Florida House - Kitchen Update


I mentioned in a previous post that we were planning to update the island countertop in our four year old kitchen, but while that seems crazy, when building, we had limited time at the builder’s design center and felt it was time for something with a little more interest.  We switched from white Corian (I wanted an all white kitchen) to white quartz with subtle veining and a white surface to match the other counters.  I like having the island different and it makes it a focal point.

Most tones at the showroom were reading gray, but I was able to find a slab with more tan/greige tones to match the rest of my open floor plan home.  We are very happy with the finished product and the installation process.  We also switched the double sink to a larger, inset, and more modern one compartment stainless sink with a custom insert to cut down on scratches.

I love it all.


  1. It's very pretty. Probably the thing I miss most about our last house AND the camping trailer we lived in all winter is the island that both kitchens had. This house is not nearly as convenient as the trailer or as big as the house. I miss my kitchen in both places but I'm still grateful for finding a house right next door to Mom. What were the chances of that in this housing market?

    1. Maybe you can add a free standing island? My daughter added on from Ikea and it’s great for serving from.

  2. Your kitchen looks so bright! I love it. Have a wonderful weekend, Vicki!

  3. looks great..Love the sink...I have been thinking about changing my sink to just that!! Probably a waste of money at this stage..Have a good weekend..

    1. I wasn’t sure if I would miss the double sink, but I love the change!

  4. Beautiful! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. Gorgeous! I am all about the one compartment sink. Mine is huge and I never want a double again. Happy cooking!

    1. Change is not my friend, but once I agree, I usually end of loving it :-)
