About This Space

We recently bought a 1941 Colonial home that has a retro style checkerboard flooring in the kitchen. The kitchen needs some updating. I am thinking of putting in stainless steel appliances and a farmhouse stainless steel sink etc. I am looking for ideas. I was thinking of painting it a lime green. I was also thinking about getting rid of the checkerboard flooring (but it is growing on me). I was thinking of wood floors that match the hardwood floors in the remainder of the house. Please all ideas are welcome.
