See How a Coat of Paint and Some New Tiles Have Transformed This Kitchen
‘When we moved here, we painted throughout, but then decided to wait before making any big changes,’ say the owners, who bought the house back in 2007. Eight years later, when they were expecting their third daughter, they needed more space, so they decided to add an extra bedroom. It made sense to look at how they used the whole house and reconfigure some other elements of it at the same time.
As the kitchen is at the back of the house, the owners decided to put bifold doors across the end wall to open it up to the garden. There was a little-used patio to the side of the kitchen, so they built a snug in its place with an extra bedroom on top. And to create some unity and flow to the space, they chose ceramic tiles that look like wood and laid a new floor throughout the downstairs.
There was a good layout in the kitchen, but the doors and wall tiles looked too country. The solution was to change the cabinets to a colour that would complement the flooring. The owners found a company, ProSpray London, which, after a site survey, sprayed the carcasses in the room, while the doors were taken away and sprayed off-site. It was a surprisingly quick and easy process. Read more here

A High-Impact (But Removable!) DIY Tile Backsplash to Give Your Kitchen a Facelift
Josef Albers—an influential mid-century artist, educator, and author of the color theory tome Interactions of Color—is something of a household name in design savvy spheres. It’s another Albers, though, that’s captured my affection. Josef’s wife Anni Albers reluctantly turned her creative eye to textiles when the Bauhaus school barred her from enrolling in a glass blowing class. Women were meant to weave, Weimer’s (male) leadership believed in 1922. So, weave Anni did, becoming one of the most celebrated textile artists of the 20th century. Fast forward to earlier this year, when I visited Fajalauza Ceramics on the outskirts of Granada, Spain. Founded in 1640, the tile shop has been family-owned for over 375 years. Browsing the stacks of ceramics on their floor (and mulling over the mess of tomato flecks on the drywall behind my Brooklyn rental apartments’ cooktop), I spotted a stack of navy and white diagonal tiles, haphazardly organized and teetering. Anni Albers’ iconic éclat weave instantly sprung to mind. Read more here ☺
