Does your business need to make an upgrade?
Whether you manage a restaurant or an office building, every business has a need for high-quality commercial countertops and cabinets. In a restaurant setting, granite or quartz countertops are the perfect, durable material for customers to eat on or for your team to prepare food on. Every workplace with some type of kitchen for employees can benefit from new cabinets that allow people to store food and essentials. Whether used by your customers, employees, or both, an upgraded kitchen in your commercial space can be an upgrade in both form and function.
If your existing counters are chipped, cracked, or stained, your customers will notice and may make inferences about your business and its upkeep. In many industries—but, particularly in the restaurant business—presentation and first impressions matter. If your tables and counters are starting to look dingy, we recommend upgrading to new stone surfaces.
Why have Superior install your commercial countertops and cabinets?

You’ve probably heard of kitchen pendant lights, overhead lighting, or chandelier lighting. These kitchen lighting options add personality to the room and bring a touch of color and style to any kitchen. For example, a modern farmhouse kitchen might feature exposed light bulbs with wood features for a down-to-earth aesthetic. In contrast, a more modern kitchen may have gold pendants or a sparkly chandelier as a visual focal point. Depending on your personal preference and your home’s style, your kitchen lighting can totally be a game-changer for the look of your space. It’s something you need to consider when remodeling your kitchen.
Another type of lighting that homeowners sometimes overlook is under cabinet lighting. These are lights that are attached underneath your cabinets, providing ample light above your countertops. These lights add a subtle but strong effect in your kitchen, highlighting the countertops and surrounding appliances. Under cabinet lighting brings out the color and vibrancy of your new granite or quartz countertops and have the potential to be a great addition to any kitchen, no matter what decorating style you prefer.
Benefits of under cabinet lighting
Most kitchens still continue to use standard, overhead lighting, so a kitchen with under cabinet lighting will stand out compared to the rest. Plus, under cabinet lighting is simple to install and extra convenient, especially for those late-night refrigerator runs. Here are a few more benefits of choosing under cabinet lighting in your home:
- More versatility in lighting options: You’ll have more options when it comes to brightening your kitchen. If it’s late at night, for example, you can easily turn on the under cabinet lighting for a softer, less harshly bright look.
- Beautiful, subtle glow to your kitchen: Under cabinet lighting provides a soft glow in your kitchen, setting the mood for a more peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
- Better visuals when cooking or cleaning: This benefit is a no-brainer—you’ll be able to see your food and cooking more clearly with additional lights installed!
- Energy- and cost-efficient: Instead of lighting up the entire kitchen each time you walk in the room, you can save energy by only using the under cabinet lights. Additionally, these lights are cheap and easy to install.
- Eliminates dark shadows: Say goodbye to dark, hidden corners of your kitchen when you install under cabinet lights.
- Higher interior value: When it comes time to sell your home, potential buyers will appreciate the look of under cabinet lights because it makes the kitchen feel a little more complete and highlights its best features, namely the new countertops, cabinets, and appliances.
You’ll notice the difference almost immediately. Under cabinet lights bring an extra layer of warmth and brightness to any kitchen, no matter how large or small. You don’t need to have an unlimited budget for these lights, either. They’re affordable and add a simple touch of elegance to your home! When you’re chopping up vegetables at the counter, you’ll be thankful you have a little extra lighting to see clearly.
Other lighting features your kitchen needs
While you’re exploring under cabinet lighting options, check out these additional kitchen lighting features that can spruce up any kitchen space:
- Vent hood lighting
- Wall-mounted lighting or sconces
- Metallic or textured lights
- Lighting over the sink
- Mix-and-match lighting pendants
- Bold-colored lighting
Your lighting options are almost endless! You can find additional lighting inspiration in popular home magazines or from your favorite home decor accounts or bloggers. The beauty of kitchen lighting is that there’s no right or wrong answer—whatever look you love can work great in your kitchen, provided you have the space to make it work.
If you want to make a bold statement with your kitchen lighting, try gold pendant lights over the island or a pair of big, industrial hood lights. If you want a more subtle, traditional look, go with recessed lighting. For more creativity, install cabinet lights and island lighting, so your whole kitchen can glow with a modern feel! Remember, your lighting choices can change the entire look and perception of your kitchen.

