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.
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.
