After: Cheerful, Family-Friendly Kitchen
Extend subway tiles up to the ceiling for a bistro look.
Glossy white cabinetry provides a crisp backdrop for this totally transformed kitchen. A subway tile backsplash extends all the way to the ceiling, giving the space a bright, bistro feel, while the old painted linoleum floor was swapped out for marble floor tiles arranged in a herringbone pattern. (A Nuheat floor heating system was a luxe addition that makes winter mornings much easier to bear.)