Cabinet add-ons and improvements
Upgrading your cabinets and drawers with a new color and finish is a great move to make in any kitchen, but did you know you can also include other cabinet features when you replace your cabinets, such as lift-up cabinets, soft-close cabinets, and corner drawers? You can customize your cabinets to best suit your personal needs. For example, if you want easy access to your spices, you can add a vertical spice drawer with multiple levels that fits nicely between your oven and your other cabinets. That’s a kitchen feature that will directly lead to some great cooking!
Choosing the best countertop for your home
Any kitchen renovation should include some type of countertop improvement. When it comes to countertop materials, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the amount of options available. Do you go with butcher block, quartz, or granite? What color of countertop or look will pair best with your cabinets?
Depending on your cooking habits, personal preferences, and maintenance capabilities, you’ll be able to narrow down your wide number of options to a countertop that you love. Superior Stone & Cabinet has hundreds of countertop options to choose from, and we’re with you every step of the way! We have expert consultants who can provide advice and tips on picking the right material for your remodel.
Hidden kitchen features
When you work with a professional company like Superior Stone & Cabinet here in Phoenix, you even have options for hidden kitchen features that will greatly improve your life. For example, you can add a cutting board drawer that easily pops in and out of place when you need it for quick cutting. There are no-spill protectors you can add underneath your sink for easy wiping and fast cleanup. If you like the look of glass cabinet fronts, those can be added as well! There are almost endless options for your kitchen, and it all starts with your design dream or vision.
Here are just a few hidden kitchen features that can greatly improve your home:
- Floating shelves: A floating shelf is not part of an enclosed cabinet and doesn’t feature a swing-open door. These shelves are mostly decorative, but they also offer creative space solutions for homeowners wanting to display their best kitchen items. If you are working with a smaller kitchen, floating shelves are a good choice to make the space appear larger and less cramped.
- Soft-close and lift-up cabinets: These cabinet features add variety to your space. With soft-close doors, you can avoid the loud banging that accompanies many cabinets. Lift-up cabinets are usually attached to the countertop on the lowest level and provide more room to store bread, butter, or produce on your counter without it being in sight of all your guests.
- Pull-out cabinets with lazy Susans: Have you ever been on your hands-and-knees, searching for a pan that’s hidden in the deep caverns of a corner cabinet? With a new pull-out cabinet and lazy Susan, you’ll be able to reach those pots and pans without hassle. The definitive spinning feature of a built-in lazy Susan makes it easy to find and store kitchen items.
- Vertical drawers: Like the spice rack drawer we mentioned, vertical drawers add a nice visual element to your space. They’re also highly functional—you can use vertical drawers for easy-to-reach items like spices or utensils.
- Plate drawers: These larger drawers are often located on the kitchen island or near the oven. They are long, deep drawers suited to fit your plates, instead of having to stack heavy plates on high shelves. These drawers often feature wooden pegs to separate and organize fine china or plates. A drawer for your plates make it easier for storage and entertainment.

Tips and tricks for remarkable renovations
Do all the research you can before jumping into a major home project. Before you start swinging a sledgehammer, consider following these tips to ensure your renovation is a success:
- Plan ahead: You may have heard the popular construction saying, “Measure twice, cut once.” This means that the more thorough and careful your planning is, the smoother the actual project execution will be. At Superior Stone & Cabinet, our planning process involves meeting with one of our renovation experts to make your vision come to life. We use blueprints, digital renderings, and photographs to build your dream room before the real room is ever touched!
- Make a schedule: For the most part, a renovation project can’t be completed in one day. Remodeling takes time and effective scheduling. For example, if you have children at home or want to leave on vacation, you’ll need to keep that in mind when opening your home to professionals. If you want a brand-new kitchen, plan to eat out during some meals, since your kitchen will look like a construction zone for at least some period of time. By setting a realistic timetable, you can know when the project will start, how long each step will take, and when the renovation will be done! If you’re working with the team here at Superior, we’ll provide you with a precise timetable for our work ahead of the start of the project.
