Kitchen Island material: Granite or Quartz

hopperhouseJune 16, 2011

We already installed Quartz countertops "Creama Botticino" and now I need to decide on a kitchen island surface. My cabinets are white, but my island base is a dark/reddish wood. Actually, the island is a large piece of furniture that came out of a department store (used to be a large display for shirts and ties). My original thought was to stick with the Creama Botticino quartz but now I am thinking of maybe a honed granite. The more I think the more confused I get. BTW, I have 3 kids.

If you haven't already, I suggest posting this on the "Discussions" side of Kitchens. This is the "Conversations" side that's for off-topic, general conversation types of topics. The Discussions side of Kitchens is for on-topic discussions concerning kitchen remodels. You will most likely get many more responses over there.

Good luck!

BTW...you're probably not receiving emails of follow-up postings, even though you checked the box requesting them. This is b/c you don't have the email option turned on in your profile. See the "Read Me" thread for more information. Scroll down to the post with the subject "Getting Emails Sent To You...3-step Process".
