Kichen Before & After

We have finally finished, well, kind of finished our kitchen remodel.
The only thing left to do is choose a back splash, which is proving to be very difficult.
At our last home, after our kitchen remodel, I could never decide on a back splash so it was never done, maybe the new homeowners did something.
So for this house, I plan on not letting that happen again,
BUT
if only I could decide.
The last homeowners had their version of a backsplash,
A high gloss bright blue!
Kitchen cabinets that looked like came from a doctor's office.
Appliances that if they worked were falling apart like that lovely dishwasher.
Stove and microwave were done for.
The refrigerator worked fine but was so disgusting I had to use bleach water to clean it so we could use it during our home remodel.
At least they had a theme, they tried to match by going with a blue and white theme
but it all had to go, even the window, it was original to the house so was not cost effective.
Now the after:
Below you can see the imperfections on the walls so I need to cover that with a backsplash
We also had to add a light over the sink they didn't have anything there


 
Picture below, they only had the refrigerator on this side so we added more cabinets for storage and to balance out the space 
Pantry had bi-fold doors that when you opened them there was a cow them contact paper all over the place, not so pretty so we removed the doors and the awkward placed shelves and put in wire shelving and I sewed this curtain to hide my collection of food, I originally left it opened and after so many
"wow you must like pumpkin" or "it's amazing how you have every can facing just the right way in here"
OK, enough of that time to hide my food 
Found this print on Fabric.com
And my overhead lighting, sorry its a little dark but I saw this at Lowe's and had to have it
Now that the major stuff is done, I have to decide on the one thing that will finish it completely.
Will I do tile or wainscoting,
just not sure?!
