Elegant Oakton Kitchen Dazzles! traditional-kitchen
 

Elegant Oakton Kitchen Dazzles!

This classic, inviting kitchen marries dark and light, organic and industrial, and traditional with touches of modernity to yield a most functional, beautiful space. White Macauba mined quartzite countertops masquerade as marble without the worry of staining or maintenance. The TV cabinet at left complements the full overlay recessed panel cabinets of the kitchen with completely planar inset doors in Java stain on cherry wood.
All design, materials and contracting by Gardiner, and all construction and installation by his crews.

It is a glass and stone mosaic tile mix from Architectural Ceramics in Falls Church, VA. They have many such options with subtle shading variations to suit whatever your color scheme may be. Thank you for your interest!

It is quartzite… I should have written "quartzite" in that first posting. I would call Stone Source first, and ask for Tara Gardiner in the DC office at 202-265-5900; Tara sells product for SS into projects worldwide... and yes, Tara is my wife. Typically, Stone Source has the highest quality stone you will find. SS may not have any of this stone at any given time, however, but you should be able to find it one way or another. Be aware that with White Macauba, many lots will not be this white or this linear. This lot was fantastic.

I looked at white macoubas slabs, most have cracks. The seller says it is natural. Is this meant to be bought with cracks in the slab?

Hi. Thank you for your inquiry. I get so many inquiries, I can only answer the ones that are related to major aspects of jobs, like construction, major materials (cabinetry, flooring, countertops) or significant design questions. I apologize, but digging into my records for fabrics or paint colors or furniture manufacturers is more than I have the ability to do, and currently I do not have my staff address Houzz inquiries as they are just more than swamped with work. Sometimes I know the answer off-hand because I personally happen to remember a paint or finish, but most things require us to search records and I am sorry but we just cannot pull file records to accurately answer all the inquiries we get regarding specific minor items. Thank you for your consideration.

Yes. All stone, including granite, is porous. The porosity varies with the stone. Limestone and marble are extremely porous...water will run right through them, even if several inches thick, within seconds if not sealed. Granite and quartzite are less porous, but still very porous unless sealed. No sealant is 100%. There will always be a risk of staining. White quartzites can be somewhat more chemically reactive than others, as they often contain minerals that might be more apt to react with acidic or basic liquids than darker quartzites. Overall, however, quartzite and granite are pretty similar in overall performance against stains... they behave very similarly in kitchen applications.

Yes. It is White Macauba granite..."ma - coo - ba". It has marble-like striated veining. Best wishes.
