Slate House

New Kitchen for a home in northern New Jersey. Notable is the extensive use of White Oak and Zebra wood paneling and trim, Arts and Crafts detailing. Most notable are the concrete counter tops fabricated by J & M Lifestyles of Randolph, New Jersey, as well as the stainless steel back splash surfaces. We worked with Papyrus Home Designs for the Interior Finishes and furnishings.

Counters? - Great counters... Concrete? What color/finish and more importantly -- how does it hold up against spills and stains? Thanks!

Not all concrete is created equal.

A bag mix from the local hardware store will not give you a high quality counter (or anything else) that will hold up to staining.

Make sure you find an experienced fabricator. They will have a concrete mix design vastly superior to anything you can buy in a bag. Along with that they will have the up to date knowledge of sealer options. J & M Lifestyles did these counters. They have earned an excellent reputation in our industry.

You can have almost any color with concrete these days. Most shops will have a selection of standard colors as well as the ability to provide color matching to Benjamin Moore's standard palette.

This wild wood cabinet looks good with a very plain floor. Otherwise, I think it would be too busy

we like the coloring of the cabinets, just not the spripey look on the end of the island. Like the wood color with the counter tops. Also like the translucent glass in some of the doors.
