RE: Rachiele Copper Sinks (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: deeageaux on 10.10.2012 at 02:12 am in Kitchens Forum

I have a Rachiele 30" Apron-front Sink with weathered patina. Matched it with Cambria Dovedale quartz countertop. It is kinda like marble but with caramel veining instead of grey.

I got mine before the smart sink option was available.

What did you want to know?

RE: considering a copper kitchen sink (Follow-Up #13)

A few years back, didn't we decide on a system of elimination for determining whether you're a good candidate for a copper sink?

Do NOT get a copper sink if two or more of the following are true:

a. you iron your jeans

b. you are bothered by cupboard doors or dresser drawers being left slightly open

c. you wear white jeans jackets, or any jackets with rhinestones or fringe

d. you immediately notice when something isn't symmetrically ordered

e. you can't concentrate if 'stuff' is left out on counters or around the house

f. you make your bed the second after you get up

g. you find yourself smoothing out the edges of all the Scrabble tile pieces already played on the board

h. you'd never get glass-doored cabinetry or open shelving because you can't stand to see the everyday contents on display

i. when your nail polish is chipping, you repair it immediately

j. you straighten the hanging guest towels in other people's houses

Madeline, I think he's referring to the underside of the countertop rim that hangs over the sink in a negative reveal installation.

People have argued this issue for years on this forum. Honestly, I think it's just about where you prefer your gunk to be. Some are more grossed out when it's not visible, some the other way around. We all want to avoid gunk, and we all choose the sink install that will help us do so most effectively according to our own habits.

In short, your gunk choices:

RE: Corner wall oven- good or bad idea? (Follow-Up #10)

It takes up 41 inches of counter on each side for a 30" oven. If you have the room, I think it works quite nicely in my kitchen. I'm not a big fan of the dead space in the corner or lazy Susans.


Layout! This might work...

Help! Need an affordable fabricator in Eastern Mass!

posted by: soibean on 11.26.2012 at 11:34 am in Kitchens Forum

Like lots of others on this board, I've been looking for quartzite slabs for my countertops. I could go with a lot of the ones people here have used - White Macaubas, White Arabesque, Antarctica, etc. I have found numerous slabs I like, but the prices from the fabricator are insane - $210/sq.ft.

Today I visited a slab showroom that actually publishes their prices, so I know that the quartzite the fabricator is quoting at $210/sqft installed costs them $78/sqft wholesale. How could they possibly justify $130/sqft for fabrication??

Anyway, I am wondering if anyone has experience with fabricators in Eastern Mass that they would recommend. My GC is willing to work with other fabricators.
