Express yourself with color. Because the backsplash is a relatively small area, it's your chance to play with color. It's always safe to choose warm, soft colors. However, you can be much more daring! This is your chance to add an exciting punch of color. Play with pattern. Patterns add interest - especially if you are on a tight budget. One easy way to save money is to select standard tiles in complementary or contrasting colors and then arrange them to create an interesting pattern. For instance, an unusual checkered pattern can make your kitchen feel like a quaint little bistro rather than a boring rental apartment.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
No Mess: With cabinet refacing you will still be able to have access to your kitchen during the refacing process, now, that's hard to beat! Your kitchen will not be littered with sawdust, debris, and whatever else a complete kitchen remodeling will leave you with. Once the refacing is complete in 2-4 days, your kitchen will be clean and ready to use.
These come in larger sections so you will have less seams. A stone kitchen backsplash is very durable but be careful of your stone selection for the kitchen. A deep texture stone will trap dust and grease. This will make it a nightmare to clean. Use a smooth texture stone for your kitchen, you will be glad you did. These are but a few options to create a beautiful kitchen counter backsplash and bring your kitchen to life. Don't forget that you can mix options together to create a look all your own.
Change: If you are tired of looking at the same cabinets again and again and you wish you would have more functional cabinets then you can always change the cabinets. If you are a small family or you are not a family yet then you would not bother about the kitchen cabinets much. But when the size of the family grows, you will need to use the kitchen more often. In that case, the kitchen needs to be much more functional and comfortable for sure.
