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.

Beautiful space! How much counter space is there to the right of the prep sink? It looks like it's only a few - It looks like it's only a few inches, perhaps 3" or 4" to edge of counter. I'm planning on an island with the sink to one side (like this one). Prep sink is 17" x 17 " (exterior size) & needs at least a 21" cabinet. Should I use a 24" cabinet instead because that would leave about 4" to the edge of the counter? How much space should there to the edge of the counter? Thanks!

Hinges - Hi! This is my inspiration photo and my remodel has just begun. I just got in the cabinets in decorator's white (love) and the cambrian black granite antiqued (again, love). I also have them as inset with concealed hinges. My question is that for the few glass doors that I have, you can see the hinges at an angle - is that the same for the glass doors in the picture? I'm sure once I put things in they will be less noticeable but I just wanted to be sure I didn't order something wrong. Are your hinges visible from an angle on your glass doors?

It's not overloaded with high wall cupborads like some kitchens I saw there on the site. I saw not them all but I wonder why in all af them (classical, neoclassical, close to classical designed) are always used "modern designed", strictly square formed appliances? I don't even talk about the colour of ovens, hobs and so on (there's always a colour of stainless steel or chrome) - just about the form for the beginning. In other words why "classical formed" appliances are not in use? Maybe I saw too little?

I think bathrooms are the easiest place to isolate your hardware/lighting finishes. Traditionally a nickel or chrome would have been used in the bathrooms even if brass was used in other areas of a home. We find it a pleasant aesthetic to mix finishes throughout the home, creating some continuity with all door handles/hinges the same finish, all faucets/accessories the same finish and mixing the lighting when appropriate.

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".

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.

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!

Sorry, I never did actually answer your question. I would have made it into more of an L-shaped island so the kid's chairs could be lined up like an old soda fountain shop.

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

Funny, I was just looking at this kitchen. Please tell me about the hardwood floor. Does your client like the leathered finish on the granite...any feedback? I'm going to get my granite for my island leathered as well and I'm curious about what it's like to live with.

did you pull up the countertop granite in a 4"backsplash? and may I ask why? I can't decide if I should do the 4" or 3" or not. I will have white shaker cabs and AB honed countertops. Am considering leaving painted back walls, to keep it simple in a small kitchen.

Really beautiful choices. I love how the window coverings bring in color, would you know the make/style? Also, Can you tell me the color/maker of the 3x6 subway tile? thanks so much!

I love the wall colors in this kitchen! Does Woodlawn Blue present more blue than green when applied? In this picture it looks like the most fabulous blue but the sample is more green.

The finish is a custom mix to create the ebonized look.

Can you please advise on the color of the cabinets? I've been advised that a soft white is easier on the eyes, but it doesn't go with any of the marble slabs I like as it looks yellow. An arctic white matches, but I'm concerned it may look too stark and bright. I love this kitchen and the cabinets look pretty much like the arctic white to me. Thanks!

I use Benjamin Moore's White Dove quite a bit when I'm looking for a softer white. Farrow and Ball has a color called Wimborne White as well.

We used Benjamin Moore's Decorators White on the cabinets and trim...I love Navajo White OC-95 for a softer look.

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. You can read more here.More: 10 Great Alternatives to Granite Kitchen Counters
