Scale of 1-10...Kashmir White Granite vs Honed Cararra Marble

10 years ago

Like many others who really want marble in the kitchen but are being talked out of it by husbands, stoneyard experts, grocery clerks, colleagues, etc., I have turned my attention to white granites. I have samples of honed marble and KW granite. The granite clearly is unsealed and soaks up EVERYTHING. The marble etches and gets dings. Seems like you have to pick your poison with these choices.

So...on a scale of 1-10 which is more of a pain marble or white granite (KW)?

Alternatives I am considering are black granite or if I want to almost double my costs, Silestone Lagoon or Casearstone London Grey. This is in a new build kitchen with white cabinets and wood floors. Help!
