I was glad to see this reply. I like light and airy homes. My home has
many windows in it. This allows me to have dark oak furniture in my
living room, and a lighter oak in my family room. My bedroom furniture
is cherry wood. I love nice woods. My kitchen and bathrooms all have
opal oak cabinets, and I actually love the look. I had it many years
ago, and it then faded out of style, so to speak. Twelve years ago,
when my home was built, it came back. Now, you don't
see it as much.
This gives me something more to think about. Maybe I should not worry
about updating my home, but live in it according to what I like.
Thank you for your input.
That's it! I find it very funny when people decorate their home for
"resale value" even when they are not planning to sell any time soon.
I've been in my home for 25 years and plan to be carried out of it
feet first. I make all my decorating and remodeling decisions based on
how I want to live in the house. And, since I have a nearly 200 year
old house, I couldn't care less about being "in style". I've worked
very hard to maintain and restore the house to its original greek
revival style, but with a modern kitchen and bathrooms.
OTOH, in these times one never knows when one will be forced to move.
Something out of the ordinary scores many more points against you than
in times like these than it does when it's a seller's market. While I
wouldn't put in anything I didn't like, there are things that I like
that I wouldn't spend a lot of money on, either.
