Homeowner in Annapolis Remakes Bathrooms Using Granite Stone
Annapolis is much more than just the capital of Maryland, it’s a place where over 38,700 people call home. It’s a city situated in Anne Arundel County, and right next to the Chesapeake Bay near Severn River. It’s also about 25 miles from Baltimore and 30 miles from Washington D.C. Because of its proximity to these cities, it is a part of the Baltimore-Washington metro area.
This city was settled in the 1600s and was first known as the Province of Maryland, or Providence. Early settlers first inhabited the north shore of Severn River, before moving down to a more protected area in the south shore, which was first named Town at Proctor’s, then changed to Town at the Severn. Later it was changed again to Anne Arundel’s Town after Lord Baltimore’s wife.
In 1783, Annapolis became a temporary U.S. capital after the Treaty of Paris was signed. This was the first place the delegates decided to meet to go over the regulations of commerce. Since only six showed up, it was rescheduled to be held in Philadelphia the following year.

Local Residents Upgrade their Homes with Granite
KNC Granite has been serving the Annapolis community for many years. Customers contact us for a number of reasons, including upgrading bathrooms with granite. This is exactly what was done for one customer who wanted to makeover their bathrooms. The customer had recently moved into the property after buying it for a steal of a price. There was work that needed to be one throughout the home, but the first priority was the bathrooms.
The vanities were rundown and had chipped porcelain sinks and stained laminate countertops. The floors were also going to need work, which consisted of cheap vinyl tile. The goal was to transform the master and guest bathrooms with beautiful new vanities and sinks and updated floors. Not only would this improve their quality of living, but it would also increase the value of the property in case they wanted to sell it in the future.
Granite was the material the client chose to upgrade the countertops. Engineered quartz was the choice for the floors. Once the vanities were updated with new counters and sinks, it really brought out the beauty in the rooms. The shower was already enact and the walls were freshly painted, so it was the final piece of the puzzle.
A Place to Call Home
Sarah was the customer in this story – she and her husband Gary decided to move to this sleepy town and make a home for themselves. Once the renovations for the home were completed by KNC Granite, they had a place they could be proud of. Before the work was performed, they avoided inviting people over out of shame they had for their restrooms. The idea of allowing visitors to see the guest bathroom in that state was too embarrassing.
Now, they are very pleased with the updates and enjoy company all the time. Sarah and Gary were astonished when they saw the final outcome of their bathrooms. The colors they chose suited the décor nicely and the floors matched the counters, even though they were two different materials. Engineered quartz resembles natural stone, so it’s a perfect addition to rooms that have other types of stones, such as granite.
Upgrades Like this Are Quick and Easy
Since there were no surprises along the way, such as cracked pipes, the project was implemented fairly quickly and easily. The licensed professionals we oversee on these projects at KNC Granite were able to perform their jobs within just two weeks. Most of the time was spent waiting on the materials to get shipped out.
Our experts came to their home to analyze the bathrooms and to provide a free estimate. We supplied the materials through the suppliers we have contracts with. This helped to reduce the costs of the overall project and sped it up. Once we got our hands on the items needed to complete the job, it was done within a few days.
There weren’t any hiccups along the way, so the job was a simple one. The counters were properly sealed to ensure that the granite lasts a very long time. We recommended to have this done annually to prevent the counters from becoming damaged by the water, cleaning supplies and bathoom items that can scratch it.
The Granite Counter Installation
Laminate counters are simple to remove, so the installation process was seamless. Once we cut the slab to the appropriate proportions, we put it in place. After sanding it and ensuring it was smooth and flawless, we used a finish and then sealed it with a quality sealant. This was performed in both the guest and master bathrooms, where there were his and her vanities.
