If you’ve followed along the kitchen process you’ll know that I’m in love with the look of Carrera marble for our counter tops, but after a lot of research, Aubrey and I decided that marble isn’t right for our house. Which meant the hunt was on to find a counter that will give me the look of carerra marble but without the stress. The substitutes are no less expensive than marble but much more durable, more resistant to stain, and less upkeep.
Originally I was almost certain that we’d be going with Cambria in Torquay, but after last weekend when we placed the tiles/counters/cabinet together, I realized we needed to play closer attention to the different tones of white to make sure that the Ikea Adele looked as close to white as possible. Although part of the problem was resolved by switching out the tiles I wanted to make sure we tried every combination of counters to make sure we’re going wit the right one.
So today, new countertop samples in hand I broke it down to the following contenders. Ceasarstone in Misty Carrera, Silestone in Yukon Blanco and Cambria in Torquay. So, I’m debating which goes best with the white subway tile and the Ikea Adele cabinets.