- Be patient: Knowing that most projects can’t be completed overnight, you can rest easy when you follow your schedule. Patience is the key to a great remodeling project. If you become impatient and rush the job, the final result may be less-than-ideal. Our team of installers and construction experts will respect your home and property and listen to your needs. By being patient in return and waiting for the end result, you can make the process that much smoother.
Mistakes to avoid
During your renovation, there are some potential mishaps you’ll want to avoid. Check out some of these mistakes that can be easily avoided:
- Not speaking up: If, during your renovation, you notice a paint color that doesn’t seem right, say something! It’s easier to make changes when an issue is noticed right away. If you wait until the very end of the project to say something, you’ll have to wait even longer for the new result. Open communication is the key to a successful renovation.
- Making snap decisions: With hundreds of countertop options and dozens of cabinet features to sort through, you don’t want to make any quick decisions that you’ll regret later. For example, if you rush through the design or planning phase and realize that you really wanted a spice drawer or a pull-out feature in your cabinet, you’ll wish you had picked that option earlier. You should make each renovation decision with care, taking into account your daily routine, preferences, and needs.
- Trying to do your own remodel: A DIY approach can initially sound attractive and affordable, but you could be making many mistakes along the way. Using incorrect tools or trying to paint your own cabinets can be tiresome, frustrating, and ineffective. Our professional team knows how to tackle your project and save you money along the way!

What to consider when looking for countertop colors for your remodel
Take a look at undertones
The best place to start looking for a new quartz color is your current or dream kitchen. What colors are your cabinets and walls? The undertone of your quartz should typically match or compliment the undertones of your entire kitchen setup.
For example, white cabinets could use either a white quartz countertop, or a contrasting grey or black quartz. White is an easy example, but follow the same strategy whether your cabinets are yellow, blue, wood or any other color or pattern.
If you’re installing new cabinets at the same time you’re getting new countertops, this is even easier! Talk to one of our design pros here at Superior Stone & Cabinet and we can suggest any number of aesthetically pleasing pairings of quartz and cabinet colors.
Remember your complimenting colors
Your kitchen isn’t monotone, so don’t choose a countertop to simply match the existing colors. Think about complimenting your current look and style with a complimenting color.
If your kitchen is missing a splash of color, look for a more bold quartz choice. Or tone down your vibrant walls and cabinets with a calm white or grey monotone countertop.
The perfect pattern
A patterned countertop can incredibly striking. For better or worse, the style of pattern on your countertop can set the tone for your entire kitchen. Particularly if you have large, open areas of countertop, consider the style of pattern that works best for your style.
Patterns are more complex than simple color options. Some patterns offer a fresh, natural look, while others are smooth and sublime.
If your kitchen already has a variety of textures and patterns, consider a muted quartz option. Or for a touch of personality, choose quartz that has speckles, swirls or other natural features for added visual interest.
Enjoy the stunning quality of quartz
Few countertop materials can match the elegance and natural durability of quartz. Whether replacing an outdated style or upgrading to your first quartz countertop, let Superior Stone & Cabinet assist you with your purchase. Contact us today to discover how you can get more out of your kitchen remodel with our wide array of quartz color and style choices. We have the countertop colors for your remodel.
Many homeowners spend a large amount of time in the kitchen–and for good reason. Your kitchen is the “hub” of your home: a place to unwind, prepare family meals, and try out that new instant pot. With the right cabinets, countertops, and appliances, your kitchen can feel like new again. However, there’s one feature you can add during a kitchen remodel that will truly complete the entire look—a backsplash.
A kitchen backsplash not only adds character and style to your space, but it also creates a protective wall against stains, messes, or spills. Your backsplash doesn’t need to cost a fortune, and, when finished, will leave your kitchen looking better than when you began.
How a backsplash adds character to your kitchen
Some homeowners overlook the backsplash because they believe it’s an “extra” design feature in the kitchen that functions only as decoration. Contrary to that belief, a backsplash can add character and style to a kitchen that a coat of paint simply cannot. That blank wall space between the countertop and cabinet has the capacity to be filled with color, texture, and shape. Investing in and learning about the right kind of backsplash can increase your kitchen’s value, which increases the overall value of your home.
