Read what our customers are saying about us
I have nothing but good things to say about Artistic Stone. From start to finish–this was one of the best experiences I have had with a business. They aren’t a big box store, but that is a plus. Sales handed us to Project Management, who carefully went over our drawings. They came up with ideas we hadn’t even considered, and then worked with us on pricing. Finally, installation was careful, accurate, and thorough. Everyone associated with Artistic Stone was nice, courteous, and professional. What a pleasant experience. Special kudos to Helen Wen, who was as careful as can be to make us happy customers.
First things first. 100 percent of the time,and every time we had any contact with Artistic Stone Kitchen and Bath employees, they followed Covid-19 safety protocols.
I first called to see if we could come in after reading lots of Yelp reviews. Min, the very friendly woman who answered, transferred me to Helen. I discussed what we wanted and we set up a time to go into the shop. Min showed us around while we waited to meet Helen. I was impressed by the inventory, options, and the organized manor in which the stone was displayed. We then met Helen and we began to develop our plan to transform our kitchen. We bought larger pieces of quartz for our kitchen countertops so we wouldn’t have seams.( really glad we did) We picked the tile we wanted and soon had the quote in our hands. We liked what we saw and we decided to sign the quote! A team came in, demo’d the original counter and wall surfaces coverings. A few days later or stone arrived and was installed. The next day the tile team professionals came in and did the tile work. The job was not completed fast but it was done correctly by people I felt confident about. My wife and I feel like we are standing in someone else’s kitchen! I mean we have been in a lot of other peoples kitchens that looked great but we never had one like this! Our kitchen! Yes it is! Now all we need is that bathroom we’ve seen but never had. We will be returning to see Helen and look forward to working on that. Kitchen and bath remodel is serious work and costs serious money. I can say with complete confidence that we were treated fairly, with respect, and received every penny’s worth of our investment. Thank you Helen, thank you to your entire team of professionals for the outstanding work they did. We appreciate the work you did. You have made our environment more enjoyable to live in. We truly appreciate it.
Whatever it is that you are looking for, Helen can get it for you, and has a crew of journeyman craft personal to install it professionally. I can highly recommend Artistic Stone Kitchen and Bath to anyone considering remodeling your kitchen, bath, or both!.
With cabinets installed, countertops were the last big remaining item for our kitchen remodeling project. We really liked the depth and robustness of quartzite vs. quartz. There are a lot vendors out there with many beautiful stone slabs. We found the prices can vary a lot, which get doubled when you account for fabrication and installation. Artistic Stone carries prefabricated quartzite sections, which helps reduce cost considerably if you find a stone color you like. We found a counter stone we really liked and were able to pick the specific sections we wanted. Installation went really well and we were really pleased. We worked with Jake and what we really liked was that on multiple occasions he gave us very honest answers to our questions (and sometimes suggestions), where I’m sure he could have sold us that “one more thing”. We are very happy with our countertops, and highly recommend Artistic Stone. If they have what you want, it will save you quite a bit of money. They are definitely worth visiting.
I had a fantastic and completely easy experience over at artistic stone! Could not recommend more highly, I worked with Jesse and they had excellent Covid-19protocols and visits were distanced and by appointment only. They had exactly what I was looking for and even made extra effort to ensure I could pick it up same day for my last minute needs. Go here if you need beautiful counters at a great price!
I’d give Artistic Stone Kitchen & Bath more than 5 stars if I could. They exceeded expectations in every aspect of my project.
I found them when I was looking for companies that sold and installed Starmark Cabinetry. Several years ago I had remodeled my kitchen and now I wanted to add pantry cabinets and create a coffee bar in the area that had been my dinette area. And, I wanted to match my existing cabinets. When I began to research if my existing cabinets that were built by Fieldstone Cabinetry were still available I discovered the company had been acquired, and the exact cabinet design I purchased several years ago is now available under both the Starmark and Fieldstone brands, so that expanded my options. After reaching out to the local companies that sold either of these cabinet brands Artistic was the clear winner.
Wallace, their Director of Cabinetry, was very responsive and he got back to me quickly. He was very patient as I changed my mind on the cabinet configuration several times. He updated the drawings and providing transparent pricing for multiple iterations and changes. He was at my home when the cabinets were delivered to ensure the order was correct and he was here when the installers began, to ensure the job went smoothly.
