The best way to shop for granite is to find a local fabricator (installer) you trust, then have them send you to their preferred suppliers to choose your slabs.

I've never specified cutting a paint color...I don't know how they'd control the match from one order to the next...must be a builder thing. Just keep in mind, photos will never represent the color of what is actually on the wall. Good luck.

Granite doesn't really have much of an issue with scratching, whether it has a honed or polished finish. You care for both finishes the same way. Clean it only with your granite cleaner and seal the countertops approximately once a year. Black granite is very hard, so it's practically indestructible.

Stunning work, Garrison Hullinger Interior Design! That ceiling is gorgeous!

Granite with all finishes is still susceptible of taking on stains (e.g. oils, etc)...you should speak with your fabricator to ensure you are getting the right granite and finish for your space.

Thanks so much for your help! Do you think I could use a 3x6 white ceramic tile instead of porcelain and obtain the same look?? Also, did you use a marble trim piece to transition to the smaller tiles?? Thanks again. I really appreciate your feedback.

Can I ask what is the producer of the oven (on the right)? For Europe it's Smeg, Ilve - and Restart as the higher level of Ilve - something like that. The oven looks almost like Restart)

wondering what is on the other side of this kitchen? You have starting at the bay of 2 windows: a dining area, 2 islands, then what beyond the island with the sink in it? A family room perhaps? what is on the wall opposite the stove?
I am planning to open my kitchen like this and would love to see the blueprint of this home.

Seems like different regions have different names for the stone finishes. If you search for antique finish on granite you might find close up photos that you can then compare to the 'leathered' finish and that might answer your question. Good luck.

The charm of this space, to me, is having all that light flooding in through the big windows. Add in white cabinets and dark countertops, interesting light fixtures, and it's a winner. Just decrease the scale of things and it can be yours. Take the parts that caught your eye and go for it, but on a smaller scale.

Each person is drawn to different components of the room. Take a look at this side area of the same kitchen and made it will help you in starting the process of shrinking this space down to a size you can have in your own home.

Thanks for your comments, this award winning home is a wonderful pride for the family living in it as well. We used 5" and 7" width oak flooring throughout the home. As for obtaining a dark stain on the oak floors like this home it is best to work with your contractor, whether selecting a prefinish product or a stain in place (like this project). There are a lot of steps to achieve this look and best discussed with a professional in your regional area...or you could end up like this family: http://www.flickr.com/photos/94693506@N00/687965115/

Brilliant! Lighting & Design
Proper scale, proportion, and relationships is about much more than just the quantity of lights and size of the island.
Please consider the various ways the island will be used and the quality of light they require, ceiling height, overall room size, whether or not the room is open to other spaces, where else can the lights / island be seen from, relationship to other furniture / cabinetry / lighting in the space, etc. before making a decision.
IMO, just on the facts presented here so far, I'd go with 3 @ 14".

Hi. What do you mean by "took crown of the cabinets to 7'. I'm getting ready to order Dynasty by Omega cabinets and can't decide between (wall cabinet)1- 39"L x 36"H or 2- 27"butt door &13" x 36"H for a three door look. Shaker syle door with 2" crown. I have a galley kitchen. 36" wolf hood will be next to this wall cabinet. I will be removing soffit and after placement of 36"Height cabinets I will have about 21" to 22" (not 18") from granite to under wall cabinet (the hubby wants this space for a tall Vitamix blender about 20.5" ) Please tell me if this will look nice. I welcome all your suggestions. Thank you in advance. This is so stressful.

Hi Letitia! I took your advice and went for it. We had custom built our drawer microwave in the island. It looks and works great. We bought the Sharp brand, as it handle matched our refrigerator. It is very easy to clean. The open/close button works really well. My cup of coffee spills only if I manually open the drawer. That is typically when I am trying to rush and being impatient.

Thanks so much Texie...so glad I got the 'love' tag!

Yes these are custom built for the client. We kept things really clean looking in the home. We had the cabinet shop make the doors for an inset look. We also opted to not have mullions on the cabinet doors since the transoms in the doorways would be enough visual appeal. Hope that helps!

The countertops are cambrian black granite...we then had an antiquing finish applied to the granite. Some of the fabrication shops call it 'leathering' as well. Check out this site for an explanation of leather granite finish: http://www.percocomarble.com/finishes.php

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 9 Ideas Coming to a Kitchen Near You
3. Soft sheen instead of super shine. Leathered, honed or flamed granite offers a low sheen, and the texture feels good under your hands. These finishes are outpacing highly polished surfaces in popularity.
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Design a Kitchen Island
6. Do you need a designer? It depends. Islands are often the main gathering and work spot in the kitchen, so a lot of thought goes into them. "Anyone with a good sense of proportion and who takes care in planning for all the proposed uses can figure this out," says Ahmann. "But that's not everyone. A designer or architect can help in working this out, especially when related to more than just a working kitchen." Kitchen Workbook: How to Remodel Your Kitchen
Maintenance: Limit routine care to a soft cloth and warm water or cleansers made specifically for granite. You'll want to seal your slab every year or two with an impregnating water-based sealer made for granite.Special considerations: You might have heard questions about radon content in granite. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that there is little or no health threat from granite counters, due to their relatively low radon content.

The open floor area around the island also requires some calculation. Ahmann suggests about 3 feet of floor space on the ends of the island. The working sides of an island should have 42 inches of space as a minimum, but more than 5 feet usually isn't necessary. The entertaining and eating side of the island is usually determined by the adjacent space — a dining room or living room — if there is one.
