kashmir white in the kitchen

Tuesday was a big day in our house. The countertops went in and life feels infinitely more civilized now with multiple places in the kitchen to put things down.


But, let's be honest. I am a designer, and so even more than their function, I'm in love with the look of these granite countertops...even though this granite would not have been my first choice. I was hoping for a marble look (if not the price of marble) and thought I could get it with Silestone. Turns out though that even the Silestone was more expensive than the granite. Who knew?


So I went with the lightest granite I could get in our price group (remember this is a kitchen somewhat on a budget, since we won't be in this house forever), and I looooove the way this Kashmir White brings all the elements of the kitchen together.


It's cool, subtle, and calm overall, with hints of the cabinet color in it, balanced with lots of grey that ties in the stainless steel and nickel in the kitchen, and some darker tones to pull in the walnut color of the floors. Could not be happier!

And today, the plumber is here. Big stuff! And the electrician is due by the end of the week. Which means I get to spend Labor Day weekend cooking up a storm. Does that sound like an awful way to spend a long weekend? I can't think of anything else I'd rather do! So let's hope by next week I have some great meals to show for my efforts and some complete kitchen pics to show you all.

I like how the colors are complimented in the cabinets and the counter. I love my granite countertops and am sure you will too. They are so easy to keep clean and just add a little touch of class to any kitchen. Your space is taking shape nicely!

I love the look of this granite with your floors and cabinets - and hooray for horizontal counter space to plop stuff down on!

Wow, it looks really nice and very high end too. And you're right that it really ties the room together.

Perfect granite choice, I don't think it looks at all like it was done on a budget!
