matte vs glossy countertops
I've had formica or matte finished countertops in my past kitchens. While granite is lovely I am not a huge fan, so I'm looking at Eternia (a quartz product) or corian in a minky-brown shade. For budget reasons, I'm not looking at Silestone, Caesarstone etc.
Because it's a flat color opposed to specks of stone, I'm worried about the constant upkeep in a glossy finish.
I can't get the glossy Eternia honed so my next choice that carries the color I want is a matte finished Corian..which my KD has told me looks "cheap and plastic looking". That statement annoyed me to no end.
So to those of you that have a glossy "one color" countertop, how high maintenance is it? I'm a lazy neat freak and use my kitchen alot, so the thought of seeing fingerprints etc & having to windex it constantly isn't thrilling.
