One of the areas we planned to splurge a little on this building project was our kitchen countertops. I’d always had laminate and can honestly say I liked it and never had any issues with it. I’ve always loved the look of granite but just wasn’t willing to open my wallet for it. But for this house, with that view, well we felt it definitely needed granite. Since I love white kitchens, I was tentatively leaning toward a white’ish countertop. But when I saw this Sienna River slab I knew it was the piece I wanted. I loved the veining that reminded me of the beach at waters’ edge with it’s ripples, different colors and various sizes of pebbles mixed in.
Jim’s Cabinet Creations in White Stone was highly recommended by our neighbors Nathan and Sue. We had frequently admired their beautiful countertops that Jim’s had done for them and knew Jim’s was the company we wanted to use if they fell in our price range. Thankfully they did and I have to report that they were also very accommodating, easy to work with and showed up when they said they would. We’ve found that’s not always the case when dealing with the service industry. Their granite supplier, Classic Granite and Marble in Midlothian, VA was also very accommodating and prompt. And we’re so happy with the finished product! Here’s a few pictures. The lighting isn’t the best but you get the idea.
