I wrote a post about this a while ago, and now, when it comes to making the final decision with my contractor, I can't make up my mind!
My dream kitchens have always featured white marble countertops with a simple square edge.

But, I also love the look of black granite countertops like these, and the cost is lower than marble.
Or maybe a mix of both materials in one kitchen like this?

But at the same time, I adore the intricate grain of marble and I actually don't mind scratches and stains (okay, maybe a little bit). But I've learned to appreciate the beauty of patina.
If cost was not an issue, I would have chosen marble in the blink of an eye. So now I am weighing down the pros and cons of both of these stones.
What would your personal choice be? I really can't decide now. Help!
