Kitchen Renovation Partners

We partnered with some top brands on our kitchen renovation. Here are some more details about the companies we worked with and the products we chose:

Caesartone quartz surfaces are the ultimate combination of nature and technology. Non-porous, scratch resistant and highly resistant to stains, Caesarstone retains its beauty without sealants or waxes and is almost maintenance-free. Ideal for any interior space, Caesarstone stone surfaces have four times the flexural strength and double the impact resistance of granite while impressively outperforming marble.

Caesartone is globally recognized for its simplified fabrication and installation processes that enable cost-effective solutions. Due to the material’s outstanding durability, Caesarstone can be installed in thinner forms to save weight, or in larger sections to reduce the amount of joints on a surface. This enables even further money-saving features that customers happily applaud.

A sustainable material, Caesarstone is GREENGUARD certified and is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). For more information about Caesarstone and its products, please visit the company’s website at, or call toll-free 877-9QUARTZ (877-978-2789).

The color we chose for our Caesarstone countertop is Pure White.

Modwalls® is “Making Tile Modern” with unique and colorful tile designs and a hassle free online buying experience. Founded in 2005 by husband and wife team David Bousfield and Rebecca Lonergan, the couple used their experience in the Silicon Valley high tech sector to develop an online method of selling a typically brick and mortar product. Frustrated with limited tile options for their own remodel, the pair began creating unique glass mosaic blends inspired by mid century architecture and modern design and developed an online tile blender so that customers could design their own tile blends. The company has since expanded to other tile materials including recycled glass tile, cork mosaics and porcelain penny tile. Now recognized as an industry leader, modwalls products are featured regularly in publications like Sunset Magazine, Luxe, Dwell, This Old House and Atomic Ranch. Modwalls fosters great design through creative partnerships such as the Henry Road for modwalls glass tile collection and the new Rex Ray Studio for modwalls collection, which launched in 2011. Modwalls products are available 24/7 at
