Considering Giallo Verona for your Remodel?
Here are a few quick snapshots from a Giallo Verona granite kitchen loaded on one of the trucks to be installed today.
These slipped through fabrication right under my nose, without any photo opportunity until they were tightening the straps to keep them secure on the frame in the back of the truck! Wow!
Hopefully, the guys will bring back a few photos from the field, so you can see those, too.
These counters are going into a flip house in the Violet Crown area of Central Austin – the little area of little houses around Anderson Lane and Woodrow. This is such a cool area of older houses – lots of them need updating, but the proximity to all things weird in Austin is quite good since Anderson Lane and Burnet are so close. That makes it a favored spot for investors, if they can find a gem for sale.
Anyhow, the old counters were, well, old.
At the end of the day today, the kitchen will have new Giallo Verona counters. The edge on these is what we call “eyebrow”. It’s like a modified bull-nose – just a little bit shallower than a typical bullnose, and still rounded on the top and bottom edges.
Working with Giallo Verona Granite
This stone has a lot of gold in it. Gold and brown, with some flecks of white or ivory, and dark red. The flecks of red are bigger than we usually see in Santa Cecilia granite.
The colors in this stone look best with warm colors for paint, tile and furnishings. Warm colors like tan, brown, rusts, reds, yellows and golds. It does not look good with cool colors like pale blues. This stone also looks good with almost every natural color of wood cabinets, from dark dark brown to paler woods as well. We’ve also seen it look great with white or ivory cabinets, including those that are glazed or antiqued.