The process of selecting and installing the countertop was equally efficient. Both the cabinet and countertop installers did an excellent job of protecting my floors and other property throughout their work and they did a great job cleaning up when they were done.
In summary, I highly recommend Artistic Stone Kitchen & Bath. Besides their great service it’s helpful that they both sell and install cabinets, and they sell, fabricate and install counters, so it minimizes the numbers of companies to coordinate with during a kitchen update.
We ordered Quartzite countertops for our new home in 2019 from Artistic Stones. The Taj Mahal Quartzite is still beautiful. During installation, we encountered a few operational issues. Helen, the Manager and David, the Project Manager were proactive and effectively resolved them.
Last month we decide to renovate a recently vacated rental house in San Jose. I checked out a few countertops places first before contacting Helen. I wanted an idea of prices. I met with Helen at their San Leandro facility. I had already selected three different quartz options from their website for comparison. Helen’s opinion on each one were insightful and helpful in my making the final decision.
Demolition and installation took two days. During demolition, we discovered that there were a few odd configurations in the kitchen. Helen came through with excellent suggestions reflecting her experience in working with countertops.
The installation was complete yesterday. I am currently out of town and have not yet seen the final result. My son-in-law said the countertops were “great”. And he is a man who does not use superlatives loosely.
I don’t know if Artistic Stones prices are competitive but they are comparable as I did not do actual pricing comparison. There are too many variables. However, I am comfortable in saying that I do trust Helen’s expertise with stone countertops. When designing, buying, and installing stone countertops, what’s important to me is the company’s willingness to work with you whether to offer expert advice or fix a problem. Helen, as the Manager of Artistic Stones met the test.
Artistic Stone installed marble kitchen countertops in my downstairs unit in my duplex. There were many pieces which needed to be cut because there was so much surface area. The installers were friendly and provided great communication. There was a section which need a small amount of demo to make the marble fit and they did it quickly with no problem. They also installed quartz countertops in my upstairs unit and they came out very nice and the pricing was great. I would go to them with additional projects in the future with no question.
Ordered my cabinets and countertops and backsplash through Artistic stone and had a fantastic experience. The whole team was great and my newly remodel kitchen looks amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to work with. My sales rep was Jake and he is fantastic. He took the time to answered all my questions and was very responsive through email.
I really enjoy working with Helen at Artistic Stone. I have done 2 projects with them and getting ready to do a 3rd. Their products are high quality and their pricing is very competitive. Their installation crew is quick and detailed. I have done projects with other companies like Granite Expo and it was a disaster. You won’t be disappointed going with Artistic Stone.
I have used Artistic Stone on two separate home project. They are awesome. Remy, Helen, and David took care of my needs and made me feel like I was their top priority every time we spoke. No matter who helped me, Artistic Stone was on point and very friendly. Their experience and insight on how to approach projects are second to none. Trust me, you don’t have to look any further than Artistic Stone. I will be a repeat customer again and again…
Decided on Friday to replace our kitchen countertop; went down to the Artistic Stone showroom, picked out some prefab quartz, and by Wednesday we had a new counter. They made the selection and installation process easy. Thanks to everyone for getting our project done so quickly – we love our new kitchen counter.
Artistic Stone people are very friendly and knowledgeable and patient!!
They were very thoughtful in helping me pick out just exactly the right color and pattern. And once they helped me pick that out then they let me see as many slabs as I wanted , to choose just the right ones. After they came out and did the template they were again very patient while I chose which pieces of the slab to cut and where. They helped me match up the top to the waterfall and did a really good job.The final product is super beautiful and I’m very happy with it. In addition they were significantly cheaper than the other companies I got quotes from. By a couple thousand dollars. Also their installers did a quality job with the installation. Highly recommended!!
We used to have a dark granite installed in our kitchen years ago. My husband who loves to cook always complained of the dark granite in our kitchen. On his 70th birthday on 11/18 I decided to change the granite installed in our kitchen into a brighter color to please him. My daughter recommended to us Artistic Stone because of the quality of workmanship done in their island and countertop. We visited the store in San Leandro on 11/1 and the first granite that caught my eye in the showroom was the Blanco Antartica. We still looked around but still Blanco Antartica stand out. We signed the contract the same day but with the condition that the job should be done before 11/18. Helen promised me that it will be finished before the 11/18 because we had a party on that day.
We are very happy that our beautiful kitchen was finished as promised. We love the subway backsplash and the granite countertop and island.We will highly recommend Artistic Stone for their job well done.
