My hubby and I went to the huge granite distribution center near Boston, MA today. So many beautiful granite slabs to choose from:
After much research, we narrowed our new kitchen counters choice between granite or quartz. Quartz is man-made and also very beautiful. Quartz is more expensive than granite, a fact I did not know:
But when we went into the showroom, we both fell in love with the individuality of each piece of granite:
I think it is amazing that Nature made these stones! We came prepared with our maple cabinet door:
One of my very favorites of the day (beautiful blue!):
God made this! Amazingly beautiful, but I think since it falls under the ‘exotic granite’ category, that makes me guess that it might be too expensive:
What do you think of these recycled glass slabs?:
I asked if people are buying these for their homes and she told me they are sold for mostly commercial projects:
So pretty and different. I bet they are going to be popular in the future. They come in so many different colors and they are good for our planet. My only problem with them is that they are too ‘busy’ for me to have throughout the kitchen. But on a freestanding kitchen island …. awesome.
I think we narrowed it down to two selections. The Blue Bahia:
OR the Viscont White Leather:
Both so beautiful! I think the Viscont White will look the best in our home with our stainless appliances. But I’m not absolutely sure! Has anyone else been through this process recently?
