Bathroom Vanities take Center Stage in a Bathroom Remodel

Bathroom Vanities are the focal point of today’s bathroom. They have become the center piece for a successful bathroom remodel, and let’s not forget that functionally, we do need somewhere to store our extra rolls of toilet paper. We’re seeing a number of design trends in the bathroom that you’ll want to consider when remodeling or building new.

Furniture in the Bathroom
One design trend that we’ve seen for a while is bathroom vanities that look like pieces of furniture. We’re seeing smaller designs for powder rooms and larger vanities for master bathrooms. In fact, one large bathroom vanity with a sink on either side is becoming popular for couples who share the space. For older homes, a darker stained wood works well with a light Granite vanity countertop.

Freestanding Cabinetry
Sometimes the double vanity just looks too bulky in the bathroom. Instead, try two pedestal sinks, for “his and hers”, with a freestanding bathroom vanity in the middle. We’re seeing quartz bathroom countertops used more and more in this design due to the wide array of colors now available.

Escape to the Bathroom
Today’s homeowner wants the look and feel of a spa at home. Turning bathrooms into “spa retreats” is one of today’s most popular home remodeling projects. Bathrooms are getting bigger, separate showers and bathtubs are being added, and different materials such as wood, quartz, and granite are being used in artful combinations as bathroom vanity countertops.

Parade of Color
We’re still seeing white as the most popular fixture color, but choosing to add a colorful bathroom vanity can really breathe some life into a dull, dreary space. A new bathroom vanity can be added quickly and with a minimal investment, but the effects can be dramatic. The new color palettes being offered in granite, acrylic solid surfaces, and quartz are offering choices to today’s consumer that weren’t available ten years ago. From natural colors to blues and red, color sets the mood and adds personality to your bathroom space.

Varity of Textures
Different textures are being brought into the bathroom. Designers are taking inspiration from nature and combining various elements into artful forms of expression in the bathroom. Stone, granite, glass, acrylic, and quartz are being used to soften hard edges and complement the wood being used in the bathroom cabinetry.

Electronics and High Tech
Forget the shower radio, today’s bathrooms are high tech all the way. Flat screen TV’s and stereo sound systems are being found in more and more of today’s bathroom remodels. Smaller TVs and DVD players are being cleverly built into the bathroom vanity.

Consider asking a design specialist from CIA Countertops exactly how you can pull some of these elements into your bathroom remodel. They’ll even tell you how you can get a free bathroom vanity countertop if you purchase kitchen countertops at the same time. Schedule your free consultation today.

Kitchen Cabinets: Options, Design and Installation

Replacing your kitchen cabinets can be a fun project, but also costly. If you’re thinking about replacing the cabinets on your own, then we invite you to read about some cabinet options, design and how-to install them yourself! Check it out.

Kitchen cabinets are not only functional, serving the purpose of storage, but also set the tone and theme for your entire kitchen. One can never have too much storage in a kitchen. With only a certain amount of space to work with, planning for the number and sizes of cabinets will ensure you have enough storage. And, functional kitchen cabinets do not need to be dull, but are often stylish furniture pieces, too. Whether you refresh current kitchen cabinetry or install new cabinets, with so many styles and price ranges you will definitely have enough options to select from.

 

Kitchen Cabinet Options

Options for kitchen cabinets have become much more numerous over the past several years due to innovations in design and materials used. Today’s kitchen cabinet market offers you the open cabinet concept, glass front cabinet doors, slide-out shelving, easy-close doors and drawers, cabinets made specifically for dishes, spices, even small appliances. Handles can be mixed and matched, and lighting can be installed under, within, and behind depending upon the mood you want to set.

Kitchen cabinets are also made from a wide variety of materials. Hardwoods such as red oak, white oak, maple, cherry, pine, ash, birch, and hickory can be found. Frequently you will find wood/plywood/veneer cabinets that are cheaper than one hundred percent hardwood. Other options are laminates, thermofoil, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, and plywood – all of which are typically less expensive than hardwood cabinetry. If your budget is limited, do not over look scratch and dent cabinets. Or, if you want a commercial-style kitchen, try stainless steel or aluminum cabinets.

 

Kitchen Cabinet Design

Working with an experienced kitchen designer will provide you with a plan that gives you the most cabinet space in the size of the kitchen that you have. A designer will be able to take your kitchen cabinet wish list and create a design that maximizes storage as well as functionality. It is important to show and/or describe to the designer how you use your kitchen. For example, are you an experienced cook or someone who cooks occasionally? Do you entertain a lot in a kitchen/open area space? Will your kitchen countertops double as a breakfast bar? Also, let your designer know if you are going to be installing a different floor as floor height might impact the height of the cabinets you buy.

In addition, you need to have a sense of how much cabinet space you need for storage. Know what items you will be accessing on a daily basis as well as kitchen items that you want handy, but may not need to access so frequently. For example, dishes, glasses, mugs, silverware, pots, pans, etc. should be within easy reach. Small appliances such as blenders and bread making machines are kitchen items you may use occasionally, so storing these in the back of lower cabinets may be ideal. Selecting cabinets that go all the way up to the ceiling will provide you with additional storage space. These are all very important elements to consider prior to laying out your cabinetry.

