3cm Giallo Ornamental is a classic granite color that can vary from yellow to creamy brown and it is quarried in southern Brazil. In this installation, the granite has beautiful cream and brown colors that looked great in the kitchen. The consistent pattern of this granite helps to provide a clean look without taking away from the beauty of the natural wood cabinets.
Before the installation, the homeowner wanted to lower the raised bar top so that the countertop will be one level. This is a very common practice right now and in small spaces it is a great alteration to do. With the countertop one level the kitchen has opened up and now has opened up into the living room. Both rooms look larger now and more inviting. The under cabinet lighting and the new stainless steel appliances helps to brighten the kitchen.
