I probably would have gone in the opposite direction as you are thinking. You are right, you do NOT want marble, unless your kitchen is just for show. I would have gotten something almost slate-like - a more even gray - less "natural" looking. But I do think it looks good like this. I was going for the "operating room" / "hospital" aesthetic. I am told that would not have been comfortable long term, so this was the most I was willing to compromise.
