In The Kitchen For The Day...


These aren't very good pictures, but we did this kitchen upgrade for my neighbor a couple of weeks ago when it was to cold to work outside.

I dont know if I would like this in my kitchen, I think I would probably get tired of looking at it, but a lot of people seem to want it now.

Re: In The Kitchen For The Day...


I've had a few people ask me about it and I've always talked them out of it. It would be SO hard to clean. Just think about some spaghetti sauce that gets on there...a nightmare.

I love masonry...I mean I LOVE masonry, but the kitchen isn;t the right place for it unless it's smooth and sealed. Just my opinion. Nice job though. Indoor work in th winter...gotta love it

Re: In The Kitchen For The Day...


I agree with you 100%. That stone will look horrible in a few years if they use the kitchen much.

I think kitchens like this, looks good in magazines, but they arent very practical.

Hey SUM, I'm doing well...you? Not a bad winter. Enough work to keep the wolves at bay but enough slow time to catch up on work around the house. A much needed bathroom reno is getting done at the moment.

You get back to the mother country at all this year?

Well done. I would be extra careful working in a place I know is going to be stared at and scrutinized while someone is working in the sink or whatever. It looks like you did a fine job, of course.
I did one sort of like that once upon a time. Not backsplashes, but the walls around an island and an accent wall on one side of the kitchen. I questioned the wisdom of stone in kitchen and was told to shut up and get back to work. Not really. The customer wants what they want.
