Rather than trying to cover up this aged brick (there are surely far, far worse problems in the world), this kitchen made it part of its decor. Whether you have beautiful brick like this or reclaimed wood or vintage tile, consider sticking with it before making big changes
If you’ve run out of wall and counter space, look up. Your ceiling is often untapped (and full of potential). Try a heavy-duty ceiling pot rack or try a DIY project like the owners of this small kitchen who created a hanging bar. Apartment Therapy writer Nancy Mitchell lives in a small studio in Manhattan with very limited counter space. She remedied that by bringing in a compact rolling cart which acts as an island.
Do not let the connotation of industrial turn you off. It can look totally elegant and clean (start with some fresh flowers on your island), and a stainless steel backsplash will take all those oil splatters like a pro.
