Q: What Should Be Considered in Regards to Design?

A: Design elements should be taken into consideration in addition to aesthetic, strength, and durability, especially in terms of interior applications. The Fabricator or Supplier guides the Designer in helping them understand the capacity of the materials as they integrate these limitations, or possibilities, into their imaginative creations.  Most design considerations are around allowable overhangs. 6 to 8″ unsupported for natural stone, following the 1/3 rule (no more than 1/3 of the piece overhanging, and no more than 1/3 of the piece cut out).  Much more can be done with quartz.  Call for details and a consultation.
