    Was the question answered on what the size of the island is? I saw the question, but couldn't find an answer.

  • HU-705500790

    what are the dimensions of the island and length of counter with range?

This is a gorgeous kitchen! Would you please share the name of the counter materials?

  • FourFt11

    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!

What is the counter material called

  • kbangs
    Love the color and look of the Pietra Cardosa, especially against the white cabinetry.
    How does it hold up with kids and the inevitable spills?
    I am trying to decide between the Jet Mist granite and the Pietra Cardosa.

  • erinblackhurst1
    Your wood floor looks fabulous, but if you were to do a tile floor instead, what color/style of tile would you recommend that would still look good with all the cabinetry, countertops, etc?
  • subeeskitchen
    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.

Could you tell me the brand and size of the range and hood? They look extremely functional.

    Range is a 48", 8-burner Blue Star -- very powerful but I love it. Unused burners make a great place to set hot pans from the oven. Hood is 48" ProLine with a powerful remote blower (blower is in the attic). I found the Danver stainless floating shelf online.

    Yes - custom-made is the way to go for a perfect fit. The fabric is Sunbrella outdoor fabric, so they clean up very easily (usually with just a damp sponge).

    what stone are the countertops

    • Joe Wirtz
      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!

      what are the two countertops?

      • subeeskitchen

        The island was Calacatta Gold marble. In my new kitchen I went with 2" thick Carrara marble (white with gray veining throughout) throughout. Love both, and both etch like crazy. After a year of etches, they flow together and become part of the patina. I do not intend to get them buffed out. Marble is NOT for everyone. See pictures on my blog ( "Kitchen Design" category): subeeskitchen.com

      • jesse108

        I've had polished Calacatta Gold for 7 years. It was sealed during installation so I have not had any issues with staining, but it etches very easily. If you leave a glass on it with a little water on the bottom, it leaves a ring. You cannot put anything hot on it. I put a very hot cup of tea on mine and it left a ring. It chips fairly easily around the edges and sink cut outs. It's easy to hit the edge while washing pots and pans. I do think honed would be more forgiving as far as seeing the etch marks. I've never seen anything I like nearly as much as this marble, so would do it again, but honed. You need to consider how you and your family feel about the extra care of a marble top and how much imperfections like etching would bother you. Quartzite is a natural stone that has many characteristics of marble, but not sure what is currently available in white.
