Before & After Kitchen with Honed Absolute Black Granite

I love a good 'Before and After' and I've got a really great one for you today.
This is a kitchen we completed with Tiek Built Homes a few months ago.  Steve Tiek does such a great job and he did it again on this home.  This was quite the transformation!

and After!

I seriously had to go back and forth 10 times between the pictures before I really believed it was the same space. Amazing!

The granite is 2 cm Absolute Black granite with a Honed finish
The edge detail is a 1 1/2" Miter.  We even did the Mitered edge around the undermount farmhouse sink, this is a lot of work to do the Miter around the sink.  In fact, many fabricators won't do it.  Doesn't it look good though?
We also did the windowsill behind the sink with the Mitered edge.

They did white subway tile on the backsplash and set it in a herringbone pattern above the range.

This really is such a gorgeous kitchen and we're so happy to be a part of it.

WOW! That's all... Just wow!

I did the same thing... back and forth 20 times before I was convinced that it was the same kitchen. White cabinets and white subway tile scream my name, so of course, I am in love with this kitchen. While not my first choice, (I am forever a carrara girl) I do like the black honed granite here. With such a large expanse, color on the countertops is absolutely necessary.

Thank you for another fabulous example!
