When our kitchen counters were installed last week, I was so pleased with the Hanstone Specchio White Quartz. It's even more beautiful in person, and definitely better than the little sample I've been carrying around for the last six months!
However, my marble remnant, for which our baking center was resized to fit the exact dimensions of the slab, was cut wrong. There was a big notch out of one corner. I couldn't help but be disappointed. It was a splurge. Not essential, not even important in the grand scheme of life. But disappointing nonetheless. Since we bought a remnant, I wasn't sure what the options were. I certainly didn't plan to buy marble at full price. I left it to Todd, our GC.
I was elated a few days later to learn that Canton Cut Stone would be replacing my marble. Last night, when we dropped off a new light for Niels' office (his Dutch one only half works...sigh), we were pleasantly surprised to find this:
It's really beautiful!
It looks WONDERFUL! I am so happy that they made it right!
While they were here, they also brought the in-law vanity back. We had to go with an undermount sink after realizing that the vessel sink we bought was too high for ADA standards. We actually wanted an undermount all along, so we're very happy with how it turned out.
And at long last, our laminate counter has been installed in the laundry room! It makes us laugh that of the quartz, marble, granite and laminate counters, it was the laminate that took the longest to get installed.
The laminate is called Citadel Warp (5882) from Formica. It's a pretty gray with a line pattern.
The sink is also installed. We first saw this one at a kitichen design center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It's the Corstone White Self-Rimming Acrylic Laundry Sink. We ended up buying it from Keim Lumber, but's also available at Lowes.
A big THANK YOU to Canton Cut Stone for making this family very happy!
