    Can you please tell me the name and color of the dark granite on perimeter of kitchen? Also, is that quartz or marble on the island? Beautiful!

    We selected a pure white quartz from Hans Stone. We looked at several white quartz materials and this particular one looked best, in our opinion, with the back splash and cabinetry. It has not been installed yet...just a few more weeks!

    I had honed marble in my previous kitchen. Loved the look but hated how it marked! Don't let anything acidic near it....takes the finish right off...not to mention water marks. I doubt if anyone but me noticed because it totally sold my house!

    The shelf is mounted over the backsplash tile.
  • sbrickles

    The steel shelves from Danver are "floating" shelves so there is no mounting visible

    Denise I was wondering where you got your cabinets? I saw your kitchen on a different post and was trying to figure out how to contact you. I'm trying to buy white shaker style cabinets and everything I'm finding is off white. Are yours off white (not cream!) or our they just white? my mom keeps telling me that ask these pictures I'm finding probably really have off white cabinets even though they look white. I think she's wrong but I'm willing to be proven wrong. thanks!
  • sbrickles

    The pendants are 33" above the counter.

    I have plenty of etchings - just no stains. We just consider the etch spots as "patina" that's developing over time. Only way to prevent etching on marble is to have it treated with a special coating (not regular sealant). claims theirs works, but I can't vouch for it.
  • Mosimo Mason

    Yea Marble damages so easily. Too high maintenance. Wish I could get the look in silestone

    I am thinking of using these lights over my island but am having trouble finding a fixture that would coordinate to go over my nearby kitchen table. I don't want it too industrial looking.

    It is not a question of protection as much as it is one of ease of maintenance.

    Marble is a calcium based stone and will etch when exposed to acids. Remember in chemistry class when you added vinegar to the bicarb and had the "volcano" happen? Same thing happens when any acid hits a marble. The calcium reacts with the acid and dissolves. That is the cause of the "water rings" that people see when looking at a piece of polished marble in the reflection of the light.

    These are not stains, but rather areas where the top layer of the marble got "eaten off" by the acid. Unfortunately there is no sealer that will stop the etching from happening.

    The honed finish - while not preventing the damage, hides it way better than a polished surface would, making maintenance of your marble tops easier. Besides - honed marble is softer looking and visually more pleasing, in my opinion!

    We would call the island stone Calacatta marble. There are a lot of pros and cons to marble in the kitchen to type in this post, but if you're looking for low maintenance, they probably aren't for your kitchen. There are some Quartz materials that might work for you, see Caesarstone or Silestone for example, but they do not truly replicate marble. Email me at for some thoughts.

    Thank you, Granite Grannies! My countertop guy said the same, no support up to 12" - but I was afraid, how strong can marble hold (I have Imperial Danby along with two kids, 5 & 7). I will have frameless cabinets so there is no space for corbells. I asked/begged them to give me brackets. Your timely answer helped me, thank you so much!
  • S

    May I follow up on that and ask how thick the marble is that is supported by the brackets?

    The cabinets were custom made by a local cabinetmaker, which we often do. the cost is the same or lower than thru a kitchen designer, and gives you more control, but you have to know what you want.

    This kitchen truly is beautiful!. What color white are the cabinets painted? Do you know what hood this is over the range, it's so pretty with the lights underneath and the shelf matches perfectly under it.

    Hi - the knobs are 1 1/4". I have different sizes of the Bistro pulls -- most are 4", but it depends on the width of your drawers. For the desk drawers I used 3" pulls, and for the false drawer in front of the island prep sink I used the largest size which works great for hanging a dish towel. Personally I like the mix of satin and shiny metal finishes throughout the kitchen. Most things are satin, but there are polished chrome accents everywhere, from the knob rings on the range, to the tea kettle and pots, etc. The sink fixtures were less expensive in polished chrome, and it's also a more durable finish vs. brushed/satin nickel. (Note: the pendants are in a satin nickel finish, but all satin/brushed finishes are a little different. Another reason to not worry about matching finishes perfectly.)

                                                Trend No. 8: White EverythingWhat the pros say. The all-white trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, to some pros’ dismay. “You’re spending all this money for cabinets and all this money for countertops and everything else, and when everything is white nothing stands out,” McAlary says. Harper says if her clients are leaning toward a white-on-white look, her team will typically suggest adding tile or backsplash that makes the space a little more dynamic and unique — an approach she expects to see more of going forward.What homeowners say. White still tops remodeling homeowners’ favorites list when it comes to cabinets and backsplashes, and it narrowly trails gray in wall color preference, according to the Kitchen Trends Study.What saved Houzz photos say. Survey-taking homeowners and pros say all-white everything is still the most common choice in practice, but when Houzz users are planning or daydreaming about their next projects as they’re scrolling through photos on the site, it’s mostly shades of blue and gray they covet. Could that mean white kitchens might get knocked from their popularity throne in the next few years? Getting the low-key look. White is classic and crisp, and it works with all kinds of kitchen styles. White countertops paired with either white upper or lower cabinets or a white backsplash leave room to break things up with a gray island, black countertops or another colorful accent.Getting the full-out look.

                                                A shelf can also be installed below the hood for a distinct look, such as the stainless steel hood with coordinating shelf below seen here. This provides a handy surface to set frequently used items.Tip: This shelf is set 25” above the cooktop and 11.5” from the bottom of the hood, and the homeowner notes that the shelf does block some light from reaching the back burners. Due to the power of the fan however, the shelf does not impede with ventilation. These would be issues to consider if opting for a similar setup.

                                                If you prefer to direct the eye toward your stove, try a range shelf. You have the option to furnish it with decorations or store your herbs, oils and spices for quick grabbing.

                                                A branch in blossom needs no other adornment. Blossoming branches are sculptural and fresh and colorful all on their own, and they are right at home with home styles from French country to Japanese modern.

                                                Bring in spring branches. If you have blooming branches right outside your door, by all means clip some and bring them in. Displayed in a large vase or jar, they can last for months. Even if it will be a while before flowers appear, branches with green buds or leaves can make a lovely arrangement.