If you want to visualize how your cabinets, countertops, floors, tile, and backsplashes may look, use our Kitchen Visualizer tool, it’s so much fun! You can mix and match your choice of colors so you can really get an idea of what your looking for in your new kitchen design. There are also several kitchen layouts to help you visualize in different perspectives.

Kitchen Cabinet Installation

Installing cabinets nowadays is much easier with today’s cabinet products than in the past. Before you even begin mounting cabinets on the wall, have a detailed plan with specific accurate measurements laid out in front of you. Double check to make sure that you left space for the refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, range hood, windows, and any other items that will be in the kitchen. If you are planning to have a kitchen island with storage, measure it plus the area that you will have to work around the island to make sure that you will have enough clearance to move about freely.

 

Installation Options

Professional kitchen remodelers that have years of experience building-out kitchens should give you the cleanest, best looking, most workable kitchen for your money. If you decide to go to with a professional, talk to at least three recent clients to make sure that they were pleased with the work they had done on their kitchens. If not, keep looking until you find the right professional for your project.

The other option is to do the kitchen cabinet installation your self. To do this successfully you will need accurate, detailed blueprints of your kitchen design, a measuring tape, pencil, stud finder, ladder, level, screws, shims, screwdriver(s), saw(s), and kitchen cabinets to start.

Complete all painting and installation of flooring, first, before you begin installing your kitchen cabinets. When you are ready to install the cabinets, use your stud finder to locate and mark the center of the studs with a pencil. Studs are usually 16 or 24 inches apart. Assemble the cabinets but leave the doors off. You will add the doors at the end of the installation. Dry fit your cabinets to determine where you will need to make cut outs for plumbing pipes and hookups, electrical outlets, the sink, and so on.

Drill along the stud line. Install the upper cabinets first before installing the lower cabinets. Make sure the cabinets are level before tightening screws. Place shims under the lower cabinets if needed to level them out. Screw cabinets to the wall with a hand or electric screwdriver. If the cabinets are heavy, you may need to install a stringer (extra wood) on the wall first, then screw the cabinets into the stringer.

If you are also installing a new counter top, make sure that you do a dry fit first to make sure that the counter top fits your space including the space for your sink. Follow the directions on how to install your counter top. This may involve caulking the countertop and applying grout if needed.

One of the last steps is to install the cabinet doors. You will need to adjust each door as needed to ensure that they open and close easily and they are secured to the cabinet. To add a bit of whimsy to your kitchen, change out the kitchen cabinet handles and knobs – feel free to mix and match them – you can even select handles and knobs with a similar theme and/or color. Install base boards last.

Purchasing and installing new cabinets can be expensive. You can save money by refinishing kitchen cabinet doors, replacing the handles and knobs, even removing the middle of the cabinet doors and replace them with clear or frosted glass. New and updated kitchens can be expensive, but do provide a good return on investment. For example, a $20,000 kitchen remodel returns 73% on average. This is for a 200 square foot kitchen with about 30 linear feet of wood cabinets, laminate countertops, and a double stainless steel sink. New appliances, flooring, painting, and custom lighting adds to your ROI.

Fabrication and Installation of Countertops since 1987

You’ve probably been thinking about replacing your kitchen countertops for a while now, or maybe just started to consider a possible replacement. Either way we invite you to come learn more about Counter Intelligence. We’ve been fabricating countertops since the beginning, back in 1987! Yes, it’s been a while.

We’re here to help share our experience and knowledge on granite countertops with home owners, and to provide our customers with the highest level of experience in purchasing granite countertops in Maryland.

Our focus and process consists of a simple breakdown; highest natural stone quality, outstanding customer service and support, sophisticated measuring equipment, innovative fabrication processes & systems, and highly trained countertop installation professionals.

Recently I completed my kitchen renovation with the purchase of granite countertops. I made the purchase through Home Depot who informed me that Counter Intelligence would be the fabricator and installer. After reviewing comments online, I have to admit that I was a bit concerned . The negative ones were not recent, though, and complaints mentioned had more to do with poor customer service than with the actual installation itself. I went forward anyway and after getting in contact with the Project Manager, Stephanie, I knew that customer service would not be an issue. She kept in touch with me constantly and was extremely supportive and promptly addressed any concerns that I had. As a widow, it was difficult at times to navigate through the process alone so she was very helpful in this regard.

I also give kudos to the fabricator who did a perfect job on the granite and to the team of Wayne and Luis, the installers who did an awesome job. I am more than satisfied with Counter Intelligence and so pleased that I stuck with them. The installation is now complete and it proved to be a truly positive experience. I would not hesitate to recommend your company should I have the opportunity to do so in the future.

Have you been thinking about remodeling your kitchen? We understand howdifficult it is to find a reputable company or contractor to perform the work accuratley, effectively in a timely manner… without causing you major headaches right?

Before we start telling you about what we can do for you, why don’t you allow us to tell you a little about our company, how does that sound? Great!

Well, we’ve been around since 1987. Long time, I know. In fact feel free to read more about company history. We started back in the days fabricating laminate kitchen countertops and solid wood cabinets. We then adopted corian which is a solid surface material also used for countertops. Then we found Silestone, in fact we were one of the first kitchen remodeling companies to adopt and fabricate Silestone. Side note if I may, we actually won this years “Fabricator of the Year Award” issued by Cosentino USA on January 22nd, 2014. This is a great accomplishment for us.

