Remodel Sources for lighting fixtures:

Lighting can have a huge effect on the feel of your home or kitchen remodel - from under cabinet lights to chase out shadows under your cabinets to creative pendant lights to give your kitchen island a stunning spotlight, finding the right lighting element is key to giving your room the perfect ambiance. 

The current lighting trend is for unique pendant lights or chandeliers as a focal point in your kitchen, over your dining room table, to pinpoint your seating area, or even as a feature in the master bathroom! Finding the right resource for stylish ceiling lamps and wall-mounted lights is not as easy as you’d think!

The right lighting can completely transform your room - adding inviting warmth, affecting the color of your paint and tile, even shifting throughout the day as natural light changes.

Unlike a lot of our other home design resources, counter materials are a lot harder to source online. They’re immensely heavy, meaning they’re not your average Prime two-day shipping option, and the large scale materials typically involve a more strenuous install process than screwing in new hardware or laying new tile. Whether you’re considering natural stone slabs from a local shop, having something custom made by a cabinetmaker, or finding an authorized retailer for luxurious quartz countertops in your area, we consider staying closer to home for counter material sourcing.

How to find countertops near you - 

  • Local stone shop
  • Local carpenter 
  • CambriaUSA retailers

Hello! I would love you assistance. I have oak cabinets. White 12" stone white color floor tile. Black granite counter. Need a backsplash. Right now I have 4" tumbled marble in fall colors. I want to brighten my kitchen. What backsplash tile to you suggest. This is going to be a second home so I’d like to go toward something budget friendly. Thank you. I’ll send a pick if you give me an email. All suggestions appreciated. Any locations in Houston, Texas?
