Two years ago I took a poll asking if you thought granite countertops would date the kitchens that had them in years to come. Readers at the time were pretty evenly divided between the ones who thought they were played out (“so last decade”) and those who said they were “a classic look that’s here to stay.”
We have all seen the couples on HGTV’s House Hunters and other real estate shows declaring their love for granite countertops–and turning down houses that don’t have them. But do most of us really feel like a kitchen is second rate without them?
I get asked about granite a lot. It’s a pretty major investment to make, so people want to know if it’s finally had its day as the go-to countertop or if it’s here to stay. I’m no expert (my own kitchen is decidedly untrendy–no granite in sight!), so I thought I’d take another poll to see if public opinion has changed in the past couple of years.
Tell us–are you still loving it? Or do you think it’s time to move on? If so, what kind of countertops would you most like to have?
P.S. While we’re on the topic of house trends, which ones do you think are on their way out?
