I dig that wall-to-wall niche! Super cool. Haven't seen that before. Hard to see in the photo... did you bullnose all the way around the inside walls/floor/ceiling of the niche? How'd you handle the wall-tile-to-niche transition if it's basically flat? Skip the bullnose there?


Edit: Also, thanks RMckee84 for the heads-up on Contractors Direct! I try to support my small/local brick & mortar stores but sometimes you can't justify paying the local prices on stuff that's widely available way cheaper online, incl s&h.

I like the big niches I think they are a whole lot less work I tried to upload one I did but the file must be to big. Speaking of ordering online I got both my sigma cutter the kera lift and cut strait from Europe got it 1P UPS with tariffs and custom's fees and still spent near $2k less than I would have if I bought it here in the states

Dekton slabs install

Hello all, just wanted to share a few pics of my latest Dekton slab install
This was a clad job. Header slabs are sitting on 2 -1/4" thick galvanized steel angles
All other pieces are attached with copper wire and 5" stainless steel tapcons drilled into the walls.
Footer slabs are 60"x56", mitered slabs are 120"x56"

I only install, I had a granite shop cut all the slabs for me and I did the install
I like working with the products, I dislike how almost every fabricator really dislikes to cut pieces for me cause Dekton is so hard to cut

Just gotta grout it in then put holes in it to cover it up with a floating 7” by 5” by 71” wood mantle and a 70” flatscreen.
