Choosing the PERFECT Remnant: A How-To Guide

Choosing a granite or quartz remnant is a GREAT way to save money on the perfect piece for your small project. Here are some ideas for putting those remnants to use:

  • Bathroom Vanities
  • Small Kitchens, Islands, Bar Tops
  • Coffee Tables, Side Tables, Sofa Tables, Hallway Consoles
  • Laundry Rooms
  • Bar Carts, Grill Prep Tables

3-Step How-To Guide

Step 1 : Determine what size stone you need for your project

Remnants come in many different shapes and sizes, so having all your measurements on hand is important.

You may also want to snap some photos of the rest of the room where your remnant will eventually call home. This will help you pick the perfect colour and pattern from our yard!

Step 2 : Bring your measurements (and a measuring tape!) to our remnant yard in Strathroy

Our remnant yard is stocked with hundreds of granite & quartz stone odds and ends.

Remnants are what is left over from a full slab after the kitchen or bathroom countertop pieces are cut, so there are many different sizes and shapes. Sometimes you may even find multiple pieces of the same design which could work for larger projects. You’ll find classic, dark, dramatic, flowing, light, colourful and neutral stones in our yard, all waiting to be used for that small project.

Step 3 : Purchase your remnant (at HUGE savings!) & choose your edge design

Now that you’ve found the perfect stone for your project, you have one more decision to make:  what type of edge profile would you like?

This is where having photos of the surrounding décor can be helpful. An EASED edge is a popular choice for modern spaces, while a BEVEL is a more formal design for a classic kitchen or bath.

Once you’ve decided on an edge style, you’ll pay for your stone (at a fraction of the price of ordering a full slab) and your order is sent to our fabrication shop!
