You’ve just installed your table, but suddenly have a lot of granite leftovers and no idea what to do with them. Or perhaps you’re considering what to do with an old granite countertop you no longer want? 
While you could throw it away, we encourage you to sustainably make new use out of it. There are multiple uses of granite that you likely haven’t considered, and are actually day-to-day things useful for any household or business. 
Here’s our personalised list of what to do with leftover granite: 


Our list of DIY leftover granite ideas starts with a (back)splash. To match your countertop, why not consider a granite backsplash? It will give your kitchen a high-end look with its versatility. You can give your backsplash a brick-effect with the little leftover pieces or make use of large slabs. 
Backsplashes have many benefits, the main one being you won’t ruin your walls while cooking. However, like most materials, granite is porous and requires regular cleaning after each use. Simply wet a soft cloth with soapy water and wipe away stains for easy maintenance

House Number 

You can absolutely make use of those stubborn pieces of leftover granite in the form of a large house number. Not only will it add a touch of elegance to your exterior, it’ll help people locate your property (and we know everyone has struggled with this at least once). 

Dining Room Features 

Still don’t know what to do with leftover granite? If you only have tiny bits of granite leftovers to work with, consider a variety of new dining room tools instead of buying basic ones found in any old supermarket. 
We think these uses of granite speak for themselves: 
Chopping boards 
Whiskey stones 


Wondering what to do with granite leftovers too big for a plate, but too small for a table? Nothing says that you care more than having a granite plaque, whether this is in honour of a loved one or a sign of some form for your business. You don’t even need to shape it, just carve. 


Our DIY leftover granite ideas have come to an end with tabletops. You can turn large granite slabs into a fancy table or opt for something a little more unique and integrate your small, coloured granite leftovers into a coffee table.
