Welcome a taste of Italian luxury into your home at an unbeatable price, and enjoy all the benefits of Quarella quartz and marble.

Quarella Quartz

Quarella quartz is renowned for its refined elegance and incredible durability. It’s a popular choice for residential and commercial projects of all sizes due to its balance of aesthetics and practicality. It’s produced using a combination of 95% authentic quartz granules and 5% other materials such as glass and pebbles. This results in distinctive colors, patterns, and graining that have become signature to Quarella. We have over 30 varieties of Quarella quartz products available, so you’re guaranteed to find a perfect match for your home. From pure white to deep black and shiny polish to matte Velvet Touch, there’s a wide selection created to suit any interior design style. 

Quarella quartz is also specially engineered to provide a more controlled result and a superior quality to natural stone. Crushed quartz stone powders, polyester resin binding agent, color pigments, and additional aesthetic materials such as glass are mixed and refined in order to achieve a consistent result that stands apart from other quartz products on the market. Their quartz products are scratch-resistant, water-resistant, stain-resistant, and non-porous. Quarella quartz is a low-maintenance and easy to clean option, making it ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, work areas, and even as flooring. 

Quarella Marble

Marble countertops are a polarizing topic. While some love marble for its clean and sophisticated appearance, others refuse to use marble because it scratches and stains more easily than other stone options. With Quarella’s engineered marble, homeowners never have to sacrifice beauty for practicality; engineered marble is extremely durable, making it ideal for use throughout your home. Quarella marble is made from a mixture of marble pieces and resin, rather than 100% pure marble, which results in a product that is much stronger than natural stone. Engineered stone can be controlled to have much greater durability and a consistent design pattern. Being able to manipulate the material and have control over the finished product allows you to know exactly what your new countertops will look like before they’re ordered and installed. Quarella marble has the beauty of a marble with the strength of a granite, so you can have the best of both worlds.

If you want to experience the unparalleled quality of Italian craftsmanship in your home, choose Quarella quartz or marble for your next remodel. As the exclusive North American distributor, only Best Cheer Stone can provide you with Quarella’s market-leading products. No matter which stone or style you like best, Best Cheer Stone consistently offers some of the best quality products at highly competitive prices.

4 Remodeling Areas To Increase Property Value

For most people, buying a home is the largest purchase they will ever make. Some families choose their homes for purely personal reasons, while others keep value and return on investment in mind. Regardless of your motivation behind purchasing a property, there is a small chance you will live there for the rest of your life. There is a very good chance that you will be reselling at some point. Knowing where to most effectively invest your money and maximize the value and return potential is a worthy endeavor that can pay off big. Kitchens, bathrooms, landscaping, and adding extensions offer some of the biggest increases in property value in regards to renovations, but even within those spaces, there are certain projects that are more worthy of your time and money than others. Following are four areas that you should remodel that can help increase your property value.

1. Replace Kitchen Countertops

Kitchens offer a huge return on investment when it comes to renovating. From new cabinets, lighting, flooring, appliances, and countertops, there are lots of ways to spruce up a kitchen, and let’s face it, the kitchen is often seen as the heart of the home.

When most people approach a kitchen renovation, the main projects are kitchen cabinets and countertops. For anyone looking for the investment potential of countertops, staying away from laminate is the most important thing to remember. They are the cheapest but also can show marks easily and are not what buyers will be looking for in the event that you are selling your property in the short- or long-term future. ​Quartz vs hardwood countertops​ is a common decision that most new homeowners are faced with. In terms of return, buyers love to see the natural stone options; they are beautiful to look at, don’t need refinishing, are durable, heat resistant, and non-porous. ​Wood kitchen countertops​ ( or “butcher block”) are beautiful and warm but need a lot of protection and maintenance. Since wood is more porous, these will need resealing at some point.

2. Bathroom Renos

Bathroom renovations are just behind kitchens in terms of return on investment value. New flooring, toilet, shower and bath, tiling, lighting, and fixtures can make a huge difference in look, function, and value. Keep in mind that the best places to spend money in a bathroom reno are those that are used the most: toilet, bath/shower, sink, and flooring.

3. Landscaping/Backyard Projects

Renovating the outdoor space of a property can increase curb appeal and offer a lot of value. When it comes to the backyard, buyers love when it flows with the home and offers additional living space. New decks offer a lot of value, and it’s important to consider the benefits of ​hardwood vs composite decking​. Landscaping upgrades with more greenery, flowers, and adding decorative touches like aggregate stone pathways, retaining walls, or stepping stones can make a huge improvement. A well-maintained outdoor space can be a selling point for any listing. Often times, this can mean as little as some DIY handiwork or simply just tidying up, but full-scale landscaping and backyard renovations are sure to make potential buyers swoon for your property.

4. Home Extensions

Adding a home extension has a huge positive impact on property value. Not only does it increase a property’s square footage, but it can also make the floor plan of the space more functional, aesthetically pleasing, and spacious while offering the potential for rental income. Home extensions connect people by enticing loved ones to come to visit, thus offering an emotional connection to the potential buyer — a proven and effective sales tactic.

The key to home extensions is getting a competent, experienced and knowledgeable contractor to handle the job to ensure that it is done right. Another thing to consider is the use of innovative new materials, such as insulated concrete forms, for construction. This ​modern home design​ offers long-term durability, and unparalleled weather resistance while insulating a home much better than plywood and ​wood frame construction​.

You also don’t want to end up with a home extension that looks like it was added as an after-thought; you want your extension to compliment the pre-existing home while blending in and accentuating its already-existing positives.

When it comes to selling your home, it is worth the time of careful due diligence to find out which areas are worthy of your renovation’s time, energy, and money. Kitchen countertops, bathroom upgrades, outdoor renos, and home extensions are four areas that offer a big pay-off in terms of return on investment.
