We're planning on making some kitchen improvements. I replaced appliances earlier this year, now moving on to floor tile and kitchen counters. The kitchen counters have the potential to be the biggest cost. I have looked at everything from real granite, quartz resin (Called Zodiaq at Lowes) and Corian (some kind of solid plastic). I like various aspects of each and have seen styles I like in each. All are in my budget. Just wondering if anybody has traversed this area recently and have any feedback on factors that affected their decision?
