Need help with my kitchen
jdeddison
January 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are replacing our whole kitchen and would like to incorporate an island bench not necessarily with a breakfast bar. The existing floor tiles run all through to living areas and wondered how I would incorporate new flooring in kitchen? Please help with any ideas.

To look best, I think whatever you do in the kitchen needs to be brought into the family room space.

Try to straighten out the angles if that is possible and I also agree with Darzy. I would prefer to see the same flooring used in both the kitchen and family room. The million dollar question is....do those tiles run under the existing cabinetry?

From the picture, you kitchen looks pretty good. I think I'd just remove the upper cabinets above the stove and float stainless steel shelves above. Or just new hardware and counter. Sometimes the picture either doesn't do it justice..one way or the other! ; )

J, I think your kitchen looks good already. Like Darzy said, maybe do something the hardware and that angle. I would change the countertop. I like Caesarstone myself. The front of the plain white side looks like it needs something...maybe some shelves or a column or some storage or bars tools.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. And no Annette the tiles don't run under the cupboards. I think I will have to lift all the tiles. We would like to replace with floor boards expensive though.

Your kitchen looks great but as previously stated a new counter top and maybe a fresh coat of paint in a different color on the walls could give your kitchen a new look without making any other drastic changes.

Yes, hardwood is expensive. I recently read this article on "linoleum". I think quality linoleum will make a comeback because it's easy to clean and perfect for pets and children and lasts a very long time. It's also budget friendly.

I think with dark cabinets the flooring would look good and would re-think removal. However, the pantry/refrigerator/microwave wall definately could be improved.