Anyways, where was I… oh yes, so then we started fabricating granite countertops and because we had the team, experience and exact skills, we started remodeling entire kitchens! Yeap we’ve done hundreds of them by now, and we currently remodel 20 to 25 kitchen every month. So you see, we have the right experience, skills and team to perform a successful remodel of your kitchen.

One of the interesting things about our company is that we are a single source. What this means is that we DO NOT outsource any of our work to sub-contractors or anything of the sort. We have our own plumbers, carpenters, electricians, fabricators, installers, designers, project managers, etc. This translates into three key aspects for you as a consumer – quality, savings, and pease of mind.

We’ve put smiles on over 50,000 home owners around the Northern Virginia areas. We receive compliments all the time and our brand is recognized throughout the washingtong DC Metropolitan areas. I hope that helps you understand a little about who we are as a company. For regular updates please visit our Facebook page.

Take a look at the following review we recieved. We receive customer testimonials like this all the time, and we post them (with their permission of course) to our website as soons as possible.

The quality of the product is excellent. Although there were some misunderstandings between the installers and us during the installation, it finally ended up a good outcome. We would like to give special thanks to Amanda Hubak who expedited the whole process so that our kitchen could complete on time.

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME

kitchen remodeling costs VirginiaSo, you want to sell the house? Then I’m sure you want the next home owner to absolutely fall in love with the house. Well, let me tell you that the first place the “wife” will be looking at (and paying extreme attention to) is going to be the kitchen, and second thing will be the bathroom – or bathrooms – in the house. I can assure you that.

So why not raise the value of the house by remodeling the kitchen? Also, depending on the condition, you may want to think about replacing the bathroom or at least give your powder room a boost. I bring this up again, because remember, that in “most” cases, it is the wife that is purchasing the house, not the husband (trust me… I know from experience here!).

You can get a huge return on your investment by really selling the kitchen (remember that wife?) as the one place where the entire family can come together. The kitchen is the hub for any family. Most people buy homes – not houses – remember that.

Bottom line is, if you are looking for a reputable kitchen remodeling company in Virginia, then you are in the right place. We are genuinely here to help with any questions or concerns, and able to provide a free kitchen remodel estimate in the comfort of your home. Give us a call.

Granite Countertops Virginia

Fabrication and Installation of Countertops since 1987

You’ve probably been thinking about replacing your kitchen countertops for a while now, or maybe just started to consider a possible replacement. Either way we invite you to come learn more about Counter Intelligence. We’ve been fabricating countertops since the beginning, back in 1987! Yes, it’s been a while.

We’re here to help share our experience and knowledge on granite countertops with home owners, and to provide our customers with the highest level of experience in purchasing granite countertops in Virginia.

Our focus and process consists of a simple breakdown; highest natural stone quality, outstanding customer service and support, sophisticated measuring equipment, innovative fabrication processes & systems, and highly trained countertop installation professionals.

Recently I completed my kitchen renovation with the purchase of granite countertops. I made the purchase through Home Depot who informed me that Counter Intelligence would be the fabricator and installer. After reviewing comments online, I have to admit that I was a bit concerned . The negative ones were not recent, though, and complaints mentioned had more to do with poor customer service than with the actual installation itself. I went forward anyway and after getting in contact with the Project Manager, Stephanie, I knew that customer service would not be an issue. She kept in touch with me constantly and was extremely supportive and promptly addressed any concerns that I had. As a widow, it was difficult at times to navigate through the process alone so she was very helpful in this regard.

I also give kudos to the fabricator who did a perfect job on the granite and to the team of Wayne and Luis, the installers who did an awesome job. I am more than satisfied with Counter Intelligence and so pleased that I stuck with them. The installation is now complete and it proved to be a truly positive experience. I would not hesitate to recommend your company should I have the opportunity to do so in the future.

Milano Granite Countertops Add Beauty & Durability to your Home

From deep within the earth, granite was formed from billions of years of volcanic molten magma heating and cooling. The result is fabulous granite slabs in a variety of beautiful colors and patterns, as only Mother Nature could deliver. Now Counter Intelligence brings you Milano Select Natural Stones. Milano takes this perfect natural stone from the earth and makes it even better.

Milano offers only first quality granite to its customers. Each slab of granite is hand picked from quarries around the globe by experts in the industry. You’ll never get a second or commercial quality grade of stone with Milano.

All granite countertops have a character all their own. Each slab of granite is unique in color and color pattern. This makes your kitchen countertops or bathroom vanities a one of kind design element that only your house will have. Granite does contain pits and fissures. These are natural occurrences in the stone and they are filled in with resins that increase the strength and improve the appearance. Milano offers only first quality materials in 38 granite color choices and 11 granite edge choices. The design possibilities are endless.

Granite is naturally a porous stone, which means it can be susceptible to stains. But MilanoStone with IntelliGuard is a new treatment that will prevent spills and liquids from penetrating into your countertops. This unique process allows your granite tops to continue to breathe, unlike common sealers, which clog the porous surface of the stone. IntelliGuard actually changes the surface tension of granite countertops and vanities. Any spills on your granite bead up and can be wiped away with ease. You must clean up a spill within 12 hours to make sure that no staining occurs.

