This summer, Melissa Gorga and her family have been enjoying the heck out of their new $1 million Jersey Shore home, a 3,500-square-foot waterfront abode with a seaside deck, pool and covered patio in Toms River, NJ that has been the site of some of the most fun-looking family and friend gatherings we saw all season.
One of the home's most inviting indoor attractions is its huge eat-in kitchen with brand-new stainless steel appliances, plenty of prep space and sparkling white countertops, which The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom showed off on her Instagram Stories.
"I know you've been asking about this countertop: it's quartz," she revealed. "I got it from Five Star Granite and Marble — they're in Palisades, New York, but they did travel all the way to my Shore house. They were absolutely professional and amazing so I'm definitely giving them a shout-out here because I think that they deserve it."
Having an almost all-white kitchen can be a daunting prospect to keep clean, especially when live right on the water and have kids running in and out of the house. But Melissa says that this material makes it easy.
"The quartz is so low maintenance and fresh and clean and pretty," she said. "And the best part about it, if you ask me, are these waterfall edges. That's what everybody loves about it, just like this neat, clean edge. I feel like that's so in right now... if you're looking for countertops, this is the way to go."
The Gorga Shore kitchen looks like a wonderful place for indulging in the joy of cooking and for bringing friends and family together over food.
