Ugly updates to sell a home

2 months ago

We've been house-hunting. We have rejected so many homes because the homeowners have updated their flooring with very taste-specific or trendy wood-look floor, thinking it will sell their home. I do not want a weathered gray floor. I am not at the beach. I do not want hardwood that makes the floor look striped. My furniture has enough pattern and it will only compete.

Also, coordinating countertop and backsplash is not a skill that most people have, so please don't attempt it in an effort to update your kitchen.
