Black or dark grey countertops?
I am currently thinking about black or dark grey countertops, not shiny and not much pattern or movement. I don't mind patina, but I am not much for maintenance We might do a pennisula and if so it would be a likely spot for kid art projects and/or homework. Cost is definitely a consideration, but this is early days and no budget has been set. Anyone want to discuss the possible options?
Honed or leathered granite
Paperstone or richlite
Ceasarstone or silestone
I am ruling out corian and tile as I don't care for them.
Any other possibilities? Any thoughts on which options would be most durable? Any thoughts on cost (we are in Northern CA, where everything is pricey)?
