What Houzz contributors are saying:
Go crazy with color. Forget trends, forget resale and go as crazy with these colors as your heart desires. I imagine this homeowner whipping up lots of fun confections in this bright kitchen.
3. Basic appliances. No built-in appliances, warming drawers, wine coolers, microwave drawers and so on.4. Ceramic tile backsplash and vinyl flooring. Whether it’s the backsplash, flooring or other surfaces, using basic and inexpensive materials will help you keep costs down. Simple and straightforward white ceramic tile works well for the backsplash, and a vinyl tile floor can make a real design statement.If you don’t like it or don’t have the budget for ceramic tile, try using a simple laminate 4-inch tall backsplash and paint the rest. Just use a durable, easy-to-clean paint. And for the floor, try sheet goods such as linoleum.