Daily cleaning is a breeze. Just use a dish soap like Ivory or another ph neutral brand mixed with warm water to wipe off your granite countertops. It’s that easy with MilanoStone IntelliGuard treated granite.

Milano stands behind their Intelliguard treatment process with a 15-Year Warranty. The beauty of natural granite is now combined with the ease of care of more expensive specialty countertop products.

Ask your CI Countertop design specialist today about how Milano granite countertops and granite bathroom vanities can be used to add value and beauty to your home.

What our customers are saying

January 16, 2014 Benjamin C.

The quality of the product is excellent. Although there were some misunderstandings between the installers and us during the installation, it finally ended up a good outcome. We would like to give special thanks to Amanda Hubak who expedited the whole process so that our kitchen could complete on time.


January 15, 2014 Peggy T.

You folks are amazing!

Yes, truly amazing! You installed our countertops about five years ago… black granite with a white/multi-color island…a total of over 45 square feet of beauty. The black countertops with the contrasting island took plain white cabinets (with black hardware) into another dimension. Everyone who sees our kitchen for the first time just says what a beautiful place. Thank you for making my vision a reality.

PS Your countertop cleaner is the only one I’ve found that doesn’t leave streaks…with a wide expanse of black granite that’s really important to me. I’ve just ordered another three cans.


January 14, 2014 Dana N.

Dear Stephanie,

The installation was done, the guys were wonderful, very professional and courteous! And I absolutely LOVE my countertop…. It is perfect! Thank you so much for your help with everything! Have a very happy and healthy New Year!

Best regards!

Dana

Quella was excellent, far exceeding my expectations. She was very responsive to any and all of my questions and always very professional.

Reply: First review of the year! Glad to know it was a positive one 🙂 Thank you Bruce, we’ll be sure to let Quella and the rest of the team know. Happy 2014 and best wishes to you and your family.

Many thanks to all for helping to make this project such a success.

Counter Intelligence,
I wanted to thank you for my beautiful quartz counter which was installed four months ago. I have a new Kitchen and I have to say the counters are the focal point. The counters have impressed all who have seen them and they are what makes my Kitchen spectacular. I am more and more impressed by the wonderful job you did as I enjoy them more each day. I have seen many granite and quartz counters with visible seams and imperfections but mine have none – they are perfect!!! The installers were so polite, clean and professional. The price was also much better than the “big box” stores. I can’t thank you enough!


December 23, 2013 Sandra T.

Good Day Mr. Barnhart:

I would be remissed if I did not let you know that you have a ‘gem’ of an employee in Stephanie!
From the time Stephanie left me a message to try and set up templating at the end of October / early November, until the actual installation, I felt confident that things would work out. Amid the fact that we had to change templating dates several times; couldn’t get Home Depot to get the last cabinet to me or, to give Stephanie the final P.O. in a timely manner – she worked with me.
I know that Stephanie has many customers, but regardless of the masses, I always felt as if I were the only customer. Because of her help, my Christmas Dinner will be ‘merry’.
From the bottom of my heart – I had to say thanks for the excellent service, my beautiful counter top and especially thanks for the wonderful, very personable, very efficient Project Manager named Stephanie L.!
Sincerely,

Reply: Hello Sandra, thank you so much for this message. This means a lot to our team. We’ve said this before, but we love hearing from our customers. We share these messages and stories with everyone in the company as the whole team is part of making things happen. They deserve it. Thank you again Sandra for your wonderful and sincere words.
Sincerely, the Counter Intelligence team

December 5, 2013 Elizabeth L.

Great job on the installation!
The leader installer was a bit rude though I do not think he was intentionally being this way. He began the day by laying into me about the necessity of providing a correct phone number as he had been calling my land line where my mother-in-law was babysitting my son versus my cell phone, which I had at the rental property. He then went on to say he had to take pictures of everything so if I accused him of wrong doing, he would have proof that he was not at fault. I actually understood why he was taking photos and never commented upon it. His comments were on his own accord and were stated in a way that were rather offensive. Otherwise, he was pleasant and did a good job. No issues with actual install.
The plumber was very pleasant and also did an excellent job.

Reply: Hi Elizabeth, thank you for your comments, we absolutely love hearing from our customers! This issue has been addressed with the installer.
Thanks again and have a great week!
Sincerely, the Counter Intelligence team

November 15, 2013 Linda P.

Good morning, Betsy!,

Many thanks for all your help coordinating. 🙂

November 7, 2013 Eileen P.

Hi Jemelle,

I want to let you know that I am extremely pleased with the new countertop and especially the installation process. The two gentlemen who installed were professional and knew their work! They were extremely pleasant, protective of my home and did extra touches to make my kitchen complete — beyond what I would have expected from the installation.

Please know that your company should be very proud of the quality and professionalism of your installation team.

My whole experience with Counter Intelligence has been easy and pleasant. Thank you for your great customer service!

