Natural Stone Countertops
Stone tops can make any room that much more luxurious when applied to the right areas. Granite, marble, and quartz are all fantastic materials but its quartz that seems to be making the biggest comeback. Quartz is a very durable natural stone that has gained a tremendous amount of popularity lately, and is surprisingly affordable. Granite and Marble have a very distinctive look to them as well that fit for different scenarios. Luxury designers do great things with these materials and once you have a natural stone finish in your bathroom or kitchen, you’ll come to really appreciate the work.

Floating vanities make for a very clean, simplified look that allows for the sink in question to be elegant and functional. Luxury designers have been heavily favoring these as of late and this trend shows no signs of slowing down.
