Granite Counter Tops and Stainless Steel Refrigerators.

Can we all agree that we will stop equipping kitchens with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances?

I mean, yeesh. 10 years ago it seemed sort of, I don't know, fresh and cutting edge. But now? It's been done to death and seems like just mindless conformity. If the next apartment I move to has a stainless steel refrigerator, I'm painting the damned thing.

Make. It. Stop.

The thing is, granite is hard to clean and dulls knives, and stainless steel, once it gets a scratch, is really hard to get looking good again; ditto with stains on granite.

What is it with stainless, anyway? It looks (to my eyes) sort of cold and clinical. I expect stainless refrigerators in a setting like, I don't know, the morgue? In my kitchen, I'd like a little warmth, thank you.
