If you could pick (or have picked) any material for your dream countertops what would it be? Granite, concrete, marble, tile, corian (or similar), etc...

  • We replaced the counters in both of our bathrooms with granite, and I love it. We have granite tile in the kitchen that we kept because the granite tiles match the granite tiles around the fireplace. If I had built the house though, I wouldn't have picked those. I would have gone for slab granite. I just like the color variations and character in granite.

  • Id like to have Corian for my counter tops, but it would be WAY cheaper to get granite.

  • I would love any of those as long as it is a light color. The kitchen counter that I have is multi-colored browns and dark. I can't figure out a paint color that would look good on our cabinets.

  • We did quartz. It is a stone based composite counter top with the look and feel of granite or marble with out the need to seal it. It has a higher rating in consumer testing than does corian materials and we love ours.
