were remodeling a home to live in. I laugh when a state remodeling were building a house from 60% of a house. Wrapping up the master bathroom with the kitchen a couple months away.
I scored on an island that has granite top hinged hydraulic shelves that drop back into the cabinet for two appliances like a mixer.

Matching the granite will be hard Im looking at cost effective options for countertop like custom made butcher block or a really thick counter with Formica we work a lot of dough. Personally I’m not that fond of Stone it’s cold, hard on knives scratches and is big money. Ive had great luck with Formica and have installed enough of it to be able to do that myself but it’s not any cheaper than butcher block when it’s all done. But I don’t know anything about it’s performance. Id want it to be at least 2” or more thick. Does it require a lot of maintenance and how does it hold up to water and food oils etc.

Next is sink and faucets. My current home has a 32” x 21” 60/40 sink it’s not enough. Im looking at 42” farm style sinks my wife has one hang up it has to have rounded corners in the bottom of the bowls which is an issue in the stainless ones that I’ve found. There’s another option two separate sinks but that poses an issue with a faucet with the reach for two sinks without going to something that’s to commercial looking. Maybe I’m asking for to much.

Any thoughts
