Observatory Park Contemporary Kitchen Traditional Kitchen, Denver

This shot clearly shows the vaulted ceilings and massive windows that dominate this kitchen space. These architectural accents mixed with the finishes and appliances culminate in a magnificent kitchen that is warm and inviting for all who experience it. The Zebrino marble island and backsplash are clearly shown and the LED under-lighting helps to accentuate the beautiful veining throughout the backsplash. This kitchen has since won two awards through NKBA and ASID competitions, and is the crowning jewel of our clients home.

Macaubus is very similar and is a quartzite that is much more durable!

I could be wrong but this looks like Maramara or sometimes called Fluid Marble. It is beautiful. Yes marble is more prone to staining but I like to think of marble like I do hardwood flooring. We pay the price for the beauty fully knowing it will get scratched. The same is true for marble, but it is important for you to have those expectations prior to getting it. As noted above quartzites are another excellent option. I personally am a huge fan of Bianco Macaubus noted by the previous person.

I'm in love with the Zebrino marble! - Can you please tell me the longest length of the marble used on the island? I was hoping to do white macaubus on mine but was recently told it doesn't come long enough. I am doing a 10' island and would need 136" to accommodate a 2.5 mitered edge. Any suggestions? I love the movement in both aforementioned materials!

The longest length we found for the island was 126". 136" is REALLY long, and I'm not surprised your having a hard time finding it. Slab lengths are really dependent on supply and what the manufacturers are producing. Keep looking around and you may get lucky. The Zebrino, while beautiful, will not hold up nearly as well as the Macabus, and you will surely run into the same problem with length. If you were my client, I would advise you to stay with the Macabus and try your best to make it work. I hope this helps, and good luck!!

The backsplash was made by Weldwright Fabricators in Sheridan Colorado, and the pot filler is mounted to pluming/framing behind the stainless backsplash. While the application is not very complicated, it would be best if you consulted with your local kitchen professional. Thanks!!
