A Simple Kitchen Renovation

Material Giallo Fantasia
Area 52 ft²

It's probably a fair statement to say that most people want to give their kitchen a full blown makeover. Of course, completely overhauling every detail of any kitchen's design is a huge investment of time and money. While a total makeover isn't a practical option for the vast majority of people, we think there's still something that many people can do to refresh the look of their kitchen. Today's showcase is a perfect example of the smallest changes you can make to your kitchen which have the biggest impact on its style!

We think that, for your money, the most effective change you can make to your kitchen is getting granite countertops and a stone tile backsplash!

Both the stone countertops and tile backsplash look right at home among warm colors of the kitchen. If we look back at the kitchen before it was renovated, though, it's hard to believe it's the same room! The decorations and surrounding furnishings all remained the same, but the plain white countertops were doing the space no favors.

Thanks to the cabinets and the decorations, a warm color palette was already welcome to the kitchen's design. So, when the owners were choosing materials for their countertops and backsplash, it made sense to use the earthy tones and textures of the Giallo Fantasia and stone tile. Instead of making a departure from what was already present, the new materials actually seem to complete the kitchen. That is, it's almost as if they belonged there right from the start!

So why does adding granite countertops and a tile backsplash seem to have such a tremendous impact on a kitchen's look? We think the biggest reason is color.

The counterspace of a kitchen is a major focal point of any kitchen's design. We spend the most time using and decorating this space because it's easy to reach, which means that we'll ultimately spend a lot of time looking at it. If the counterspace's colors are ill suited to the surrounding elements, the entire kitchen might seem ugly. So, by the same token, updating the countertops and adding a backsplash can tie an entire kitchen together.

So if you're wanting to renovate your kitchen, we hope you'll consider today's Showcase as a pattern to follow. Few simple changes can have a big impact on the beauty of your kitchen.
