Did you catch Halfway Wholistic Lake House Kitchen Reveal the other day?
We hope so. Let’s dive into the details of this project today as selecting stone can be complicated for homeowners during the building process and renovations.

Katie Staples shared why she opted for Taj Mahal Quartzite in leathered finish from Architectural Surfaces. “Honestly, we couldn’t be more pleased with them. They are SO stunning. Everything from the color to the texture and durability is exactly what we were looking for! Not to mention Architectural Surfaces provides such a wonderful customer service experience. Their products, process, and customer service are nothing short of perfection.”

To break it down in a very simple way, high-end homes and designers most often select marble for their kitchen designs, while your everyday homeowner looking for a more affordable option will often select quartz or quartzite. Katie selected quartzite for a few reasons. First, it’s a good middle-of-the-road option when it comes to the price considering it’s less than marble but more than quartz. Next, she wanted the quality of a natural stone that was still durable. Last, the warmth of the Taj Mahal and the texture of the leathered finish.

A quick note on stone finish: the three finish options are polished, leathered, and honed. You can select your finish depending on how shiny/smooth or matte/textured you want your stone.
