Please help me with my backsplash decision
I think I found the backsplash that I like, but I'd really, really love to hear from all of you what you think.
Counter: Colonial dream granite
Doors: pure white SW
The tile is called Meram Blanc from the Tile Shop. It's more white than gray in real life. I have pictures with the 2x4 tile, but I'm leaning towards the 3x6. I would use a matching pencil tile to trim the edges.
The other option is a white 3x6 subway tile.
I don't want the backsplash to really stand out. I want it to have some interest but not to be distracting. We have an open floor plan so the kitchen opens to the hearth room and the breakfast area. I want to keep it light and airy so no dark tiles.
If you have another option that you think would be right for the space, I'm open to suggestions!
So, I have a few questions:
What do you think of the backsplash? Will it go with the counters and cabinets?
Around the window: should I continue the backsplash as pictured below or consider doing a full wall around the window?
We have a small butler's pantry area that is set away from the kitchen that I was thinking of framing a listello [border piece] because I really like it, but don't want it anywhere else. The backsplash area is only 36x18in there. This is the listello I like but I would use the meram blanc tile to frame it not the one pictured.
Thanks for taking the time to help with my backsplash!
