Kitchen Update – Granite Selection

 

Selecting finishes is everyone’s favorite part of a rehab – it’s when things finally start coming together and your vision becomes a reality.  While much of the house is still in full throws of rehab, the kitchen demo is complete and is finally ready for a little love.  We’re still bouncing around ideas for flooring and backsplash, but my wife took a quick trip to the local granite supplier to pick out the countertops.

Granite was the first finish we selected as it will dictate our backsplash and flooring selection.  In that the existing cabinets have a  natural oak finish, my wife select a rustic granite with hints of cream, beige and brown.   Doesn’t it blend perfectly with the cabinetry?  You’d think she’s done this before!

Given the granite selection, my wife suggested we go with a darker floor covering and simple and light backsplash. I agree!  We don’t have anything in mind just yet, but will be heading to TileShop to make our selection.  They have such a diverse product offering (much better than Home Depot or Lowe’s) and their prices are similar, if not better.
