RE: stone yards in Boston/New England area (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: sparklekitty on 07.21.2010 at 10:11 am in Kitchens Forum

Just got my Super white (or supreme white I don't remember what they called it) quartzite from Marble and Granite in Westwood MA - http://www.marbleandgranite.com/ They are a distributor. Here are some other places I found it in March of 2010.

Boston Granite exchange in Haverille
MSI International in Braintree MA (when I looked in March they only had very gray slabs.)
Gerrity in Woburn MA (they are a fabricator.) They carried the lighter, more swirly quartzite when I looked.

I found the distributors & fab shops were good with both sending photos and more importantly describing on the phone the slabs they had to help me narrow down what I wanted to look at.

Below is a link to an album of some of the slabs we considered to give you an idea of variation that was available when we looked. Good luck on your search.

Consider "Off White" also if you like "Old White" it's lighter, but still definitely there.

Here's "White Tie" on the walls (that's "Pointing" on the trim and ceiling:

Here's a great example of how you can use space-saving fixtures to squeeze
in a stylish half-bath in a tight space.

Don't forget space-shaving corner sinks and W.C.s.

RE: Do you have marble or white granite behind cooktop (backsplas (Follow-Up #6)

We don't have the guard (we have the island trim) and I went to carefully and under bright light look at the backsplash specifically in back of the cooktop and I cannot see any discoloration. I saw some leftover grease but that's a different story ....

old picture because our kitchen hasn't looked this tidy / unlived in since it was done!

While I was at it I looked at all the backsplash, even where stainless objects are up against it (like the toaster) and still can't see anything. I know my eyesight is fine (I was wearing my 40 year-old glasses while looking!), so this is v. interesting to me.

firsthouse_mp -- you have got to check out mindimoo's kitchen -- it is insanely gorgeous! That marble makes me drool ....

And I am so happy that when I should check back in on GW that sweet, generous mindimoo is here too!

firsthouse_mp -- are those your inspiration pictures? They're yummy!
