I went looking for counter tops yesterday. I threw myself into the world of stone (figuratively, not literally). I went armed with the things that I need most. My Mom and my camera. In a sea of granite, quartz, limestone and marble I narrowed it down to one, which has always been my love – although I worry that it’s a bad decision.
So jumping back a bit – I feel like we’re in a bit of a standstill with the kitchen which is really self imposed because I’ve been just so busy. Being our own contractor, it falls on us to line everything up – which means a lot of planning, and a lot of leg work before anything happens. But while all that unravels, I figured I could tackle some things like counter tops and backsplash. But where do you start? I feel sometimes a little lost not knowing what to do. I decided to head to Olympia Tile in Toronto, with my Mom, to throw myself into the world of tiles to get my feet wet. It’s ok doing that, knowing that you don’t need to pick anything but to just test the waters.

What do you have? Here is the thing. I’m a very clean person. I leave little out on the counters. We use a cutting board anyways, so I wouldn’t be cutting things on the counter. But maybe I’m being super silly and impracticle? I feel like I’m no further along than I was before going out. 🙁
