Love your countertops-what thickness are they and are they marble?

  • jferrycapecod

    Will a honed marble not show etching?

  • PRO
    Liz Schupanitz Designs

    It will still show etching but it's not as noticeable as etching on polished marble. It depends on the light in your kitchen. I've put it in kitchens where you have to look closely to find the etching and others where it's in front of a large window coming down to the countertop and it's pretty noticeable.

    It will stain and etch, but the etching isn't as noticeable if it is honed. I recommend trying to get a hold of a chunk of the marble or even a marble tile to test so that you can see what etching or staining will look like. If you've looked into other countertops, know the pros and cons and still can't give it up, then you may be a good candidate for marble, but that's difficult to know without seeing your home and how you live. Do you like to cook? Do you have kids, big or small who will leave a spill of kool-aid on the counter for hours before you catch it? I've heard that story - the homeowner still loves her marble.

    From the homeowners I've talked to that love their marble, they see the staining and etching as part of the character of the stone. My thought is that the first stain or spot feels like a crisis but then becomes part of the fabric of the stone, something you don't even notice. What you do notice is the overall look and feel, and there's nothing like it.

    Hi Nancy,

    I don't have anything that comes to mind. It would require some time to look through some color decks and I'm short on time lately. Your best bet for advice would be to ask the question in the forum.

    Hi Carolyn, the pricing varies according to fabric and finishes chosen. You can look up the Hickory Chair Madigan stool on their website and ask for pricing from an interior designer or furniture retailer in your area that carries Hickory Chair. I didn't provide the stools, so I don't even know a ballpark price.

    Thanks so much for your interest and your very nice compliments. I have permission from my client to share the specific information, so please send me a message.

    As far as the custom hood is concerned, I don't know the exact cost of the hood since it's part of the overall cost. A custom wood hood is usually more expensive than a stainless hood that has the blower and motor built in, but not prohibitively so unless you have found a very inexpensive hood. The overall price depends on the blower liner you choose and the cabinetmaker or manufacturer that is providing the wood surround. The hood is no different than a piece of cabinetry and the more ornate you make it, the more expensive it will be. This one is pretty simple. Good luck with your plan - your color choices and materials will be beautiful.

    I do! White Dove has been a designer favorite for years, but choosing the right white really depends on the color of your countertops, tile, floor, etc. There are definitely whiter whites than Simply White.

    If you live in a major metropolitan area there is probably a hardware specialty store that you can order through.

    Good question. It's kind of a mysterious color. It's called silver but definitely takes on a warmer tan/taupe color in the right light. At other times in cooler light, it appears more silver.
