Super White Quartzite Kitchen in Calvert County, MD

This stone is Super White. It's actually a close relative of granite, quartzite (a natural stone not to be confused with the man-made "quartz"). The homeowner wanted marble in their kitchen, but they wanted the no-hassle care and durability of granite. We searched the market and found this stone, which is actually harder than granite. The home look out on the water in Calvert County and sits on several hundred acres. The house is a new build, but the homeowners wanted a classic look that would complement the historic local setting. The edge profile on the stone is ogee.

Unfortunately, the floors were already in when we did the countertops. Maybe some more floor-savvy houzzers can take a guess?

Sorry, we just did the countertops, but I'd estimate it's about 15 by 15.

No backsplash behind sink faucet! I like the look, but is it a potential area that could be damaged by water splashing on the wood? Thanks for your help!

The wood floors anchor the room, but the fresh white paint and Super White Granite give it a French country feel that ties in well to the hundreds of acres of lush farmland that the house sits on.
