Granite Selection Help - Opinions Wanted
I would love a sounding board. We're planning a white kitchen - white cabs, white backsplash, med-dark wood floors. The counter has been vexing - was originally thinking soapstone and then switched over to super white quartzite and we're down to two granites. The first one fits into my vision perfectly and I really love it. The second one is beautiful and my DH loves it, but it doesn't fit into the kitchen that I've been envisioning. That said, I've pretty much made all the decisions (because I'm the one that researches and cares), so I'd like him to feel that he was actually part of the process. I also really like it. The coloring is actually more versatile and warmer and may be easier to work with in our open floor plan. Other the other hand, it's got a lot going on and I can't envision how it's going to look. What do you think?
My slab (Snowflake)
Close up of dark area - you can see beautiful gold fleck that blend in well the primarily gray/white tones
DH's slab - (it wasn't pulled out, so I couldn't get a full shot)
One of many cool elements in the stone
I really need to order the sinks tomorrow (Mine - Cinder Silgranit, His - Truffle Silgranit)
