kitchen reveal almost completed not staged kitchen-need tile help
A year and a half after moving in, my small kitchen is almost done. This is a picture of what it looked like when I moved in:
Some of you may remeber it from me posting questions here. All of your help was invaluable (both direct and indirect), so THANK YOU!!
My objectives for the kitchen were:
- to make it feel consistent with the rest of the house (1928 small colonial)
-source as much as possible from the USA (preferably local)
-make it feel like a happy place to be
I stil need to add a backsplash. It's going to be Arctic White Matte Daltile (Made in NJ, USA) Subway Tiles. If you could please weigh in on what you would do on the wall of the stove, I'd appreciate it. The wall near the door is going to go up approx 5 ft. On the wall with the Stove, I'm tying to decide if I should go to the ceiling, to the first shelf and then the second shelf right above the range, or any other option I haven't considered.
I accomplished as much as I could with the budget that I had, and regret none of my color or sink choices. :) I'd highly recommend everything I used, bar the stove (oven's a little more shallow than I'd like, but otherwise it's great). Hope you like it!!

BEFORE PICTURES (I'd like to say, I was really sad when this kitchen got taken out....it had served so long)
I painted alot of samples before I decided on Cabinet Color....originally it was white with Yellow walls
The floor was actually super easy to maintain, and if the wood underneath didn't work out, I would have chosen another linoleum
AFTER PHOTOS I haven't been able to get the blue to photo true so here's the site address for the color:
The kitchen to have one flourescent light. I wanted to make sure it stayed bright.
This is the wall that I need to know what to do with the subway tiles:
