    Marble has been used and enjoyed in kitchens by Europeans for thousands of years. The granite folks would like you to think that their product is superior. Not so. Unless you are an oink-oink pig (spill red wine, leave it there for a month) staining will happen so rarely that it shouldn't be a factor in the decision.

      If a Viking oven's big-honkin' red knobs look good in that kitchen, then I think SS handles on a Kitchen Aid or Electrolux (what we have) will look just fine. Any time you do SS, they're going to look somewhat industrial. Until they start making appliances with oil rubbed bronze finishes, I think we're all stuck with the somewhat utilitarian look of SS, white, and black (unless you integrate into cabinetry completely).

      I am thinking about a Moen Lindley faucet for my main sink in Spot Stainless, but need a smaller prep sink faucet to go with my Classic Prestige Franke sink. I'd love a pull down faucet but nothing as large at the Lindley faucet, since the faucet will be set to the right of the sink. In terms of matching, should I pick a smaller lower arc Moen faucet? To be honest, I'm not loving any of them really. Should I look into another manufacturer and risk not a perfect match? Appreciate any advice, thanks!

      I'm sorry I don't work in the Fresno area. It's really hard to budget not knowing what all would be new and how much plumbing, electrical, etc that you'd need done...The backsplash tile was about $30 a sf, Carrara Marble is about $15 sf, New cabinets can really vary if they are custom or big box...You should have a designer draw something up and then get it priced through 3 contractors.

      The color of the floor is gorgeous. I just currently have maple floors (aged to a more yellow color) and want to do a kitchen with white cabinets, white marble countertops, and a similar backsplash to the photo, but don't know if my current floor would work with it..

      @24680 If you have to keep your floor, i'd say the island could be a different color as a foil to all the white. You could pick up the vein color in the marble...a slate blue would look nice.

    I need to figure out the edge of my marble counter - is this edge a double bullnose? e

    - please tell me what this edge is and what is recommended for a modern kitchen.

    • karenmommy
      thanks you're prob. right but i saw what a marble site called "double bullnose" and it was curved at both top and bottom but pretty straight inbetween. so a rounded straight edge really. I will look at it in a showroom to be sure. would a modern kitchen have a "regular" edge - or squared vertical edge?
    • PRO
      Renaissance Kitchen and Home
      You are correct,I would double check with the showroom again, some showrooms have their own specific names for their edge profiles.Depending on what you consider modern really is controlled by the other elements in the room. For example if all the cabinet doors have a simple or square edge and square details then I would suggest a square edge. If your kitchen has a lot of curved elements than I would suggest you do a rounded edge profile. In certain projects we have done the client wants the countertops to be the star of the show, so we would have them fabricated with a very decorative edge. But if the kitchen has a lot of other elements going on then I would suggest that the counter edge treatment be more subdued not to complete with everything else.

      Hope this helps.

Only negative is a 3-4 week lead time so I will need to order it soon. This kitchen picture is very similar to my kitchen in progress on a 1960 ranch style makeover in Austin.
