This last weekend, my mom came out for a visit and I was finally able to go shopping for my kitchen! I got the Ikea birch counter tops and a white apron front sink. They are resting in a corner waiting for John and I to have time to put them in.
Then my mom wanted to go tile shopping. Since I'm installing a new sink and new countertops, my mom thought I should look at backsplashes! But I think she really wanted to look at tile for her own kitchen...
I found the one above at a fancy tile shop. Around $24/sqft. Yikes!
I found this at Home Depot for $7/sqft:
There is a slight difference but not a $17 difference!
I also thought maybe white penny tiles would be cool:
These are from modwalls in marshmallow.
John wasn't a fan, but I like how it's both vintage and modern.
He wanted something with color. 'Cause you know what my kitchen is lacking? Color.
So, while looking for some color for the backsplash, I found this:
To get a good chevron pattern, I'd need a tile that was more than twice as long as it was wide. So like a 2" x 6". Try finding those in more than one color. (I did find them, for $40/sqft!)
But! Don't give up hope! I found these!
Individually, they look like this:
John thought they looked too "Grecian," but they also had yellow!
It may be too much color, but it's worth a shot. It would be so fresh and fun to have a sunny backsplash!
What do you think? Should I stick with white and add pattern? Or go with color?
John's been sick and refuses to talk tile, so I'd love any input you have!!
