Velvet Countertop, Stone Table With Handprints, and Hanging Beads
I have come across many eclectic and exotic construction materials in people’s kitchens throughout my career.
Some that stand out to me include a countertop covered in blue velvet, stone kitchen tables with children’s hands imprinted where they sit, and hanging beads near the refrigerator door.

Glass backsplashes are truly unique, and they have a number of advantages over other materials. They’re extremely easy to clean, and they’re extraordinarily durable.
Glass is also a great way to add color and personality to a kitchen without overwhelming the space. Our clients who have chosen glass backsplashes often say that they love the way the light reflects off the surface, creating a bright and airy feeling in the room.
