In all our travels on this crazy journey, we found some great products and services. This week I'll review the good stuff.
I didn’t give a second thought to concrete or metal. Just not my style. And laminate? Been there. Done that. Tired of it.
Initally I wanted solid surface or a Corian type. This manufactured product is impervious to bacteria, comes in a wide variety of colors, and can have a molded sink made of the same material for a seamless look.
For all of the above reasons, I thought my choice was easy. But darker colors showed marks. I almost went for a light beige color but something stopped me. Could be it was the dealer who said, “Don’t worry about scratches. It’s easy to fix. You just buff them out.”
Hm. Well my next thought was, easy to fix, easy to scratch. I decide to pass. Besides I did want a darker color.
Granite sounded nice but Wow, the price. Yikes.
I went one grade down and investigated quartz. This product has every color imaginable, impervious, 93% stone, easy to clean, no maintenance like sealing, and is less expensive than granite.
I chose Copper Patina, a rich brown stone with bits of coppery-colored glass scattered throughout the surface. It feels silky, not cold like stone or tile, and the hubby has caught me petting my countertop every now and then.
