Choosing Countertops

JollyRogersSeptember 19, 2012

I am sure you hear this question all the time.

I am having a hard time deciding between Daltile Morning Frost and Daltile Fresh Linens countertops. Our home is more modern than traditional looking and the cabinets are very dark brown shaker cabinets. I like Morning Frost but the Fresh Linens has a sparkle to it (difficult to see in pictures) which could also make it look interesting under kitchen light.

The backsplash is this.

The white in this backsplash is not pure white rather has blacks and greys as this is marble and differ from piece to piece.

Any suggestions appreciated ! Thanks.

From what I can tell online, it looks like Fresh Linens (left) matches the colors in the backsplash tile better, so if that's the one you prefer, it looks like a reasonable choice.

Happy to help.

I have one question for you - your bs tile is very pretty. It seems to have a 3D element where the glass tiles are thicker than the stone. I was just wondering whether this might be tough to clean - or even tough to grout, although that's not a problem as long as you're having it installed by someone else. Good luck with the reno!
