You need 2 pieces on the top I think or even 4pieces. It seems you don't need a lot of mertatial, however since its curve you do need to cut from a big piece.
No way it can be done with tiles?

is there such thing as a grey-veined quartz slab - which can be applied to a kitchen backsplash? If so any ideas on approx cost?

yeah, but are these quartz or marble?

I have heard that using marble as backsplash is harder to clean in a kitchen frequently used - is that true?

What Is the best counter top for a rental property? Granite needs to be treated every year. If you leave water on it, it gets stain. Any alternative that will look good and low maintenance?

Looking to replace ensuite counter top 60x20 and kitchen counter top as well (don' know size). What do you recommend? Kitchen is being used daily, something is good with stain. How much? What other service is included? Thanks.

These pictures are perfectly what we want (same backsplash too).
Will you be able to recommend an installer, quartz brand and price?

Are there significant differences between known brands such as Ceasarstone / Cambria versus less popular brands such as Hanstone / Silestone?
My immediate thought is simply selection of colours/textures...
I assume most, if not all, North American made product is good as I've heard of growing numbers of cracking issues with China-made product.

For myself, I've ordered a new kitchen and they are a dealer of Cambria. I'm wondering if it makes sense to deal with another quartz dealer directly for some savings.
I'm looking for a white or white w/ subtle grey veining. Do you have a website or a showroom?

Those are quartz. Yeah marble probably is not harder to clean but need more frequent to clean

Ceasarstone, yes, is one of the best ones in the market, more beauty colors, better quality, and you can never go wrong with them. However, price maybe doubled compare to those Chinese brand. For those cheaper brand, the price performance ratio is much better, in fact the mojarity ppl go for these. For example, a BMW car is more expensive, some ppl choose it because they just want something luxury, however the majority just go Honda for a better value. It's always deal directly with fabcators, no third party involved. Winking FaceI don't think I can post my website or showroom here but I will pm you.
