granite too upscale?
I know I have to redo my kitchen cabinets, as stained formica with chrome edges seems to be a tad outdated. The appliances are white, with a chip or two, but fine. This is a starter home, a small 4 bedroom colonial, no basement, 1 car garage, on a 1/3 acre in a pleasant safe community. There is a LR, DR, Fam R, but smallish kitchen and no breakfast area.
So we are headed for white Ikea cabinets, and home depot level. Do we have to do granite? Is there a cheaper way? I have a mental block about getting granite for somebody else after living with chrome for twenty years.
