Party Kitchen and
Basement Stone & Tile


Envirobate
We’re pushing forward on the basement project in this move-up home. We’re coordinating the wood species pretty carefully. Our door supplier was able to come up with the style we wanted in cherry, pre-hung on cherry jambs. Separately we ordered cherry casing to go around the windows and doors, and cherry baseboards. PLUS we’re having some cherry panels custom made to tuck up perfectly into the barrel vault.

Our cabinets are cherry, too. And since the cabinets come pre-finished, that’s the stain we’ll be asking our painters to match when they stain and varnish the unfinished doors and trim. All told, we’re getting our cherry woodwork from four different sources and hoping there’ll be just the right amount of variation in color and graining. (And don’t forget, as cherry is exposed to sunlight it darkens….)

We went through a phase where we used a lot of cut and honed natural stone for floors. But now there are so many tiles that really mimic stone, and we’re using those a lot. (Tile is generally more affordable and a little easier to install than solid stone.)

It looks so much like stone that we’re able to mix in small, square accent pieces and trims that ARE natural stone. And we’ve also got a few pewter accent pieces.

We stuck TOTALLY with a natural stone product around the fireplace. But this is a VENEER. The stone supplier slices the stones into thin pieces that are light enough to stick onto a concrete backerboard underlayment. It’s the same installation technique that is used with lightweight manufactured stone. But since this is the real thing, there is more variation in the sizes, shapes and colors.

We’re comfortable installing manufactured stone, but we usually draw the D-I-Y line at natural stone. We let the professionals do this job. They’ve got a better eye than we do for knowing just the right piece for each position, and how to chip and trim it so it will fit perfectly.
