Design Spotlight: Kitchen Island with Venato Extra Quartz
Project: Kitchen Island
Location: Aiken, South Carolina
Material: Venato Extra Quartz @Cosmos Granite
Designer: Stacey Bailey
We did the kitchen perimeter several months ago in a beautiful Quartz Venato Extra. Today we completed the island to give the customer a total complete remodel on their kitchen counter tops.
Designer Notes: They have beautiful gray cabinetry which is a nice contrast with the quartz that looks like a Carrara Marble. When they originally came to me they had the kitchen gutted and new cabinets ordered she wanted something that looked like marble but she did not want the maintenance of marble so we selected a quartz that looks the most like Carrara Marble but gives her durability and maintenance free.
Customer Review: It started with Stacey being so helpful and informative, and your measurements being so accurate, and ended with Frank and Gabe doing an excellent job of installation. Read On
