Choosing the best granite thickness: two centimeters vs. three

Looking for a new, fresh countertop?

Picking the right material, color, and design gives your kitchen or bathroom an instant facelift. When it comes to choosing the right thickness for those granite countertops, however? Not quite as exciting!

It is often not a priority decision but choosing the right slab thickness is vital as it affects every aspect of the installation and long-term reliability of your new counters. Let us explain how to pick the perfect thickness for your granite countertops—and why it’s so important.

 

The Basics

Traditionally, granite countertops are available in two options: two centimeters and three centimeters-thick.

And while a centimeter difference may not seem like much, everything from the installation, short-term price, long-term value, and overall strength are impacted by this one decision.

Here’s what you need to know:

 

Strength

We’ve all done it: leaned against the kitchen counter while reading a recipe or propped our child on the edge to tie his shoe.

Kitchens are the busiest rooms in our home, and our counters should be up to the challenge.

But the truth is, a two-centimeter granite slab can’t handle as much pressure (eek!) as its thicker counterpart. This is especially true around narrow cuts such as in front of a sink. While three-centimeter counters are strong enough to support their own weight when being installed, two-centimeter slabs have to be installed on top of plywood decking to boost its strength and resistance. When scrutinized the plywood is in fact visible from underneath the top. Your guests are unlikely to notice it but you will. Just reaching underneath your two-centimeter laminated top you will be able to feel the plywood support as opposed to polished stone.

Meanwhile, three-centimeter countertops can withstand an overhang of up to a foot, which makes for an ideal, casual eating area.

 

Price

The more material you use, the higher the cost, right? Well, with granite countertops, this isn’t entirely true.

Sure, three-centimeter slabs are technically more expensive than two-centimeter slabs…if you’re only paying for the material alone; however, the installation is simpler, the fabrication costs remain the same, and handling requires a less strenuous attention—as two-centimeter slabs are more delicate.

So, what does this mean? At Primera, the cost of 3cm slabs are about the same as 2cm slabs.

 

Long-Term Value

Three-centimeter granite countertops are, ultimately, more valuable in the long-term. The material is stronger and has a sleeker aesthetic, as the profile can be fabricated with more detail.

That’s not to say two-centimeter slabs can’t be fabricated; in fact, they often are. But this is only made possible with the process of lamination, another point off the two-centimeter slab’s value.

Here’s why:

 

Two-Centimeter Slabs and Lamination

Laminate treatments are used frequently on two-centimeter granite countertops. This process involves applying a thin strip of the same material under the entire border of the countertop (think of it like a small, upside-down fence).

Lamination essentially makes the countertops look thicker, but the seam between the strip and the counter is noticeable—and the countertop is no stronger because of it.

 

Here’s the Deal

At Primera, we think it’s a bit silly to charge more for three-centimeter granite countertops when the installation, handling, and final result is easier, more efficient, and truly gorgeous.

We’ve seen a pattern:

Two-centimeter slabs tend to be more popular. But the slab requires the edge to be laminated, a labor-intensive process—not to mention the seam is visible. The three-centimeter slab, however, requires no lamination and can be completed faster.

Overall, three-centimeter granite countertops simply offer a much cleaner, more contemporary look while proving to be stronger and offer better value as they cost about the same.

So, are you ready for your new granite countertop? Reach out and we’ll give you the look you’ll love and the strength you need, within your budget and on time.

News flash: mixing metals in your kitchen is more than okay!

You may have heard it the first time you put on one of your mother’s gold necklaces and paired it with her silver bangles.

Or the time you came home from the hardware store with brass towel racks for your family’s bathroom, only to be met with stares of disbelief as your spouse pointed out the chrome faucet and knobs.

We’ve all heard it somewhere: “You can’t mix metals! Gold with gold, silver with silver, copper with copper, etc.”

Finally, there’s good news for those who’ve always bucked the “matchy-matchy” system, since mixing metals isn’t just acceptable—it’s hot!

As more and more designers enter the arena to show off their metal-mingling acumen, the look is catching on everywhere.

The caveat?

There is a method to the mixing madness, so don’t go rushing to the fixture store just yet.

We’ll start things off by going on record as saying there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the kitchen below. If you appreciate a smooth, uniform look, then matching your stainless steel appliances with silver drawer pulls, faucet and chairs is a nice choice.

 

But take a look at this:

 

Even though both kitchens are primarily white, the difference in tone is the difference between a brisk winter morning and a balmy summer afternoon. Compared to the first kitchen, the second exudes warmth and gives the eye so much more to do.

Of course, the flooring has a lot to do with it, but check out those antique brass pendant lights. Not only are they the perfect complement to the stainless steel hood and appliances, but they pull they entire room together and guide its overall tenor.

