Volga Blue Granite Makes the Grade
This spectacular urban kitchen is actually a suburban remodel of a home built in the 1980s. The original kitchen was 10×10 at most and closed in on three sides with minimal counter space. The original kitchen walls were blown out to accommodate this fantastic one-of-a-kind kitchen with volga blue granite with a flat polish edge.
The entire kitchen was designed by a pair of friends with a lot of trial and error, a little bit of vodka and a lot of chocolate.
One fabulous addition to the design is the extensive slate back splash, set in a subway tile pattern. The slate continues along the wall in front of the black breakfast stools, to protect the wall from little kicking feet. The peninsula is a whopping 46 inches wide by 148 inches long. This kitchen took two slabs of this expensive Volga Blue granite, and took extra careful cutting to avoid a few significant flaws in one of the matching slabs.
The under mount sink also has a flat polish edge and is big enough to bathe a toddler, or a dog, or some really really big pots.
All of the base cabinets have drawers instead of doors which greatly enhances the usability of the space. These gorgeous stainless steel cabinets have heavy-duty capacity and came from IKEA!
