16 months

We finished our own kitchen remodel over a year ago. At the time I was indecisive about our backsplash tile, so we painted semi gloss for ease of cleaning until we could figure out what we wanted.

It’s getting to the point that we need to put something more durable than paint on our backsplash.  Since glass shards, wires & metal shavings are less than an ideal choice, here’s some ideas I’ve collected.

Option 1

I love the variation in tile size with this one. We have some strong colors already in our kitchen, so I was thinking about using white or clear glass with this pattern.

Option 2

The texture on this one grabs me. It’s a single color, but a complex pattern. And probably a gazillion dollars.

Option 3

Then there is the tried & true: white subway tile.

What think ye, O Wise Kitchen Design Comrades? I’m leaning toward the garden variety subway tile in a stacked not staggered pattern, but would love other thoughts & ideas.

** Caveat: paint colors can change but it’s a BIG job!
