We're planning on making some updates to the kitchen before we move in. The floors and the cabinets are in good shape, but we want to change the backsplash and counter before we move in. Here is the current kitchen:
Yup, that's right, the cabinets were installed crooked, as was the backsplash beneath. The counter was installed poorly as well. We're also planning on adding another bottom cabinet next to the dishwasher and upper cabinets above that for extra storage and counter space.
Existing hardware and cabinets:
We love Eco countertops from Consentino. They're gorgeous countertops made with 75% post-consumer material, and has a cradle to cradle certification. We're pretty sure we're going with that, but not sure which color. I like the darker, Matt likes lighter.
We'd like to go with a backsplash that adds a little bit of color to the space. I love the look of glass, so that's probably what we're going to go with:
I'm not sure if I want a small table or a kitchen cart. At this point I'm leaning towards a table, because I think we'll have enough storage and counter space once we extend the cabinets, but we're going to play it by ear.
Obviously these are just ideas at this point, and we need to see samples in the house. We're planning to do everything ourselves except installing the counters.
