Face Lift for me or the kitchen?

13 years ago

At my age I could really use one but have decided the kitchen will get it instead. Hi everyone! I'm new to the conversations here and have learned so much already.This will be a lower budget face lift.

I'm going to replace counter tops with granite, and replace backsplash and flooring. I need some help deciding on what color family I should go with to complement the oak cabinets which I am keeping. When I went to the granite yard I was totally overwhelmed and liked everything in site. I can't tell what would look good in my kitchen and what I just think is beautiful granite. SIL suggested I need to have a plan for the three elements, the floor, counter and back splash before I do anything. I'm not sure where to start and don't have a dream kitchen in mind since this one isn't it but it's staying.

The photo of the half wall would have a bar height counter on it.

Any help and guidance would be appreciated.
