Remember when I wrote here about my new granite counters when the installer told us that we had to have a four inch backsplash of the granite going up the wall? Well, I am so glad I researched it and then wrote a blog about it, because he was so wrong!
I assumed my so called granite expert knew what he was talking about. He has been installing counters for over 20 years. I told him at first how I wanted the backsplash tile all the way to the counter- no granite backsplash. He told me that was not a smart idea.
I am so glad that I stepped back a minute and though about it. Don’t rush me making such a big decision! After reading all of the helpful comments on my blog, I told him how I wanted it done, which was the right way.
So when your contractor//builder/painter/husband is pressuring you to make those big decisions, step back and do a little online research and also look at photos on Houzz and Pinterest. See all the different options on the ways it can be done, not just one. Then YOU make the choice and let him know what you want.
You will not regret it. Don’t let people intimidate you into decisions. They certainly do not always know what is best.
I hope you like how my kitchen redesign is coming out! Mike is doing a wonderful job. Still a lot of work to be done but it is getting done my way!
