A Sea of Granite

The day has come -The Granite is in!

But first, let’s back up a week or two to how we decided on the Granite. Don’t worry, we’ll get to the pretty pictures in a minute 🙂

Once the Cabinets were installed, we were able to start really getting in to granite. We headed over to Big Brothers Marble and Granite in Baltimore. I have worked with them before on a prior house and was happy with the work. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that they are down the block!

We headed over to check out some samples. We came prepared with our estimated measurements <– This is important, or they won’t be able to give you a realistic price.

Alex, our sales rep/aka my new BFF, helped walked up through the different stones that fit with the look, but also the budget. She basically slapped my hand away from anything that was *too pretty*, as in wayyyy out of our budget and led me on a path to the affordable options.

We quickly settled on Fantasy Brown. Its a very common granite and falls mid-range in price, but still much lower than Quartz and Man-Made stone.

They sent the templaters out 3 days later to get our final measurements and to template the kitchen. Only a few days later, they were back to install.

Are you ready??







I have literally spent the last 2 days petting it and cleaning it and shining it (Barely exaggerating).

In other news, the plumber came on Friday to connect the sink, gas range, dishwasher and fridge water/ice. So basically, the kitchen is fully functioning!

Still outstanding:

  • Crown Moulding
  • Backsplash Tile

That’s it!!!

And one more beauty for the road:

      Really rich! Perfect layout btwn rooms. Do you think it was worth keeping window? Also, what do you plan above exhaust hood?

        I’m glad we kept the window. We moved everything we own in to the kitchen this past weekend, and are maybe 70% full. I don’t even know what we would put in more upper cabinets! Plus, the plan is to back splash tile fully around the window!

        Exhaust Hood cover is coming in this weeks post!
