Are you dreaming of a kitchen space that exudes elegance, functionality, and style? Today, we take a deep dive into one of our most recent and exciting kitchen remodel —a project that we, at Absolute Stone Design, had the privilege to work on with Cori Ashlyn Design. The designer seamlessly pieced together the design components, while we brought those visions to life with our specialized stonework.
The “Before” Scenario in this Kitchen Remodel
The customer’s kitchen was reminiscent of designs we’ve all seen in older homes: outdated cabinetry, worn-out countertops, and a disjointed layout. It was craving a breath of fresh air!
Why Quartz and Quartzite?
Before we delve into the mesmerizing after story, let’s talk about why Quartz and Quartzite were the picks for this transformation.
Quartz: The Modern Touch for a Huge Island
Quartz has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason:
- Durability: Known for its resistance to scratches, stains, and heat, quartz can withstand daily wear and tear—making it ideal for high-traffic areas like the kitchen island.
- Uniformity: Its consistent color and patterns give a clean and sleek appearance.
- Maintenance: With its non-porous surface, quartz requires minimal upkeep, a quick wipe-down, and it shines anew.
Blue Tempest Quartzite: Elevating the Range Wall & Perimeter Countertops
Now, if you haven’t heard of Quartzite, prepare to be entranced:
- Natural Beauty: As a natural stone, Quartzite offers mesmerizing patterns, giving each slab its unique charm.
- Strength: Just like quartz, Quartzite is known for its durability. It’s a match made in heaven for kitchens where spills and splatters are all part of the daily narrative.
- Heat Resistance: Perfect for the range wall where there’s always some action!
With a clear idea in mind, Cori Ashlyn Design envisioned a spacious, light, and elegant space. And we were all hands on deck to achieve this!
The Stunning Island in This Kitchen Remodel
At the heart of this kitchen is the expansive island. By choosing a light-toned quartz, not only does it serve as a functional workspace, but it also becomes a statement piece, reflecting light and creating an airy ambiance.
The Alluring Range Wall & Perimeter Countertops
The range wall now boasts the stunning Blue Tempest Quartzite, creating a dynamic focal point. The beautiful natural patterns of the Quartzite juxtapose beautifully against the modernity of the appliances and the sleekness of the cabinetry. This balance between contemporary and organic elements is what makes this kitchen so captivating.
The perimeter countertops, while complementing the island, carry the same Quartzite, ensuring harmony and flow throughout the kitchen.
Benefits of Merging Quartz and Quartzite
By integrating both Quartz and Quartzite, this kitchen:
- Tells a Story: The modern quartz island hints at contemporary design, while the Quartzite walls and counters transport us to the timeless allure of nature.
- Offers Robustness: Both materials are built to last, ensuring that this kitchen remains ageless for years to come.
- Makes Maintenance a Breeze: Thanks to the nature of these stones, cleaning up after a sumptuous meal becomes less of a chore and more of a swift routine.