We also like the black iron light fixtures next to the hood and the black sliding track over the refrigerator. This designer has done a masterful job mixing three metals to gorgeous effect, which leads us to hint number one (we call them “hints” because this is not about rules):

  1. 1.    Stick to two or three metals in order to avoid an overly “busy” or confused look (unless you really know what you’re doing).

 

Below is another example of a warmer metal saving an already chilled-out space from being a touch too frosty. Although the designer went with only two metals here, the antique copper pendants are all that’s needed to offset, even complement, the room’s coolness.

 

 

Below we see three cool metals being used together for a pleasingly eclectic look. Although the metals used here more correlative than contrasting, the finishes are not. And that’s what makes it interesting! Yep, texture mixing isn’t off-limits either. From the brushed stainless steel hood to the satin nickel faucet to the polished stainless steel canister set, this scene provides some fiber for your visual diet.

You’ll also notice that the black iron light fixture ties in perfectly with the black iron cabinet pulls, the darker lower cabinetry and the island, making this kitchen charcoal dominant, which brings us to our next hint:

  1. 2.    When mixing metals, pick a dominant one that’s used more than once and position the others as accent pieces.

 

Here’s another great example of a lovely dominant metal informing the ambiance of an entire room:

 

 

We love the copper hood, sink and bar top and think they look splendid with both the stainless steel appliances and the brushed bronze light fixtures. This kitchen positively glows with hospitality, thanks in no small part to the prevailing copper influence.

But copper also does a bang-up job in a supporting role, too. Doesn’t this hammered copper sink look amazing amongst its vintage nickel and stainless steel neighbors?

 

 

The last hint we’re going to offer involves visual planes and we’ll lead with our example:

 

At first glance, this kitchen seemingly has a lot going on, but it’s metal medley arrangement is really quite simple. Here we have a juxtaposition of mostly ebony tones with both brushed and antique brass, with a little stainless steel thrown in for good measure. But if we divide the room by horizontal planes, we see that the brassware is mostly contained to the central portion of the room.

Even though there are myriad elements at work in this kitchen, it’s still cohesive and has a sense of order, since the rich, bold, darker surroundings are made snug and toasty by the burnished brass that constitutes the “heart” of this space. So, hint number three is:

  1. 3.    When mixing metals, try to keep different finishes on separate horizontal visual planes (divide the room into bottom, middle and top).

 

As we mentioned before, none of our tips are hard and fast rules.

In fact, if you paid close attention, you may have noticed one or more of our tips were completely disregarded in many of our own examples. Of course, most of our examples are the work of professional designers and our tips are merely guidelines for people who are just getting started.

When it comes right down to it, so many of today’s trends are about breaking rules, making it a most opportune time to “get your remodel on.”  Never before have there been so many fun and exciting options, or as many ways to express your unique personality.

If you’d like to know more about what we’ve covered here, or see other combinations and possibilities that will really get your brain humming, reach out any time to schedule an appointment.

Tile in style: pick the perfect tile floors for your bathroom

.

tile

Tile is one of the most versatile flooring options available—perfect for filling your bathroom with personality and character, and creating the soothing, relaxing space of your dreams. Whether you prefer a traditional look and feel, or want a sleek, modern spot, it all starts with finding the perfect tile for your bathroom.

Natural Stone Tile

Spa in the Sky
Natural stone tile, like granite, marble, or travertine, creates a stunning look for bathroom floors. The one-of-a-kind designs and colors, like the metal slabs made by Bedrosians Tile and Stone, add a relaxing, calming element to spa-like bathrooms. Some homeowners even use river rock to add in an even more nature-based design.

Natural stone tile must be sealed before use, and requires regular upkeep. With ongoing care, though, the tile will remain beautiful and functional for many years to come.

 

Ceramic Tile Floors

Contemporary Country House in Berkshire

Made from shaped and dried clay, ceramic tile is extremely durable, low maintenance, and stain, odor, and dirt-resistant. Ceramic tile is easily cleaned with warm water, and is an ideal covering for homeowners with residents who have allergies or asthma.

From gorgeous shaped and hand-painted tiles to the wood-look tiles from Arizona Tile, there are a variety of different options for your bathroom.

 

Porcelain Tile Floors

Porcelain is an extremely durable and flexible material used for bathroom floor tile. Before being turned into tile, the clay is more rigorously purified, and produces a stronger material. Porcelain is not slippery when wet, and requires very little maintenance. Some homeowners have found that sealing and glazing their porcelain tile can give the floor a greater longevity.

The Daltile Bee Hive porcelain tile collection creates a unique look for any bathroom. With color options of white, ivory, taupe, shades of grey or black, their tile collection allows you to bring a sophisticated whimsy to your bathroom.

