Sandy Shoe 7-

No sealer cannot prevent etching. None. If anyone says it does, it's simply not the truth. It's just the makeup of the stone that causes the vulnerability. So if you don't like water marks, forget marble. Do quartz (human-made, but cant take heat) or better yet, quartzite. Be careful though, a lot of people will tell you some "quartzite" are in fact true quartzite but really they are dolomitic marble. Do your homework before you purchase any counter material!

engineered stone - Quartz is an excellent and cost effective alternative to the natural stones - granite, marble, quartzite. Cambria and Viatera are both manufactured in the US and have a variety of marble like slabs which are durable, stain resistant, and hygienic as well as offering warranties for the materials.

Hello! Marble is a softer, more porous stone that can be susceptible to staining if not sealed properly. At CTS, it is common practice to apply an impregnating sealer after installation to prevent staining and etching. Stain-Proof and Meta Cream are two impregnating products that we confidently stand by for protection. We also recommend using trivets, coasters and cutting boards as an extra layer of defense. Take a peek at our VLOG titled "Stain, Stain, Go Away"http://www.connecticutstone.com/education/video-blog-episode-1-stain-stain-go-away/ It's an educational, time lapse video that gives examples of what everyday, household items can do to natural stone when not sealed properly.

Thanks for reaching out with your question. We made this counter in Calacatta Honed Marble, 1-1/4" thick. Calacatta is a luxury marble that is quarried in Italy. There are many different types of Calacatta available in today's market. Quoting a price without seeing the scope of work is difficult as there are many factors to consider including material type, slab size and waste. In order to quote you an accurate price, we would need to review your project's scope. However, it may be helpful for you to know that presently, Calacatta slabs (in New England) are running between $90 and $200 SF. If you would like a price estimate on your project, please feel free to email us at tyra@connecticutstone.com. Thanks very much!

Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Young Architects

Hi Bailing, without seeing a drawing of your kitchen layout, its a little hard to say if a 40" x10' island is too large for your kitchen. Certainly at that length it will dominate your space. We thought we might pose some questions to you to help think about whether the island size and kitchen layout work for you and the way you use your kitchen. Do you have enough room around the island to comfortably open cabinets, ovens, dishwashers, etc? When someone is cooking, how will other people circulate around the kitchen/ interact with the cook? What is the "program" of the island? Is there a sink or a stove top on the island? and how much room do you need on each side of that? How much seating do you want around the island? And how much storage? Is the kitchen open to another room or bounded by walls?

If you can- we often suggest that clients layout the kitchen with blue tape on the floor (and sometimes even cardboard) to mock up the space and get a feel for what it will really be like. Drawings and photos can sometimes be deceiving- there is nothing like actually having something physical to respond to.

This is a really good article about island design too:http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/3349882/list/How-to-Design-a-Kitchen-Island/

Hi there! Congratulations on your kitchen renovation! I am asked this question every day and what I have learned is that it depends on the owner's expectations of the countertop. Is marble durable? Yes. However, marble is not as durable as granite or man-made quartz. Marble will etch from products like vinegar, alcohol and citric acid. When we sell a marble countertop, we sell it with the expectation that it will need to be honed and sealed periodically. The frequency depends on how much abuse the counter takes and also the owner's tolerance toward etch marks.

I guess you could bring the sill completely flush onto the countertop and caulk if you are concerned about it. I didn't do that and I never have had a problem with water or food getting in between.

Room and banquette dimensions - Can you please provide dimensions for the room, including the banquette, and then provide the dimension of the banquette. I LOVE the design but I'm worried my space is too small. Thank you in advance for your help.

3. Cool counters. Taking the kitchen windowsills to just above the counter is a great detail. It will open up the room by providing a wonderful expansiveness. And while some will say that placing the windowsill so low will create a place for dirt and water to hide, just remember that, like a child, a beautiful room needs attention to stay that way. Surely the coolness of the stone counter warmed by the sun streaming into the windows and the generous views to the outdoors will be worth it.

Windows instead of upper cabinets. Houzzers made the most of their lower cabinets and interior walls to let in as much natural light as possible. Thanks to all the new smart storage solutions and strategies we saw in 2015, it was easy to sacrifice upper cabinets.

9. Protect your sink cabinet from moisture. This is more of a preventative measure — it will help you avoid issues down the road. There are a couple of ways to help protect your sink cabinet from moisture. You can order the cabinet with an all-plywood construction (most semicustom and prefabricated cabinets are constructed of a mixture of pressed wood and plywood). An all-plywood construction makes the cabinet less penetrable. You can also purchase a cabinet mat, which looks like a tray and is placed at the base of the sink cabinet. It will serve as a moisture barrier and catch any liquid leaks or spills.More Kitchen Confidential: 10 Ways to Promote Aging in Place | 7 Ways to Mix and Match Cabinet Colors | 11 Islands With Furniture Style | The Case for Corbels | All Good in the Hood
