What was the customer originally asking for? Quartz Countertops
Customer Goal: New countertops with a cozy, rustic barn feel
What was the Decor Style: Country Rustic
My clients were initially looking at quartz countertops because of their durability and beauty. After talking to them about their desire for a rustic feel to their kitchen, I suggested a butcher block countertop. I showed them the butcher block counter that we carry from Web-Don, and they were thrilled with the wood choices. Their kitchen had white cabinets, so they decided on a lighter wood, Maple, for their butcher block countertops. The only down side was the 6 weeks lead time it took for the counters to be delivered, but once installed, they were very happy with the results. Their new kitchen was even better than they had imagined!
