Black countertop help

andreacolsonOctober 18, 2011

Does anyone have black countertops in kitchen and NOT like them? I am always drawn to the look of them, but am worried that they will always look dirty/dusty. I would choose a "black" with slight variation of a couple of colors thrown in, but for the most part they would be black. Anyone have trouble with dust, dirt, watermarks?

We put black granite in our guest bathroom first and I do not like it. I love the look, but it is very hard to keep clean. For that reason, we've gone with New Venetian Gold in the rest of the house.

It is a very solid black, though. I don't know if something with a busier pattern would be easier to keep clean. We have the biggest problems with water marks since it's a small bathroom counter. It doesn't often get the opportunity to get dusty :-)
