Finding the Perfect Stone For Your Kitchen or Bath

I had a fun day in Charlotte on Tuesday going to make stone countertop selections with a client.  When it comes to choosing a countertop, the conversation is always about whether to use granite or marble.

Pulliam Morris Calcutta Gold KitchenFor years, everyone thought they needed a granite.  But, with the improved sealers that are available now, marbles have increased in popularity and durability. There are so many more color options with the marbles that I always tend to like them better.  But, it’s hard to beat the look of clean, white Calcutta Gold…always a favorite!

Now, there is a third option that is very popular – Quartzite.  Quartzite is often confused with quartz, but it is not the same.  This material is stronger than marble, although not quite as tough as granite.  Quartzite is a good countertop option for a kitchen or bath.  It comes in beautiful, soft colors which I tend to gravitate towards.  For this client’s project, we were focused on searching for neutrals.  But, this green caught my eye!

Our Selection…

Mountain Casual

IMG_6644A tragic victim to left over furniture, dated colors and some really bad Raymond Waites 1990′s wallpaper, this downstairs den was completely wasted on the elderly couple who previously owned this mountain home.  Now the second home for a younger family, the new owners wanted to reserve the upstairs rooms – with large stone fireplace, vaulted wood ceilings and spectacular view – for entertaining.  This presented a great opportunity to create a casual living space below, adding livability and flexibility for the family.
