White kitchen Counter Choice
I need to make a decision about the counter for my new kitchen. We are doing white uppers/lowers on perimeter, and deep wood stain on the island. The room is open concept - kitchen/dining/living room with oak floors stained gunstock.
I know that there has been a ton of talk about different kinds of stone like quartzite, but my question is more about colour/design and livability. I have 3 boys in the preteen/teen years. I cook/entertain a lot. Here are the 3 directions I'm going:
1. White princess quartzite - gives me the look of marble that I love. Concerned about cost and some questions about durability
2. Lyra or Misty Carrera quartz - worried that it looks "fake" and lacks depth
3. River Valley/White Valley granite - beautiful and adds warmth but it's further from my original dream of marble.
Would love some input. You are all amazing here!
