Townhouse Kitchen - My First Design Project

When I moved into my townhouse eight years ago, I had a builder's kitchen.  Although the cabinets were mid-range maple cabinets they came along with green laminate countertops.  I knew I wanted to update the kitchen but I didn't want it to be a trendy kitchen that would be dated as soon as the trends faded away.

I replaced the countertops, sink, faucet and added a backsplash.  Since it was the first time I was engaging in a major design decision, I was scared that I might pick the wrong materials.  It's not like you can return installed granite back to the store for an even exchange. :)  Now six years later, I think the kitchen still looks relevant and hopefully will continue to be for years to come. And I still love my faucet!
