Need help with small, narrow kitchen

erynvFebruary 21, 2013
Hey everyone!

So we just moved into our first house and are looking to make some overall changes. First, we want to make some small changes to the kitchen. The granite countertops are nice, and the cabinet is very well-made, so we will keep those for awhile. I'd like to put in better flooring, maybe paint, and add some backsplash. I am going to post a few pictures... so if anyone has any ideas on what backsplash might look nice with the countertops/cabinets, that'd be fabulous!

Also -- the refrigerator has been replaced with stainless steel, and all other appliances will be as well.

Depending on if you are into traditional, contemporary, modern, etc will depend on what you could do. If you are looking for more "space" and lightening it up, you could try stringing lights uder the cabinets (you can find them at Lowes/Home Depot/ lighting supply store) and putting either "glass" or "tinware" as the backspash. Also change the hardware on the cabinets to brushed nickel to also bring in light.

I would try to stay light with the back splash. Something that will reflect the light. In a small kitchen it light is so important. I have use mirrored back splashes to add depth to small kitchens.

I definitely want to add light.. and really don't want an all beige kitchen. Anyone have any photos to share so I can get a better idea?
