Vermont Danby- The better alternative to White Carrera

White Carrera marble is all the rage right now on the pages of Houzz.com, Pinterest, and home remodeling magazines and tv shows everywhere. Although it has a very clean look, the problem with marble is that it can etch and stain very easily, which some folks look at as patina, but causes others to lose sleep at night knowing that the brand new kitchen they just spent thousands on now has a blemish. Well we’ve got a solution for that! Enter Vermont Danby. It’s a kitchen rated material that resists stains and etching, but still has the coveted look of White Carrera, without the headaches! Now note that I said “resists” stains and etching, so don’t leave red wine sitting on it for a week and expect that it will not leave a mark. All natural stone has its limits and you know we keep it real at Stone Saver and will never tell you something is 100% impervious to damage. Just use common sense and wipe up any stains within a reasonable amount of time and keep it sealed and your counter will remain just as beautiful as the day it was installed! Here are some photos of a recent job where we paired the counter with white subway tile. The look is a crisp, clean, kitchen just waiting for a would-be chef to grace it’s curves.

 I just love the farm house sink! Here the counters contrast nicely with the espresso colored island and brushed nickel faucet and hardware.

The wall cabinets are a pure white and we decided to add a little dimension to the backsplash by adding a pencil liner around a row of 6×6 tiles, followed by the 3×5 subway tiles in the center.

This kitchen has it all with the built in cold wine storage and open shelving to house room temperature wine as well as favorite cookbooks.

 The stools the homeowner chose have a very cool retro vibe and the punch of orange spices up the kitchen and plays well off the red tones in the hardwood floor.

We hope you enjoy our work and it inspires you in your own designs!
