Good Questions: What to Do With Our Kitchen?

Pin it button big

Hi Apartment Therapy,
I'm from the Blue Mountains in Australia, just near Sydney and I love your website!! My husband and I really like our 1970's kitchen. We recently retiled as the old ones were falling off. We tried to go with the retro look but I don't think our choice was very successful. I feel the mosaic stands out too much and doesn't really enhance the kitchen...

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the ATLA team or our readers can help you out.

My questions are:

  1. Should we paint the mosaic tiles or take them off and put something else on? I was thinking maybe painting them a greeny-grey but it might be too boring.
  2. We want to put some open shelving on the wall above the stove. I was thinking maybe two narrow shelves painted the same colour as the walls.


Thank you! Sarah
