Tremendous Table Tops
When I was preparing my Ringwood home for sale I wanted to use a coffee table and a side table that were badly in need of some love to bring them into line with the way I was styling the living areas of the property.
At the time, Granite Transformations was updating my bathroom benchtops so I asked them if they had any offcuts we could use to replace the two tabletops.
The replacement process was pretty simple. With the side table, we removed the veneer from the timber substrate, painted the table, then the Granite Transformations team popped on the new, custom-sized Granite Transformations top to finish it off. The result has the appearance of a full marble table top, but we achieved it at a fraction of the price.
With the coffee table, we simply lifted out the glass tabletop and replaced it with another offcut from the bathroom bench top (put onto a thin substrate) which the Granite Transformations team sized perfectly to fit like a glove.
Cabinetry resurfacing isn’t just for giving your bathroom and kitchen a refreshed look. With a bit of lateral thinking you can reinvent the appearance of old faithful coffee tables, side tables TV units, or in fact any small piece of surfaced furniture in your living areas to reinvigorate the styling without having to invest in brand new pieces. Best of all, because Granite Transformations is non-porous you don’t have to worry about stray coffee cups and red wine glasses leaving permanent stains – the marble-look surfaces just wipe clean.
When it came time to prepare my Ringwood home for sale, the unique splash back I’d selected for the kitchen way back when I was looking to make a statement wasn’t going to work with not only the look I had selected but making it more streamline for sale. With the strong black I’d selected for my benchtops Island bench cabinetry and the new statement bar stools it was time for my splash back to take a step back, but I still wanted to integrate the colours of the moment to give it personality. So, I chose on-trend hexagonal tiles that infuse the kitchen with pattern and texture, while remaining stylish and elegant and not stealing the show.
The great thing about these Granite Transformations tiles is that they have minimal grout lines and the epoxy grout is not porous so it works perfectly as a kitchen splash back because grease and oil can’t permeate the surface of the grout (perfect for showers as well).
Paring back the look of a splash back doesn’t mean you can’t still make a feature of it. Using the range hood in my kitchen at night as feature lighting really brings out the texture and pattern of those hexagonal tiles and makes them a show-stopper.