If you love the look of white cabinets, white quartz countertops, and clean appliances, your backsplash is the perfect opportunity to throw in some color or texture. With so many options to explore, you’re sure to find something that matches your style and personality. Imagine a blue tile overlay or a white herringbone pattern to cover up that plain wall. There are even peel-and-stick options or DIY-friendly backsplash kits you can try if you’re more of a hands-on homeowner.
What kind of kitchen backsplash do you need?
Whether your style is modern, farmhouse, or traditional, a backsplash can reflect your personality while providing protection and balance to your kitchen. With so many backsplash options on the market, let’s explore a few of the most popular choices: peel-and-stick, beadboard / shiplap, and tile.
Peel-and-stick tiles are a widely popular choice for DIY experts and those working within a tighter budget. These tiles work exactly like they sound—you peel off the backing, and stick the pattern where you’d like against the wall. Though this method sounds quick-and-easy, the truth is that DIY options take a lot of time, measuring, and accuracy. One wrong stick, and your backsplash will look crooked.
Additionally, these peel-and-stick options won’t protect your walls or appliances as well as ceramic or porcelain tile can. Before you run to the nearest home improvement store to grab a roll of this easily-applied backsplash, make sure you know the pros and cons.
Beadboard / shiplap
If you go with a beadboard or shiplap backsplash, you’ll want to invest in durable wood and the right coat of paint. This material works well in a farmhouse or traditional home. Shiplap adds more protection than peel-and-stick tiles, but it also may prove to be more difficult to clean and care for. Sticky fingers or stains can leave their mark on white wood. You can achieve the wood look for less money than tile or marble, making it a nice middle option for backsplashes. Be sure to look online at blogs, Pinterest, and home improvement websites to find the look that’s right for you.
Porcelain and ceramic tiles are a tried-and-true option for any backsplash. With hundreds of colors, shapes, and textures, tile can be arranged in a variety of ways. For example, you can pick a white subway tile to bring a modern look to your space. Or, you can go with a teal or blue glossy tile to add a pop of color to the wall. Tile is easy to wipe down and lasts for years, making it one of the best picks for your backsplash needs.
Choosing a remodeling professional for your kitchen needs
Whatever kind of backsplash you choose for your kitchen, be sure to consult with a remodeling professional before you begin. A few extra tips will help in the long run. If you’re going with a tile or marble backsplash, a renovation expert will be your best choice for installation. You can create the perfect balance of the functional and beautiful in the room you spend the most time in. Your kitchen will truly feel complete once that last tile is sealed into place, brightening up your kitchen with a brilliant backsplash.

Focus on the intersection of price and quality
There’s a wide, diverse range of countertops out there. Chances are, if you’re like most homeowners, you don’t want to be in the high-end or the low-end of kitchen and bathroom countertops. In other words, you need countertop value so that you can get good, high-quality stone counters without spending a small fortune or blowing your remodeling budget on just one aspect of your new kitchen or bathroom.
That’s where we come in. Superior Stone & Cabinet is a wholesale, direct importer. This means that we buy the same countertops as many other suppliers, but we cut out the middlemen that lead to exorbitant price increases and sticker shock at those other places. We have a wide range of countertops available, including over 100 quartz colors. This means that we likely have a countertop in the color you’re looking for, at the right price for your budget.
Find ways to bundle
Chances are that you’re not just replacing your countertops. You’re probably working on your entire kitchen or bathroom all at once. This not only makes sense as a homeowner (who wants to remodel their kitchen twice?), but it makes sense from a remodeling cost perspective. At Superior, we offer several bundles that pair together cabinets and countertops. This is perfect for you if you’re looking to either upgrade your kitchen or to have a new bathroom vanity installed.
High-quality countertop value
We don’t cut figurative corners when it comes to cutting prices. We make sure that our granite and quartz countertops are high quality and ready to be installed in your home. We carry both prefabricated and slab granite, and a wide variety of granite colors and quartz colors for you to choose from.
