a bar we fabricated for a condo on Kirby.  This one is honey onyx, but there is a pretty wide range of colors to choose from.

Welcome to Stone Store!

This is the new blog from the Stone Store in Houston, Texas.  We fabricate and install custom countertops out of any natural stone, recycled glass and concrete, butcher block, or quartz product on the market.  Our goal with this blog is to inform people of the daunting array of options when choosing new countertops, and hopefully help make the process a little less stressful.

We will be posting photos of different jobs we have finished, different colors of granite and marble that are available, and different edge profiles we offer.  We will try to answer questions about granite and marble maintenance.  We will touch on pricing, granite vs quartz myths, new technology, “green” countertops, and anything else a consumer might need to know.

Please feel free to comment, e-mail, call, or just stop by our showroom.
