From 2022 kitchen and bathroom design trends to how marble and granite are mined and beyond, Colonial Marble & Granite is always excited to give industry insight through myriad lenses that speak directly to homeowners, interior designers, commercial property managers, architects, and beyond. Sharing our expertise lets us not only open up vital conversations but participate in them as well — and when major publications help us share our story, we’re thrilled about the opportunity to speak to what makes us so passionate about what we do.
House & Home recently did a profile on Colonial Marble & Granite with input from our very own Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Sandra Phillips. Let’s take a look at what it covered:
Sandra Phillips and the Future of Colonial Marble & Granite
“This past year has been such an adventure,” says Phillips. “We’re bringing in so many products that the Philadelphia market has never before seen.”
Over the past few years, our company has expanded our offerings that go beyond countertops, adding tiles, fixtures, and smart home products into our suite of kitchen and bathroom services. With an extensive background in high-end residential and commercial design, Phillips was brought on to help build out the bolstered roster of solutions — from operations development to design support. Colonial Marble & Granite President Nikos Papadopoulos’ passion for stone paired with Phillips’ design experience has opened the floodgates in terms of enhanced customer service, trend-forward initiatives, and overall company growth.
Colonial Marble & Granite: The Ultimate One-Stop-Shop
Our company has always worked with customers who have a designer or architect for their project, but now, we have the ability to serve those at different stages of the process — including end-to-end design and installation. “We saw the need with clients walking through our doors who had nothing to start with, so whether they come in with a design already or they want us to create one, we’re going to dive deeper with them on the project,” says Phillips.
This holistic approach goes above and beyond simply ushering customers to the stone yard; it’s about partnering with them to make the most out of any stone and follow through with the vision with backsplashes, hardware, and other features that complement the project’s overall environment.
Setting Trends With an Impressive Supply
With the onset of COVID-19 and a veritable WFH era, many realized they wanted their spaces to feel homier and more comfortable. Stark, fresh, monochromatic palettes — while beautiful in their own right — have trended downward, with warmer, earth-toned principles coming to the forefront of preferred modern design, particularly for kitchens and bathrooms; the main focal point of which is countertops.
Fortunately, our long-standing relationships with leading vendors allow us to capitalize on stone supply’s high demand; “We have the largest natural slab yard in the Northeastern U.S. where you’ll find anything you need,” says Phillips, “No one else in the country has this selection.” Despite supply chain shortages, our customers have access to a plentiful, diversified, and unique inventory.