Sincerely,

Reply: Hello Eileen, your comments feel so genuine and honest, please know that we truly appreciate that. Our team works very hard to earn our customers trust and we’re glad to hear from you guys. Thank you 😉
Sincerely, the Counter Intelligence team

From start to finish, Counter Intelligence was excellent with my counter-top purchases from Home Depot. My contact at the company, Quella H., was an absolute pleasure to deal with. And when I realized a small island piece was cut too wide, after installation; Counter Intelligence re-cut the piece for me, free of charge and turned it around very quickly. The techs that came to the house were fantastic to deal with as well. I would recommend Counter Intelligence for their customer service and excellent and quick turnaround.


November 3, 2013 Tim T.

I am the owner of McLaughlin Painting and Decorating and we had two bathrooms that we were remodeling in the same house in Rockville, Md. Solomon B. handled the project extremely well from measure to installation. The project was flawless and the 2 installers did a great job on the installation. We are very pleased with Counter Intelligence and will not hesitate to use them in the future.


November 1, 2013 Job #619***

We love our counters and the price was reasonable. Solomon Bernstein was very responsive to all questions and quick to offer to help. The showroom in Silver Spring turned out not to have in stock the granite we chose and we had to provide and stain our own trimming finish (which it turned out we didn’t need), so the process was somewhat more complicated than we hoped), but we’re very pleased with the result.


November 1, 2013 Ellen M J.

I went to Counter Intelligence for my new bathroom countertops because we had such a positive experience with them on our kitchen counters. I had only a color in my mind when we approached Mr Bernstein.. he helped me select the perfect counter for our bathrooms, then he worked closely with our contractor to perfectly install the colorful new counters. We are very, very pleased and will make Counter Intelligence our first stop when we do our kitchen renovation in the future.


October 30, 2013 Barbara B.

Hi, Betsy,
You probably know that the first set of kitchen countertops was installed today. All I can say is “Wow!” I expected a lot, but they exceed all my expectations.

In addition to thanking you, I owe a big “thank you” to two people in Silver Spring who helped with the selection. Chase Barnes (an easy name for me to remember) identified the countertop in the Kraftmaid brochure picture I’m using as my model as Alpina White (which I never would have gotten.) A young lady there whose name I didn’t get for sure (it was something like “Soi” or Shoi) helped with all the other selections from the wood, paint, and tile samples I had. I am color challenged and am always tense when I have to pick a color for something that’s going to last a long time. She was so good at what I’m so bad at, and the choices she guided me to just couldn’t have worked out better.

Greg tells me the two remaining measurements will be taken Friday. These are the “L” part of the kitchen and the Butler’s Pantry.

To confirm/update what we discussed before:
The “L” (whose sides are 15+’ by approx 54″) is to be Lyra ; double radius edge; no backsplash.
The Butler’s Pantry (about 45″) is to be Alpina White; double ogee edge; 4″ backsplash on all three sides.

Thank you so much.

Dear Mr. Harding:
Thank you for the excellent job your team : Mike D. and Devin did installing my new countertop and sink at Forest Hill, Maryland. Such attention to detail, meticulous care and level of expertise the team demonstrated was a pleasure to experience, especially with this type of investment. The jobsite was thoroughly cleaned and the countertop left shining brightly. Please thank both of them for me.
Sincerely

Hello Mr. and Mrs. Reading, I would answer all your questions in order… Yes they were very professional from the day one. Yes my house was cleaned every evening. They are good at planning, exceeded my expectations in terms of moving my project date earlier to fit my needs and worked right on schedule. everything was done on time as promised. The kitchen cabinets were delivered directly to my home, I had done my own research about cabinet company. Its Waypoint cabinets manufactured locally in Winchester. They are high end quality cabinets and company is good to work with as far as customer service concern. I like to support local vendors and USA made products. I am really pleased with the function and quality of cabinets.
Nothing was damaged during installation, my kitchen remodeling was finished in less than two weeks, start to functional kitchen. Cabinets removed first day, new cabinets installed in next two days. Then they measured for granite countertops, and counters installed after two days along with dishwasher and gas stove. (I used this time to have my vinyl floor installed) then backsplash was measured and installed in a day.
There was one drawer next to my range which could not open all the way because of my stove’s design. I upgraded my range from standard (4 burners) to 5 burner which has a bulging handle that prevented the drawer from opening. I was willing to keep it and open only half way but Jason was determined to fix it. He came up with an idea of a smaller face plate which has modified the cosmetic look in the corner but its very minor and worth to have a functional space.
In my opinion, Jason is a fair, reasonable and very honest to his work. He is always prompt in responding to your calls. I had some other estimates from other vendors but I am glad I went with counter intelligence. I will strongly recommend you guys for any project.
If you live in Centreville Virginia area you are welcome to come take a look at my kitchen as I work out of my home. Feel free to call me if can be of any help. My number is (703) ***-**** Good Luck! I know you will be happy if you choose to go with Counter Intelligence. Snehali F.

Dear Brian,

I am enjoying my new kitchen that was completed in six days. I want to commend you on your crew especially Paul and Sean who were the most considerate and professional workers I have encountered. They were prepared for work everyday on my kitchen utilizing all their skills in getting the project completed on schedule. When they encountered a problem with the renovations, they found a solution quickly and efficiently. Paul and Sean are a good team and I found that they were diligent and meticulous. I appreciated their combined efforts to make my kitchen remodel a success. Also, a special thanks to Kris Kadance for the design of my new kitchen and his patience with understanding the nuances of the remodel.

