Backsplash!

Tile backsplash, you pervs! Not when you pull out and spunk a dude’s tramp stamp.

I may have finally chosen a viable tile backsplash for my kitchen. It is in the color scheme I had envisioned, with just a touch of flair. This is what it looks like:

It’s glass tile in a mixture of glossy black, frosted grey, and grey “fractured” glass.

It is meant to pick up the grey and black flecks in the reddish granite countertop. Also to pick up the black and stainless appliances.

Naturally, the shit is not inexpensive. It’s good that the backsplash acreage is limited.

Here it is against the granite:

And here is a longer shot showing it on the wall with the stove and countertop:

The reason I’m showing it vertically is two-fold. First, it is less expected and gives a bit of vertical to the tile “belt”.

Secondly, because of that curved pole (on the right in the last pic). If the tile is run vertically, it wraps around the pole nicely, thus not creating any visual discontinuity.

So… What do we think?

    I did my mom’s kitchen with similar tile, just different colors. It was $30 per sheet. I actually liked one at Homo Depot which was almost the same color but cost only $14 a sheet.

    Be sure to use the correct grout color. Try backing the sample with paper of the grout color to get a truer sense of the color.

    My mom liked the more expensive one which is what you see in my cooking posts.

  5. Won’t being stacked vertically like that require a lot more cutting?

    Looks very nice!

    The tile is pretty. The granite, however, is butt ass ugly.

  8. Mark in DE says:

    I think you can do better. The color of this backsplash doesn’t seem to relate enough to the granite color, at least from the photos.
