An FYI prompted by HGTV
In anticipation for our move, I've been watching way too much HGTV. I am being driven nutso by the buyers who enter a home and immediately say "oh I wanted granite countertops and stainless steel appliances". The kitchen could be beautifully remodeled but people still want their granite and SS. NEWSFLASH: Granite and stainless steel will not make your food taste better and cook itself. Stainless is going to be the Avocado Green and Harvest Gold of the millenium generation. Now, my kitchen does have stainless steel appliances but that's only b/c the microwave and dishwasher were already there when we bought it and we want them to match. I wouldn't rip out a perfectly good appliance just for the sake of having stainless. Oy. Time to step away from the HGTV On Demand channel.
