What kind of flooring is that? Bamboo?

Oak & Broad
The grain pattern looks a lot like bamboo. I think you may be right.

What is the name of that granite? - Does it have green/brown running through it?

Hi there,

“Silver Pearl” granite from Marble Art Canada is similar to this.

Hi, I have been looking at Cosmic Black for a small kitchen but feel it might be too dark. This Silver Pearl has more of the look I am searching for. I would like to have a Granite counter that is the opposite of marble, grey with white. Do you think that this would be a better option. Oh, the new cabinets will be a natural cherry.

Hi there,

I am unsure what you asking about? What type of website do you run? Where can I find it?

How is the granite overhang in the island being supported?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Doesn't the amount it can be unsupported depend on the thickness (or weight) of the granite?

Granite Grannies
Basically, yes. Granite comes in standard 3 centimeter thick slabs so 12 inches is a good rule of thumb.

Hi there, its actually a vaulted ceiling towards a window in the wall. If you look closely at the image you can actually see the window sill of the window.

Hope that helps,

Granite counter tops and back splash all the same. Is this look dated? - I've had my kitchen for 13 years now and I have all the same granite for counter top, island, and back splash. I thought this was a look gone by. Is it still considered fashionable? I'm trying to figure out what to do to update my kitchen.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Thank you! You just saved me a lot of money in changes. New stools and pendent light fixtures will have to be enough.
