Want Cambria Torquay but the slab is too small!
As part of my kitchen remodel I am planning on a very large island that is curved on one end to provide seating for at least 4 barstools. In order to cut the island top out of one slab of material it would require a slab that is 63x112. We were hoping to use Cambria Torquay for the island top, but Cambria slabs are only 54X119, so I would likely have a huge seam running right down my island. Needless to say I am a bit disappointed.
What alternatives do I have? I am looking for a countertop that is similar in appearance to marble with the durability and maintenance profile of quartz.
I am the type of person who likes things to look brand new forever, so quartz is very attractive to me. I have also been looking at some of the quartzites out there, but I am a bit concerned about durability and maintenance. I am a very neat person, but will likely have kids in the near future so I worry about what may happen to the counters.
