Well I can't live without an open concept main floor with a family room in the kitchen, and a great room that has high ceilings. I also need crown molding and ideally a tray ceiling. Hardwood floors are a must, carpet is gross. And since you can never change light or plumbing fixtures EVER, I have to like those.

Also required are walk-in closets in every bedroom, double sinks in the master bath, and a second floor laundry room. No lugging dirty clothes to the basement for me.

A house must have curb appeal, it must include at least a two car garage, and the desk has to be two tiers, not just one.

I have to love all the paint colors because I can't be bothered to make the trip to Sherwin Williams.

Oh... and the kitchen. The kitchen has to have high-end cabinets (preferably a dark color), with an undermount sink, and the holy grail of kitchen finishes:

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES

Because really, I can't be expected to live without

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES

I don't care that stainless steel attracts fingerprints and dirt like a light bulb attracts bugs outside on a summer night. It doesn't bother me that every piece of glass I own will end up in shards on that countertop. It's never even occurred to me that in 10 years granite and stainless will be as dated looking as harvest gold and avocado green. Because the only possible materials acceptable in my kitchen are

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES

If it's anything other than

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES

I will have to gut it and start over, so I can agonize over every little nuance of the granite pattern and drive 150 miles to the granite supplier to pick out "my" slab. Because without

GRANITE COUNTERTOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES

I will never be able to be happy or enjoy my life.


Don't get me started.

Eranda,

You hit the nail on the head!!! That is the storyline of EVERY HH episode. And, that is why my pitiful house will never sell - I don't have

GRANITE COUNTER TOPS AND STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES!!

That's what I think every time I see them! I hate dark-colored counter-tops, and I love old-fashioned cottage-y looking kitchens with porcelain sinks. Right now I have a "work" apartment with stainless steel, and I hate how it feels when I clean it. I want my "home" porcelain sink back.

I actually sold two houses that had (gasp) laminate countertops and (sob) black appliances.

Oh, Eranda ...

And here I am, stuck with a W who likes off-white appliances - and we have a water heater under a counter, so granite countertops could cause a big problem....

Another thing that gets me about HH/HHI is the desire for beachfront housing. Doesn't anyone know what a hurricane can do?

I will admit we put in granite countertops and we also have stainless steel appliances. It's what my H likes.

However when we bought our house it was a short sale, and a total disaster! But we got a good deal. The previous owners had painted their laminate countertops to look like granite, but used latex paint, many different colors (they were going for a marbled affect) and never sealed the paint. So these stupid countertops were sticky as hell, just nasty. I spent weeks using paint remover and a scrapers to try and get all that paint off. And when I finally did, what was I left with? Laminate countertops covered in scratches. Oh, and did I mention that the countertops were Pepto Bismol pink?

So what did I do? I lived with it for four years until I could afford to replace them! These people on HH are took picky.

All the "reality" shows are contrived; there's nothing real about them at all except the set.

And they often do substandard rehabs, too. My house was on a makeover TV reality show before I bought it. I had to undo all their crappy renos!

I had to bump this up. There is a new one to add to the list. While the shows we have been discussing have slightly annoying moments, this one is horrid.
It's called "My House, Your Money". It's rude, entitled, vapid, spoiled, ridiculous, and obnoxious twenty somethings who have their parents buying them houses. That in itself is not a bad thing, I am sure if my kids were deserving and needed help I would help them. But this? They tour each house while saying things like "There is no place to party" or "How the hell am I going to get to the clubs from the suburbs? Are you going to pay for the cabs?"

This douchebag kid just told the agent he wasn't going to get out of the car to see a place and she better find him something "Younger and more trendy".

And the parents? OMG. Your kids act like that because apparently there is nothing they can do or say that is off limits. The girl yesterday had her friend along and the friend was yelling at her dad about renovations .

It's just stinking awful
