Add A Neutral Look To Your Kitchen With Some Altea Difiniti…



In this blog, I wanted to share a few photos of a “quartz” kitchen we recently fabricated and installed in Altea Difiniti. Altea is a very neutral color with warm shades of cream, tan and brown. It has a subtle pattern to it, making it popular choice for those looking for only slight variability, or more of a uniform-type look. Altea works well for a variety of decorating options, since it easily goes with many color schemes.

Let’s take a look at the kitchen…

If you are interested in this color, or would like to look at more “quartz” or other material options for your home, make sure you stop by our showroom today. We would be happy to help.

Thanks for reading!

Why Put Off Tomorrow What You Can Do Today?



We’ve all heard the saying, “Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today,” but how many of you really live by it? My guess is that while we all may have good intentions, we are all prone to procrastination at times… some more than others. Why, you may ask, is that? We are all complex human beings. Often times, our daily activities can seem overwhelming and get in the way of what we truly would like to accomplish. When this happens, our feelings often take over and can stop us from doing what we truly desire. So how can get around this? The answer is actually pretty simple…take one step at a time.

In fact, Brian Tracy, Professional Speaker, Best Selling Author, & Entrepreneur explains the concept with a metaphor. He asks, “‘How do you eat an elelphant?’ The answer is, ‘one bite at a time.’ This can be applied to any goal. You accomplish it one step, one task, one measure at a time. He also talks about eating your frog, which is about tackling your most important, daunting tasks, and getting them done. Brian’s main point is that you eat your most ugliest frog first, the next ugliest, and so on, until all your frogs are done. When you ‘eat your frog,’ you feel empowered, happier, energized and are more productive.”¹ Robert Emmons, in his book, Thanks, tells us “to go through the motions and do it now, and the feeling will come.” ² Have you ever felt overwhelmed by doing a task, but went ahead with it anyway and then felt a sense of relief after, even if you didn’t complete it? Brian Tracy explains this as “‘Slice and Dice.’ You can cut a big task down to size with the ‘Salami slice’ method. Basically you lay out the task in detail and resolve to just one slice of the job for the time being.”³

So what have you been putting off that you want to get done and what are you doing about it?

If the answer is remodeling, spring is the perfect time to get going on it!

When it comes to countertops for your project, we can help. We have hundreds of slabs to choose from. We carry a variety of natural material options including: granite, marble, soapstone, slate, quartzite, limestone, onyx and travertine. We also carry a variety of “quartz” products including: Silestone, Ceasarstone, Hanstone, Difiniti, Dupont Zodiaq, and Color Quartz. Make sure you stop by our showroom to view our full slabs.