The second crew arrived on the project to install my new Silestone countertops and again was very pleased with their precision and meticulous care to install the new countertops.
The plumber, José Campos was very neat and efficient in installing the sink, faucet and water line.

My special thanks to you for insuring that my kitchen remodel was completed timely and for your patience in understanding the details for a fabulous new kitchen.

Sincerely, Rosemary A.

Kitchen Ideas: Ways to Refresh the Most Used Room in Your Home

Keeping your kitchen updated and fresh not only makes cooking and chatting with family and friends enjoyable, it also adds return on investment should you ever decide to sell your home.

Adding some trends to your cooking area can provide some culinary inspiration, while refreshing common appliances can take your kitchen to a whole new level. Kitchen ideas are numerous, so there is no time like the present to start browsing, selecting, and installing and/or changing your kitchen so that it has a whole new look!

“Green” Kitchen Cabinets

Current kitchen trends are focusing on natural, Earth-friendly materials. Natural wood stains and open shelving options are quite popular as are all white kitchen cabinets. If you are very concerned about installing “green” cabinets, look for the Environmental Stewardship Program seal on the product and/or ask the manufacturer or distributor to see if they are participating in the program. The seal indicates that specific “green” standards, such as manufacturing practices and using recycled materials, are being followed. There are only 22 manufacturers in the United States who have received this certification. Environmentally friendly cabinets are just as functional and sturdy as traditional hardwood cabinets and home buyers look for the use of these products when purchasing a home in today’s market.

High Tech/Multi-Functional

High tech appliances that are multi-functional continue to make a grand appearance in kitchens. Siemen’s has a multimedia ventilation hood. There are refrigerators with high definition TV’s, cable, DVD, and FM radio along with a weather display recessed on the refrigerator doors. Dishwashers are available in super colors including blue, gray, slate green, and others. Blue Star’s gas range comes in 190 colors. Appliances are also available in matte black, rubbed bronze, and glass. Appliance fronts that match cabinets so that they “disappear” are also popular. You will also see iPad docking stations that you can easily install under a kitchen cabinet for easy and safe use. Convenience is of prime importance in this trend.

Kitchen sinks have also become multi-functional. In addition to the kitchen sink being available in copper and with fashionable faucets, sinks are also serving several functions. A tempered glass preparation board, colander, drain train, as well as a pull out spray head faucet are all components of the Mythos sink system. Installing a kitchen sink properly so that it fits in the counter top correctly as well as does not leak may require you to consult a professional contractor or someone who has done this type of work successfully to help you install your new sink correctly.

Recycled Materials

In addition to kitchen cabinets, recycled materials continue to be on-trend in other areas of the kitchen. For example, a formaldehyde-free and food-safe bamboo butcher-block surface by Teragren is being used for counter tops and tabletops. Studio offers a wide-plank floating floor that uses TeraLoc — a self-locking system requiring no adhesive. Sustainable wood flooring, recycled countertops, and recycled tile for back splashes are all ways to incorporate recycled materials into your kitchen design.

More Kitchen Ideas

Other kitchen ideas that are making their appearance this year are wine coolers, lighting installed under counter tops that have an over hang, ready-to-hang back splashes, induction cook tops, unframed cook tops, and cook tops with no burners. Counter tops are expected to be either thinner or thicker than the traditional 1 ¼ inch or 1 ½ inch size, and black counter tops made from black granite or quartz are the preferred materials of choice.

You will also continue to see glass tile back splashes, personalized task lighting and white kitchens with a pop of color on one wall with an accent color throughout. Open floor plans are still popular. Those with an open floor plan with a kitchen/eating/living area should look to making sure that the look and feel of the kitchen extends into these other areas, otherwise the kitchen will appear cut off from the rest of the open space.

How ever you decide to update your kitchen – with new flooring, new appliances, new lighting, or new cabinets – do your research. Learn about the product, its level of quality; it’s usefulness in the kitchen. Talk to professionals. Read customer reviews. Take a look at the actual product in the store. Take photos. Measure it to make sure that it will fit in your kitchen. This way, in the end, you will be happier with the choices that you made to make your kitchen look fresh and new.

 

Granite Countertops New York

Fabrication and Installation of Countertops since 1987

Want to learn more about how our Founder John Murray first started fabricating countertops?


Receive *$250 off any kitchen countertop project of *40 square feet or more in New York


You’ve probably been thinking about replacing your kitchen countertops for a while now, or maybe just started to consider a possible replacement. Either way we invite you to come learn more about Counter Intelligence. We’ve been fabricating countertops since the beginning, back in 1987! Yes, it’s been a while.

We’re here to help share our experience and knowledge on granite countertops with home owners, and to provide our customers with the highest level of experience in purchasing granite countertops in New York.

Our focus and process consists of a simple breakdown; highest natural stone quality, outstanding customer service and support, sophisticated measuring equipment, innovative fabrication processes & systems, and highly trained countertop installation professionals.

