The Quartz Countertops of My Dreams

Installing the countertops was one of the days we've been looking forward to the most throughout this entire renovation process.

As a reminder, the original kitchen had yellow tile everywhere. You can't tell from the photos, but it was covered in dirt, spiderwebs, and the sinks were clogged and rusty. They were so bad that I barely even touched them, let alone take pictures of the atrocity although now I kind of wish I did take more photos.

Anyway, let's just take a moment to soak this in.

When we visited the Pental surfaces showroom in January, we instantly fell in love with the Statuario quartz. We also considered the Misterio which has lighter, cloud-like pockets of veins, but the Statuario was still a clear favorite. The veins are defined yet soft, long, and elegant. It's the kind of quartz countertop that makes you want to cook a fancy 10-course dinner, just because it looks so damn good in photographs.

As you can tell, I can't stop taking pictures of them. I want to rub my face all over them. Ok maybe I already have.

I never thought I would have countertops like these in my house. It's surreal, and I am so, so thankful for this house and the opportunity to make it ours. Literally crying. I need to go hug my counters again now.
