    All of those look hideous.

    Also I don't understand all of your posts here. Did you just win the lottery or something? Are you really trying to decide where and how to build a $100+ million house without doing any in person research? Who cares what other people think if money is no object (as you've mentioned in your other posts). If you have the money, go to a showroom and look at them in person and decide. Those are some terrible pictures (renders?).

    IMO, whatever material it is that makes the wife happy and gets her off my back is "best". I can play with the Ferrari configurator and look at pictures of modern and classic Ferrari for hours, but 3 minutes of looking at fabric swatches or kitchen concepts and I'm bored out of my gourd!

    Jeremy, I've repeatedly warned you civilly to moderate the pace of your polls. Not so much because we don't allow frequent election, but due to your surveys being nebulous and a few members express the confusion of your behavior. (including myself)

    Consider this now the third warning before a permanent ban. I would suggest you wait a least three months before 'another poll.' Also, not responding when asked point-blank questions, perhaps if you did, the context of your situation will allow us to understand your motivations.

    None of these. The best is carrara marble.

    Marble is hard to maintain and goes cloudy, if the wrong cleaning products are used it gets damaged easily. Go for Dekton you can't go wrong

    You are confusing with other types of marbles, such as travertino, which is very porous. A decent piece of carrara which was properly polished is easy to maintain and hard as f$ck.

    I posted Carrara Marble on Post #4. Is it better than Malachite (Green Gemstone) Post #7?

    I have no clue which one has better mechanical properties, and the color is a question about taste:

    I have used carrera on many projects and we stopped using it as customers always damaged it with the wrong cleaning products, the durability is not down to the polish it is down to the sealer used afterwards, anyway take it from me it is not as durable or as easy to maintain as porcelain or deckton, I would not recommend marble unless you want to have a specialist in twice a year using crystalline powered to make it look it's best. Lots of other large developers I know do not use it anymore not due to cost but, due to durability. Anyhow use what you want post a picture then come back and post about durability in a years time, I'll take a picture of what we are fitting and we can compare

    I just had my carrera marble polished for the annual polishing yesterday. Cost me $1,500 plus lunch for the 2 contractors :)

    @Fat Viking what do you like? Why do you keep asking us to choose for you? Also, when and where do you plan to move here to the United States to build your mansion and buy your Ferrari? (the other questions he asked, along with where all the 'hawt' women in modeling agencies are).

    That's cool. So you're a kid fantasizing about things you want in the future? I want to make sure I understand where you're coming.

    Honesty goes a long way with me.

    If my assertion is correct, let's start on the right foot. I would suggest you update your profile with your real age. That will also allow myself and others to recalibrate and be more patient and understanding with your queries.

    A 31-year-old asking your sort of questions is a put off from the start.

    Do you understand?

    paulchua,

    Does this definition come to mind when you see what Fat Viking is doing here online

    Trolling is defined as creating discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people by posting inflammatory or off-topic messages in an online community. Basically, a social media troll is someone who purposely says something controversial in order to get a rise out of other users.

    ..and just like that @Fat Viking proves exactly what we were all thinking...

    Sad too, gave him a good faith effort to say, yeah I'm a kid, and just very curious..etc, yadda,

    Son, with your attitude, and trajectory, the only way you're gonna get anything you're dreaming of is to win the lottery.
