To Granite or Not To Granite, that is the question...
Starting to go from the floor plan stage to interior planning. Originally I thought we wanted granite as we have never had it before and always thought granite was the best.
Now I have two considerations that I never thought about before.
1. Granite doesnt seem "special" anymore. Even the cheap houses in developments have granite now. I am far from wealthy, but cost really isnt a factor for something that will be used for the next few decades.
2. With all the new products that are available I am not sure that granite is the best material anymore.
DH is a huge slob when he cooks. I need countertops that can handle anything and dont need much maintenance because time slips away from me a lot
I am thinking about cream or off white cabs and a countertop in the brown/tan family.
I am not sure what its called in the trade, but I dont like the countertops that have large chunks of material in it. I am also not a huge fan of veining.
At this link, for instance, I love New Haven, but I hate Brownhill and Sutton.
If fellow GWers could please post images and reviews of your countertops and suggestions I would appreciate it.
