You’ll also need to consider your glazing choices carefully, as this can make or break a design – do you want bi-fold or sliding doors? Would rooflights help bring natural light into the depths of the room? Now is the time to make these major decisions.
For example, an island can be a departure point for cabinet style, finish or color. Its cabinets can be the same style as a kitchen's perimeter cabinets but in a different finish or color. Or they can be the same color and finish as the perimeter cabinets, but with a slightly different door style.
The fact is, a kitchen will stay livelier longer if you start with an expanded menu of materials that maximize visual interest and tactile stimulation from the beginning. It's not a particularly difficult strategy, but you have to approach the task with intention and resolve.
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.
