Marble is a very delicate material which will with time suffer the effects of wear, scratches, stains and direct heat, which tends to discolour its surface.
In her search for the perfect kitchen countertop – not just beautiful and elegant, but above all practical – Lena went to the M.O.V. show in Cologne, where she fell in love with SapienStone countertops. She decided to schedule a visit to the company’s showroom in Castellarano to choose her own countertop material.
“Our original kitchen did not mirror the airy feeling we love about our home. – comments Lena – It was small, enclosed and disconnected from the rest of the house.”What Lena had in mind for her kitchen renovation project was a big, bright, open space. To create it she had to knock down a few walls so as to literally blend the kitchen with the rest of the home. And the result is truly outstanding!
The fulcrum around which the entire kitchen revolves is the central island, completely covered with SapienStone’s Arabescato. A high, spacious worktop incorporates an induction cooker and a sink, which can, if required, become an elegant counter on which to dine or work.In the background is a wall with white cabinets that add even more light to the room, with, in the centre of the wall, an Arabescato niche ensuring visual continuity between the wall and the central island.
