We chose a BIG stainless sink from Franke for our kitchen and after the sink and my beautiful Franke faucet was installed in July, I was dismayed at how close everything was to the casings and window sill (below) ‘There will be some quartz left over from your countertops, so just get a slab cut for the sill (it only needs to be finished on one side) remove the casings and take the subway tile all the way to the edge.Then you don’t have to worry about water damage to the sill and casings.’When I arrived at Spectrum Stone to pick up the slab, Vincent (below) gave me a tour of the plant. And here is where the edges are finished and glued together.Vincent giving me the A-OK the day he arrived to measure for my countertops! When your business is finishing stone, you can have it everywhere. I was fascinated when Vincent shared that for the last six months of 2011, black countertops was what everyone wanted, this year, they were mostly selling Notice all the white slabs waiting to be finished.source Black (above) would definitely be my second choice for a countertop in a white kitchen because it’s still simple, clean and I like the drama.I went with white because a white-on-white kitchen has always been my idea of a dream kitchen.When I asked him which was the most popular colour before that he said he didn’t notice.He started noticing when it all started to look the same.
Probably because there are too many men involved in the colour decisions while in the residential side, it’s usually the wife that decides which colour the cabinets will be.source And of course the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept House that I toured when I was in New York at Blogfest in May this year also had a white kitchen.
