Kitchen remodeling help, please: What is the best kitchen counter top material, gas stove, refrigerator and fridge?
We are renovatig our kitchen in our primary residence, a family cottage in a Seattle suburb. As far as the counter top goes, I'm looking for a hard-wearing, easiy sanitized, attractive material that will look good in a decade (think: resale value). I'm also looking for value for money with the appliances (again: resale value). We're probably going to refinish our wood cabinets with a whitish paint and nickel hardware.
