I've finally made a decision...

and I'm going with Formica's Soapstone Sequoia! Woo hoo!!
Since I wanted a finished edge around my peninsula, I had to go with their "ideal edge." I prefer the ogee over the bullnose.

When I used the Countertop Transformations kit a few years back, I bought a nice stainless steel sink and pretty bridge faucet. But I'm thinking it'll be too much grey and stainless.


In our first home I had an original, 1930's, massive (with drainboards) porcelain cast iron sink. Even though I occasionally broke a glass in there, I LOVED it!!!

It was similar to this one...

Since I don't have the room nor the $$ for such a wonderful monstrosity, I'm eyeballing a new white porcelain cast iron single bowl kitchen sink. I'll still keep my bridge faucet and clean her up a bit. She'll shine up like a new penny.
(I love that faucet)

I think it will look nice. Now I just have to wait...

Which is something I'm not very good at.
Wish me luck!!

I think that's the sink I have - Kohler Cape Dory? Here's mine:

I really love it. I got the stainless rack for the bottom of it and the cutting board that's made to fit. I never use the cutting board, but I'm so glad to have the rack. It really protects both your sink and your dishes.

That's the one, Erin!! Ooooh, it looks so nice!!! Yes, I planned on ordering the rack too. Lord knows with myself and my sweet hubs, we're going to need it! ;> )
Now that I've experienced a large single bowl sink, I will never go back to a double. You can wash anything in there! Including myself if I had too. ((giggle))
Your kitchen looks beautiful!! It's so exciting when any renovation is done is in the home! ♥

Thank you! It's been almost three years since we did ours, and I still love it. I'm with you - I'll never go back to a double sink either. I haven't missed it a single time, but there have been many times that I've been thankful to have the big sink.
