Or thoughts from planning my kitchen.
- Indians pay a premium for white. (I cannot speak for other non-Indians.)
- Stuff that shines costs way more than stuff that does not shine.
- Given a choice, my mother will almost always opt for white and shiny things.
- White granite is usually grey in colour, and also very speckled.
- Pure white granite is rare, and it looks fake and featureless. In fact, it looks pretty much like the stuff your toilet is made of.
- This does not stop white granite from being thrice as expensive as black.
- It’s easy to get ripped off.
- It’s easy to go along with it anyway. Especially when the alternative is saying no after having said yes.
- I’d rather be disliked than ripped off. This I’m only just beginning to learn. And it’s saving me some money.
- But I’d also rather be ripped off than inconvenienced. This I’ve always known to be true, and it’s always been losing me some money.
- My entire kitchen fits into about a fourth of my bedroom.
- Quartz and other engineered stones are gorgeous. They are also way more expensive than black granite, but cheaper than the toilet variety of granite.
- Quartz and other engineered stones are not built to resist much heat. Google will tell you this. But your quartz salesman won’t.
- The most beautiful marble it more beautiful than the most beautiful granite, and almost as cheap as the cheapest granite too. But nobody care about marble anymore.
- I think is sad.
- None of this is truly necessary. And yet it must be done.
