Copper Counter Tops?

Selling a home today is a challenge.  Selling a home with custom details is EVEN MORE a challenge.  Today people prefer to keep things simple and run with the crowd.  HGTV say’s ” Granite” is the way to go.  The crowd buys Granite and all MOST buyers look for it in a home or think how they can add it.

Picture how I felt when I received a text from a client in a fabulous home, but had a high quality laminate counter.

Client: “I’m changing my counter tops”

YES-YES-YES

Client: “I’m going with a copper. I’ve always wanted this”

NO-NO-NO

Copper Counter Tops? I must admit, I have never seen then. I have two pictures of copper in my mind. The picture of the old fashioned shiny posts and roster shaped baking pans hanging on a great grandmothers kitchen wall, and the second NOT so pleasing. The ugly pennies stuck to the bottom of the cup holder in my car. Either way- this does not feel good to me.

I did a bit of research trying to brace myself for the review of her home this week, and found THIS site to be helpful. I even like some of the finishes. But which did my client do?

Stay tuned….
