Marble Counter Tops
Hi .... looking for an alternative to white marble kitchen counter tops. Love the look, but they lack durability. I've read about Ceaserstone,but it has mixed reviews. Anybody have any alternatives they can share? (or thoughts on Ceaserstone) Thank you very much!

Soapstone is your best bet for a natural, matte, organic look like marble. You'll have to be happy with gray though, because it only comes in shades of gray. Personally I love Caesarstone but don't see it as an alternative to marble.It is so totally uniform and very shiny. I don't think of either of those characteristics when describing marble.

Marble is certainly in style again. Almost all quartz companies are now offering a marble look a like these days. I personally install Ceaserstone every day and love it. Silestone has some great selections that resemble marble as well.

You may want to look into the new sealers from DuPont such as the bullet series. These are the sealers that gave marble a comeback in our area. They provide long term protection, on the 15 year product the warranty is pretty impressive.

Good Luck
