It’s nearly impossible to create the beautiful, custom granite looks you’ve become accustomed to from Prestige without also creating a lot of granite scraps. Scrap granite, or remnants, refers to the small pieces left over after cutting the slabs that will eventually be used for your project. Industry experts estimate that about 30 percent of granite purchased is never used. Instead of filling landfills with this waste, why not try repurposing it for different projects throughout your home?
Granite Remnants at Prestige
Remnants can obviously be used on vanities and smaller jobs, but we’re thinking a little more outside the box. There are so many different home improvement projects where you can use granite scraps. The possibilities are really limited only by your imagination!

Using granite remnants is an extremely cost effective way to create an impressive outdoor fountain.
Your water feature doesn’t have to be large to make a big statement. A smaller fountain makes a beautiful addition to any size garden or green space. This could also easily be recreated to add a tranquil touch indoors.