Recently I completed my kitchen renovation with the purchase of granite countertops. I made the purchase through Home Depot who informed me that Counter Intelligence would be the fabricator and installer. After reviewing comments online, I have to admit that I was a bit concerned . The negative ones were not recent, though, and complaints mentioned had more to do with poor customer service than with the actual installation itself. I went forward anyway and after getting in contact with the Project Manager, Stephanie, I knew that customer service would not be an issue. She kept in touch with me constantly and was extremely supportive and promptly addressed any concerns that I had. As a widow, it was difficult at times to navigate through the process alone so she was very helpful in this regard.

I also give kudos to the fabricator who did a perfect job on the granite and to the team of Wayne and Luis, the installers who did an awesome job. I am more than satisfied with Counter Intelligence and so pleased that I stuck with them. The installation is now complete and it proved to be a truly positive experience. I would not hesitate to recommend your company should I have the opportunity to do so in the future.

Strength & Excellence that Last a Lifetime

Through superior strength, incredible beauty and an unparalleled distribution network, Silestone is rapidly becoming the surfacing choice for discerning consumers. Here are the top reasons why:

Natural Beauty

Silestone has the sophisticated elegance and timeless beauty of stone. The natural quartz in Silestone delivers a distinctive depth, brilliant clarity, glimmering radiance and cool, solid feel unique to natural stones.

Versatility

Silestone can be used in virtually any indoor surfacing application, including kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, tub and shower surrounds, backsplashes, floors, walls, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, fireplace surrounds,and more.

Widespread Availability

There is a reliable network of dedicated distributors who deliver Silestone and service customers throughout North America, including all metropolitan areas in the United States, several regions in Canada, and now even is expanding into Mexico and Puerto Rico. In North America, Silestone is available through approximately 3,500 retailers including all EXPO Design Center® stores, Home Depot® locations, as well as a variety of kitchen and bath retailers, cabinet shops, tile/flooring outlets, designers’ showrooms, architectural firms, builders, and more.

Scratch-Resistance

Only three other natural minerals -diamond, sapphire and topaz – are harder than quartz, making Silestone naturally scratch-resistant. Quartz is a seven in strength on Mohs Hardness Scale (diamond is a 10). So, while a careless slip of the knife will scratch most other countertops such as laminates and some granites, it won’t leave a mark on Silestone. Silestone is not scratch-proof, however, and can therefore be damaged with excessive force or pressure.

Stain-Resistance

Silestone’s polished surface is non-porous and thus highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup, and many other common household products. Unlike granite, Silestone does not need to be sealed to keep its lustrous shine.

Heat Resistance

Unlike solid surfaces and laminates, Silestone is heat- and scorch-resistant. It will withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching. The fire of a lit match will not mar the Silestone countertop. However, as advised by crockpot and electric skillet manufacturers, do not place these items directly on any countertop. Always use trivets when placing hot items on a Silestone surface to avoid thermal shock.

Strength

Silestone has four times the flexural strength of granite, making it less susceptible to chipping and cracking than granite during transportation and installation.

Maintenance-Free

Because it is non-porous, Silestone’s polished surface doesn’t need to be sealed. Granite, marble and limestone, on the other hand, must be sealed on installation and resealed regularly to prevent staining. Cleaning Silestone is easy with soapy water or a mild household cleaner such as Formula 409®, Fantastik® or Windex®. No surface is indestructible, though. As with any other stone or surface, strong chemicals and solvents such as Drano®, Liquid Plummer®, oven cleaners and floor strippers will damage the surface and must not be used on Silestone.

Color

Silestone is available in over 42 dazzling colors, ensuring that there is a Silestone color to suit most any style or taste. Cosentino continues to grow its Silestone color palette every year. Because Silestone natural quartz delivers more color consistency than any other natural stone, homeowners can be confident when using samples to choose their Silestone countertop color.

Experience

Counter Intelligence is backed by Cosentino and its more than 70 years in the natural stone industry. Furthermore, Silestone is fabricated and installed by dedicated certified craftsmen who were trained by Cosentino through a unique curriculum that includes expert hands-on training.

Granite Colors

With literally thousands of different granite slabs in our warehouse displaying some of nature’s best art work, you are certain to find that precise color for your granite countertops. The final phase to take place in your kitchen remodeling are your granite countertops, and we help make sure it carries a perfect and well balanced combination of colors to match your cabinets, floors, and overall appearance.

Below you will find some of the most popular colors used for granite countertops, but we invite you to come out to our kitchen design showroom or one of our warehouses to look over hundreds of other alternatives you can choose from. We are constantly adding more colors to our online gallery, but if there is a particular color you want and do not see here, please call (301) 589-5321 and a team member will be glad to help you find it.

Heard About Dekton Countertops?

What is Dekton?

According to the Cosentino official website, Dekton is a sophisticated blend of the raw materials used to produce the very latest in glass and porcelain as well as the highest quality quartz work surfaces. Let’s start by showing you an interesting video in which they submit Dekton countertops to several performance tests…

Discover Dekton

Imagine if you could combine the best attributes of all your favorite surface materials – both natural and engineered – what would it look like? What would you call it? What would be its strengths and weaknesses?

Cosentino took a similar approach several years ago when it decided to reinvent the manmade surface material. The idea of bringing different characteristics and features into one type of surface was a delicate process of innovation, and they called it Dekton.

