I would love to have granite countertops, but they are way too expensive for us. At Lowe's we found some beautiful tile, that looks a LOT like marble and we were told it would actually stand up better than granite or marble. Since this would be a fraction of the cost, I am considering using this for our countertops and possibly hiring it done.

Some people have told me tile is a real pain, because of the grout. But with the sealing of the grout, I would think it wouldn't be much of a problem as long as we kept resealing it regularly. I would certainly appreciate some thoughts on this from people who REALLY know!!! Thanks!
