The countertops are here! Posted on April 3, 2013 by thisbendablelife Yahoo! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPinterestTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
AAaaaaaaaand?? (Did I miss the post expounding on counter-top material selection?) What do you think? what did you get? Can’t quite tell what I’m looking at here, though they do look lovely and pristine! (also: mmmm, sexy stove)
The material choice is a long story, full of strife, sadness, and reconciliation. Short version is, they’re laminate – and one fifth the cost of my beloved, coveted quartz. Thus the sexy stove. I did luck out with a new edge option (new to our vendor and unavailable at local competitors, at least) that gives that nice, square, thick look. The brand and color is Pionite Cavalcade South – a sort of cream/latte color with tiny retro-ish hash marks. We’ll see how they wear!
I’d say do the basement. We just fishnied our in the fall and we LOVE it. If you redo your kitchen, rip out that island and put a bigger island the other way, parallel to the sink and get an overhang so you can have some bar stools there for the boys. That’s where my kids [3 of them] eat and do their homework. By the way, I love my stainless appliances. People just need to know how to clean them correctly. Soapy water on a sponge followed by a dry towel, no fancy cleaners or anything.
Thanks for your comment! Our kitchen is now finished and we LOVE it. The house doesn’t have a basement — or a second floor! That’s in the “ultimate dream” file.
Oh, also – Paperstone was our first choice, but the colors were all so dark. Sacrificed the more ecologically sound option for aesthetics. Hrmmm …
When Jason and I were talking remodel of his kitchen the architect was raving over the new laminates out there. Curious to see how yours wear, for sure – they look purdy :)
