Before deciding on a style or materials for a creative kitchen backsplash, you'll want to define the size—both physical and economic—of your project. Measuring the surface area of the walls above your kitchen countertops to determine the square footage you want to cover is a good place to start, but keep in mind that you don't always have to cover the entire kitchen wall with the backsplash (in fact, that design might be too overwhelming, especially if your intent is only to get creative and feature an eye-catching backsplash). When it comes to surface area, many homeowners choose to cover only the portion that will actually get "splashed" during cooking or daily kitchen activities—depending on your kitchen's layout, that may be the whole wall, half of it or only a small portion.

Ceramic tile doesn't need this extra step, but natural tile does if you want to maintain its appearance. "If the tile is stainless steel, find out if abrasives will scratch it, and I would suggest getting a grout additive and sealing the grout itself so it stays fresh and clean for longer," Van Deusen says.

A small kitchen can provide a number of unique design challenges in terms of decorating and optimizing spaces, but there are also several benefits of a smaller space, including efficiency of design and the lower cost involved in refurbishing less square footage.

This means that a compact cube microwave is a perfect choice when you don’t have a lot of room. If you don’t have any space on your counter, consider putting your microwave on top of your fridge or even on a separate cart in your kitchen.

The first is pricing, which tends to run approximately 20 percent higher than more conventional stoves, she estimates. But she has found that for most clients, especially in the mid- to upper-end kitchens, that incremental addition isn’t a deal-breaker. "Most clients are looking to upgrade their kitchens when they remodel, and they are looking for better performance rather than the cheapest price. I've never found induction cooktops to be a hard sell when they see what they provide."

Despite its small size, you can still fit about 10 place settings in each load. Buttons and controls are also hidden on the door, so the dishwasher will look super sleek in your space.

Very few people are really going to use an oven to complete capacity, Franke says, so those extra cubic feet might not be that important. Some ovens have racks that divide so you can cook a standing rib roast and then put in a half rack for your biscuits or sweet potatoes.

"The way a typical kitchen is set up, the refrigerator freezer is in the most accessible place," says Justin. "But with a combined unit, you're using the refrigerator 90 percent of the time and the freezer just 10 percent. If you purchase an all freezer, it doesn't need to go in the most accessible spot. It can go off to the corner somewhere."
