They chose Titanium Granite which is very bold, full of movement and contrast. The main color in this stone is black, it has large veins of white, brown, black and cream throughout. Their freshly painted white cabinets make this stone stand out front and center in their new kitchen.
Anne went with an Ogee edge profile and a full height Granite backsplash for extra wow-factor. On their island, they decided on a waterfall edge which is a laminated edge. Laminated edges give the stone that thick look you see in their island. They are made possible by using hard epoxy to affix two pieces of granite together. Their kitchen is considered large coming in over 70 square feet when you include the island.
Titanium is considered an exotic stone and is labeled a Category D stone. The Marble Institute of America (MIA) has been the authoritative source of information of natural stone for over 70 years. The MIA assign categories to all Granites, Marbles and other natural stones. Categories are based a variety of factors including color variation, movement and composition of the stone.
