Fun Ways to Use Remnant Stone

Jul 27th, 2018

Many stone fabricators and contractors may throw their remnants away, but that doesn’t mean they belong in the trash. While there are many remnants that are large enough to use for your full fabrication needs, some are too small to use for a countertop or island. That doesn’t mean they can’t be used for something else though! Here are a few exciting ways to make smaller pieces of leftover marble or granite a beautiful new addition to your home.

Spruce Up Your Yard with Stone

Do you think stone is just for interior design? Well think again! Granite or marble pavers are the perfect addition to your outdoor space. Using remnant stone is a perfect way to bring the luxurious feel of natural stone to your backyard at an affordable price point. Whether you’re looking for paving stones, a barbeque grill island surround, or to wrap your pool, it’s a no-brainer to use remnant stone for your project.

Brighten Up Your Bathroom Vanity

If you’re tired of looking at the same old laminate or wood vanity, we don’t blame you. Not only are these materials harder to clean, but they also don’t provide the same sense of luxury that a marble, granite or quartz top would. Using a remnant from is the perfect way to add a touch of class to your vanity top. Check out one of our clients' bathroom vanities below for some inspiration!

Accent Your Windowsills or Mantle

There’s no better way to complement your new kitchen counters or marble fireplace than by pairing it with more stone. While it might not make sense to purchase another whole slab just to add a small pop of color, remnant marble can usually be gotten at a steep discount. With such stunning beauty, you’ll find it hard to look away for long enough to enjoy the view!

Protect Your Furniture

You have a beautiful dining room table or quartz countertops; why ruin them by putting hot serving dishes or pots and pans on it?
