    the Kitchen is. Dark colors make a small room look even smaller. Cna you post a photo or two?

      I have before and after pics but they were taken several years ago on a film camera that I haven't developed yet.  There is a HUGE difference with the painted cabinets.  The floor is light ceramic tile that I need to either 1.) steam the grout or replace with another tile.  The tile extends into the hallway and takes up a good amount of space.  The other rooms on the first floor are hardwood I had installed several years ago.  (Red oak stained with a mix of pecan and cherry)  Pergo in the tiled areas wouldn't match the other wood but putting hardwood throughout the first floor seems impractical in high traffic areas and the kitchen. So, I'll probably tile or go with a slate in a  nice random pattern.
