Countertops, continued

Thank you for the amazing comments yesterday. It still remains that I’m in love with marble but still equally terrified. I’m still reading through all of the comments, taking my time and visiting the links that you’ve taken the time to include. (Thank you!) One of the links was from Jo, who directed me consider Cambria Quartz counters, and the style called Torquay. I have heard of Cambria, and when I saw the image my mouth dropped. GORGEOUS. I have yet to see it in person but it’s kind of awesome, no? Turns out it’s the counter from Ramsin Khachi’s own kitchen. It could be a nice way to get white into our counter tops, without me freaking out if someone is in our kitchen?

    I am actually having my Cambria Quartz countertops installed in the morning. I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve! I had all the same fears about marble and decided that this option was best. Good luck with your decision.

    I put honed white marble in my kitchen last summer. I will admit that it was probably not a lot of fun for my family for the first few weeks as I freaked out at anything they spilled on it. I have relaxed a LOT about then and can attest that after almost a year they have deceloped a beautiful "patina" and I could not be happier with then. They are stunningly beautiful! There is nothing that quite compares to the look of white marble. Sooo clasic. Good luck with your kitchen. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
