Backsplash already out of date before installed or timeless
We are down to one of the last decisions, and have some time, but not much. Doing kitchen remodel in an historic Colonial Revival home, in an historic district. Home is white, inside color scheme is blue and white, with some soft browns like the wood floors throughout. Remodel kitchen will blow out 2 walls and make kitchen open to DR. Getting white MS cabinets, honed Carrara counters. No uppers. U shape with wall cabs on side. Stainless appliances. Sounds like a million other remodels, doesn't it. DW is concerned that the 3x6 white gloss subway tiles for a backsplash around the U is already boring and out of date. We love it, but is she right? Read a great thread or three about if subway tile is "timeless" or already screaming remodel in 20XX. She is thinking about other options including sheet glass ( which I can't find any good pics of) but I think that will be too plain looking, not enough pattern for the eye. Want to think of options. Ideas, stay predictable?
