Q: We just bought a house in a great up and coming neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Luckily, the kitchen is equipped with stainless appliances, ceramic flooring, and (not my favorite but..) black granite counter tops. Before we make the big move, I'd like to make this kitchen feel warmer and more inviting and personal. I typically like more saturated color as opposed to the pistachio that's happening in there right now. The cabinets are brand new and we don't have money to replace them yet, so I'd love ideas to work with them the way they are for now.
The kitchen opens onto a patio in the backyard and is in the back of the house after the brick red (a color I love) dining room.
What are some colors, tips, and ideas, to take this kinda boring kitchen up a notch?
