Atlanta residents know that Best Cheer Stone offers some of the most luxurious stone countertops in the country at an extremely competitive price. However, we also offer an exclusive line of cabinetry which bridges the gap between exquisite quality and affordability. Koville Cabinetry gives you the creative freedom to customize your kitchen within your budget thanks to dozens of unique pieces that you can mix, match, and customize. Pairing Koville cabinetry with our stone countertop selections will guarantee you a one-of-a-kind design that will make your home the envy of the neighborhood. 

Traditional & Classic

For homes that prefer a more traditional design, we recommend pairing rich cabinetry with warm-toned granite. Koville’s honey or dark cherry shakers are the perfect touch to any traditional design and will help make your new kitchen feel like home. Select a combination of base cabinets and wall cabinets, plus add accent designs like brackets and corbels to add a touch of sophistication. Pair these tones with a warm granite such as our African Bordeaux or Niagra Gold and complete the look. Rich tones such as those found in golden granites and cherry cabinetry will always be a classic, adding the feeling of home and comfort to any space.

Sleek & Contemporary

For those seeking a more modern design, marble or quartz countertops will pair well with Koville’s neutral color options. The charcoal black, grey silver, and white shaker options from Koville Cabinetry will instantly modernize any space, especially with sleek handles. Pair any of these choices with a monochromatic quartz counter for an ultra-contemporary design. Although some quartz options can have veining that more closely replicates the appearance of granite, minimalistic options such as Arctic White, Astro Black, or Charcoal Grey are perfect for an of-the-moment design aesthetic. Contrast black counters with white cabinets for a popular 2020 design trend, or create eye-catching visuals with all-black or all-gray options. 

Bathroom & Laundry

New counters and cabinetry don’t just elevate your kitchen; they can transform any bathroom or laundry room as well. Quartz countertops are ideal for bathrooms and laundry rooms because they’re engineered to be extremely durable and water-resistant. Although granite is another popular choice, quartz requires less maintenance and doesn’t need to be sealed annually. In order to create a light and airy room, we recommend one of our calacatta quartz options. The light colors will open up the space and make it appear larger, while the veining adds subtle dimension and visual interest. Pair it with Koville’s white shaker cabinet for a beautiful new space that is as stunning as it is practical.

The holidays are a joyous time of year, with friends and family gathering at your home to celebrate the festive season. However, with all the fun of hosting festivities comes the inevitable care, maintenance, and cleanup that follows. If you have a quartz countertop, you’ll benefit from its durability and generally low maintenance requirements. It’s non-porous, stain-resistant, and high-performance, making it a great option for kitchens where social hosting is common. However, although it is relatively difficult to damage, you do need to take certain precautions in order to ensure that it maintains its stunning appearance. As a leading Dallas stone supplier, we here at Best Cheer Stone know all of the best tips and tricks for protecting your quartz countertops during the holiday season.

Add a Second Layer of Protection

Whether it’s using a coaster or a potholder, adding a layer of protection between cookware or glassware and your quartz countertop will help better protect it. Quartz countertops cannot absorb heat in the same way that natural stone countertops can, and therefore it’s crucial to use a hot pad under any hot pans or dishes in order to avoid burning the surface of your counter. When it comes to drinking any beverages, using a coaster is a wise protective measure that can prevent stains. Although quartz doesn’t suffer from ring marks in the same way wood surfaces do, citrus-based drinks can damage quartz counters.

Wipe Up Spills Right Away

Even though engineered stone like quartz can resist stains much more than more porous materials like marble, you should still not allow any messes to sit there for too long. Allowing stains to set can permanently damage your countertops, regardless of what substance was spilled. As soon as the spill happens, clean the spill with a mix of mild soap and warm water. Work extra quickly if the stain is coffee, wine, or tea, as these tend to permanently stain more quickly than other liquids.

Always Use a Cutting Board

Quartz is designed to be scratch-resistant, but it’s not entirely indestructible. When cutting something with a sharp knife, never cut directly onto your quartz countertop. Be sure to use a cutting board or another protective layer in order to avoid scratching and permanently damaging your quartz countertop. Using a cutting board also helps preserve your knives and keeps them from dulling quickly. 

