Let’s go to our first project. Here you’ll see a gorgeous honed black granite on the large kitchen island. A natural honed black granite is typically grayish… not dark black. When it gets wet, or a color-enhancing sealer is applied, then it is black just like when polished, except not a shiny finish. Most granite countertops are smooth and shiny; honed has a matte sheen to it. A softer honed finish is particularly popular among homeowners wanting an aged or casual look – it’s creates a modern and contemporary feeling to your kitchen. .
In the master bath we did Crema Marvil Marble for the countertops with a honey onyx backsplash. Crema Marvil is a classic cream marble with tan undertones. The product is ideally suited for indoor bathroom and kitchen applications, such as backsplashes, flooring, and countertops. The girls’ bathroom vanity is Cambria Snowden White; and elegantly simple design gleaming and crisp with tiny flecks of gray and tan. The lower level wet bar showcases Zodiaq Chestnut quartz.
Our second project in this Home Ideas 2010 show takes us to a kitchen remodel. The customer wanted to remove her laminate countertops and replace them with Cambria Nottingham. Several months after replacing the countertops she decided to update her fireplace surround and chose to replace the wood with Nottingham as well to tie both the kitchen and fireplace together. It’s a beautiful statement when you visit her home.
