Newbie here,...could use your kitchen remodel advice

tld79September 4, 2012

Hi all,

I've been mainly a lurker until now, but I need some of your advice! We are closing on a house in 2 weeks, and the kitchen is a complete gut job! (most of the house is!) So far we have picked cabinets, Kemper Rennie style in espresso color. I have narrowed the granite down to 2 colors, super white, and delicatus.

I am having a hard time deciding which to go with, and then trying to match the color of a backsplash - here is the design I have decided to go with. (I like solid colors, not the multi)

Also, could any of you give me any insight on the granite composite sinks from Blanco? I love the color selection they have and so far my research hasn't turned up any major negative reviews.

Just to give you some other info...we are doing SS appliances and a slide in range with chimney hood. We are not doing an island but have a pennisula...and a matching dining room hutch.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Pick whichever counter is the one that really makes you happy. The only thing getting me through the etching of my super white is the fact that I love it so much.

I'd hold off on making any backsplash choices right now. Wait until you have counters, cabinets, floor, etc in place. Then, make the decision when you are in the new kitchen. No need to rush this decision. Too many regret making it hastily.

Good luck!!! Congrats on the new house!
