Starting a New Countertop Project
Florida natives Lorie and Chris Felle were in the process of building a new home when they came to International Granite and Stone. After doing their last Kitchen 11 years ago with IGS, they turned to the experts in fine surfaces again for help with all the surfaces in their new home.
Choosing a Countertop Material
Cambria Quartz is one of the Hottest Countertop Materials available to the public right now. From New Home Builds to Flip Homes and Kitchen Rehab Projects, Homeowners everywhere are choosing Quartz for their Countertops in the Naples, FL area over standard Granite tops. With its Durability and Shine, this material is all the rage right now. Another reason why most homeowners in the Naples area like quartz more than granite is because it never needs to be sealed, unlike Granite, Granite always needs to be Sealed to block out moisture and stains.
Countertops Used in this Kitchen & Bath Remodel
With this Kitchen, the Felle’s wanted to go with grays and whites. After deciding on an open concept Kitchen and Living Room Area, they built a Ten Foot Island to bridge the spaces. At the advice of IGS Design Rep Nate F., the Felle’s chose Cambria Brittanicca, a white, wavy, marbled-looking Countertop color. From there they discussed Backsplash Tile options, farmhouse sink options, and additional countertops in their master bathroom, and two other bathrooms.
“I love the farmhouse apron sink style. It’s a nice big sink and we love the color” Mrs. Felle said of their Blanco Granite Composite Farmhouse Sink. A Gray Slate Arabesque Tile was chosen for the Kitchen Backsplash and extends up to the exhaust hood.
Master Bathroom Countertops:
Quartz is also a great material for Bathroom Vanities, small and large. The great thing about new builds is that you need countertops for all the surfaces you’ve purchased cabinets for. Having this kind of control lets customers choose different designs perfect for each space. The Felle’s chose three different colors for their three Bathrooms. For the Master Bathroom, the Felle’s continued the Brittanicca quartz color from the Kitchen into their Ensuite.
Additional Bathroom Countertops:
For their Children’s Bathroom Vanity Countertops, they decided to use the gorgeous Cambria Summerhill color because it is longer vanity. This color features vast gray veins that look best when laid out on a larger space. For the Hall Bathroom Vanity Countertops, IGS Design Representative Nate F. recommended Cambria Queen Anne Quartz, a gray marbled looking color with the same waving movement as the white and gray Brittanicca color.
