countertop for red birch cabinets?
We threw caution to the wind and ditched our natural maple cab idea for natural red birch because they are gorgeous.
So ideas for countertops? We were originally looking at granite. I found that I liked the look of soapstone online, but had never seen it live. The fabricator our KD works with sent us to Dorado in MA , where we fell in love with the soapstone look in their displays. We looked at Minas which is fairly plain with some veining , thinking it would really allow the red birch to shine.
But the sticker shock has made us hesitate. Compared to the stock granites, it's MUCH higher (and we got other estimates, so it's not just this fabricator)
I welcome any suggestions - granite with little movement , like one of the pearls? Or buy my appliances on time and throw the money into soapstone?
Any thoughts are welcome!!!
