Sarasota Luxury Remodel Showcased in Home & Design Magazine
This week’s project comes to us from a major Sarasota Home Renovation featured in Home & Design Magazine: Suncoast Edition. Located in Oyster Bay Estates, the home sits on about 1.3 acres of land, with almost 6,500 sq ft of Living Space. This project was a collaborative effort with one of our Commercial Partners Trinity Construction and Design. Trinity Construction & Design is a second-generation building firm local to Sarasota. “Focusing on quality while providing service with integrity is our goal.”
More About This Remodeling Project in Sarasota
Originally built in 1990, TCD rebuilt the home from the studs up, while International Granite and Stone worked on fabricating and installing all of the Countertop Surfaces in the Home. Two different types of Countertop Materials were used in this project, Quartzite, and Quartz. Cambria Quartz was used in the Kitchen, Dining Room, and the En-suite Guest Bathrooms, whereas the Master Bathroom and Outdoor Kitchen used Quartzite. The homeowners chose to go forward with a monochromatic theme, featuring different shades of white, gray and black, while keeping things Contemporary and Coastal.
Countertops Used in This Remodeling Project
Brittanicca Cambria Quartz was the perfect choice for this house remodel on the water. The flowing gray veins, on a crisp white background, makes for a stunning beachy contemporary look on the clean white cabinets. The Open Layout Kitchen flows right into the living room, where two Cambria Brittanicca Quartz Islands look out into the Living Space. Waterfall panels accentuate the Islands, creating a seamless and flow look that is to die for. Waterfall panels require special cuts and installation to create that seamless look. The pieces are cut along the inside edges at a 45-degree angle and then seamed together along those 45-degree edges. Together the pieces come to form a 90-degree angle corner, with the seam being minimally visible. This special cutting and edging technique are referred to as a “Mitered” edge. The gray veins flow seamlessly from the top of the Countertops all the way down the waterfall panels.
Living Room/Media Wall and Passthrough Countertops:
Housing the Fireplace and Television is also Cambria Brittanicca Quartz. This gorgeous media wall is the focal point of the Living Room. Behind the Double Islands, you’ll find more Cambria Brittanicca Quartz as a full-height backsplash above the Miele Oven & Cooktop. The Brittanicca on the opposite walls ties the open layout space together like bookends, framing each side of the room. Next to the Kitchen is the Dining Room, connected by a pass-through bar Countertop, also made from Brittanicca Cambria Quartz. This really helped tie together all the open layout spaces combined in the area, while also making the space look clean and polished.
Bathrooms and Outdoor Kitchen:
In the Master Bathroom, the homeowners used Super White Quartzite, also known as Calacatta Quartzite. This gorgeous Marble-looking stone was used on the Double Sink Vanity, the Make-up Vanity, the Tub Surround, and the Shower Sills. Quartzite Countertops are similar in style to Marble but are typically much stronger than Marble. Using Quartzite in the Bathroom is a very smart move, due to the etch-ability of Quartzite when exposed to acidic foods and liquids like tomato or lemon juice in a Kitchen setting. Quartzite is ideal for lower-traffic areas like bathrooms as opposed to Kitchens. They also used the Super White Quartzite outside on the back patio on the Outdoor Kitchen and Island. As with any Natural Stone, Quartzite will need yearly maintenance and sealing to block out any stains.
