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.
Light is the second key feature that can be used to make your kitchen appear much bigger. The more light and bright a room is the bigger we perceive it to be. A room full of shadows or dark corners appears smaller as the whole space is not illuminated. The walls or corners can appear shorter than they actually are. By allowing maximum natural light into a room with a big window you can make your kitchen appear far bigger. You ultimately want to do whatever you can to fill your kitchen with light. Any windows that you have should remain uncovered by curtains or blinds. If privacy is still required a net curtain or frosting could be of benefit.
You’ll also need to finalise your budget at this stage to make sure you’re not looking at options out of your price range. Remember that just because you can’t afford high-end design choices like marble work surfaces, it doesn’t mean you can’t get the look with a cheaper alternative, such as a quality laminate. The huge range of kitchens on the market means, if you are willing to shop around, you can get a kitchen you love at a price you can afford.
When it comes time to design your kitchen, look for points of departure, places where it seems natural to change materials.
