Maria Killam's BS Advice
I ran across this tonight, during one of those "How did looking for range hoods get me all the way over here?" googling episodes. I thought it worthy of discussion here.
She posted a little you-tube and blog post on the issue of "the best backsplash tile for your kitchen". In it, she states:
"The only time a patterned tile of any kind (above) looks good is with a solid colour countertop. Even then, keep in mind, most patterns are super trendy and will still be the first thing that dates your kitchen."
She has a strong bias towards white subway tiles and white kitchens, by the way, for those of you who don't know her.
Do you agree?
Is the BS the first thing to date a kitchen?
I think I generally agree that a solid tile works best with a patterned counter and the only way I would personally do a patterned tile would be with a solid looking counter, but does a solid BS really protect against a kitchen becoming dated as soon, or just tend to be more liveable to more people and for a longer period of time? Or, neither?
I'm posting this in hopes it might be helpful to folks to consider these issues, including me.
