Love the counter top on the island. What did you use.? - What material is used on the island counter and the charging station by the back door and are you happy with your choices?

Thank you! The island Countertop is Walker Zanger Sienna Silver Travertine.

The drop zone/charging station countertops are Radianz, Everest White.

Travertine is a very beautiful choice, but like all natural stones it is very porous and easily stains. It requires regular sealing to fill in the pores in order to repel spills on the surface. If you are looking for a low maintenance countertop, travertine is not the right choice!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The homeowner wanted the kitchen to have clearer access to the outdoors, so Renewal Design-Build added two new entries and exits. The team made sure that the doorways were separated from the main part of the kitchen to control traffic flow. A drop-off station for keys and other odds and ends keeps items from filtering into the kitchen. Around the corner, shallow but wide pantries make the most out of limited space.
