Calacatta Luccia is a gorgeous quartz color from MSI. Calacatta is popular because it looks like marble without worrying about stains and scratches. What it does have is dramatic veining in “greige,” which is my way to describe the beautiful blending of gray and beige on a creamy, white background. I like using it as statement pieces like island waterfalls or other contemporary designs like shower walls or tub surrounds. Wood cabinets are trending now and when paired with Calacuttta Luccia it gives you that warm cozy feeling. It’s a nice neutral so most cabinet colors will match beautifully. Make Calacatta Luccia your choice for your remodel and bring modern elegance to your home.
For homeowners who want to try something different in countertop design, Progressive Dimensions now offers honed finish. Honed granite is natural stone that is unpolished or matte (low-gloss shine). This finish has been creating quite a buzz over the past few years and here’s why: 1) When you run your palms along the surface, it’s soft and cool to the touch 2) If you’re looking for a relaxed look with visual appeal, honed granite is the perfect choice 3) Honed granite is non-reflective and, as a result, hides, scratches, etching and other imperfections better than polished granite 4)Honed granite is available in a wide range of colors. The grays, blacks, and off-whites are the most popular.
To keep your countertops in tip top shape, we recommend Progressive Dimensions’ 15 year Sealer. By properly sealing your granite countertop, you will increase its lifespan. The best part? Honed granite that has been taken care of won’t lose its value. If you spill acidic food or liquid, the best thing to do is clean it up right away with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. Also, there are products on the market that work great on stains. Use Windex without ammonia for everyday cleaning.
If you’re thinking about incorporating honed granite in your home, Progressive Dimensions suggests that you stop in any of our showrooms to see large samples of all of our finishes: polished, brushed, iced, and honed. There you can compare, feel, and visualize which finish fits best in your personal space.
Spring is one of the most popular times for people to put their homes on the market. With the season being just around the corner, now is the perfect time to research ways to get top dollar for your home before you list it.
According to Zillow, “minor updates” to a kitchen can provide a big ROI. A minor update such as replacing outdated countertops can attract more buyers to a certain property over the other homes for sale in the area.
When homeowners shop Progressive Dimensions Countertops (with 3 locations throughout South Jersey), they’ll get a great price and a fast turnaround time for their countertop project. Using Progressive Dimensions’ same-day removal and installation service, allows for convenience and full use of their existing kitchen during the template and fabrication process.
Switching out hardware such as drawer pulls, door handles and faucets is an inexpensive way to compliment a new countertop and make a kitchen standout to a buyer.
In as little as 3 weeks, a home could have an updated countertop that will give any listing agent a reason to ask for top dollar!
We all know that leftovers can be a good thing. The same could be said about natural stone and man-made quartz remnants. Like a fresh coat of paint, remnants can give design projects the boost that it needs on a modest budget.
Here at Progressive Dimensions, you only pay for the natural stone or quartz you use, which leaves remnants of all different dimensions ready to fulfill your dreams. And starting at $50 a sq ft., they are sold at discount prices to a lucky buyer.
Looking for an outdoor grill top? The remnant is the way to go. A master bath vanity and shower pieces in that gray color that you love? Check out our remnants. All three of our locations: Toms River, Manahawkin, or Egg Harbor Township, have remnants to peruse through, no appointment necessary. You will be pleasantly surprised by the color and style options. And you’ll still get our superior customer service including digital templating and fabricating, and expert installation.
If you’re renovating your kitchen or bathroom, I see a sink in your future. Sinks add character to your ideal design. Sure, there are many sinks out there. But don’t worry, we have a nice selection on display in our showroom. If you’d rather buy your own sink, that’s ok too. Just have it on hand when they come to do the template.
Let’s start with the Model #908, which is stainless steel, like all of the sinks that I will talk about from here on in. They are also all undermount sinks, which is pretty standard. The #908 is the “ go to” sink because it’s nice and deep, coming in at 9” deep. It’s also easy to keep clean.
The #508 Model is called a “D” Bowl because it looks like the letter D when you look at it sideways. With this sink, you have a bigger soaking area, which means that you could put bigger pots and pans. Just a side note: the faucet needs to be drilled on the right or left side because of its unique shape.
The #408 or Jumbo sink is like the #908 but bigger and 8” deep. That brings us to the #308, which is the same as the Jumbo sink but is divided 70/30. It is also called a vegetable because it allows you to separate your food.
The #208 Model splits the sink in two. It’s called the 50/50 and is 9” deep.
The Farmhouse Sink is trending now. It is fabricated in an 18” gauge stainless steel and has a stainless steel apron.
Vanities are usually made of porcelain. We have an 18 by 12” rectangular undermount sink in white or bisque and an oval vanity, same measurements and color options. The oval is 61/2” deep and the rectangle is 6” deep.
Like I said, there are a lot of sinks out there. It all boils down to visualizing how your kitchen sink will increase productivity while achieving the “look” you desire.
Keep in mind, sinks don’t just stop there. We carry bar sinks and other special order custom sinks, that can take you to the limits when complimenting your project.

It looks like many of us will have to change the way we do business and start working from home. Having a space designated for this will help you look forward to each day and promote a productive workflow.
The functionality of your office like desk space, bookcases, and file cabinets blended with art, family photos, and plants will make it one of your favorite rooms. An L top is not only elegant but practical because you have easy access to all the technology you need like your computer and printer.
Office desks should survive everything from big important projects to coffee spills. Using granite or quartz is a good idea. Tested to stand the test of time, including being scratch resistant, these surfaces also come in many beautiful and unique colors destined to catch your eye. Lighter colors are on trend now because it makes the room seem larger and brighter. It may uplift your mood too. Earthy, brownish shades are on the rise while a dark top adds elegance. These surfaces are easy to keep clean with a little soap and water and there are disinfectants on the market that are gentle enough to use on a daily basis.
If you still want to add your personal touch, how about decorative molding or pretty cabinet knobs and pulls.
Now’s the time to take advantage of our free consultations and start creating your dream office. Our designers can recommend what is the best use of space and efficiency. Call 732-244-0109 today.
