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.

Not 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.
