Kitchen cabinets are a high impact design element because they’re outward facing (unlike flat countertops) and take up a lot of real estate in the room. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association cabinets make up one-third to one-half of kitchen remodel budgets. NKBA also reported that among painted cabinets white is the most popular option. Add a personal touch by choosing cabinet pulls and other hardware that you like. They are easily replaceable and will pop against crisp white cabinetry.
Mosaics and Focal Points The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
Zinc Countertops If you’re looking for a countertop that develops a rich blue-toned patina zinc is a good option. Zinc reacts over time with water oils and citrus. The reactions are what create the beautiful rich patina that is the metal’s signature. Zinc countertops are best left in their natural matte-finish state.
Ceramic Tile Given the numerous shapes sizes and colors available ceramic tile is probably the most versatile option (it’s also proven to be timeless). There’s plenty of room to play with patterns while still maintaining clean lines: stack tiles in columns stagger them or lay them at an angle. Most tile requires minimal maintenance just be sure to seal the grout so it doesn’t get stained or absorb water.
