We offer a wide selection of stones and materials for your next kitchen renovation project:
If you're in need of a professional, fast, reliable company for kitchen cabinets, countertops, and remodels, look no further than Stone City Kitchen & Bath.
When it comes to kitchen remodeling in Daniel Island, SC installing new kitchen cabinets is a great idea. If you're already upgrading or replacing your kitchen countertops, having new cabinets that match the aesthetics of your kitchen makeover is a no-brainer.
At Stone City KB, we believe that everyone deserves an elegant, versatile kitchen with stunning cabinetry. That's why our team will work closely with you to discover the material, texture, and style of cabinets you're craving. Once we do, we handle all the heavy lifting, including cabinet design and installation in your home.
So, why should you install new kitchen cabinets alongside your countertops? Here are just a few reasons:
Many customers install new kitchen cabinets because they're already remodeling their kitchen and need their cabinets to match the aesthetics of their updated space. Do you want your kitchen to feel more open and airier? Do you have specific lifestyle requirements that necessitate a particular cabinet material? Our kitchen cabinet experts can help you find the perfect cabinet setup for your needs.
Having a uniform aesthetic throughout your kitchen and home is important. But from a practical standpoint, new kitchen cabinets often mean more kitchen storage. That's a big deal for families, especially when younger children are involved. If you find that your countertops are magnets for clutter, new cabinetry can help remove the mess and stress less. The more storage your kitchen has, the easier it will be to use your kitchen for cooking and entertaining.
Take a few moments and check out the bones of your current cabinets. Low-quality, cheap cabinets are often a turnoff for potential buyers. If you plan on selling your home in the next few years, one of the best ways to boost resale value is with new cabinetry.
Is it a pain in the side to cook in your kitchen? Whether it's due to clutter, design, or something else, many of our customers want new cabinets so that their kitchen is functional again. New cabinets give you more storage, as mentioned above, but they can also make your kitchen more functional, depending on design and remodeling preferences. If you love to cook for your family and get-togethers, investing in new kitchen cabinets can help you do more of what you love.
Whether you're looking to "wow" a new client or work colleague or just want to make your neighbors a little jealous, upgrading your kitchen cabinets is a great way to do so. Of course, first impressions have always mattered, but particularly so in real estate. When the time comes to sell your home, having custom cabinets and countertops in your kitchen can set you apart from other sellers.
Here at Stone City Kitchen & Bath, we specialize in custom kitchen countertops and cabinets designed especially for you. Whether you've been dreaming of traditional wood cabinets or need sleek, elegant granite countertops, we've got you covered.

Community Invited to help Homeless Neighbors during holidays
Community members looking to help out this holiday season are invited on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 to drive by One80 Place for its tenth annual Turkey and a $20 donation drive.
One80 Place is once again setting the tone for the holiday season by providing community members with a festive experience and chance to give back to its neighbors who need our help. The organization is asking individuals, families, and co-workers to collect and drop off monetary gifts, proteins (ham and turkey), and grocery or household store gift cards to help in the mission to end homelessness for those struggling in our community.
Every dollar collected will go directly to support the community kitchen, providing 16,000 meals and rescuing approximately 32,000 pounds of food this holiday season, feeding hundreds of clients and fuel their clients’ housing plans.
In 2021, the effort raised $51,000, 275 turkeys, and 117 grocery gift cards. One80 Place was able to prepare over 12,000 meals with the donations. Organizers hope to collect $75,000, 180 $20 grocery or household gift cards, along with turkeys, hams, and non-perishables. As the holidays approach, the air is colder, its darker longer, and individuals and families experiencing homelessness are faced with a brutal challenge - winter. On any given night, roughly 350 people in our community don’t have a permanent place to call home. With so many clients struggling as the colder months approach, the organization is having to help a lot more people with groceries and household essentials. Gift card donations will aide in this process.
Donating is easy; just visit One80 Place at 35 Walnut Street on Tuesday, November 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., roll down your window and donate your monetary contribution, gift card and/or turkey. Contributors will also have the chance to snap car-side selfies with local personalities, newscasters and sport mascots. For those that cannot come by on November 22, community members can pledge their support by buying a virtual turkey online or creating your own peer-to-peer fundraiser at one80place.org/donateturkey.