Dekton merely imitates and substitutes a process in which Mother Nature takes thousands or even millions of years to produce. This is only accomplished by the use of proprietary technology as well as a state of the art facility built exclusively for the fabrication of Dekton.

Interior & Exterior Use

Dekton has unrivaled aesthetics and innovative features that make it a product of choice for use in both interior and exterior projects, contributing an extensive palette of Dekton colors. Its superior characteristics provide an exceptional resistance to UV rays which help maintain the color consistency if used in applications outdoors. These unique characteristics also provide resistance and brilliant performance when used indoors, perhaps in a kitchen, bathroom or even floors, in both residential and commercial environments.

What does a complete Dekton Kitchen look like?

We recently finished a complete kitchen renovation where the customer chose Dekton countertops for her entire kitchen, and guess what? It’s beautiful. As they say; “pictures are worth a thousand words”, so we took several photos of this particular project to show you the level of innovation and elegance that Dekton brings to a kitchen. Hopefully we captured it.

Silestone Care & Maintenance

Silestone® is virtually maintenance-free. It does not need to be sealed and cleaning is a cinch. Simply wipe the surface with soap and water on a regular basis to maintain its beauty and shine for years to come.

Difficult Spills

To remove difficult spills, soak the area for 10 minutes with a mild household cleaner (such as Formula 409®, Lysol®, or Windex®) then rinse and clean away with a soft cloth. Do not use any cleaners that contain abrasives as it will dull the surface of your polished Silestone. For stains that harden as they dry, such as food and gum, remove by gently scraping off of the surface (single edge razor blade) and then clean using warm water and soap.

Heat Protection

Silestone is resistant to heat and can withstand moderate temperatures for brief periods of time without being damaged. As with any natural stone, however, certain exposure to heat may cause cracks due to thermal shock. Always use a trivet to place hot items on Silestone. Do not use crock pots or electric skillets while in direct contact with Silestone natural quartz surfaces.

Harsh Chemicals to Avoid

The following will harm Silestone: Drano®, Liquid Plummer®, oven cleaners and floor strippers. Do NOT use these or any other harsh chemicals on your Silestone natural quartz surface.

Sunlight Exposure

Continuous long-term exposure to direct sunlight (UV rays) may result in slight discoloration of Silestone natural quartz surfaces.

General Precautions

To prolong the life of your knives, always use a cutting board. Natural quartz is one of the hardest minerals found in nature, making Silestone highly scratch-resistant. That same hardness may dull the sharpness of most knives.

Besides making your remodel affordable and hassle free, we bring the experience of tru industry proefessionals. We manufacture kitchen countertops for over 50 kitchens per month, and we renovate over 20 kitchens per month. We are NOT playing around people! (come on smile).

The truth is, we understand how hard it is for home owners like you to trust such a big costly project as a kitchen remodel to a complete stranger. This is one of the main reasons we offer to come out to your place at NO CHARGE, so that we can meet you in person and discuss your kitchen design ideas and help answer any questions you may have about your project.

We also have our very own certified kitchen designers and experts who are standing by to help plan and design the kitchen of your dreams.

Nothing was damaged during installation, my kitchen remodeling was finished in less than two weeks, start to functional kitchen. Cabinets removed first day, new cabinets installed in next two days. Then they measured for granite countertops, and counters installed after two days along with dishwasher and gas stove. (I used this time to have my vinyl floor installed) then backsplash was measured and installed in a day.

SAVE BIG!

It’s free, you have nothing to loose! Fill out the easy form to the right here and one of our team experts will help setup a time and date for us to come out and visit you. For the most part we are able to provide a free estimate in our first visit for kitchen remodeling in Maryland. So what are you waiting for?

We know you may have a crazy schedule with various family activities hapening all at the same time, and that’s why we come out when it is best for you. We adapt our schedule to yours.

Most kitchen design projects can be completed within a few weeks depending on the scope of the job of course. Kitchen cabinets sometimes can take a little longer to get delivered depending on the availability as well as the requirements for them. These are all things that we analyze in detail when we come out to provide an estimate. Our goal is to help you understand what exactly is involved in a kitchen remodeling project. We want to discuss ideas, design, layout, space, family activities, and all the things that matter most to you inside your home.

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME

So, you want to sell the house? Then I’m sure you want the next home owner to absolutely fall in love with the house. Well, let me tell you that the first place the “wife” will be looking at (and paying extreme attention to) is going to be the kitchen, and second thing will be the bathroom – or bathrooms – in the house. I can assure you that.

So why not raise the value of the house by remodeling the kitchen? Also, depending on the condition, you may want to think about replacing the bathroom or at least give your powder room a boost. I bring this up again, because remember, that in “most” cases, it is the wife that is purchasing the house, not the husband (trust me… I know from experience here!).

You can get a huge return on your investment by really selling the kitchen (remember that wife?) as the one place where the entire family can come together. The kitchen is the hub for any family. Most people buy homes – not houses – remember that.

Bottom line is, if you are looking for a reputable kitchen remodeling company in Maryland, then you are in the right place. We are genuinely here to help with any questions or concerns, and able to provide a free estimate in the comfort of your home. Give us a call.
