Rainforest Brown Granite Kitchen in Bowie, MD

Contemporary Kitchen, DC Metro

Rainforest Brown Granite is a stunning, dramatic granite with varying shades of brown and gray. It is quarried in Rajasthan, India. These homeowners wanted a stone that would add an exotic element to their cozy, suburban 60's home. Throughout their home they had Japanese decorations from time spent living there. You can see the influences of the Japanese design aesthetic in the clean simple lines of the kitchen and dark cabinets and shadows. They balanced out the exuberant Rainforest Brown Granite with streamlined cabinetry and appliances. We used angular lines and a quiet half-bullnose edge on the granite to tie the cabinets and granite together. The granite full backsplash is bookmatched, which means the pattern runs across the decks (horizontals) and up the wall. Because Rainforest Brown Granite varies a great deal from month to month and slab to slab, make sure to choose your exact slab before you fabricator cuts it.
