We are thinking of replacing our counter tops in the kitchen. Granite has been popular for a number of years now. Do you think that its day in the limelight is near an end or has it got a long time in the popularity corner yet to come. I am concerned that if we put granite in, in a few years it may be considered old fashioned, being booted out of popularity by new choices.
If you think granite will be around as " the thing to do in your kitchen" would you have a preferrence to quartz over granite or the other way around. What are the pros of one over the other???
What do you think of orion.
I have cambria quartz- I love it as no sealing is required. I looked at all kinds of surfaces- most granite, soapstone, limestone, marble, concrete were higher maintenance and more permeable to stains and bacteria.
