Ultimate Chef's Kitchen

 Hello Friends,   It's been awhile since my last post.  Wanted to share a kitchen project by
Angelo L Scrudato  a  co-worker at Kuche-Cucina ..   The client wanted Angelo to design the ultimate chefs kitchen.   He designed this kitchen using  Pedini "Dune" kitchen cabinets in white lacquer from Italy!  The client ordered the sub zero Pro  refrigerator  and wolf range.    The countertops are carrera marble with full back splash.   On window side there is a stainless steel countertop.     All the elements of a professional  chefs dream kitchen!  Ciao!

Selecting a Stone for Countertops




Hello ! December is almost here and holiday season in full swing.  Have you completed your 
home renovation or are you thinking about a project??

  Today I wanted to discuss countertops and 
products available on the market.  In the past we would  visit the  stone yard for a granite or marble counter top and select one with combined marble coloring.
Today there are dozens of new choices especially in engineered stone, very  durable and long lasting. There is  CeasarStone, which comes in beautiful tones and marble look alikes so easy  to keep clean and looks stunning for years , Dupont Zodiaq quartz  has a calcutta, a favorite ,see link below )
Dupont still manufactures corona and can be back lit.
Many of my recent projects have had a waterfall countertop over one side to the floor.
This requires a strong material and marble tends to be fragile.
I do love my statuary Marble top.  However, it will dull if not treated and stains are apparent and
must be  careful with wine and fruit acids.
There are is concrete fabricators that pour countertops.  Must us an experienced company!
It worth a trip to a large stone yard to educate yourself to materials.
You can get samples and test for durability

Enjoy December and ask questions if you need to know more about stone surfaces

House at the Beach




Summer at the beach.   How about a small cottage on the ocean??
Would be nice, right???
Well, dreams can come true!   Beach homes require some good up
keep to keep them protected from  moisture and salt damage
After storm Sandy many homes are built up at least 9 feet  and
many new designs are very cool.   The home can appear to have
a bottom level built with garage and windows.

Hope you have a wonderful summer!