I will definitely recommend Artistic Stone to any of my friends and neighbors. I visited many local businesses in Marin looking for well priced vanity and tub deck stone as well as a few in the east bay. I am so glad that I ended up using Artistic Stone.They are a pleasure to work with… so flexible and accommodating. Their product is well priced, (below market average) and the design team gave me options to fit in my budget. There was great follow up and follow through. The team of guys who came to my house for template making and installation could not have more cheerful, friendly, and professional. They had to come to my home in Marin two extra times after creating the first template for my tub deck: first time because I changed my mind on the design and a second time when my contractor made a design change. Artistic Stone never gave me a hard time about this. The same team came to measure and create a brand new template each time and were accommodating and generous with their time and ideas. So refreshing!! Our new vanity top and tub deck look perfect! I wish everyone could be as wonderful to work with as this company.Very well run.
We were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stone companies for which to choose when embarking upon our kitchen remodel. I stumbled upon Artistic Stone and had them draw up a preliminary quote. Not only were their prices very reasonable, they also were incredibly thorough and knowledgable about their stone materials as well as what our job would entail. Remi helped us hand-select the perfect quartz countertops for our kitchen and Marcos was an amazing installer who installed with absolute precision. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for high quality materials and really great prices.
I’m a professional home remodeler (llcoolhomes.com) so I shop, purchase and install construction materials all the time. My last project was my first time working with Artistic Stone. Debbie Daniels handled our project and she was a complete professional! The project mgmt through our project was outstanding, they were on top of every detail from measurement, to templating, to install. Nico and Julio did a fantastic job on the install. I buy from a lot of vendors but Artistic Stone is now on the top of my list.
Maria is a good as they get! Quick transaction, fair price, waaaaaaay better selection than anywhere else in the area. Went to a TON of places in San Leandro with a super lame selection of outdated, ugly options. Should have come to Artistic first, they were the absolute best, Maria was amazing and had great follow up…so appreciated!
Wow – perfect! Helen assisted me and was patient and super helpful as I wandered around looking for just the right material. I was so impressed by the customer service, the products, everything. I had visited 5 places before this where I felt ignored. I had expected more of the same here but the experience here was totally different. When I changed my mind about color, I even felt comfortable enough asking Helen to choose another color – even though I ultimately went back to my original choice.
Wow – if I had started here instead of with half a dozen other granite places, I could have saved myself hundreds of miles and lots of hours. I needed material for counter tops for a new kitchen. I initially wanted granite but various people convinced me to consider quartz. I stopped here on the spur of the moment after visiting another store and was so impressed by their beautiful selection of material and Helen’s professionalism that I knew this was where I would make my purchase. Helen was helpful, patient,professional – and the stone selection was amazing. I thought the cost was in line with other places I had visited, but the service was head and shoulders above all the other places. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is – save yourself time and frustration and look here first.
I searched and received quotes from several companies before I make up my mind with Artistic Stone. I did upgrade my kitchen counter tops with Artistic Stone and it was very pleasant experience. No hidden costs and surprises after the job. I definitely felt the cost was reasonable and competitive compared to the market. I worked with Maria and she was extremely helpful and nice person to work with. She was very patient in explaining and changing the quotes several times based on my questions and requirements. Very pleased with overall experience and quality of the work.
A+ customer service. I am a designer, but I was looking for my own home. We were 4 weeks behind schedule on our kitchen and had to get counters installed right away. I normally dislike working with prefab places, but I didn’t really have a choice because I needed them asap. I called, Helen sent me pictures of everything they had in my color range. I sent my husband to look at my 2 choices, she even called to make sure he was making the right decision. There service was way better then I expect from prefab shops and the pricing was exactly what they claimed. When I went to Troy Marble, the slab price changed 3 times in a week, so this is important to note.
I think they would be great for homeowners, because the staff is helpful and not pushy. I have to say ,they have a really impressive selection too. I was surprised by the amount of choices and sizes. Overall, they are reliable, honest and helpful. Especially important during a stressful remodel.
Description Of Work:
We had used Artistic Stone Kitchen and Bath Inc. We selected granites from them for our kitchen countertop. They did the tiling too.
They were great, we thought they were very good. The field representer, she was very helpful and that communication was very good, if there was something that didn’t work out or whatever, they were good about contacting them. Overall, it was the best, we compared several places so we started with them initially and then I’ve gone back to them. They were all just great.
