Entries in granite (2)
I saw your blog and thought I would send in my question:
I am having a kitchen renovation working with a kitchen designer. She didn't mention that my 11' 2" span would be too long for a seamless granite top when we started.
We have already paid for and installed the Uba Tuba on the island but for the 11' 2'' periphery we will be limited by the size of slabs available. She suggested using absolute black on the periphery (our periphery cabinets are bronze cherry and the island is soft white with a bronze glaze- the island will remain uba tuba granite). The other option is to have the uba tuba installed on the periphery as well with one seam. I am so afraid of the seam but I don't know about using absolute black and uba tuba since the cabinets are different colors too. I don't want it to look like a kitchen display room. Our floors are travertine and the walls are a muted gold. The hardware is ORB.
