Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Used since antiquity, granite is a popular choice for kitchen countertops due to the stone's aesthetic qualities and high level of durability. In Texas, one of the more prominent companies providing countertops is Traditional Designs, LTD, which has two locations in the Houston metropolitan area. Recently, the company introduced a new line of granite countertops for residents in Houston and Galveston.
This recent development is in response to the growing preference of granite countertops, particularly slab granite. Unlike other types of countertops, slab granite has a limited number of seams. With countertops that are no wider than 7 feet, there might be no seams at all. Thus, customers tend to get completely smooth countertops with slab granite.
Customers can choose from 16 granite countertop edges, and their sizes are usually 0.75 (¾") or 1.5 inches (1 ½") thick. Types of edges include more conventional designs, such as Straight Edge; Pencil, which resembles the butt of a pencil; and Bullnose, which features a convex design. Other types of edges are more elaborate; they include Chiseld, Bevel, Demi-Bullnose, Knife, and Ogee.
The ¾" edge has the thickness of 2-centimeter (2CM) granite, which is typical in the Houston market. If the customer opts for the ¾" edge, professionals from Traditional Designs, LTD would modify the slab concrete on the countertop's exposed areas for a different profile. However, customers can opt for the 1 ½" edge, which is laminated and is equivalent to getting a 3CM countertop. The 1 ½" edge is produced by placing a laminated piece on the ¾" edge for a thicker appearance. Customers should note that 3CM materials are more expensive and would take a longer time to arrive for working on the countertop.
Traditional Designs, LTD has a friendly and knowledgeable sales team on board for helping customers pinpoint their preferred granite countertop finishes. Customers can also choose from the wide range of colors available; they include variations of white, gray, black, and green.
