White Kitchen Inspirations

White Kitchen Inspirations

From cabinets to countertops the color white is dominating kitchen designs all over the country. White marble and quartz countertops are favorites of many of our clients. Here are a few ideas on how to use white in your kitchen. All surfaces in these featured projects were fabricated and installed by Surface One. Ready for an update?

White Quartz Countertops

The stunning white quartz countertops in this recently remodeled kitchen are Calcutta Gold quartz countertops by Silestone. These quartz countertops have a grey and white pattern that emulates marble, while providing the functionality of a quartz product. 

Quartz countertops are non-porous which makes them stain resistant and bacteria resistant. They are also impact and scratch resistant. Quartz is a great alternative for kitchen countertops if you are concerned about maintaining marble.

Lauren Brown of Twin Construction choose to complement the white quartz countertops with white island cabinets and a white subway tile backsplash while contrasting deep blue wall cabinets and vent hood add a dramatic punch of color to the room.

White Marble Countertops with Dark Backsplashes

These creative backsplashes are breaking tradition with dark colors and bold designs. Both of these Twin Construction kitchens pack a high impact punch by contrasting white countertops with a dark custom backsplash. The project on the left features a large marble waterfall island with contrasting black lower cabinets and a high impact custom black tile backsplash over the range. The project on the left features a dark navy herringbone subway tile backsplash contrasted by white cabinets and white and grey marble countertops.

Crestwood Cottage Kitchen Remodel with Alabama White Marble

Crestwood Cottage Kitchen Remodel with Alabama White Marble

Remodeling an older home can be a challenge. In this featured project, Lauren Brown, interior designer for Twin Construction, chose to remodel a 99-year old cottage in Crestwood North. Once Lauren had made the necessary structural repairs, she “began to layer the newly open floor plan with a calming color palette accented by playful, eclectic elements.” 

In the kitchen, Lauren chose to create a dramatic contrast by layering Alabama White Marble Countertops over dark blue-grey cabinets. She installed a white herringbone tile backsplash that goes all the way to the ceiling, creating an elegant backdrop for the natural wood shelving and a custom built range hood. Copper accents and lighting fixtures add flair to the high contrast design, while a natural wood island topped with Alabama White Marble pulls the look together and keeps the room feeling light and bright.

3 Modern Bathroom Design Ideas

3 Modern Bathroom Design Ideas

Who doesn’t want a relaxing spa-like master bathroom? Here are Moder Bathroom design ideas to add functionality, design, and beauty to your home. All surfaces were fabricated and installed by Surface One. Ready for an update? Make an Appointment with Surface One Today!

Silestone Shower Slabs

Who says you have to use tile on your shower walls? In the GBAHB 2015 Ideal Home, built by Fowler Construction, the Master Bathroom shower featured full-length slabs of Silestone on the shower walls.

The seamless shower design is modern and very easy to clean. A custom cut shower shelf was created from Silestone in keeping with the sleek and modern design. Tone on tone tile flooring in the shower and the bathroom creates a monochromatic design throughout this luxurious bathroom. 

The smooth Silestone surface makes this master bathroom shower very easy to clean and there are no messy grout lines. Framed by glass walls and a glass shower door, the soft white color, and sleek texture creates a relaxing and spa-like atmosphere.

Marble Tub Surround

The tub is a great way to add elegance to the master bathroom. Marble has become a popular countertop choice for bathrooms and can be used as decking to frame the bathtub. Custom cut backsplashes are another modern touch that can be added to this focal area. Mixing and matching cabinet styles and flooring choices accentuate the design. The possibilities are endless.

Onyx is a highly colorful stone with unique patterns and a wide range of rich color variations. Onyx is semi-translucent and can be back-lit or under-lit to highlight the beauty of the stone.

Marble Wrapped Corporate Reception Desk

Marble Wrapped Corporate Reception Desk

Marble Reception Desk

The reception area is the first thing a customer sees when they enter your business. Why not go all-in to create a big first impression? For this project, our client wanted to add a custom designed reception desk that would stand out in a large open entry space. The project designer, James Krygel, chose to wrap the rectangular sections of the reception desk in Greystone Marble to create a unique design focused around the angular graining of the Marble. 

Slabsmith Technology

Once the Greystone Mable slab was selected, Surface One worked with the designer to visual wrap the stone around the desk using our Slabsmith virtual imaging software. The designer on the project wanted the mirrored veining in the Marble slab to line up from the upper top all the way down the face of the reception desk to create a diamond pattern. With the Slabsmith software, we were able to visually show the client and designer exactly how the Marble would look wrapped around the desk. Our software shows all the cuts, seams and edges so you can see the final product before we make the first cut.

Mitered Lamination

Mitered lamination is the process of gluing pieces of stone together to create a mitered edge profile. For this project, the pieces of Marble were expertly cut to create a seamless edge between the top of the desk and the front and side panels of the desk. The mitered seams allow the pattern to “wrap” from the horizontal surface to the vertical surface. Surface One has extensive experience with mitering edges for commercial and residential projects. To learn more read our article “What is a Mitered Edge Profile?”

Marble Slab Backsplash Designs

Solid slab Marble backsplashes have become very popular recently as we have seen a resurgence in the use of Marble for kitchen and bathroom countertops. In this application, a large slab of Marble is custom cut to fit around cabinets and fixtures along the entire wall of the kitchen or bathroom.

Marble is a preferred choice of stone to use for custom backsplash designs. As you can see in the images below, gray and white veining that is inherent in traditional Marble colors can be demure or dramatic depending on the depth of color, thus complementing a modern or traditional space.

Custom Cut Marble Slab Backsplash

Surface One has taken the Marble backsplash idea to the next level of design by incorporating customized shapes and edge profiles. Rather than covering the entire wall with stone, these backsplashes are custom cut to accent a faucet, a mirror, a cooktop or the Marble stone itself. Architects, designers, home builders and home owners are presented with endless options to add sophisticated design to any space.

The beautiful veining of a Marble slab becomes a work of art when used on the wall. In the cover image above, Surface One custom fabricated a large Marble slab and installed it above the cooktop. Not only does the Marble function as a backsplash for the stovetop, it also serves as a dramatic focal point of the room. In the images below, Marble backsplashes were custom fabricated with varying heights, curves and edge profiles to add dimension and style to a master bath vanity and dressing room vanity.

Custom Cut Marble Bathroom Backsplash

In small bathrooms, an intricately fabricated Marble backsplash can become the canvas for a unique wall mounted sink or complement the design of a mirror. When placed on the wall, a custom fabricated slab of marble can be the finishing touch to a luxuriously designed space.

Sophisticated designs require an expert fabricator to execute the intricate curves and edge profile cuts while maintaining the integrity of the stone. Today’s discerning buyer wants to know what the final product will look before making their final decision. Surface One has invested in state of the art equipment and software to create complex custom designs. We can digitally show you exactly how your slab will look in your home or business before a single cut is ever made–veining, seams, everything! We are one of the few fabricators in the Southeast to invest in robotic equipment for precision based fabrication.
