Slim and beautiful in Spokane – the trend for slimline granite countertops spokane (Washington, Washington, USA)

As the leading granite countertop supplier in Spokane, we notice that more of our residential and commercial customers are in line with a global trend, and asking us to install thinner granite surfaces.

Thickness Range

For decades, the traditional thickness for granite countertops has been on the opulent side, 2 to 3cm (0.75 to 1.25 inches). But in recent years the trend has been heading towards slimmer granite countertops in Spokane, whose residents want a more elegant look, with thicknesses going down to a chic and ultra-thin 1cm (0.4inches).

Thinner & Stronger

The thinnest granite countertops in our Spokane showroom are 1cm (0.4inch). These are backed with a tough layer of carbon-fiber composite which gives them a flex strength that is the same as a 3cm-thick granite slab, while being only a third of the weight.

Sleek, Trendy Looks

Traditional granite countertops spokane » found in traditional homes, restaurants, club-houses and hotels tend to feature larger thicknesses of granite. By contrast, thinner designs give a sleek, minimalist look. The result is a décor which has a sophisticated, urban appeal. This works for modern homes as well as trendy bars and nightclubs, plus Spokane’s cooler coffee shops, restaurants and hotels.

More Space

Thinner granite countertops create the impression of more space. This works well for our customers with smaller kitchens, apartments and public premises in Spokane, where granite countertops spokane » on the thinner side are a good look.

Lower Cost

The cost of a thinner granite countertop is lower because there is less material. Also, because less material is more lightweight, the transportation and handling costs to our granite countertop customers in and around Spokane are lower too. This price benefit of course plays well with customers with smaller properties.

More Versatile

Thinner sheets of granite enable you to do more with the material, like creating boxed-in features to cover a multitude of irregularities in the building structure. You can also be more ambitious when cladding vertical spaces like countertop splashbacks. Even whole walls right up to the ceiling can be cladded with ultra-thin granite, because it is cheaper and lighter plus being easier to move around and install.
