One area to the house that we made the most changes to was the kitchen. We rearranged appliances, changed cabinet layouts, expanded the island, and decided to do something drastic with the backsplash.
Once appliances are installed, we will have a chimney style vent hood over the cooktop. With this in mind, we decided that the backsplash should run all the way along the wall and up to the ceiling.
I was terrified over this decision. The backsplash tile was the last tile we selected. I was torn between two and Adam was pushing for his favorite. Once again, I acquiesced and I am glad I did!
Our backsplash is installed and I love it!
This was one of those make or break installations... I would either love it or I would hate it and have ruined our whole kitchen.
Boom! Love IT!
The creamy marbling of the tile brings in grays, white, cream, and I think it adds texture without being too busy. I can't wait to see it grouted.
Also, Adam insisted on under cabinet lighting... another win. The ambiance of these lights are amazing when the rest of the space is darker, and I love how it shows off the tile.
And - isn't our kitchen faucet so leggy and pretty! It's like a curvy pin-up perched atop the island.
We're getting closer every day!!
Backsplash is installed and exclamation points ensue! - day 216 of our build
