we knew we wanted to do a tile backsplash in the kitchen but finding the perfect one was hard for us. initially, i wanted to do a glass tile backsplash (like this)
but was afraid it would look dated quickly. I love the look now, but will I in 3 years? I am definitely more willing to do things that are "trendy" when they can be easily changed out- like pillows or a shower curtain. Big investments like tile we've really taken our time in picking. Finally, we've decided so I thought I'd share! (though it will be more fun to show it INSTALLED in a few months!) It looks like we'll close on our new house in 8.5 short weeks!
so we're doing this mini white subway tile (a total STEAL from overstock.com at $65 for 10 12x12 sheets- i think we'll need 2 boxes making it a little over $130 for the tile. I haven't checked on the grout yet but I'm hoping that won't be too much either :)
We're doing light gray grout- like shown here. the idea of keeping white grout clean was really daunting so gray makes me happy :)
i LOVED all the choices from overstock- i wish nic loved this one as much as I did, but someone else should buy it :) I'm pretty obsessed with that lantern pattern- i'll find a place to use it somewhere I'm sure!
