Quartz substitute for marble
I am in love with the look of carrera marble countertops, but I cannot convince my husband to give them a chance. Although I have shared many of your wonderful posts on marble countertops, he won't budge. So I set out on a search for a substitute, and we decided quartz is the best option for our needs. I was all set on Caeserstone Misty Carrera when a local fabricator mentioned a new product called Vicostone Carrara. She said it is the closest thing to marble she has seen. So I felt it was worth a look and ordered a sample. All I can say is WOW!!! Now I'm torn between this product and Caeserstone Misty Carrera. Caeserstone definitely wins out as far as stability and reputation are concerned, but the Vicostone product really does look more like marble!!! Has anyone heard of Vicostone? I was told it used to be sold under the parent company of Stylenquaza. Here is the website, but it does not seem as established as other quartz companies like Cambria and Caeserstone. They also have a newer color coming out that looks a lot like Calcutta Marble with the prominent veining.
What would you guys recommend? Should I go for the company taht is the most known or the surface I think looks the best? Thanks in advance!!
