Gray(ish) high maintenance as black?

Molly PhillipsDecember 27, 2012

We are going with white shaker cabinets (a popular choice here, I see!) but just cannot decide on a countertop.

We currently have either Uba Tuba or Black Emerald granite (not really sure which ) and I.HATE.IT. It shows every streak from my sponge, paper towel...anything, really. It never looks clean to me.

DH likes the contrast of dark counters/light cabs but I'm very scared of anything darker than a lighter brown. I do like the look of ceaserstone's pebble, raven, or cambria's sussex.

Are those as much trouble to look clean as the absolute black's of polished granites?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I have dark mottled gray Caesarstone and it doesn't show anything. Good, right? I think not so much. I like a pristinely clean and smooth counter and, since I can't see every little drip and drab, I miss stuff. I have to continually run my hands over the surface to find missed spots. I have white cabs and I love the look of dark counters, but I think next time I will go with light counters.
