subeeskitchen thank you so much for the information! I think i'll have it sealed like you did and live with it through the holidays (no better test that that time of year!) and if it drives me crazy then I can get the Clearstone in January. I have traveled all over Europe and my favorite hotel in Rome has carrara marble in the bathroom and I fell in love with it there. It is right next to the Roman Forum and I'm sure is very old, and it still looks beautiful! Thanks for the info and the encouragement to give it a try!

This kitchen is quite beautiful. If only I could afford the countertops. And I must say I am in love with the window seat.

Im sorry to bother you again, but I had an earlier post on a prep sink. I was able to extend the size of my island to better fit a prep sink, and now I am wondering what you would suggest as far as placement goes? the island will be about 4.5' wide and a little over 6' long. I will be placing the sink on the shorter width and was just wondering if it would be best to center it for balance or offset it in order to maximize prep space next to it?

That's old school thinking. Marble is the prettiest stone available and the problem associated with marble was solved years ago. Acid-etching is caused when acidic products come in contact with marble. Clearstone prevents anything acidic from coming in contact with the stone by coating it with a layer of protection - a coating. It's safe to use in a kitchen and provides at least a 15 year warranty. It can be either highly polished or honed look. Locate trained applicators at www.ClearstoneUSA.com. Now, go take a look at the beautiful marble choices out there!

Joychanter, you're right, it's technically a quartzite but when I have said that to some people in the past, they naturally think quartz, a man made material which it is not. I was told that a quartzite is technically a granite with a higher level of quartz in it. This one was on the higher price range, I'm not sure how it compared to marble because I didn't price that knowing I would be looking for every stain and etch mark. I negotiated the price down with my distributor and paid $6k total for two slabs which included install, plumbing hook up and ogee edge. I'm in the dc metro so prices tend to be a bit higher out here. Also, my white macaubus has more swirl pattern but some have very linear straight lines giving it a much more contemporary look. The base color of mine has a touch of gray as apposed to a clean white base on a gray veined marble. Good luck and keep us posted on your selection!

Any acid in direct contact w/the marble will etch it almost instantly: lemon juice, vinegar, etc. You can only see the etch marks if you look at the slab at almost eye level. I've got a lot now (not about to give up citrus!) so it's part of the patina. I love that about marble - it's "living". It's not for everyone, thought.

windows and cabinet near sink - I love you layout. I am in the process of designing a new build home and having trouble with a few areas and the kitchen is one of them. Having seen your photos, it sheds new light. Thanks so much. It is lovely by the way. Can you tell me how much counter space is between the range and the sink and on the other side of the sink? I notice there is a counter on this side of the range as well. Are you happy with that amount or is there more that can't be seen? Are there any other views of the room other that from behind the island ?(I saw it on the other photos of your home) Also, is there just the one window on the wall above the sink? What size is it? And would you change anything about the kitchen design? I know that is several ? for you to answer and you have answered so many--I would appreciate you time. If fact you may be the answer to a very stressful situation with my plans that I am having :) Oh one more thing, Is there an entrance to the kitchen from where the pic is taken? In my plan there is a door in this area from my gallery/ mudroom. I would love to see how yours is laid out any sketches anywhere? I am trying to decide if I can fit in a pantry somewhere. My kitchen is open to part of an entry to the stairs and bar area that leads to the great room. Thanks in advance! I will check out your blog too --I love to cook!!

There is a picture of the mudroom on this site (search for "subeeskitchen" and it should come up). Doesn't show much, though. The laundry alcove is to the left of the sink that's shown; to the right are cabinets, shelves, boot storage, etc. The pantry is in a hallway that connects the mudroom/laundry to the door we go in and out of most of the time. (Yes - ideally the mudroom would've been located off that door, but it didn't work with the old part of the house.) Right now I'm not planning to post additional photos on Houzz, though I may do a pantry feature on my blog at some point soon.

I have large (12x24) dark gray slate tiles in my mudroom and really like them. Belgian bluestone is a great look, but it's expensive and I don't know how it would hold up for kitchen usage (etching from acids, etc. ) Maybe there's a dark brown or charcoal veining in your countertops that could be tied into a floor color? Best bet is to get a bunch of samples from a tile showroom and see what you like best.

I agonized, lost sleep over this...45" is perfect in a modest kitchen, I suppose if you have a very large kitchen you could go wider than that. We ended up doing ours 46" and is is great too, but our old kitchen in a big "u" required that extra step and it was tiring. This is incredibly important to your future happiness in working in your kitchen. I suggest you lay some card tables out and mimic working in the kitchen, from sink to counter to fridge etc. and see how it feels. My kitchen man with 30 years experience to,d me 42 to 48, yet I still agonized between 45 and 46, but that's just my OCD side I think..our whole kitchen is 13.5x24, with the island down the middle, and it looks quite proportionate with the 46" separation. Good luck!

I love the smaller ones. (Ours are not LED, but they're on a dimmer switch to save a little electricity). There are some comments on other Houzz questions regarding the lights & placement. Ours are spaced about 4' apart on centers. (You'll need more of the smaller ones to light the same area, and the smaller ones cost more, but I think they're worth it.)

Hi - I'm pretty sure the stain we used was Minwax Puritan Pine. The wood is fir, which had a redish cast. (We were trying to match the old fir floors throughout the rest of the house.)

If that is the sinks are close together, it looks in your case they are, I would say they should match if you want to avoid a busy or messy look. Same material, though not necessarily same size or shape.

I loved this kitchen and took the pic in to my countertop supplier and installer. I saw a few and everyone of them, I mean -100% said no way to marble in the kitchen, and even worse feedback I received was no honed marble. It too porous, soft and stains no matter what sealant you use. Unless you have lots of money to have it polished out every six months. Again polished out if you've polished it. It was a big disappointment but I've got a kitchen that's used by kids, teens and a husband I just couldn't chance putting so much $$$ into a kitchen I couldn't really "use". Almost like those couches that grandma had with plastic on them. It's just not a material that anyone I spoke to who installed as well as fixed problems with these types of countertops, hmm plastic on the counters?? Guess it could work lol. Hope your kitchen has stayed looking lovely. I went with a quartz (not man made) for my island. Honed granite, which I was warned will have fingerprint issues ect...) I decided I could still work with it. Hope I have no troubles! Lol

The cabinets were custom-built, but are a traditional inset/simple panel design. A long island has benefits (work space, storage) if it works with the scale of the room(s), but it can also make it a little hard to get from one side to the other.

I do not know if anyone makes a porcelain version, it is not a popular or trendy wood now. However, the fir is beautiful, and wears fine if you don't have dogs and walk around barefoot.

This type of bench seating is always custom built to fit the particular space. We had a carpenter built it, with stock drawers. The cushions are custom made by a local upholstery shop, they also must be measured to fit exactly.

This sort of seating is always built in place by a carpenter, they usually buy the drawer fronts, but the seat must be fit precisely to the bay window. A local upholsterer made the cushions to fit the seat.

8. Reduce open shelving. Open shelving is a great canvas for displaying your favorite decor and cookware, whether it’s on a wall, on an island or at the end of cabinets. But it takes more time and effort to ensure that these spaces are dusted and organized. The upkeep can become overwhelming along with your daily tasks.To shorten your to-do list, place your decor on necessary surfaces like dining tables and countertops instead of unnecessary cabinet shelves. You can also use pillows, chairs, bar stools and lighting as decorative touches.
