Backsplash layout opinions please
I have pretty much decided on the following for my backsplash:
Rixi Mandoria 2.5"x5" (crackle tile, just off white, slight greenish blue cast)
Also picture frame/chair rail 2.5"x5"
And border 1.5"x10" in either rectangular or bead relief
Vista Glass Frost 2"x2" and 1"x1" for accents (serious cracked glass with slight greenish cast)
I was considering an accent strip at the top of the outlets with the 2"x2" frost, and then a picture frame type thing above my range.
My area above range is only 29" tall x 42" wide, so I am concernd I am trying to do too much in that small space, was thinking chair rail mold, double 1" frost tiles, 1.5" border, and then herringbone 2.5"x5" rixi in middle.
My marble is really the star, which is why I was staying tone on tone very neutral for the backsplash, but, I did want a bit of a focal point above my range.
Samples and layout sketches below, the grey/blue square is my range color.
So, should I skip the 2" accent stripe? Suggestions/opinions on my area above range?
