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?
