I received more Formica laminate samples in the mail...

My response to the majority of them was "oh, heck no."
But there was one... One that was rather pretty. Again in the grey- greige color. It's a new color called "Silver Quartzite" with the scovato finish. The only problem is the samples are about the size of a Chiclet. Seriously, how can anyone tell how a countertop would look like with a sample that size??

I still have Soapstone Sequoia on the brain.

I don't think you can go wrong with either. The soapstone looks like it has longer veins and the other shorter and more random but until you see a larger sample or a finished kitchen photo, it's a crap shoot. I have the real soapstone and we both hate it. Next time, back to Formica.

I have heard that from others, Marly. Everytime I think I want granite, marble, soapstone or quartz I think about how I'll probably spill paint, drop paint brushes with paint on them and lean the ladder up against this kind of countertop. (Like I do now) :> )
I would drive myself insane worrying about the countertop and keeping it clean and pristine. Our home is very much lived. One of my favorite excuses er I mean "expressions" is "a clean house is a sign of a dull woman." ((giggle)) ;> )
