As an interior design trend, white is hot right now and is expected to be a top color choice for 2012. Thanks to its modern yet classic, clean look, surrounding yourself with a fresh, crisp white can give a room an entirely new, uplifting and soothing feel.
White kitchens and bathrooms can be finished with beautiful, timeless white colored stones, custom cut and installed by leading countertop fabricator Atlanta Kitchen. Cambria, a nonporous, elegant, functional and durable quartz, has close to 10 shades of white products like Whitehall, Torquay and Dovedale. Calacatta gold is a popular Italian marble that is perfect for bathroom vanities, flooring, tub and fireplace surrounds and end and coffee table tops. Read More→

We pride ourselves on our expansive indoor slab gallery and outdoor slab yard, which lets homeowners, designers and builders see the actual slab that will be in their homes prior to fabrication. We even let you lay templates over the material so you know precisely where the veins in a particular piece of granite will line up.
To give buyers even more choice, we’ve just expanded our slab gallery 35 percent to a full 20,000 feet. That means you can stroll the aisles of massive slabs, feeling the material and seeing its true color in an indoor environment. We’ve made way for even more exotic granite materials, the new Cambria Waterstone collection and even Vetrazzo recycled glass countertops.
We stock more than 3,000 slabs and 2,000 remnants at all times. Since we are also fabricators, it reduces the time needed to complete your project. We love to work with Atlanta designers, or you can come in and speak with one of ours to design your dream space.

White is popular design choice for its simplicity, peacefulness, endurance and the brightness that it can bring to space. And white Carrera marble is a classic, luxurious design element that gives a home a touch of elegance like no other stone can.
This stunning stone is pure white in color and has become a popular choice in upscale homes for its lasting style and memorable appearance; it is most often used in kitchens as backsplashes and for countertops, in bathrooms as vanity tops and in showers; and its light-reflecting qualities make for brilliant patios and flooring.
Carrera marble is one of the most internationally famous natural marble stones and has been used for centuries in homes, offices and other spaces. It conjures up impressions of ancient Italy, but is not only lasting in appearance, it is also durable. Read More→
