Granite Islands Options…

Over the last ten years or so, granite islands have become popular for the home. And…why not? Islands not only function as the focal point for the kitchen and offer storage and cabient space, but also offer a variety of options when it comes to design. While some consumers are interested in adding an island for another seating area, others are interested in adding an island for sink, or cooktop options for preparing food. Following are a photos of some granite island options that I wanted to share.

Granite Island Options:

If you like eggplant, here’s a good seasonal recipe to try for the Fall season. It is easy to prepare and very good.

Difiniti Quartz Offers Consistent Look For Countertops…

When it comes to countertops, there are a lot of choices when it comes to material. For those consumers that  like a great deal of consistency along with a lighter tone, an engineered quartz product is a good option, as it is a durable alternative to natural stone. Many quartz products come in a variety of color options.

We recently completed a kitchen for a customer using Difiniti Quartz in the color Circa. Following are a few photos I wanted to share from the project:
