I got all excited yesterday when I thought that the TV program might air the photo of my kitchen today ... and I assumed that the show was taped in the morning and aired that afternoon. That was an incorrect assumption, and now I know that the show tapes with a live audience and then airs from one to two weeks later.
I emailed the woman who first contacted me and asked if they had used my photo and she informed me that the show had not taped yet and even if they do use it, it won't air for a while. She also said "we found a kitchen that's a whole lot uglier than yours, so we may not use your photo." Mr. kenju said that was sort of an insult....but I call it a "backhanded compliment."
No one knows better than I that we need new countertops and back splash, but we are always a day late and a dollar short as the old saying goes. The other problem we have is that we can seldom agree on how to correct a decor situation. He would vote for granite and I want to see what the latest favorite thing is before I make a decision. Discussing it with a friend recently, I found out that stainless steel is replacing granite as the countertop of choice, and butcher block is coming in at a close second. I really like both of those choices, as they may be more durable or easier to fix if there is a problem.
Imagine that you need to re-do your kitchen and are trying to decide what surface you'll use on your counters....what would you choose and why?
