Hello AT,

I’m renovating our kitchen and deciding between granite and CaesarStone for the countertops. I thought I’d decided on the Coffee Bean color 6310.

However my granite guy swears I would regret choosing CaesarStone because it only looks good for a short time before the shine wears off.

Help, I can’t decide what to do. Has anyone bought CaesarStone and regretted it? Any feedback on CaesarStone would be much appreciated.

Thank you. Sharon
