The idea of a couch like area in the kitchen has appealed to me for so many years. A kitchen is such a wonderful collective point in a house so why not make it comfy while your friends are around or whilst your cookies are burning?
line your cabinet under the kitchen sink with peel and stick tile. Easy to wipe and helps cover already damaged cabinet bottom or helps to protect a new cabinet. I'm going to do this...one of my summer projects. :)
Great kitchen makeover...can't believe this is the same room! New lighting, paint cabinets and add hardware, new wall color, new back splash, paint island cabinet black, change out white appliances for stainless, add trim on ceiling where box light used to be. This is much less expensive than a complete gut and redo.