Deep Clean After the Festivities

After all of the festivities are over and the hosting has been done, take the time to thoroughly clean your countertops. This will help ensure that no residue or liquids stay on your countertop and cause permanent damage. When cleaning your quartz, avoid abrasive cleaners and scouring pads. Instead, use a mild detergent and a soft rag. Abrasive cleaners and harsh chemicals can disintegrate the bonds between the quartz and the resin and eventually damage the quartz surface. Mild soap and water are all it takes to clean your low-maintenance quartz kitchen counters.

When you’re in the midst of holiday fun, the last thing you want to worry about is the status of your stone countertop. That’s why Dallas residents love Best Cheer Stone quartz products; their durability makes them an excellent option for areas that receive heavy foot traffic, and they remain beautiful and elegant with little maintenance.

If you’re considering a luxurious and affordable prefab stone countertop for your next renovation, keep in mind this comprehensive guide to prefabricated countertops. 

Stone Selection

The most crucial part of choosing a prefabricated countertop is choosing the stone material that gives you the look and maintenance level desired. Here at Best Cheer Stone, you can choose from granite, quartz, or marble prefab stone.

Granite is the most popular choice for prefab kitchen countertops. It comes in many unique colors and patterns due to its formation process, and each piece of granite is unique in its design. It adds a sophisticated and traditional look to any remodel, which is why it’s such a popular choice.

Quartz is another popular option for any room of the house. Quartz is favored for more contemporary design spaces due to its light coloring and more recent rise in popularity. Quartz countertops are extremely durable and waterproof since they’re engineered in our factories. This engineering results in a more controlled final product with superior quality to natural stone. This finely honed production process results in a versatile product that adds a luxurious finish to any room.

Marble is a less popular option due to its maintenance requirements, but new developments are allowing it to become more suitable for kitchen use. Our Namib Fantasy marble is an extremely innovative marble product that is one of very few marbles suitable for use as a kitchen countertop. Marble is an extremely luxurious choice, with a style that is associated with timeless sophistication and elegance. Choose engineered marble for enhanced durability and pattern consistency.

Finishes

There are three main finishes that we offer for our prefabricated selections: polished, honed, and leather. Polished is the most classic finish. It’s associated with elegance and style, and it offers a highly reflective finish. A polished countertop will create a ‘wow’ factor and is guaranteed to make your countertop the main focal point of any room. Beautiful and eye-catching, a polished finish brings out the richness of your countertop’s color as well. As the least porous finish, a polished countertop is also easier to clean than other options, reducing maintenance requirements.

Another finish option is the honed finish, also known as a matte finish. The honed finish is eye-catching in its uniqueness and deviation from the design norm. There’s no sheen or reflective quality to your stone at all, making it a popular choice for contemporary designs. A matte finish also tends to hide imperfections such as scratches and nicks better than reflective finishes. However, the honed finish is more porous and therefore more likely to absorb stains.

The final finish type, leather, will give your stone countertop an ultra-natural look. It gives a textured finish with no reflect, similar to the honed finish. It’s great for rustic designs and contemporary homes. The leathered finishing process seals the pores in, so it’s hardwearing and stain-resistant more similarly to the polished finish. However, leather-finish stone materials need to be periodically cleaned with a microfiber cloth and appropriate cleaning agent in order to maintain its appearance.

Edge Detail

There are two primary edge detail types: bullnose and laminated flat edge. The bullnose edging gives the countertop a rounded edge. This softens any design, making it a timeless classic most commonly seen in traditional design schemes. The laminated flat edge is more often seen in contemporary designs due to its more harsh lines. It’s a simple, clean finish with a hard, chiseled edge. Depending on your renovated room’s design scheme, you may want to choose a prefabricated countertop option with one edge detail over another. Although it’s a small aspect of the countertop, it can drastically change the final look and tone.

Prefab countertops are an excellent way to save significant time and money during the renovation process while still receiving a luxurious and stylish end result.
