Save steps and save money!
Before we introduced National Granite Luxuries™ to northeast Ohio, you probably took many steps from start-to-finish. First, you chose a slab, then the granite slab was shipped to a fabrication shops, then it was cut, and finally shipped to the store or your home.
National Design Mart eliminates those steps with our own in-house fabrication services. All you do is visit National Design Mart, choose the granite slab that meets your style needs, we cut it and you’re done – all in one location!
We provide the absolute best care of our Granite Luxuries™ products to ensure its beauty and durability. Our stone is placed in a climate-controlled environment to ensure it never endures the weather.
We guarantee you will not find a lower price in the Akron, Canton, or Cleveland market. But, if you do find a lower price within 30 days of your purchase, we’ll match it. Shop with us and save!

Granite Countertops FAQs
What kind of maintenance will my granite countertops require?
Virtually None! The only maintenance required will be to seal the countertops every six months. We also have a product that seals countertops for 15 years. The 15-year sealer comes with a guarantee that if your countertops develop a stain, Dupont will either fix it or buy you new countertops.
It takes longer to clean a countertop than to seal it.
How hard is it to seal my countertops?
For our in-house sealer:
- Clean and remove all debris from countertop
- With a paper towel, spread the sealer around, making sure to cover the surface and edges until they look wet.
- Pour more sealer on the countertop as needed.
- Let your countertop air dry for 15 to 20 minutes.
- If you see any wet sealer, take another paper towel and soak up the excess.
- If you see any haziness, go over that spot with fine steel wool until removed.
- We also provide professional cleaning and sealing of your countertops for $50.00 per application. We will also check for and fix any chips that may have occurred over normal use
Will I see my seam?
Yes, we have some of the best craftsmen in the area, but you will always see and feel your seam.
Will I have a grain change at my seam?
You may have a grain change at your seam. It all depends on the kitchen shape and the stone type chosen. It is perfectly acceptable to have a grain change on your seam and most “L” and “U” shaped kitchens have them.
Will I be able to lay out my templates?
Yes, we offer this service to our customers at our granite store. It is a great way for you to see what your countertops will look like. This is also a great time to get more of the desired pattern in prominent areas of your project. This eliminates any surprises during installation.
What should I use to clean my countertops?
Clean with any kind of cleaner that does not contain ammonia, bleach, citric acid, or any other kind of harsh chemicals. These chemicals will not hurt the stone but will strip away the sealer and leave the stone unprotected from staining.
Mild soap can be used to safely clean stone countertops. Feel free to call us or visit our showroom to purchase approved cleaning products.
Can I cut on my granite countertops?
Yes, but it will ruin your knife. Granite is harder than metal. You may notice some silver streaks in your granite after cutting. These are particles from your knife embedding in your granite. The silver streaks can be removed with a polishing compound and steel wool.
Can I take something out of the oven and put it directly on my countertops?
Yes. Unlike many manmade products that have epoxies and resins, granite is an all-natural product that will not melt.
