While it is fun to design for others, it can be quite frustrating designing for myself. I can think of about a thousand options for one solution. Working alone, you quickly realize how important the client's opinion is to the design process. Limits are placed on the design based on the client's needs, likes and dislikes which creates boundaries and narrows down options. When working on my own project, I don't have those boundaries, so my mind is continually redesigning the space. Since I don't have a design partner or assistant, there isn't anyone else to ask. My family isn't any help either. They don't really care! "Whatever you like Mom or honey" is all I hear. This can be good and bad!
Why am I in a quandary over this decision? If this was my forever house, it would be a no brainer, I would choose marble but we aren't! We have been in this house for 17 years and chances are good we will move within the next few years.
If we were to sell the house, would marble be less appealing to potential buyers?
This is the ever returning question that is holding up this design process.....
Do I go ahead and use the marble I love for my countertops or do I choose granite, which I know is better for resale, even though I am not really a granite kind of gal? I know I can also use soapstone, concrete, solid surface or Caesarstone, but it still comes down to marble or granite. I choose marble over all those other options, but the issue is really resale.
Please give me your opinions!!! Marble, love it or hate it?
What about this option? Have you seen IdealEdge by Formica?
Looks pretty good here. Has anyone used this...
