Illuminated Quartzite

This wonderful project came to completion in summer of 2014 and brought additional spark to my client’s home.

Concept Tile and Design Scott Kland Illuminated Kitchen Backsplash Quartzite Stone Vermont

Brasilian quartzite is a semi-translucent stone with beautiful color variations. When back-lit the structural details and three-dimensional features of this stone stand out phenomenally.

Customer Review:

Scott did much of the tiling in our new Vermont home and some of its special features. His craftsmanship is superb – he pays great attention to detail, offers creative advice and ultimately helped us translate our ideas into a reality that exceeded our expectations.
He designed a complex lighting system that made it possible to smoothly illuminate a massive stone back-splash that sets our kitchen aglow.  In addition, we commissioned him to build a custom pedestal of light that transforms and highlights a fine glass sculpture making an eye-catching addition to our beautiful new home.
We cannot recommend anyone more highly than Scott.

From Concept to Finish

In my work I focus on simple & elegant design, functionality and attention to detail in craftsmanship. Before setting the first tile, I like to get a feel for the space and discuss your ideas on design and materials. The use of modeling software allows me to create a project mockup and identify potential pitfalls or design improvements.

Design 1: based on the initial discussion with the client

Design 2: adjusted niche position and diagonal floor tile

This bathroom is fairly small and benefits from diagonally set floor tile (as compared to the rectangular pattern). Meanwhile, moving the niche further away from the shower head allows for easy reach.






Customer Review:

Scott worked with us on our bathroom remodeling project.  He gave us very helpful design information both for proper wall and floor preparation and final tile design.  He provided clear options to help us come to important decisions.  The work was completed with superb attention to detail and to our own preferences.
