After consulting with a couple designers and obtaining costs, I opted for new countertops and backsplash instead of the complete kitchen remodel. I believe the changes updated my kitchen and allowed me to save money for other projects. I also discovered that once you find a place for your countertops, they have installers and even suggested tile installers as well.
