Unless you designed your kitchen from scratch, with a custom layout and cabinets, it's probably not perfect for your needs. But new cabinets can quickly eat up a small remodeling budget, and re-designing the kitchen isn't usually an option if you rent.
Kitchen-love the white matte subway tile with the dark butcher block. Like I said -you take cheap butcher block and stain it dark for a rich and elegant look. Maybe add dark grout to the tile and colored cabinets?
