So we decided to go with countertops (instead of flooring from my previous thread). We originally chose a quartz (no reason other than I liked the color/style)...but then we found a granite that we loved. If you have granite countertops in the kitchen I'd love to hear your thoughts! Stain resistance...heat resistance...maintenance...how well they hold up...pros/cons etc. Of course the guys at the store told us all the facts but I'd love to hear from people who aren't selling me the product!
