    Default Fluff- Countertop (Personal)

    1. If money was not an object and you were redoing your kitchen, what kind of countertop would you get?

    2. If money was an object, but you still wanted something nice, what kind of countertop would you get?

    Thanks!

    I would go with granite. I know it is spendy but it last forever and looks great. They have some cheaper options of granite out there too, so look into options

    Would you ever consider a tile, or only a solid piece?

    I had tile in my old house, I didnt like it. I had it changed out because cleaning out the grout was a pain. My brother just put tile in his new kitchen and likes it but he says he plans on resealing the grout at least 2x a year.

    I hate granite counters, or maybe I just hate the really dark ones that everyone here seems to love. If you can't afford a big piece then you have an obvious seam from the grain lines and texture differences, and granite shows dust & streaks like crazy. We stayed at a place last year that had concrete counters and they were fabulous. They had little chips of colored glass and the top had been sanded & sealed, and it was so beautiful. The sink was built into the counter and the area just to the side of the sink was gently sloped so any splashes or draining dishes ran right back to the sink. And because concrete counters are custom-buit, there is no seam issue or trying to match colors on different pieces. I also like the look of slate, but it chips easily if you're prone to dropping things.

    I wouldn't do tile if you like to bake. I hated tile when I baked.

    I'm with Stacey on granite. I know it's what you should put if you want to increase value but I'm tired of it.

    So do you mind if I ask what you do want?

    haha I really don't know. More of knowing what I wouldn't want.

    I do like butcher block.

    We have looked into butcher block. I wonder how that would be as far as keeping it clean and being able to put something hot on it.
