I understand about the stainless appliances (I'm going with black, myself), but
stainless steel for the sink goes quite well with both white and the blue
granite, and, well, it's the sink. Having an item like a sink in stainless,
even if it's the only thing, still "fits" because it's expected. If you know
what I mean.
I wish we had available your choices. We are in the southeast, and live in
an area where 'do it yourself-ing' isn't very widespread. When we first
moved here from the Midwest, there was only one hardware store. Since we've
been here things have improved 100 %, but it's still hard to find places,
other than the large stores like Home Depot or Lowes, that will deal with
customers who aren't contractors. Of course for the counter tops we will go
with professional installation. But my husband and I enjoy doing things
like tileing ourselves. We had a contractor do one of our bathrooms, and
then did the master bath ourselves a few years later. We really love the
bathroom we did. The contractor's is just so/so. My husband wants to do it
over himself. Another thing we've found here is that although someone comes
out and gives you an estimate, many times the crew he sends out to do the
job appear to be day-laborers.
