The other day I went out previewing some houses with my real estate broker extraordinaire mother-in-law here in Greenwich. We saw homes within the $1.5 million range (ouch, right?) which could get you a new construction home with approximately 2,500-3,000 square feet.
I couldn't help notice that many of the houses, all built by different builders, had very similar kitchens. Key elements were repeated - white cabinets with glass doors, honed carrera marble countertops, kitchen islands in a natural wood finish, and white subway tile backsplashes. In fact, the same light fixtures pictured here were in three different homes.
So, I'm wondering...is this kitchen the "kitchen of the moment" in other parts of the country or is it just a CT thing? While I love all of these elements (well, maybe not those light fixtures in particular), I wonder if this look is fleating? I'm starting to second guess my decision to use subway tiles on my backsplash after seeing them everywhere. I know they are "timeless" and have been used for ages, but they may just be too popular for me.
