Need help selecting a granite counter top.
May 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We have gutted and built a new Ikea kitchen. I have submitted the original kitchen to this site before and received very informative and creative suggestions which helped us. We are now in the process of deciding on a granite counter top. I do like something with some reflective qualities as we have a lot of light. We have considered...emerald pearl and cosmic black. I also once saw a quartz counter top in Madrid that was black with reflective mirror ... which I like, but my husband is not too crazy about. I am thinking black in a nice contrast with the brown ceiling, hardwood floor and cabinets. I have included one before pic and the rest the new kitchen from different angles to give you an idea of the layout. The counter top will go on the entire peninsula. The cook top will be on the peninsula as well. I would like a 'zen' contemporary look. I look forward to your suggestions. Thank-you in advance for your time and efforts in assisting us.