Some Smythe Park neighbors called him Big Al. The nearly 9-foot alligator was often spotted skimming the water or sunbathing on the shores of Smythe Lake. But he was harassed and fed by humans, prompting him to lose his fear of people and become a threat to public safety.
On Oct. 26, Big Al was removed from the lake and euthanized.
Rumors swarmed on social media. Residents asked why the gator had to be removed and why it wasn’t relocated to a less populated area. Some speculated the gator was put to rest prior to the popular Pumpkin Walk that attracts hundreds of families to the park.
“There was a huge misunderstanding that day,” said Ron Russell with Gator Getter Consultants, who had to evaluate and remove the alligator. “Daniel Island throws many events at Smythe Lake and they call us in to do gator watch. The goal is not to remove every gator for an event; that’s not what they want to do. This was an isolated event with an alligator that needed to be addressed.”
According to Chris Hamil, field operations manager for the Daniel Island Property Owners’ Association, an alligator was reported exhibiting concerning behavior for several days. A resident called the City of Charleston about an alligator that had followed them home and was underneath their car. The responding animal control officers removed the alligator and returned it to Smythe Lake. Several days later, the alligator was seen repeatedly swimming alongside the water’s edge near pedestrians.
“Generally, when this behavior occurs, it is an indication that the alligator has been fed and will begin to identify people as food or food sources,” Hamil said in an email. “Upon observing this abnormal behavior, I notified our alligator specialist who arrived the next morning.
The alligator exhibited the same behavior towards the specialist.”
Russell performs a series of tests to determine if an alligator has lost its fear of people and has become aggressive. Indicators include: swimming towards people instead of going away and hiding, moving towards a splash in the water thinking someone is feeding it and hanging out in heavy traffic areas.
“He demonstrated multiple times he was not intimidated by the presence of humans and he hissed at me and Chris Hamil,” Russell said. “I’m a pretty big guy and when I can walk up to an alligator and it decides to hold its ground and hiss at me in the water, that’s not a good sign.”
Under South Carolina state law, it is illegal to relocate an alligator. “If Daniel Island deems it a nuisance or anybody else deems it a nuisance, it doesn’t give you the right to take that nuisance somewhere else,” said Russell, citing the inherent dangers of an alligator that associates humans with food.
It is also illegal to feed or harass an alligator, which includes throwing objects at or taunting the animal in any way. An offender can be fined up to $150 and imprisoned for up to 30 days. Russell said if residents see someone feeding or harassing a gator, they should contact local law enforcement.
“Hold the parents accountable for their kids and hold the adults accountable for their actions,” Russell said. “Daniel Island has done a good job of putting out those bright yellow (warning) signs, but you can go to any park and there are more signs than people want to take the time to read.”
Alligators are a natural part of the Lowcountry environment and important to the balance of the ecosystem. They keep wild animal populations in balance and their burrows create habitats for fish and other aquatic life. They are very adaptable creatures that have lived for millions of years and can coexist peacefully with humans. Russell said alligators inherently fear people and prefer to be left alone.
“The biggest rule when it comes to wildlife is to respect them from a distance,” Russell said.
“If you see an alligator, go to the other side, keep your pets close to you on a leash, and always be aware of your surroundings, whether it’s alligators or snakes; give them their space.”
Russell was raised with a reverence for alligators. His father, the late Ronald Russell, was an alligator patrol agent for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources who started Gator Getter Consultants in 2012 to help manage gators that were losing habitat to increasing development and educate new residents about coexisting with the prehistoric reptiles.
“I never thought I’d grow up to love them, but they really are a fascinating and crucial animal to the ecosystem,” Russell said. “They’re extremely misunderstood.”
To report an alligator on private property, call DNR at 843-953-9856 or find a licensed wildlife control operator at dnr.sc.gov/wildlife/docs/nwco.pdf.

She’s a girl on a mission. And she couldn’t be more excited.
Daniel Island resident Elyse Gerding, 12, is the newest reporter for the popular series “Kids Say,” published weekly in The Daniel Island News. The column was put on hiatus in March 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and returned with Gerding at the helm in August of this year.
A student at Daniel Island School, Gerding is the second in her family to take on the role. Her older sister, Bryn, now 22, filled the post when she was in middle school. Each week, Gerding gets a question from Daniel Island News Editor Zach Giroux, based on the theme of that week’s paper and poses it to six different kids.
“I just like Kids Say altogether because it gives kids a chance to be in the newspaper and for some of them, it’s so sweet,” Gerding said. “They get so excited! They’re like ‘I’m gonna be famous!’”
Gerding often visits kid-friendly places on the island, such as Pirate Park, The Waterfront, and Publix, to collect her quotes. Most of her interviewees are more than happy to participate when they see her coming, especially the parents.
“A lot of the moms are like ‘Oh my gosh! I love that section! My kids are gonna be so happy!’” said Gerding, who typically interviews kids between the ages of 5-11, with some as young as 2 and 3.
And if she ever encounters a shy little one, Gerding finds a way to make them feel at ease.
“Sometimes when they’re shy I just go ‘High Five!’” said Gerding, holding her hand in the air. “Because when they’re done, it’s so sweet.”
All in all, serving as the Kids Say reporter has given Gerding more confidence, she said, and the experience can also be beneficial for those she interviews.
“It gives them an option to be more interactive with people,” Gerding explained. “… And it makes them feel so proud. I definitely think it boosts their happiness and excitement.”
As for her favorite question so far? Gerding pointed to one she posed recently – What’s your favorite Thanksgiving meal?
“Chicken nuggets!” she exclaimed, recalling one child’s response. “That is the cutest answer ever!”
Even though Gerding has only had the job for a few months, her reporting skills are already earning rave reviews.
“Elyse does a wonderful job as our Kids Say correspondent,” said Sue Detar, publisher/managing editor of The Daniel Island News. “She’s a real professional – she always meets deadline and brings genuine enthusiasm to the job.”
Kids Say debuted in the very first edition of The Daniel Island News, published on Oct. 30, 2003. At the time, the paper ran the column without photos, as they were still developing film and had not yet started using a digital camera.
“The island was still small and the neighborhood kids would come to my house and write out their answers on my kitchen counter,” Detar recalled. “Our first question was: What do you like about living on Daniel Island?”
The first to take on the role was Julia Miano, a college intern from Winthrop. After that, Detar and her children, freelance writers and the paper’s graphic artist handled the duties – until the first official Kids Say reporter, Lainey Beckler, was hired in 2007.
