Dh and I are crap at this sort of thing! Firstly, can anyone advise on what colour would look best please - cream units with dark (almost black) granite worktop (as on offer!). Cream or dark tiles? Or terracotta? Gloss? House is a 1940s ex council.
Secondly, I love the look of real stone but how much of a faff is it to lay/prepare and maintain? Is it child/pet proof in terms of spillage and staining? Thanks in advance
Have a look on pinterest - I am in the middle of getting a new cream kitchen fitted with oak worktop and ummed and ahhed but getting ideas on pinterest really helped picture what it would be like. Went for charcoal slate tiles in the end which we are laying tonight... Good luck!
