the confessions of a cottage lover
i don't want to offend anyone here. but i am going to use a strong word. i hate granite countertops. i have them, so i can say that, right? i have always hated them. in two previous houses where we got to choose our kitchen countertops, i chose a tan corian. i think corian is softer on the eyes because it isn't so busy. maybe granite is just a masculine thing, my husband loves it. but it reminds me of petrified jungle animals. my preference would be marble (like in the bath above) with a butcher block island. from what i hear and read though, both marble and block are very impractical. so back to corian. i just had to get that off my chest.
