Extent of the renovation..

When you say renovation, are you taking out cupboads, ripping up tile and replacing appliances or are you looking more to update the look without doing any crazy big renovations?

taking out cuboards, counter tops and appliances! The works! but not the floor that remains there....

I am really refering to the tiles betweent the cupboards and counter tops. I am not sure what to do about those. Currently they are just white... and they might be ripped off as well.

The cupboards are going to be a medium brown, countertop a light grey.. and I'm not sure about the walls as well! It is a small kitchen. I don' t think it can handle that many dark colours.

Even the backsplash tiles?

Wowee! Big renos! The thing is, this is for your house right? In terms of appliances I am a firm believer in having either stainless steel or white. Black seems a little too dark for most places and the appliances that match the cupboards are not a look that I really like. (I would rather see where a fridge is in a kitchen rather than open every large cupboard door trying to find it.) Is the kitchen open to other rooms in the house or is it very stand alone and closed off. If it is open, what do the rooms around it look like? Earthy natural colors? Modern?

I live at home!

Well it is my parents house, and I live with them! The reason why I ask is because they also don't know what is trendy these days, and want some ideas. I would say that it is more natural colours and modern.

Warm and modern

Is the kitchen open to the rest of the house or can you decorate the kitchen kind of independently without having to consider the surrounding rooms?

It is definitely an independent room project!

That leaves you with so may possibilities. Is it up to you or do you guys have to vote on the final decor? Are you into stainless steel appliances or more classic white?

oh man, we're definitely doing the stainless steel. Can't do the white anymore. A kitchen trend right now is going for the silver anyway.

Although I still think avocado green fridges are so cool!

tee hee hee!

I used to worry about smudges from fingerprints with stainless steel but I definitely like the look and think that is the way to go. I wonder if in like 10 years the look will ever get dated though. I doubt it! It is not like it is green or mustard yellow from the 70s!
