Everyone on HGTV needs the granite/SS kitchen. I agree with the aesthetics of the "updated" kitchen, but is the look any more timeless than a kitchen from the 1980s or 90s? There is some added utility to the granite counter, right? It's non-porous and scratch-resistant. Does that mean that granite will still be the go-to material in 10 years? However, stainless steel is merely a superficial facade that adds nothing to the operation of appliances. I wonder if the $30k top-of-the-line kitchen renovation will still look good in 10-15 years, or if there will be new materials to displace the granite/SS that is necessary today. What are your thoughts? Dude, it won't look good in 10-15 days, much less years.
