Help me update my kitchen please!!

11 years ago

Hi! I am new here, and would really love some advice.
We have lived in this house for 6 months now. We made the big big mistake of making a few updates to the kitchen before moving in and having a solid plan. We put in granite and a back splash. We picked the granite based on the current builder grade cabinets that are maple stained cherry. While I do still like the he granite, I should have had a better overall plan for updating the kitchen. Now that we have lived int he house for a little while, I am struggling with how dated the new counter tops have made the floor and cabinets look. While it doesn't look like it in these pictures they are both very worn and faded.
While I do not have the money to update the entire kitchen now, I need some ideas to phase a plan in the future, please help!! At this point the granite will stay as is, what else could I do to update the dark and heavy look of this kitchen??

I hope I do these pictures right, if not I will try to fix them.



I love the look of this kitchen, could this be achieved?
