A Tip from Denise: If you select a beautiful stone for the countertops, consider bringing it up the splash so you can see it from any view. This stone is such a show stopper and carrying up the walls really impacts the space.

Additional Comments and Advice: If there is an element you love, find a way to use it and don’t be afraid to compromise. This client wanted a zinc countertop on her island originally, but the sticker shock of the price caused her to hesitate. She was originally thinking of having a walnut table, but by switching the two and finding a table with a zinc top, she was able to have both!
