In my last guest bathroom remodeling post, we installed Tarkett flooring and built the base for our countertop. Now, it is time to install the granite countertop and glass tile.
Ordering and Installing Granite Countertop
A couple weeks ago, we drove out to Medina, Ohio to Architectural Justice/ Justice & Company. They offer the largest selection of granite in NE Ohio. They offer more than 50,000 square feet of granite from around the world. I have been to other granite supply companies, none have come even close to the quantity or selection. Justice & Company offers an amazing selection of granite that can transform any living space into something stunning.
The hardest part was selecting which gorgeous piece of granite we wanted! The staff will help you along the way to ensure you select a piece that accommodates your room size, etc.After selecting our granite from the massive selection, we set an appointment for the space to be measured. Within a couple weeks, we had our granite installed by Justice and Company. I wasn’t home when it was installed. However, my husband said that it was installed in just 15 or 20 minutes. Wow! The process could not have been easier.
When I returned home, I was so excited. The piece we chose from Justice & Company is so beautiful. I love the details, variations, and colors found in the granite. It’s simply gorgeous. There is nothing ordinary about it. It sets the entire mood for our new guest bathroom. The Justice & Company granite transformed a tired, plain bathroom into a classy, elegant bathroom. That’s even without the sink and faucet yet!
Installing Glass Tile
My father-in-law is a professional Medina, Ohio general contractor, he knows not only how to do anything and everything related to building a home but he has a sense of style. He knows what will and won’t look good. He encouraged us to consider what would do the granite justice in our bathroom. He suggested adding glass tile that he and my mother-in-law (who is an amazing decorator) found at Lowe’s. We trusted their judgement and couldn’t be more pleased.
My father-in-law is such a generous person. He came out to set the glass tile for our bathroom. I was amazed that this tile wasn’t being installed with cement but with something that looked like a huge sticker. He was using a Tile Setting Mat. You simply cut it to the size you need for your tile. Remove 1 side of the adhesive and press on the wall. Then, remove the 2nd side. This leaves an extremely sticky adhesive for your tile. This is just fine for our application of tile behind the sink, as a rather large back splash kind of area. It is not the type of product to use for shower walls where it will be continually getting wet.
Isn’t it beautiful?! It took him a couple hours to set the tile, with lots of cuts on the tile saw along the way. Isn’t it beautiful? Next, he will add a thing piece of trim to match the shadow boxes he made out of cabinet wood. This will have to wait until his return to our home. I’m enjoying the look already. I can already see how this bathroom is going to be my favorite part of the house!
The combination of a granite countertop and the coordinating glass tiles compliments eachother. This is going to be one spectacular bathroom!
Thank you to Architectural Justice/ Justice & Company for the equitable exchange between our parent company Remarkable Team and Justice & Company for the granite reviewed.
