The sale of my condo closes on April 30 and I am thick into the "planning for renovations" stage. I have even hired my own set of minions who will start making things pretty on May 3! At this point, things are going smoothly, but I live in fear that everything will suddenly collapse and I will be left will a disaster a la Holmes on Homes or that things will drag on for 5 years and cost me 10 times as much as planned.
So, rather than dwell on that, I am debating the more important things, like what surface to use for my kitchen counter top:
Option 1: Bianco Carrara Marble
Apparently a nightmare in the kitchen, but oh so lovely.
Option 2: Quartz Reflections Cesarstone
This is my current favourite, but it is so expensive and I don't know what people will think of it in a few years.
Option 3: Kashmir White Granite
Granite is not my favourite material. I find that there is just too much going on colour-wise unless it is very dark in colour. However, I do like this Kashmir White and the price is right. It may be the best of both worlds (price and durability) although I think that it may eliminate the use of my longed for blue glass tile backsplash.
My kitchen minion thinks that I should choose granite. What do you think?
