Cabinets are an obviously important feature of a kitchen, but closed off cupboards aren't your only option. You can add a casual, modern feel to your kitchen by replacing your old cabinets with custom shelving. Open shelves not only make it easy to grab cups or plates, but the lack of doors add an open-air vibe to your kitchen as well.
A kitchen's inflexible nature contributes to the problem. It's not a space in which you can just rearrange the furniture at whim. Lined with built-in and bolted-to-the-wall boxes, fixed-in-place surfaces and large, immovable machinery, a kitchen can look static and lifeless in almost no time at all.
Other typical departure points are countertop areas around sinks and ranges or cooktops. Particularly if they're on opposite walls, you could choose to use laminate at the sink and ceramic tile around the stove. Butcherblock on the island would reduce the risks of uniformity and monotony even more by introducing a third material.
Backsplashes are also points of departure. No, they do not have to be made of the same material as the countertops. You can have laminate counters and ceramic tile backsplashes. Or, if you prefer a single material, change its form, using seamless slabs of granite for counters and granite tiles for backsplashes, large tiles for the counters, smaller mosaics for the backsplashes.
