Just ordinary kitchen with upgraded countertops and flooring.

Azul Aran granite countertops and white cabinets create an interesting combination that one can find useful for his/her remodeling projects.

Beautiful granite, and the floors are lovely and warm. The new sink/faucet make a difference, too. What a wonderful change!It looks like a completely different room. Congratulations on your new space!

Wow what a difference a floor and countertops make..well not any old floor and countertop of course. That granite is just beautiful I've never heard of it before. Was it hard to find?

One suggestion, have you considered changing out the gold cabinet knobs? I think something in a silver tone would really go well with your sink, faucet and beautiful backsplash. But of course, JMO.

Great job!

RE: White kitchen with Azul Aran granite countertops

Thanks to all of you! Finding the right granite was the biggest challenge for us. We spent a lot of time sifting through our local granite yards.

There were several options available:






You can see my project manager on this picture, I've just followed her orders...





The final choice was between Azul Aran and Creama Bodeaux, the most popular brand in our area.

We liked Creama Bodeaux but Azul Aran happened to be a better choice for our white kitchen.

Thank you island for the good advice, we'll give satin knobs a try.

I second the suggestion of satin nickel knobs. Colonial Bronze makes ones that allow you to choose a two-tone finish. I'm doing them in pewter (outside) and satin nickel on the face of the knob. Just a little added interest. Enjoy your new beautiful kitchen!

RE: White kitchen with Azul Aran granite countertops

Nice to see some good size granite samples. And of them your 2 favs are mine also, but your Azul is by far the tops. For as much as I love and wear blue, I never even thnk to look at anything bluish for the kitchen. You've broadened my horizons! Love it love it!

RE: White kitchen with Azul Aran granite countertops
