Are white quartz countertops a fad?

12 years ago

Hi. First post. I know the quartz vs granite topic has been beat to death, but I am still struggling...Getting ready for a kitchen reno. Open concept space. Givens: Light (clear) maple hardwood floors, espresso stained maple cabinets, stainless appliances, replacing sliding doors to patio with 8 foot french doors (9 ft ceilings). The issue? countertops. I admit to being a trend follower. So the white quartz contrasting with the dark cabinets seems like a no brainer! I like Caesarstone, Blizzard and Organic White. But my wife thinks the white quartz is cold and plain and looks 'plasticy' and that this look (which seems to be everywhere right now) might be a fad.... She would like to go with a light granite without too much movement. I also like the light granites but I am a bit concerned about the porousness of light granites (like Kashmir White,...). The creamy, brown quartzes do nothing for me. Anyway, I am wondering what people's predictions are for the long term outlook of white quartz counters. Thx :)
