This week, we were invited back to a completed countertop project to sneak a peek at the finished results! And boy, were we in for a treat.
Davis Islands has long been an elegant neighborhood in the Downtown Tampa area. Nestled by the water, the Warren family purchased their home about a year ago, with their dream kitchen in mind. They started work immediately, with knocking out walls, gutting the old kitchen including the old worn out countertops. While working initially with designer Enrique Encresto, the Warren’s drew inspiration for their kitchen countertop project from finding pictures on Pinterest and houzz.com of many colors of natural stone. With the demolition and drywall process completed, the Warren’s called International Granite & Stone to help them out with their kitchen countertops.
After much deliberation with IGS Design Specialist Jessica A., The Warren’s decided on a gorgeous slab of Brown Fantasy. Brown Fantasy is a natural stone quartzite countertop. Quartzite is often preferred for its durability, as it is significantly stronger than Marble and tougher than Granite. Due to its natural stone properties, we recommend sealing the quartzite to make sure the stone won’t absorb any liquids and cause stains. Natural Stones are prone to staining without a sealer, so protecting your investment is key. Brown Fantasy Quartzite features a white/gray background, with swirls of black, taupe, and cream with hues of blues and greens.

Fun fact about Quartzite
Quartzite is stronger than your average kitchen knife and will dull your knife if you cut directly on it!!
