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 Kitchen, The Buchanan’s chose Cambria Bellingham Quartz. Quartz is a great material to use due to the fact that it doesn’t absorb any liquids or moisture. It’s the perfect surface for cooking, preparing food, and entertaining friends. The Buchanan’s chose an Ogee Flat edge for the Kitchen, to jazz up the countertops. A Quartz Kitchen can vastly increase the value of your home. The color they chose matches the cabinetry flawlessly.
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.
