Countertops

Tell me about your countertops - granite, quartz, solid surface.

What did you go with?
What do you / don't you like about them.
What would you do different?


Go!

Granite in the kitchen. Love it. Phobia did my master bath in concrete and it's badass.

When Phil did our concrete countertop, he added little river pebbles. Then when he sanded it, it made a multicolored look like granite but more unique. I'd consider it for my kitchen as well

I liked how we did your shower seat so well, that's how I did my tops for my kitchen.

Good luck!
We went with an engineered stone over granite. It was more expensive, but doesnt require any maint. unlike granite. It was more expensive though....i think its called Silestone?

We have granite and love it. Its easy to clean and is so hard. I love being able to put tools and such on it without worrying about scratches or anything.

What is all this maintenance you guys are speaking of? I am supposed to be feeding and watering it or something?

I thought making concrete countertops was suppose to be inexpensive?

So you're telling me expensive and we all know very heavy? Pass then.

We have some friends who got quartz and seem to like them. I like it also. They told me that they weren't terribly expensive. Think they spend 2-3 G on their whole setup. (naturally this changes depending on the amount you need)

I'm personally a fan of granite and soapstone but I hear they're both very expensive.

You have to keep granite sealed, and stains can be really hard to get out.

Concrete isn't really for us. Our kitchen is not modern overall, so I don't think concrete is a good fit. We've had them on a couple of projects, and I've never been pleased with the overall consistency in edge profile, etc.

We're not seeing a big difference in granite vs. quartz pricing for the colors we've like so far, so that's not a factor.
