Hi all. Need advice. We are installing a new breakfast bar after taking a wall down and we are building out the cabinets ourselves and are trying to choose a material for the counter. Our other countertops are old and we will be replacing eventually and this new area does not connect so we are thinking granite or corian? Thoughts?? I love marble but don't think it's practical in the kitchen and I imagine this area is going to get a lot of use.

I worry about wood and keeping it looking good. I think stone would be best.

What counters do you think are best?!?!
