@Douglas M - with you all the way! Granite is an ugly stone, always was, always will be. Hang practicality if every site of your benchtop makes you want to gag. Also, grey mania - bleh! Like most "on trend" colours it gets overused in inappropriate settings and that is what contributes to a colour becoming "dated".

I hate stainless appliances as well. I couldn't afford granite (or the recycled glass countertops we wanted) when we had to redo our kitchen but I WANTED formica since I couldn't afford the recycled glass! So many fun colors, styles. People think I'm nuts but my spouse agreed. I also love sheet vinyl although now they try to make it look like ceramic or tile or wood. And thankfully white appliances are cheaper cos I wouldn't go any other way unless I could afford the fun avocado or harvest gold. I had a pink fridge growing up! People, people, people enjoy your space, have fun with it. If you smile when you see your white cabinets, stainless appliances and granite countertops in shades of gray good for you but don't do it cos you think it's "in" and will sell better. Even if you sell in 5 years, it's gonna be considered OLD.
