Rainforest Brown Granite Kitchen in Bowie, MD

Rainforest Brown Granite is a stunning, dramatic granite with varying shades of brown and gray. It is quarried in Rajasthan, India. These homeowners wanted a stone that would add an exotic element to their cozy, suburban 60's home. Throughout their home they had Japanese decorations from time spent living there. You can see the influences of the Japanese design aesthetic in the clean simple lines of the kitchen and dark cabinets and shadows. They balanced out the exuberant Rainforest Brown Granite with streamlined cabinetry and appliances. We used angular lines and a quiet half-bullnose edge on the granite to tie the cabinets and granite together. The granite full backsplash is bookmatched, which means the pattern runs across the decks (horizontals) and up the wall. Because Rainforest Brown Granite varies a great deal from month to month and slab to slab, make sure to choose your exact slab before you fabricator cuts it.

I have seen something similar at IKEA. I don't have the bar, but I bought the flat S hooks. They come in a pack of five. The rounded S hooks come in a pack of 10. They also sell magnetic knife strips. Just thinking ahead for you :)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

CompositionNot all granite slabs are actually granite. For countertops, "granite" is an umbrella term that includes several dense stones that are acid resistant, and rank 7 or 8 on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness. This Rainforest Brown is considered "serpentine," indicating a composition somewhere between granite and marble. Suppliers may categorize it as either of those two stones.

A few more pointers about working with your supplier and fabricator: •Shopping for stone counters early in your kitchen-remodel process can ensure optimization not only of your slab and money, but of the design potential of your slice of stone. A particularly lovely portion of your slab can be featured, or joints can be coordinated to reduce their appearance. •Similarly, ask to view the template process, where the fabricator lays out the countertop sections. You can ensure that your favorite part isn't omitted in the sink cutout and is instead featured in the center of the island. •When you find a slab you love, secure the purchase, because that slab is one of a kind. The picture : called Rainforest Brown " and is a cross between marble and granite.

"granite" = 7-8 on Mohs Scale this is "Rainforest Brown" serpentine(?) If this truly is serpentine, it is it hardness, not its composition, that is between granite and marble - its composition is very different from both
