I agree that's a concern. The planks are 6" x 24", so I'll have to be sure the sub-flooring is level. It would suck to have them all installed and see them start cracking.

I tend to like warm, saturated colors. However, there are so many windows in my house that it's not overwhelming. And I'm planning white woodwork, which will make those colors really pop. (I'm going to coat the trim boards with several thin coats of appliance paint so I don't have to touch them up and they're easy to clean.)

It's probably because that clear epoxy is expensive, and any other finish would make the counter prone to burns, chips, and cuts.
