Onyx Countertops Houston
Are your kitchen and bathroom countertops in need of updating? Maybe you’ve had the same countertops for years and the wear and tear are getting to be too much. Updating usually means giving your countertops a more modern and sleek look. Naturally your first instinct will be to look at marble or granite countertops. Both of those natural stone materials are great and common options, but many people are starting to look at onyx countertops instead. Are onyx countertops in Houston right for you?
What is Onyx?
Onyx is formed from alternating color bands of chalcedony. It consists of fine bands of quartz and moganite, two silica minerals. Usually onyx can be found in caves and it formed by the drippings of stalactites and stalagmites. Onyx is usually used in small pieces of jewelry, making onyx countertops a rarity. If you’re looking for a very unique addition to the look of your Houston kitchen or bathroom, onyx countertop Houston installation is perfect for you. Onyx usually isn’t oriented in horizontal positioning, like in countertops, but it only adds to the uniqueness when used as countertops. The onyx material usually forms in swirling patterns in pastel shades.

Hiring the right company to install your new, unique onyx countertops can be difficult.

Once an inspection is completed, we know how much materials we’re going to need and how much labor there is actually going to be.
