Kitchen backsplash and lighting.

Bought existing home. Backslash has water damage. I think tile or glass same color would be good because directly across from sink is stove set in blue tile, but not sure. Do not want anymore blue. Was thinking about replacing lighting over sink and breakfast table. Would appreciate suggestions

for a quick and simple backsplash behind sink and hob have you considered stainless steel ?!
it would only need up be up to the window cill and length of sink in that area - and full width of hob alcove but only about 6 or 7 bricks high ?!

If you have tired of the blue, I'd suggest not coordinating to it. Replace the blue tiles under the stove top and repaint the backsplash or coordinate the backsplash to the new counter for the stove.

Coordinate the light over the sink to the light in dining room if they are open to one another.

The backspash is water damaged. I like the idea of changing light fixture. Originally I thought of a recessed lighting, but I thought it would be a challenge to install because of its location near the sloping edge of the house. Then I was't sure if I should get a fixture that hangs just below the curtain. I think it is really dated. Really like the suggestion of replacing it.

This is for OnePlan suggestion. Honestly, I had not considered a stainless steel backsplash. I like that it may be a simple solution. The damage on backspash is about one and a half feet wider than sink. How do you think that wouldt look?

I have the exact same kitchen--cabinets and all! When we remodeled on a tight budget, we purchased 18" Italian porcelain floor tile and had it installed on the diagonal. For the backsplash, we had leftover floor tiles cut to 1/4 scale also installed on the diagonal. To finish the exposed edges, we used a stainless steel tile transition piece on the right. The backsplash is in perfect harmony with the flooring and also the stainless appliances.

Please post your "after" pictures so I can get ideas for window treatments!

hi Bonita - I think the smallest you could get away with is the same length as the sink really ... or it just won't look right ?!?!
