View Slabs at Stone Showrooms

We have a network of stone showrooms throughout South Africa. After you have selected your favourite colours on this website the next step is to contact your local stone rooms and book an appointment to view the stone slabs in person. See list of stone showrooms below.

 

At the stone showroom you will be guided by a stone professional who will be able to offer advice and suggestions.

 

Viewing the stone slabs in person is a very exciting and important step in the process.

 

warning

Before visiting any stone showrooms, make sure you have completed the following steps:

 

  • Considered the different stone types, see: Step 1: Choosing a Stone Type
  • Made a list of your favourite stone colours, see: Step 2: Choosing a Stone Colour

Tips

 

Booking the Appointment:

 

tick

 

Inform the stone showroom of which stone colours you’re interested in viewing so that they can check stone stock and prepare the slabs for your viewing.

Set aside at least a couple of hours for each appointment. Viewing the stone slabs can take a considerable amount of time. Slabs behind slabs have to be lifted by crane one at a time.

 

Viewing the Stone Slabs:

When you find a stone colour that you like, ask to view more slabs within the batch.
There will be variations in colour and formation in each and every slab - some natural stone patterns are very consistent, whilst others exhibit "waves" of movement and colour in the stone.

Take a camera and a note pad so that you can keep track of your favourite slabs.

If you need more than one slab for your countertops installation then make sure choose slabs from the same ‘mining batch’ to ensure that your countertop sections match.

 

 

Pricing and Quoting

 

Stone showrooms don't sell stone slabs directly to the public. They sell the slabs to the stone fabricators who install the countertops. For this reason, they cannot give you accurate pricing on the cost of installing your countertops.

 

warning

Pricing and quotes can only be obtained from the stone fabricators who install countertops.

 

Estimated Pricing

 

For your convenience all the stone colours on this website have been grouped into estimated price ranges and can be found in the description of each colour see the stone colour galleries.
