The finishes are the same, but check out some of the new fixture styles I'm loving. I'm also digging some plays on the classic patterns. Sure we've got the hex and subway tile in there but these versions are elongated. Planks are still going strong and I threw some penny rounds in there for shits and gigs. The part I really want to implement going forward is some geometric pattern whether it's like this modern wainscoting or tossing around some X's in barn doors or capping off island ends. This could really get fun and ridiculous.
Finally, the material section. I'm still loving the ceramic tile, marble and natural wood obvs. Guys, I still dig me some granite. It is just so random and delicious. The variations are wonderful. It's a natural product. I love it.
Now, let's talk about the quartz. People are all over this stuff here in Phoenix. Did I mention I moved? I say people are obsessed with it from the perspective of a person that has been looking for and talking houses here for 1 week...K. Clearly I don't have that much research under my belt. I'm not sold on quartz. It's a natural material-ish. Supposedly, in my 5.3 seconds of Googling, quartz counters are 96% crushed quartz jammed together with a resin. Scientifically speaking. Resin ain't real, people. Sometimes they throw glass in there. I don't like sparkly specks. I don't like glass in my counters. I like real. Maybe I'm just a quartz newb and don't know what I'm talking about. They say it's easier to maintain and more durable. I've had granite for YEARS and have never had an issue. It's not like it's going to melt away. Or, maybe like me, people just got bored with the same thing. That's possible. My answer to that is to stop using Uba freakin' Tuba. Unless it's leathered Uba Tuba. That's cool.
What was I talking about again?
Let's end this post right here. Shall we?
