Michigan Granite & Natural Stone Contractor in Grosse Pointe Park

Have you ever looked at two pieces of granite that looked similar but were priced drastically different? Why is there a price difference? For many materials it is as simple as logistics. Compare driving from Grosse Pointe Park, MI to Brasil and then traveling from Grosse Pointe Park, MI to Zimbabwe. So the higher priced stone is most likely from a location that requires more handling.

Natural stone near unanimous pick among NKBA design competition finalists (Shelby Township, MI)

If there was ever any doubt that natural stone is the preferred countertop material for kitchens and baths, a list of finalists in a nationwide competition for kitchen and bath designers and their choice of stone should put that to rest. Among the 30 projects selected as finalists for the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s “Art of the Industry” annual design competition, 80% or 24 installations, included natural stone for countertops. The finalists were selected from more than 550 entries from across the U.S.

Half of the 24 entries that used natural stone included granite countertops, while five used marble, three limestone and one each soapstone and onyx. Among the six non-natural stone projects, two picked wood and one each utilized engineered stone, solid surface and glass.

“These results again reinforce the inherent beauty, durability, functionality and safety of all types of natural stone in kitchen and bath environments,” said Gary Distelhorst, executive vice president of the Marble Institute of America. “The fact that a majority of designers continue to make granite and other natural stones their first choice for kitchen and bath applications is extremely noteworthy. We obviously commend the finalists for their selection of natural stone over other surface materials.”

Finalists in the NKBA competition were selected in 10 categories, including small, medium, large and open plan kitchens; small, medium and large bathrooms; powder rooms, showrooms and specialty rooms.

The NKBA praised the designers for their “inherent talent and practiced skill and with an appreciation reserved for fine art.” According to sghomeinteriors.com
