The Countertops Are In!


They finally arrived!!  Our Silestone quartz countertops have been installed in our new kitchen and I couldn't be more pleased with them!  

The perimeter is a marble-looking 'Alabaster' and the island is a dark gray with veining 'Calypso'.
The workmen arrived early Wednesday morning and had the whole job completed in less than two hours.  There was only one seam and they used this contraption to seal it together.
Here are several shots I took tonight.  I've already started filling some of the cabinets.  :)
The great room is off one side of the kitchen/dining area.
You can see the grilling patio through the doorway.  J will be doing a lot of cooking out there so I need easy access for him!

Now if I can just get the washer and dryer out of the dining room!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  It's been a long process but each day we're getting a bit closer.

Beautiful! Cabinet doors resemble ours, and the marble counter resembles what we had in the appartment. I like the contrast between the island and the rest.

How totally wonderful!!!

Bonnie said...

What a great kitchen. Now that you've had you Stylestone counters for a while, how do you like them? We are considering a kitchen remodel in our beach house. It's currently got 80's ugly laminate counters. Although we like the look of granite the house is rented out most of the summer and fall and we would need something sturdier.
