Flippers and developers use what’s worked successfully in the past. People who renovate their own homes love looking for new cool things. If you’re like me, using the same item twice is almost lazy. The only pieces I’ve used before in my latest renovation are a Bosch dishwasher (they’re just good) and a Grohe Ladylux kitchen faucet (For the record, no, I don’t feel like a lady – lux or otherwise – when I use it).
There are always new cool things to use and live with. Sometimes we renovators see new things that leave us scratching our heads. Sometimes those scratches turn to “Eureka!” and sometimes to “What the *#%*?”
