But the biggest debate in our
Here's the breakdown of the dilemma:
- I love love love white marble counters with white cabinets. Visually speaking, they are always my favorite kitchens. (My pinterest page has been full of them for a very long time.) It's safe to say, I like the look of white marble counters more than black. But I don't dislike the look of the black counters.
- White marble has a tendency to etch, stain, and chip. I have done substantial research on this, and think I'm ok with a less than perfect finish (or patina -- which doesn't make it sound so bad) over time. Given these issues associated with white marble, Justin prefers the black granite over the white marble.
- The black granite is substantially cheaper than the white marble.
- I've thought about doing the island in the white marble and the remainder in black granite, but don't really like the look of that since the island isn't very substantial (and has the stove).
So readers, do you have a preference? What are your thoughts? Does anyone have either of these counters and wish to share some of their thoughts on them?
