It seems like Alan and I have been thinking about our kitchen renovation for a while now. We’ve pretty much debated and decided on all the details, yup even the switch plates but we’re still negotiating the backsplash of choice. We each have our own strong opinions; I mean we both have good taste – we did pick each other as our happily ever after (I kid)! But a lot like marriage a kitchen renovation is forever. We’ve gone back and forth about three times backsplash ideas so I’m calling it the backsplash diaries. To give you some scoop, we’re restoring the original walnut cabinets to a modern splendor, replacing the pink tile with white quartz stone and installing terrazzo flooring. That brings us to the backsplash. I love the look of this diagonal tile pattern with brass grout, while Alan prefers more of a textured back splash a la Heath Ceramics. Somewhere along the way, we’ve even considered decorative and subway tiles, oh my! I think I’m right and we should go with something that has some character but still fits the era of the house. I love Heath Ceramics tiles, but I feel it’s a little to expected. What do you think? Which is your favorite? And for those of you who have survived a kitchen renovation, please spill your secrets!
