Granite vs porcelain - butt jointing and longevity
What attracted me to granite was the fact that it can be butt-jointed. All the porcelain I've seen has visible grout, something I want to avoid.
Also, I'm looking for the least maintenance. There will be sand in the home (on the beach) so marble is out.
Any tips on what to choose? I'm leaning towards granite but don't want that 'commercial' look. Where can I find interesting patterns? Thanks for any info.
