For the last 15 years granite has been hot in Arlington, VA… We bragged a lot about granite counters to potential buyers. NO MORE. Unless your designer picked a spacial color/style granite for you – please skip the granite isle. And go visit the Quartz or Silestone isle.
Yes – Quartz or Silestone (man made stone) is IN. It’s not new, but it’s the counter you should pick. The trend is to have lighter countertops and granite is usually dark or with a lot of color. And that does not go with the gray modern look that is currently so popular.
