Gone are the days of laminate counter tops in the kitchen. Everyone wants stone. But what kind? Do you go with something exotic or traditional? What suits your style? Remember, you have to live with it every day!

When you go to the stone yard, expect to see the whole slab. This is the right way to pick your slab.


Beautiful soapstone!

This granite has lots of movement. Make sure you don't mind looking at it every day.

This thick slab has what is known as a "live edge".

This striated stone makes for great conversation. The stone was formed over millennium of compression of the earth surface. If those layers could talk!

More slabs to look at!
