The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials, whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget, splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
Whether you go for more contemporary or more country, remember that both as still in the kitchen. So consider staining the wood to protect it from eventual cooking wear and tear.
Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
Sometimes, the simplest approach is best. That can feel particularly true when it comes to reimagining your backsplash. If you’re satisfied with the material you’ve used in the past, just not the particular shade or aesthetic, a coat of paint is an easy and affordable way to give your kitchen an entirely new look.
While stainless steel is a good and classic metal option, two other metals are seeing a surge in kitchen countertop popularity.
