Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 16, 2014
For more than 25 years, Traditional Designs LTD has provided homeowners in the Houston metro area with the latest trends in countertops, flooring, and cabinets. It is been particularly renowned for the vast range of options regarding its kitchen countertops, which are available in quartz and granite. Recently, Traditional Designs announced the decision to offer an online interactive kitchen tool for choosing the color and style of a granite kitchen countertop.
Hard and tough, granite has been used for thousands of years due to the stone's high level of durability and aesthetic quality. Granite countertops are more expensive than quartz, which, coincidentally is crafted to look like natural granite. However, granite is far more durable and adds natural beauty to the kitchen counter top.
At the Traditional Designs website, customers can now look at the granite choices from all angles, like as if they are actually looking at the real thing. They can choose between a polished finish, which means the counter top is smooth and shiny; and a matte finish, which entails that it is non-glossy.
Customers would also have the opportunity to visualize the 16 different counter top edge styles available. Grouped into five categories, the edge choices range from the basic to the elaborate. Edge styles—some of which are named after the shapes, objects, and curves they mimic or possess—include Straight Edge, Knife, Bullnose, Pencil, Bevel, Waterfall, and Bullnose.
The size or thickness of each edge style is 0.75 (3/4") inches or 1.5 (1 ½") inches. The ¾" edge, which is conventional in the Houston market, possesses the thickness of 2-centimeter (2CM) granite. The 1 ½" edge is laminated and equivalent to getting a 3CM counter top. Traditional Designs produces it by placing laminated piece on the ¾" edge for a thicker appearance. With a longer production period, the 1 ½" edge styles are more expensive than their ¾" counterparts.
Customers interested in kitchen countertops from Traditional Designs can contact the company once they have decided on their style, color, and finish options. A faxed sketch or drawing of the desired project—along with specifications, such as material type, thickness, and type of sink—would be helpful to the company's staff of professionals.
