Kitchen remodeling


while the previous comments can be quit valid. it seems to me that you are basicly happy with what you have. but, i KNOW that you would be happier, all around(price and look), with a stone colored laminate.

no doubt you would be far happier with real granite. footing the bill could make that a different story.

I paid $0 for labor for the Granite floor actually. Family member installed it along with Durock below the tiles. Coupled with extra granite tiles that a contractor didn't want from a project that he returned....on sale at the local big box store meant that this granite floor costed slightly more than a linoleum floor. Smart move ? Of course...

What point did you have? Instead of talking down to someone I would have applauded them on their efforts. Or are you one of those supposed "know it alls" like user gregzoll who states that granite countertops are not 100% granite. Come on folks who are you trying to fool here, lol. I love it though. I truly see who is trying to help vs screw members in this forum. How sad is that. Part of it may be jealousy. Oh well.

While the floor is nice, the amount of effort and the material cost to you doesn't really count as a point to whether it was an appropriate choice for the level of home it was installed into. Those issues are immaterial as to it's design suitability to it's surroundings.

Where people get into trouble is not looking at the whole picture of each decor choice and it's home within the home and neighborhood as a whole. Just because you enjoy home theater doesn't mean that you put a 50K home theater system in the spare bedroom of a 175K starter home. It would be inappropriate to the level of the home.

It's the same with something like custom inset cherry cabinets and Calcatta marble tops being chosen for a couple's first home in an entry level neighborhood. It's better to save the funds and effort and put it into a home where both would be an appropriate choice for the maybe the third home in the tony suburban location.
There's too much attitude on here. I'm out.
