It all started with a little laundry room re-vamp last year. It always seems to happen that way. We had The Home Depot install Calacatta Gold Silestone quartz counter tops in two little sections of the laundry room. We absolutely loved it, craving more of it in our home!

The kitchen was the PERFECT place for us to stare at it all day long. The previous granite was fine, but earlier last year we installed a built-in banquette and were never able to find the original granite to top it with. After months of searching we found out that it had been discontinued. In order to make the kitchen flow and not feel choppy with mis-matched counters, we decided that this would be the perfect place for the Silestone quartz countertops we loved so much in the laundry room.

We love working with The Home Depot for installations because we always know they will do a great job. They handle everything with care, cleaning as they go and constantly seeking your opinion to ensure you’re a part of the process and pleased with how it’s going.


Quartz Countertops for a Modern Farmhouse

We couldn’t be happier with our decision on the low-maintenance Calacatta Gold Silestone quartz countertops from The Home Depot backed by a 25-year warranty. The light gray veining allows for the perfect pop against the clean white surface. It adds just enough warmth and character without moving too far out of that “timeless” category.

Our little banquette suddenly became the hero for nudging us to go with full quartz in the kitchen.

First the laundry room, then the kitchen… what’s next? I suspect that over time we will slowly be converting the entire house over to our new favorite material.

    My kitchen is being remodeled and I am definitely doing the quartz and backsplash like this. Are your cabinets from the builder or also Home Depot? I also plan to use HD for the entire remodel for the assurance of quality and professionalism. thank you for the inspiration.

    This was a beautiful countertop. I also love the design of your kitchen, it is so simple yet elegant. I also admire those chandeliers of yours, it was so stunning.

    Beautiful! We were starting to gather ideas to remodel and add on to our kitchen and I have been eyeing all of your designs for inspiration! Last week our home and neighborhood flooded so the potential addition will be put on hold :(. I’m wondering if I can just spruce up our current kitchen. What are the dimensions of your kitchen? My layout is very similar to yours so I’m curious if I can make it work! Thanks!

    Hi Holly! Can you see/notice the seam at all where they have built out the countertop to appear thicker? We are in the process of ordering countertops and were given the choice of 2cm with the build out (to make 4cm) or 3 cm overall. We can’t decide!

    This was exactly the post I needed to solidify my choice of Calacatta Gold Quartz for my kitchen! It was so hard to picture a large slab from my builder’s small sample!
