I have had a lot of readers ask me about our kitchen countertops over the past year.  They are Carrara Marble slabs from Dominion Granite.  I love having marble in our kitchen, but I also don’t mind the patina that builds on marble countertops.  I like to think of them as my kitchen memoirs.  Many people stay away from marble because of 1.) the patina and 2.) the cost. Screen Shot 2013-08-27 at 12.43.26 PM

Now, take a look at these countertops.  What do they all have in common?

Don’t they look incredible?  At $16/ sq. ft. they are a great alternative to marble.  Formica sure has come a long way!
