UPDATE 6: Countertops
Now that the cabinetry is in we are ready to install countertops!
In the Kitchen, we are adding quartz countertops that have the look of weathered concrete. Quartz is a great countertop material because it is low maintenance and it is resistant to scratches, stains, and heat. It also provides a lot of design options, as it comes in many colors, patterns, and finishes. These matte gray Kitchen countertops create the contemporary minimal design aesthetic our clients wanted and compliment the new gray and white cabinetry. The lower cabinets and the island will both get the same countertop. The convenient new rear entry just off the Kitchen was used to bring the slabs into the home for installation. This is really starting to look like a Kitchen now!
In the Master Bath, we selected a light gray quartz remnant for the vanity countertop. If you are flexible on the finish and have a smaller area to cover, using a remanent can save some money in a project. A white undermount sink was installed along with the countertop and is now ready for plumbing and faucet.
