Let’s Take This Party Outdoors
When most people think about incorporating the sophistication and appeal of granite fixtures to their home, often that discussion starts and ends with the kitchen and bathroom. However, in Alberta one thing we know is that as soon as the warmer temperatures hit, after spending the winter cooped up inside, we are ready to get outdoors at every opportunity.
Creating an outdoor space for hosting has led to many re-imagining the look and function of their backyard deck. We’re evolving from just a barbecue as an outdoor cooking appliance and now seeking to create a space which provides both atmosphere and function for entertaining guests or even just spending quality time with loved ones.
Especially considering the extremes of the Canadian climate from minus forty degrees (before the wind chill) in winter to the thirty degree and higher days of summer, it is important to first consider a countertop that is going to stand up to the weather conditions as well as providing good function to meet your needs. Granite in Edmonton landscape design makes sense. An expertly installed stone countertop is largely impervious to the elements, providing year after year of ideal function.
Another great value is the opportunity to extend the attention to detail in the warmth and décor of your home’s interior into your outdoor living space, choosing complimentary tones for your granite, or creating a unique space all its own. We invite you to check out our wide variety of stone products and colors here in Edmonton for your granite design project to and let’s talk about the look and feel that you aspire to create.
