Faith's Kitchen Renovation: How We Finally Got Our Carrara Marble Countertops — Renovation Diary: Faith's Budget Luxe Kitchen

Faith's Kitchen Renovation: How We Finally Got Our Carrara Marble Countertops — Renovation Diary: Faith's Budget Luxe Kitchen | Home Remodel | Scoop.it
There was nothing quite so angsty in my kitchen renovation as the countertops. Maybe it's because I was coming from a rental kitchen with truly awful laminate countertops, countertops that were not only dirty cream in color but textured with deep wrinkles, like rhinoceros skin, never clean and never smooth; but I was convinced that the countertop choice would make the kitchen. Countertops are the difference between easy cleaning and dread. Countertop material changes the light in a kitchen, and is the surface under your hands and food. For me, kitchen renovation meant finally having countertops that were beautiful, bright white, and easy to clean. And not too expensive, my husband added. Marble was the natural choice. Right? Right! Here's the story of how we overcame our fears, and found our honed marble countertops.
