A trip to Tuscany inspired these homeowners to give their kitchen a much-needed update. Because the space is small, they chose white cabinets with clean lines and relatively subdued granite countertops and tile floor. The simplicity of these elements allowed them to make bold choices on the walls and the tile backsplash. They chose Maple Expresso for the new island, with a granite overhang for seating. These globe-trotters say they feel like they brought a little bit of Italy back home.