 

Glass Tile

Glass tile can also bring a whimsical feel, and can provide homeowners with a wider variety of colors and shapes than other tile options. Unfortunately, glass tile can also be very slippery, so it should primarily be used as an accent tile or as a backsplash.

Shaw Floors has some beautiful glass tile options. We especially like the versatility of the Mercury Glass collection, which comes in many shades of blues, grays, and browns.

 

Tiles Top Styles

There are a variety of different layouts you can choose from for your bathroom. You might use tiles with unique patterns to take advantage of a large space for a simple, attractive straight or diagonal layout. This emphasizes a large space and also presents a stunning, elegant backdrop for other pieces in your bathroom, bringing out the shapes and colors of your furniture. Ideally, tiles used for a straight or diagonal layout will be large, giving space for the true color and pattern of the tile to shine through.

In smaller bathrooms, patterned layouts can be used to create interest, energy, and excitement:

  • Pinwheel layouts involve larger squares offset by smaller square tiles of a different color
  • Octagon and dot mosaics place darker colored diamond-shaped tiles in between lighter octagon-shaped tiles
  • Windmill mosaic layouts surround small square tiles with longer rectangles
  • Running bond, which staggers rectangular tiles, is great for subway tiles or other tiles in different color variations
  • Creative layouts like herringbone, or modular layouts that incorporate tiles of multiple sizes, colors, and patterns, can be stunning in bathrooms of all sizes, helping to bring a sense of artistry to large spaces while enlarging small spaces.

Before you buy your tile, decide on the layout you want, as certain shapes and sizes are more conducive to particular layouts and designs. Working with a provider who can give you a picture of what your options might look like can help you decide on the appropriate scaling and shades for your tile floor.

Primera’s designers and professionals have extensive experience helping everyone from contractors to homeowners find the perfect components of their dream homes. With more than 40 years of experience, in-house fabrication, and a variety of pricing packages, we can take you from beginning to end, working with creative, professionals from the designers to the certified installers for your tile floor. Contact us today to get started on your new bathroom.

Mystery surface series: marble

Marble is a classic beauty that never goes out of style. It’s been used for centuries and continues to be popular today, gracing the surfaces in many homes and commercial settings.

While we’re all familiar with the elegance marble brings to any space, there are some lesser known facts about, and uses for, this material that are helpful to know if you’re considering using this luxurious stone in your home.

The Maintenance Factor

Marble is a porous material, making it more susceptible to stains. It’s particularly sensitive to acids from substances such as red wine, tomato sauce, coffee, and blueberries. But there’s a common misperception that marble will stain instantly and this isn’t the case. It stains when these substances have soaked into the surface, which will happen if left to sit for a long period, like overnight.

Aside from simply cleaning marble surfaces after each use, there are some other things you can do to maintain its appearance for as long as possible.

1) Seal It - While a sealer won’t protect your marble completely, it will buy you a little more time if an acidic substance isn’t wiped up right away.

2) Spot Treat It - Spot treat high use areas periodically using a spray cleaner that doubles as a sealant. Kitchen countertops and areas around bath faucets are two areas that can benefit from this treatment.

3) Consider Polished vs. Honed - A polished marble has a bit more stain resistance than honed marble, which tends to be slightly more absorbent. Many homeowners select a polished marble in high use areas for this reason.

Carrara Vs. Calacatta

Two gorgeous and better known types of marble are Carrara and Calacatta. These Italian marbles are often confused since they’re similar in appearance, both being white with gray veining.

Generally, Carrara tends to be grayer with a softer veining, while Calacatta is whiter and has a bolder veining.

Calacatta Super Extra

http://www.arizonatile.com/CALACATTA-SUPER-EXTRA-P1283.aspx

Carrara veining tends to be linear and is more readily available, while Calacatta is rarer and considered to be more of a luxury stone. There are many types of Calacatta including Calacatta Gold, a variation with gold mixed in.

 

Calacatta Gold Vein

Marble in Home Designs

Marble is naturally textured and uniquely veined, with each slab having its own individual characteristics. Available in many natural patterns and colors, it’s easy to find a style perfectly suited to any décor.

Here are some ways to incorporate this lovely natural stone into your home.

  • Add sophistication and function to any kitchen, whether using marble on a countertop, island, or backsplash.
  • Create a stunning effect by using marble on a fireplace surround.
  • Use marble to create an elegant, rich feel anywhere in a bathroom, making it a comforting place to relax at the end of the day.
  • Design a tile feature wall with marble for a unique headboard in a master bedroom.
  • Make a tile rug out of marble to create a classy yet cozy feel in any room.

