Your Granite Kitchen Counters Don’t Have to Be Rectangles

Most kitchen counters you see have straight edges, right?

That doesn’t have to be true for your new granite countertops. If you can dream it, we can (probably) make it. Your granite countertop ideas can become your new kitchen counters – in about a week!

The straight counters are, of course, easier.

The shaped ones are far more interesting.

In other words: ask.

You can always pick standard rectangles for your granite counters, or maybe just throw in a gentle curve on the bar counter, or the TV alcove counter.

    I had Toluca Granite install granite countertops in my two secondary bathrooms. The countertops were in the range of 38 – 42 inches. The cost of both bathrooms – removing the old countertops and faucets, and installing the granite counter with undermount sink, was $614. The key to this low price is choosing granite from their remnant yard.
    I worked with Lauren. She, and the other staff, couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. I visited the yard countless times looking over the remnant selections. Each time I was treated as if I was a large, expensive job. I chose my granite and had to delay the job for over a month, but Lauren was always helpful and accommodating.
    When I finally had the granite counters installed, the installers covered my floors and took the utmost care in protecting my home. I am getting ready to remodel my kitchen and master bath, and Toluca Granite is my only choice.
