remodeling our 22 year old kitchen. Decided on quartz for countertops. Stainless steel appliances. Keeping our medium-light stained solid oak cabinets & light (buckskin hue) tile floor. Wondering whether lighter or darker countertops are the trend? Also the decorator recommended a different, darker quartz for the center island. Any thoughts. Enjoy this forum, went with GE cafe dual range replacing the 22 year old Jenn air electric downdraft after reading all about ranges here. Really looked at the Viking professional & designer series, too. The jenn air still works great and only needed a repairman once!
