I was excited to have white cabinets and black granite counters when we moved in. I soon found out after a handful of years that these cabinets were laminate and FALLING apart. The granite counters were pieced tile and the side of the island broke off one day!!! We have done a low budget update with plans for full gut in the future. (NEVER PUT A FRIDGE BEHIND AN ISLAND LIKE THIS) As much as I wanted to do it right away, now I am glad I waited to see what I really want in this room!
