I loved being a homeowner and I cannot wait to own again! I suppose renting has some advantages; when we had a mold issue maintenance came and replaced the drywall and painted--free of charge and we don't have to mow the lawn, but I am incredibly eager to move on.
My dream home is a fixer-uper. I love watching shows on HGTV and the DIY network. I enjoy wandering around Home Depot and Lowes as much as any mall or clothing store. It might sound silly, but I am really hoping that when we are in a position to buy again it won't make sense to buy a new or recently remodeled house.
I recently discovered the Lowe's virtual room designer tool--and I've been having fun with it! Of course, for whatever reason, it keeps crashing in Chrome, so I have to switch to Firefox.

I also want to have a fun back-splash. I want it to add something to the overall room. Maybe color, maybe texture, maybe depth, maybe something like these:
It is going to be so hard to decide when the time comes. Of course, I am sure Peter will (and does) have plenty of opinions as well!
We will undoubtedly have strict budgetary guidelines, but my husband (and his family) have a knack for finding amazing deals--so who knows, my dream kitchen could just become my reality.
