    I have Bianco Macubus quartzite in my own kitchen (featured in my profile) and have two small children and we cook and entertain a lot. It has taken a beating and still looks new. No staining or etching. Highly recommend testing out a sample with lemon juice, oil, red wine, etc. before making a final decision. Good luck!

    We had "super white Quartzite" installed in June 2016 and although I love it, whether due to fabrication error or natural softness it has cracked SIGNIFICANTLY to the point dirt and bacteria are being caught in these cracks. Come to find out it's really dolomite (marble). The cracks run the entire length of one of our islands & a giant piece next to our range. Heartbroken to rip all of it out and switch to porcelain slabs instead before even living with it or using it. (Construction nightmare has delayed our move-in date to mid January) Sorry pictures don't show the cracks. Video is best. Just beware

    Hi Lijusti, the material is called Wicked White Quartzite for both the countertops and back splash.

    You are correct, the counter top has a honed finish.

    Beautiful! What is the thickness of the island (mitred) countertop?

  • PRO
    Morningstar Stone & Tile

    The slab is 3cm thick and we built the mitered edge to 2.5". This gives the appearance of a much thicker island

    Can't tell for sure but that looks like a wider plank [maybe 6"-7"] African Mahogany/Sapele in a natural finish on the floors. Beautiful! Amazon Wood Floors out of CA makes a great product like this.

    We do not exceed 10" on an overhang with natural material. It really is material specific, so your fabricator is spot on with their recommendation. The island is 86" x 47". Hope this helps!

    Thanks so much for your question. The material is Wicked White Quartzite. This is the same material that is on the counters. It does look pretty amazing.

    Hi Laura. First thank you for checking out our work. Unfortunately we handled the counter tops and back splash only. Another contractor took care of the painting. So we don't know what they used.

    Thanks for your question. The counter tops are Wicked White Quartzite. Has a very similar look to marble, but not as likely to etch and stain.

    Thank you for checking out our photos. We provided the Artisan sink. Unfortunately the client supplied the faucet and we do not know the make and model.

    Thanks so much for your question and kind words. With
    regards to Super White Extra this is a dolomite, which is a more resistant form
    of marble. That said it will still etch, but not as much as a Calacatta
    marble. Macaubus is a true Quartzite and
    is much more resistant to staining and etching. You can find all of these
    materials here at our showroom in Topsham Maine.

    Thanks so much for your question. While we only worked on the countertops, island and backsplash we can tell you the cabinet doors are actually glass and not mirrored. Just a wonderful kitchen.
