Selecting the Countertop Edge

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

If you’ve had the pleasure of building a custom new kitchen, then you’ve been faced with the challenge of coordinating the counter, cabinet, flooring, and appliance details. One decision you have to make before you can order your countertops is selecting the countertop edge and backsplash. Ambassador Floor Company offers a wide range of countertop and backsplash styles and materials including marble, granite, quartz, recycled glass and exotic marble.

The most popular marble and granite edge profiles are half and full bull nose; quarter bevel; and radius top, cove, ogee and double ogee; chiseled and dupont. The selection of the countertop edge is primarily one of personal preference.

Read an informative houzz article highlighting countertop edge selection by writer Rebekah Zaveloff, entitled, “Kitchen Details: The Right Edge for Your Countertop”. Regarding the coordination of details in the kitchen design, the author writes, “Each kitchen has something that stands out and says “look at me.” Sometimes it’s the tile, sometimes it’s the lighting, and sometimes it’s the countertop material. I make it a rule to avoid having everything shout for attention; that way there’s some breathing room.”

The Ambassador Floor Company showroom is located at 17770 Chesterfield Airport Road, a quarter mile west of Long Road, in Chesterfield, Missouri. Please call the showroom at 636.728.1600 to schedule an appointment during or after hours.

Whether you have a natural stone backsplash or floor, you need to understand how to take care of your natural stone investment so that it can reward you and your home for many years to come. Here are 5 great tips from Ambassador Floor Company on keeping the natural stone in your home clean.

1. Use a clean, non-treated dry dust mop or broom to frequently mop and sweep natural stone floors.

2. For those hard to reach areas, use vacuum cleaner attachment.

3. Be preventative by using walk off mats and area rugs on both sides of exterior entrances to collect the loose dirt before it reaches your stone floor.

4. Make sure that the underside of the mat or rug has a non-slip surface.

5. Never use products that contain lemon juice, vinegar or other acids on marble, limestone or travertine.

Jazz up your Kitchen with a Backsplash

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, slider

The backsplash in your kitchen does a lot more than simply protecting the walls from grease and cooking splatter. Backsplashes are a wonderful way to jazz up your kitchen with an element of style that reflects your personality. If you are looking for a way to enhance the beauty of your kitchen without a full on kitchen renovation, adding a backsplash is a wonderful option.

There are many materials backsplashes can be made from like tile, granite, solid surface, etc. These are the less exciting options, however, if you are looking to have a backsplash installed that has more of a creative work of art touch, here are a few materials you’ll want to consider:

  • Granite
  • Marble
  • Ceramic or porcelain tile
  • Mosaic tiles
