Remember this post about how HARD choosing things for the interior of a home was? I mentioned that finding the granite was one of the hardest things for me to pick out.
Luckily, I did find ONE granite warehouse that carried what is called a HONED or satin finish granite. (I guess they have only been installing honed granite in Europe for YEARS, it isn’t highly polished so it’s not shiny, it has a matte finish.) When I saw it, I turned to the guy helping me and said, “this isn’t granite – is it?” I thought it must have been limestone or some other exotic tumbled stone that was expensive only because it was not granite….WELL, it was a granite, and it was in my price range! (a lower B level and they go all the way up to E I think)
I was so overwhelmed after looking at 1000 slabs of granite but I really felt that was the slab for me so I told my contractor to buy it.
Five months later after choosing it, I finally got to see it installed!
For those wondering about the backsplash I did a BRICK LAID tumbled stone…..I wanted something raw and natural like the granite. Oh and I did chiseled edging on the granite. Just another raw and natural touch…..
It is still in the building phase so the appliances aren’t all in and it’s all dusty and as you can see area’s need patching! It's always fun with a kitchen renovation to see each part come together. There are so many ideas for kitchen cabinets, counter tops and flooring these days. The options are limitless! I can’t wait to show it to you finished and decorated!
Looking forward to showing you what comes in next!!!
