Finding uses for leftover granite and quartz selects is a smart way to avoid waste and optimize investment. Using countertop installation remnants tastefully adds value and enhances aesthetics. Explore creative ways to incorporate these leftovers, ensuring nothing goes unused. Tool these ideas to seamlessly integrate leftover slab material, enhancing functionality.

What Can Leftover Stone Selects Become?

Repurpose leftover stone into various projects such as windowsills or shelving. Create backsplashes of any shape, hearth or fireplace surround, and outdoor kitchen additions. Here are 5 creative ways to use your partial stone selects:

  1. Windowsills & Frames
  2. Shelving or Ledges
  3. Backsplashes of Any Shape
  4. Hearth or Fireplace Surround
  5. Outdoor Kitchen Aesthetics

1.) Windowsills & Frames

Natural stone or engineered stone windowsills and frames offer a unique touch and visual appeal. These materials (when sealed) provide durability in areas prone to water exposure, like kitchens and showers. Strategic placement of slab sills enhances design and practicality, withstanding water spillage. In large showers, quartz materials ensure waterproofing and can even accommodate small plants for a natural vibe.

2.) Shelving or Ledges

Remnants of quartz can be used for bathroom shelving or ledges to add practicality and sophistication. Incorporating these features behind the garden tub offers luxurious storage or display space. Similarly, in shower areas, employing slab materials for shelves or top caps enhances design and durability. Leftover pieces offer a blend of luxury and class in the bathroom.

3.) Backsplashes of Any Shape

Unique backsplash designs using irregular shapes can enrich the look of any space. Smaller pieces, such as 2 1/2” high splashes can integrate with the quartz or granite countertops and protect walls from damage. Curvy granite slab backsplashes can add elegance to wet bars, elevating appeal during gatherings. Don’t be afraid to get creative to transform your space into an extraordinary one.
