Adorned Homes featured Viatera® countertops in a recent home remodel. Owned and operated by husband and wife duo Dan and Katie Kurtz, Adorned Homes brings a spectrum of services to clients including home listing, selling, renovation and design. The pair’s skill set supports this broad offering; Dan is a certified master plumber, and Katie is a real estate agent with a back ground in design. The team was tapped to renovate a home in desperate need of upgrades to appliances and design. They performed a total remodel of the home and featured Viatera in the kitchen and master bathroom.
Before the remodel, the age of the house was apparent in both its design and functionality. “The home’s aesthetic was very 1990’s,” Katie Kurtz said. “You could tell the kitchen’s age from the blonde oak cabinets and dated appliances. The bathroom had a sunken tub with old tile and fixtures.”
The kitchen and bathroom were completely redesigned in a modern, bright style featuring Viatera® in Rococo in each space. “I like to use the same countertops throughout the house,” Kurtz said. “It provides a sense of continuity and a flow from room to room. Viatera Rococo was the perfect choice for tying them together.”
NATURAL BEAUTY, ENGINEERED DURABILITY
Kurtz landed on Viatera® after scouring brands in search of the perfect product. “I was immediately attracted to Viatera Rococo,” Kurtz said. “Warm tones didn’t fit with this project, and I loved the soft gray and white marbling. It was exactly what I was looking for.” Kurtz was also impressed by the durability of the quartz surface material. “Durability is a huge factor in choosing countertop materials, especially for kitchens and bathrooms,” she said. “The nonporous surface of Viatera® ensures there won’t be any staining throughout the life of the product, a problem that might occur after only a few months with natural marble.”
