My living room furniture is so comfortable that my sofa should be illegal, yet my guests always end up hanging out in the kitchen. Why is that? Like most homes throughout America, my kitchen is the Heart of my home. Design Connection, Inc. is here to help you move your guests off of your sofa and into the kitchen; the heart of your home.

A few weeks ago, we shared some great tips on finding the perfect kitchen countertops. Granite is a classic choice which will never go out of style, Quartz is gaining in popularity with an endless list of positive attributes and Recycled Glass is artistic, Eco-friendly undeniably gorgeous. But the countertops are just the beginning of designing the kitchen of your dreams!

This week Design Connection, Inc. is sharing beautiful and creative ideas for designing the backbone of your kitchen. The Backsplash.

Who doesn’t want a kitchen that is easier to keep clean? Using a solid surface in place of grouted tile is one way to do just that. Continuing granite from the countertops up to the cabinets creates the perfect balance between stainless steel, wood and granite in this gorgeous Kansas City Design Connection, Inc. kitchen.
