I have been looking for countertop material for a while now and it is just a nightmare for me. I have to find something by Wednesday.
I have my heart set on doing something flashy for a backsplash so wanted the countertop to be more subdued. I have been looking for quartzite and all the stone yards around here (Los Angeles area) carry the same ones. I just haven't found anything that I love. Saw another SeaPearl slab yesterday and loved it but I am really hesitant to get something with color in it so I'm not limiting myself on paint color.
I was so frustrated yesterday after not finding the right thing that I am now considering marble. Every time I walked past marble to look for quartzite I would drool at every stone I saw.
I know some of the people on here have it so I would really love some feedback from those that have it on working surfaces. Looking at pictures on houzz it appears that it's usually used on an island. I only have a peninsula so it will be my work surface and that worries me. Am I nuts for considering marble?
My only other alternative is quartz which I love and have in my bathroom but I can't even decide on a color for that either. If anyone has opinions and would like to share pictures of any of the marble looking quartzes in your kitchens, I would love to see them.
