Are you dreaming of the islands? Warm sand, or maybe shades of azure as far as the eye can see? Sure, the beach is beautiful and palm trees are pleasing. But I’m talking about the kind of island you can enjoy every day, year-round right in your kitchen!
At Marble and Granite Inc., we’re always dreaming of islands…and vanities, and showers, and floors! But speaking of breathtaking islands, here are a few that we think are especially eye-catching.
