The Absolute Black Granite Updates a 1980s Kitchen
We recently had the privileged of working with a homeowner in Northwest Austin when they remodeled the kitchen in their 1980s home. The light wood cabinets were in great shape and the configuration of the kitchen suited the homeowners well. The addition of Absolute Black Granite brings this kitchen into the year 2010 and provides the gorgeous counters that are in such high demand in established neighborhoods such as this one where the original counters were laminate, or occasionally tile.
Tumbled Stone Back Splash
This kitchen also had a tumbled stone back splash set on the diagonal.
This type of tile set takes more time and patience but looks fabulous when done, especially with the occasional inset black granite tiles. The edge on this granite is full bull nose. This kitchen required two slabs of 3 cm granite – the photos don’t show well that in addition to the long sink counter, island and cook top counter, the kitchen also has a large breakfast counter.
