Tile Backsplash Ideas for Showrooms

Posted on 23 February 2013 by cradmin

It’s not always possible to sell every customer on that full height granite or coved solid surface backsplash, no matter how hard one might try, which often makes tile the go-to product. And for tile countertops, a tile backsplash is only natural. Many types of tile also make a great option. Not only are there very durable, sanitary options available for this aspect of the countertop that generally doesn’t receive a lot of wear, but there are just a lot of tile options overall.

Tile comes in numerous textures, colors, materials and patterns. Plus, it can be laid in any number of unique ways that can really set off an otherwise hum-drum kitchen and bring a uniqueness that may not be there otherwise. There are even many choices available when it comes to the grout and groutlines that can help make for a one-of-a-kind kitchen.

As such, we ran across a nice video put out by Fireplaces & Granite, of North Carolina, that shows dozens of ideas on how to showcase tile backsplashes in different and inventive ways that might make the sale that much easier. Hopefully, you can gather some ideas that will benefit your own operation by giving it a view:

How Stainless Steel Countertops are Fabricated

It goes through the selection of material, cutting (shears), bending (press brake), welding of integral stainless steel sink (TIG welding), creation of the wooden substrate (very quick look), and then shows the final installation.

Compared to the process of making a solid surface or granite countertop, stainless steel countertop fabrication looks relatively simple. Let us know your thoughts…

Radianz Quartz Surfacing Fabrication Video

Posted on 10 October 2012 by cradmin

Here is an instructional video put out by Salvo Corp., a South African material distributor of Samsung Radianz quartz surfacing (in and of itself quite interesting). This 8-1/2 minute video covers quite a few topics, including material handling and storage, sawing, seaming, edge lamination, polishing, CNC sink cut-outs, radius requirements, and much more.

All in all, very interesting to watch. And we would love to hear if you notice differences between the procedures outlined here and what is happening in your location, or just your facility.

If there are related videos you have created or seen that you think we should post, let us know by emailing [email protected].
