MARCH 26TH 2018

Having lived in Florida since 1991,  The Buchanan family decided to build their dream home earlier this year.  Building started in the Summer of 2017, but the Buchanan’s wanted to get a leg up on the building process by getting information about cabinets, appliances, and countertops beforehand.

“We had all of our Interior Colors picked out and put together a palette, so it was just a matter of finding a stone that matched and complemented the rest of the colors we chose.” Mrs. Buchanan said.

Knowing she wanted lighter cabinets, Mrs. Buchanan took that into consideration when thinking about the countertop color, leaning towards something gray or darker to contrast against the cabinetry she chose.  Mrs. Buchanan started the Countertop Buying Process, by first looking online where she stumbled upon Cambria.  From there, the Buchanan’s went to two granite shops before coming to International Granite and Stone.

“We were pleasantly surprised with your price, and we loved the International Granite and Stone Showroom in Odessa.  The showroom’s presentation is what won us over.  We even got some of our cabinet ideas from your setup.” Mr. Buchanan said.

From there, the Buchanan’s scheduled an In-Home Consultation, with IGS Designer Pedro M., to go over the scope of work in more detail, and to finalize what colors were going to go where.  Seeing as it was a new build project, The Kitchen, Bathrooms, and Laundry Rooms needed something for the surfaces.  The Buchanan’s also decided to add an Outdoor Kitchen as well.

For the Outdoor Kitchen, The Buchanan’s chose Baltic Brown Granite.  Granite is an ideal stone for Outdoor Kitchens because it doesn’t fade easily in the sun.  Mr. Buchanan designed the Outdoor Kitchen as his own personal cooking space because of his love of grilling out.  They use the grilling area about two to three times a week, and chose Baltic Brown for a more natural look to match the pavers and brick veneers. The Brick veneers are also featured inside in the Buchanan Living Room around the Fireplace.

Here at International Granite and Stone, Customer Satisfaction is key.  We want you to love your home even more than you already do after we install your custom countertops.  For over 16 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to establish a loyal client base in the Tampa Bay and Orlando Area.
