  • Kitchen Countertops

    Looking to replace my countertops...actually the entire kitchen, but that's another thread.

    I am not in love with granite. Partially due to the speckled way it looks and because of the required maintenance.

    Am looking for alternatives....formica and such are out of the question.

    Granite counter tops are so overdone and so last season. (As are under mount kitchen sinks ... but you didn't ask my opinion)

    Formica is a brand name for laminate counter tops. You are really limiting yourself by dismissing laminates. So many great new options are available these days with laminates.

    Silestone/quartz counter tops may be one option.

      Laminate countertops and flooring all seem to deteriorate too quickly.

      I heard quartz prices are rising rapidly. Maybe Quartz is the new Grante.

        my fave is carrara

        but not practical for most peeps

        marble
        quartz
        soapstone
        honed granite
        glass
        travertine (some of these don't have the specks etc that granite has)

        a little different

        butcher block
        concrete
        recycled materials
        stainless steel

          I did some shopping around this weekend, and took a liking to butcher block. Dunno though, have to do more research on how it stands up against bacteria. Also the maintenance, and what exactly happens as it ages.

          Gotta look up Carrara.

                          Hush. For over 20 years I shook my fist at my gold-flecked sheet linoleum floor and blue formica kitchen counters until one day I tore them up

                              Need to replace my refrigerator and gas stove. Not a fan of stainless steel, saw a deep gray so going to research that.
