A Crash Course in Remnants

A remnant is what’s left of the quartz, marble or granite slab you picked for your countertops after the installation is complete. You might think that a remnant is unusable, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Whether it’s a remnant from your new countertops or a piece you’ve decided to purchase, there are many great uses for remnant pieces. If you have a small project, searching for a remnant could be a very affordable option.

Remnants may be smaller or have strange sizing, but the stone itself is as good as a full slab! If you’re looking to upgrade your home, remnants may be a good place to start looking. Here are six projects you can complete around your home with a quartz, granite, or marble remnants:

  • Upgrade your bathroom vanity. Quartz is very durable and less porous than other natural stones, so a quartz remnant would make a great choice for a small bathroom or half bath countertop.
  • Update your laundry room. Much like the bathroom vanity, your laundry room would be a great place to consider a quartz remnant as they are highly stain-resistant and can withstand chemicals in the laundry area.
  • Create a furniture top for a desk or coffee table. This is a perfect way to bring in some natural stone features to your living spaces at a reasonable price.
  • Create a cutting board, cheese board or coasters. Replace your boring wooden cutting board with a stylish remnant. Remnant marble and granite are perfect and more hygienic than wood. And these also make great gifts!
  • Use it for your kitchen backsplash. This would be a great way to update the look of your kitchen, while protecting the walls and making cleaning quick and easy.
  • Finally, don’t forget the fireplace! Granite and quartz remnants are great options for your fireplace. Not only do they retain heat, making your room feel warmer for longer, but they are also a great way to add value, and a focal point, to your home.

There are many creative ways you can use remnants. Whether you are trying to figure out how to use the offcuts of a piece of natural stone you’ve already purchased, or searching for a stone remnant for a specific project the ideas are endless.
