    5 Things You Shouldn't Do When Caring for Quartz Countertops

    Quartz kitchen countertops are sturdy, available in eye-catching designs and come in a variety of colours. They are different from natural stone slabs as they are not mined but engineered in a factory. The major ingredient is quartz chips which are combined with polyester resins for binding and pigments for colour. Small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks can be added for different designs. The resins added contribute stain and scratch-resistant properties to quartz. The great range of colours and interesting looks make quartz countertops an extremely popular choice these days. At Bossio Stone Imports, you can choose from multiple brands offering quartz countertops in Edmonton. We also offer tiles and granite countertop installation.

    New Italian Porcelain Line

    We’ve just received a shipment from Saime Ceramica in Italy which included our much anticipated new porcelain tile – Volcano. We are stocking two of the most popular colours: Marrone and Bianco. Marrone is a taupe/grey shade in either matte or semi polished, and Bianco is a soft grey/white matte finish tile. This mid-priced 12 x 24″ tile is ideal for floors or walls. We have also brought in a random strip muretto as part of the Bianco line, which would make a beautiful backsplash or accent trim on the floor. Additionally, a 3/4″ wide x 23 1/4″ strip of Bianco with evenly spaced silver drops is available to add just a touch of sparkle to your project.
