Replace countertops and backsplash

When choosing a material for your countertop, quartz stone is the best bet. Because of its non-porous surface and low water absorption rating, a quartz countertop can prevent the growth of molds and bacteria on the slab’s surface.

P.tech quartz countertops are made of premium quartz. It’s actually 90-percent quartz, so it’s eco-friendly.

You can also elevate your kitchen space with unique Picasso Mosaic Peel & Stick self-adhesive tiles. These easy-to-install mosaic tiles can give your space a seamless, personal touch. Choose from a variety of colors, patterns and designs, and install it over existing tiles or on a concrete wall.
