There has been a lot of researching going on at the Bixler household recently, and I have found way more information than I ever wanted to know about tile, countertop, brick, etcetera, etcetera. Styles come and go and just as popular are granite was, the era has passed. Quartzite , quartz, and solid materials are all very popular now. People are leaning towards natural materials . I am still in love with marble , but the problems are the cost and maintenance. Therefore, I started looking into other marble countertop alternatives.
On Wednesday, we went to a granite facility which was pretty cool .. thanks Dan at Toro Granite for taking the opportunity to meet with us:
I also did quite a bit of research before I went so I knew what questions to ask. At first, we were going to have all quartz countertops, but this became too high for our budget so we settled on it just being in the kitchen, master bath, and butler’s pantry. There are approximately 12 materials to choose from when picking out countertops: quartz, granite (honed or polished), laminate,wood,marble(honed or polished), stainless steel, glass, recycled,concrete,soapstone, travertine (polished , tumbled, or honed), and tile.