Keep in mind that marble is a natural product that will age over time, regardless of where it’s used. Many love marble for the beautiful patina look it acquires over time. So expect signs of wear and tear from foot traffic on a marble floor, or on a much used kitchen countertop, and enjoy the beauty it brings to your home!

Simple steps to kitchen staging and design

pk

 Selling your home? Great, get ready to stage your kitchen. When it comes to staging to see there are a few things to consider. Decluttering, reorganizing and cleaning are a great start but what other steps are essential when you want to put your home on the market?

Tidy and Reorganize

Look around at your kitchen. Is there something that you always wanted to change but never got around to?? Are there appliances or furniture that always get in the way? Unnecessary items that makes your kitchen look cramped for space? Well, whatever it is, it is time for a change. Take the time to tidy and reorganize your kitchen. This means consolidating- leave as few items in sight as possible. Let your kitchen breathe. Get rid of the stuff you don’t need and dump the rest in the cabinets. Clear off your countertops to create the feeling of a larger kitchen. Remember, when it comes to home staging- less is more.

Remove Extra Items

Leave the essentials in an easy to reach place; keep the rest in drawers . It is crucial to get rid of anything unnecessary in order to open up more space and to make the kitchen look larger. This includes removing as many furnishings as possible. Excess furniture and fittings only get in the way; not to mention, they can make a room appear smaller. If you want to make your kitchen more inviting, create the perception of more space. So get rid of trolleys, free standing islands and any other large pieces you can go without. Also, no extra chairs. If goal is to sell your home, then be open to the idea of storing or getting rid of some unnecessary furniture. Be ruthless. It will pay off in the end.

Clean, Clean, Clean

Last but not least, don’t forget to clean your kitchen. It doesn’t matter what stage of the process you do this in, as long as you do it. Nothing will make your kitchen more attractive than spotless countertops, dust-free floor, immaculate appliances and organized shelves. Keep your blender, microwave, dishwasher and fridge clean, vacuum and mop the floor, dust all areas that have never gotten near the microfiber cloth. Do what’s necessary to get every part of the kitchen gleaming and smelling fresh-and take your time! This is one area where cutting corners is not an options if you intend to sell your home. The best way to attract prospective buyers is with a kitchen that looks and smells clean as a whistle!

Additional Advice

Replace heavy curtains and drapes. They can only make the place look smaller and crowded. You need to let more natural light into the room- choose cheerful colors.

Repaint the walls. Choose bright like-tone colors, consider getting rid of wall hangings, think minimalist style-the less stuff in your kitchen, the better it will look.

Remove tablecloths. Stick to the rule- less is more. Add some fruits in a simple basket or a vase of flowers as simple accent piece.

Get rid of pot racks. They create the feeling of storage shortage and can potentially give buyers the perception of a space shortage. If you don’t want to part with your pot racks (they look great in your kitchen, they hold sentimental value or you simply don’t have anywhere else to keep them), then make sure to hang only the bare minimum.

Depersonalize. This means you need to remove as many personal items, such as pictures and knick-knacks, as possible still maintaining an inviting and warm atmosphere.

My last tip is to create a balanced kitchen. Space your items evenly and maintain consistent color schemes.

Hope this helps to sell your home faster and at a better price. Good luck!

4 tips on kitchen countertops that make or break your kitchen in phoenix, arizona

primera  blog

One of the very first things you notice when you walk into a kitchen is the countertops.  If they are glossy and perfect you can’t help but drag your fingertips over the finish; imagining the dinner parties and delicious meals the room and countertops will inspire.  Kitchens hold great weight for contractors and designers because they are the number one room that can win or lose the heart of a buyer.

2.  What are some of the choices you can make to create unique kitchen countertops that are guaranteed to stand out? After buyers select the countertop, whether the material is: granite, marble, limestone, or quartz, they can then customize the edge detail’s style and thickness.  Another distinct feature is creating island tops that look more like furniture pieces with pop outs and/or radius’s.  Customizing tile backsplashes, whether simple or complex, is also an area where creativity and uniqueness can be displayed.

3.  Some of the popular trends in the Phoenix market right now are in the contemporary realm.  Primera Interiors is seeing more quartz countertops being installed than ever, as well as marble and limestone.  These materials are popular because they give a clean look to a kitchen and support this increasingly popular modern look.

4.  As far as color goes, lighter colors seem to be more popular with Arizona home buyers; especially the colors white and cream.

Interior design cannot emphasis enough the power of kitchens—they are the heart of the home.  That is one of the reasons why Primera Interiors in Phoenix offers such a selection of quality and beautiful kitchen countertops.  We also have our own fabrication shop so every stage of our countertop creation process is monitored with care and great attention to quality control.
