Mixing Manmade Materials With Natural Stone

Mixing Manmade Materials With Natural Stone

October 23, 2017

This award-winning kitchen combines Neolith and natural stone. 

Mixing and matching kitchen cabinetry colors is a current design trend, but this stunning kitchen from TBR Marble & Granite of Foxborough, MA proves that mixing multiple surfaces works wonders too. In fact, combining various colors, textures, and materials can lead to a visually stunning, harmonious space. 

Designed by Jill Vieth of White Hart Design on Nantucket, this kitchen recently won the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston’s Gold PRISM Award, which recognizes the finest projects and outstanding achievements in the home building industry. The kitchen beautifully blends manmade materials with those made by Mother Nature. Here, Vieth mixed Neolith surfacing with gorgeous natural stone—both supplied by Marble & Granite, Inc. Neolith in Concrete serves as countertops while a full-height backsplash of Royal Danby Marble covers perimeter walls. The result is an eye-catching space that’s clean and modern as well as warm and welcoming. 
Ultra-slim Neolith is ideal for kitchen countertops 

Ultra-slim Neolith surfacing provides a countertop that’s nearly indestructible. Though it’s an engineered surface, Neolith is made up of 100-percent natural materials including clay, feldspar, silica, and mineral oxide. This makes it a waterproof material that’s resistant to scratching, stains, UV rays, cold, heat, fire, and smoke. Since Neolith comes in lightweight sheets as thin as 3-millimeters and as big as up to 144-inches by 48-inches in length, it is ideal for creating large seamless countertops. It’s an exceptionally durable material that can handle very high traffic and abrasion. Since Neolith is completely impervious to liquids, it’s a very hygienic surface that won’t harbor bacteria. Best of all, Neolith is very easy to clean and virtually maintenance-free. 
Concrete Neolith and full-height Royal Danby Marble make a perfect combination. 

Adding a bit of contrast, Royal Danby Marble covers the backsplash. By taking the backsplash to the ceiling and also covering the range hood, Vieth created visual texture with the darkly veined marble, creating a sense of modern luxury.
