I've spent much time recently following a DIY thread about the differences between all the different countertop surfaces, a matter my hubby and I are very interested in. I had started out very excited about a product called Granite Transformations (although there isn't a dealer near me), but after reading what many of the contributers had to say, I not only don't want to use GT, I don't even want to use solid granite (due to bacteria contamination). ...don't want Corian, maybe will go with quartz. It's been a really frustrating weekend. Just thought I'd share...... Now, aren't you glad? Any suggestions out there?
