Full-Height Backsplashes

Full-Height Backsplashes

Full-height backsplashes have become a very popular kitchen design element in new home construction, renovation projects, and remodeling projects. A standard backsplash measures 4 inches from the top of the countertop surface. Full-height backsplashes, also called slab or panel backsplashes, can stretch from the top of the countertop to the bottom of upper cabinets or all the way to the ceiling.

Full-height backsplashes add a dramatic and unique design to the kitchen. Full-height slab backsplashes can be custom cut into shapes or fill the entire wall. Panel backsplashes may be easier to clean than tile backsplashes – depending on the material chosen. 

Full-height backsplashes are a great option to place between cooktops and vent hoods. A minimalist color stone will accent a custom vent hood or high-end cooktop or range. A vibrantly veined natural stone backsplash can add drama and a bold design element. A custom shaped slab backsplash can add whimsy and draw the eye to the center of the room.

Quartz Countertops for Restaurants

Quartz Countertops for Restaurants

Quartz Countertops For Commercial Food Service

Countertops for restaurants, bars, cafes, and clubs need to look fabulous and hold up to heavy usage. Durability, cleaning and maintenance are an important part of deciding what materials are best to use for commercial food preparation and serving areas.

Quartz countertops are a very popular choice for restaurant kitchens and serving areas. Quartz countertops are a non-porous material that is stain resistant and bacteria resistant so it is a great option for restaurants. Quartz is also impact and scratch resistant making it an excellent choice for high-use public areas.

Quartz is a man-made material that is available from several manufacturers, such as Silestone, Zodiaq, Cambria and Caesarstone, with styles that vary in color and design. Quartz countertops are available in a rainbow of colors from subtle to bold. Quartz countertops are often solid but can also be veined to look like Marble and other natural stone. Here are a few examples of Quartz countertops that Surface One installed in restaurants and commercial food service areas.

Cambria Quartz Countertops in University Cafeteria

In this project, Surface One fabricated and installed Cambria Hollinsbrook Quartz Countertops in the Samford University Cafeteria located in Homewood, Alabama. This is the main dining area for the Samford University students, fondly referred to as ‘The Caf’. Cambria Quartz surfaces are durable and bacteria resistant, making them ideal for food service areas. Each Quartz slab was custom fabricated to fit the commercial restaurant equipment specifications, including specialty sinks, hot and cold buffet units, steam tables, custom cooktops and food preparation stations. The final product is eye catching, durable and easy to maintain.

Zodiaq Quartz in University Baseball Stadium Club

Surface One was pleased to have participated renovation of the Sewell-Thomas Stadium at the University of Alabama. The “Joe” is a state-of-the-art baseball facility with several new upscale club and dining options. For this renovation, the University of Alabama chose Cloud White Zodiaq Quartz countertops for the .525 Club and Mystic Black Zodiaq Quartz Countertops for the Home Plate Club. The finished product is a modern design that is easy to clean and highly durable.

Zodiaq Quartz in Pizza Restaurant

A light colored Savory Zodiaq Quartz is featured on the long curved bartop while a darker Saddle Brown Zodiaq Quartz was used for the round serving area at the bar and most of the tables in the bar.
