Fossil Backsplashes, Countertops & More
A backsplash, counter or vanity top created from our fossilized limestone becomes a functional, timeless work of natural art. Each is unique, and each is designed with function and room integration in mind.
Backsplashes can be constructed from small or large tiles selected for their color, finish, and fossil content, or they can be created from a single, continuous slab of stone. House of Whitley offers a selection of pre-made, ready-to-install backsplashes, or we can custom design and build a backsplash to your specifications. Vanity tops are designed to accommodate the sink location, faucet location, and all other design elements, and can be supplied with a matching backsplash.
House of Whitley’s countertops, island tops, and bar tops are truly remarkable! When a stone especially suitable for a countertop is found in our quarry, the stone is taken out of the ground with that specific application in mind. Such a slab would contain strong fossil content, be structurally sturdy, and show good coloration. Our company prizes these large and hard-to-find fossil slabs. All of the stone used in these practical applications is supplied with a hand-rubbed sealer designed to protect the stone against stains.
Our fossils can be functional as well as decorative. Countertops, tables and tiles can be custom made to suit your individual project. For these purposes, stone slabs are honed to a smooth finish. During this process, care is taken to highlight the fossil fish within each slab, either honing them flush with the surface to reveal the true character of the stone or preparing them in relief as with our murals.
Over a dozen different layers of stone in the quarry are well suited for these uses, providing a choice of colors and textures to complement any décor. Individual fish are also available in several species.
We’ve done some amazing projects across the country in homes, offices, and even yachts. Let us be a part of your dream of the perfect interior.
