I am thinking of doing some remodeling in my house. It occurred to me that about every decade or so a new "fad" comes into play,
|Hop Scotch For the Kids|
- 50's Black and White Checked Floors
- 60's Vinyl Floor Tiles
- 70's Shag Carpet, Paneling, and Popcorn
- 80's Wallpaper
- 90's Ceramic Tile
What will the new fad be? Who was the first person that decided to put granite on their counter-tops? Who will be the first person to start the new idea? What qualifications must this new idea have to in order to be considered?
Who will be the first person to come up with the new granite?
One of the very important things will be the cost. If it is too cheap then everyone can have it thus nullifying its importance. If it is too expensive, not enough people will be able to afford it and that will also nullify its importance. It has to be high end but not too high end. Just right. Maybe at the 70% marker.

It must also be appealing to the eye. This can sometimes be an issue because, as a whole, we don't like change. Therefore, it may have to have a "teaser affect" in order to get it started. Think of subtle wallpaper, for instance. Or it must be off the wall bold. Think of the black and white checked floors.
I saw some red and black ones the other day.
- The steel used to make cars?
- Silicon that circuits and transistors are made of in computers?
- What about stained glass like in church?
My last choice is stained glass. I think you can coat it with something so it will be tough. There are so many choices, too. You can go the religious route.
Or you could go with something a little bolder.
I am thinking that my project might have to wait. I just can't decide.
I guess I'll keep my Formica and shag.
