I'm surprised at the amount of traffic my blog gets by people searching alternatives to carrara marble. It's obvious I'm not the only one that goes through the stress of wondering what counter top material to pick. Some people e-mail to ask whether we still love our counters as much as we did when they were installed and I can tell you it was the best decision to go with quartz. (I love, love the counter) But what made me want to re post this was that I watched this new online episode featuring Sarah Richardson, talking about counters - specifically quartz - that you may find helpful. It was also a nice confirmation of what we chose, to hear Sarah herself give the same reasons to go with quartz as we said a few months ago. :)
Just to remind you, here is a helpful page I ripped out of House & Home. Quartz falls under Engineered Stone.
See our kitchen "after" in this post if you want to remind yourself to how the Quartz looks in our house. Hope this helps my fellow kitchen renovators! xo Linds
