Counter and Cook Top

We decided to go with the quartz.  Yeah!

We also decided to keep the cook top oven combo for now.  Our current cook top is a Whirlpool and after extensive googling, I found that the cut in the counter is the same dimension for all of their 30" products.  We do limit yourself to products that fit a 20.5" by 29.5" hole but there seem to be a lot of cooktops that will fit into that cut out.

They are coming to measure TODAY.  Gulp.

I have some decisions to make before the counter arrives the main one being what to do about the faucet.  

Our faucet has a long illustrious history with us.  I bought it for my kitchen in my last house. I wanted a single lever goose neck faucet which was almost impossible to find in 1997.

It looked perfect in my old house.  I liked it so much that when we decided to sell the house, I replaced it and brought it with me.  I still really like it.  Its great for filling large pots.

I am a bit concerned abut drilling three holes into he new counter for a 15 year old faucet.  I keep asking myself if I'm nuts. I'm not a fan of the pull down faucets that seem so popular these days.  I have seen too many that are broken and hang down at odd angles.  

I am hoping to end up with something that has this sort of feel to it.  Light and bright and clean.
