What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. The kitchen is a historical artefactThe ’80s really were great. It was a time of exciting change, wealth, excess and unforgettable fashion. The music is still fabulous to this day, as are so many of the cool clothes. Alas, the kitchens weren’t so memorable. While there’s nothing wrong with our kitchen in a practical sense – it has everything a kitchen needs, such as a sink, a stove, even a late-addition dishwasher – it lacks modernity. How I would love a granite or, dare my ambitions be too lofty, a concrete countertop. What I wouldn’t give for a kitchen island, so I can talk and prepare food while my guests marvel at my wonderful wall-to-wall pantry. Remedy: How I dream of a colourful backsplash, or a simple subway tile. I, like many Houzzers, I’m sure, will have to make do with a change of cupboard handles, a really good overhaul of my cluttered countertops, and maybe a few new stools for my inadequate kitchen seating area.
