Help quickly--backsplash question!
I have another question on my backsplash. I will be doing the accent tile below on behind the range. The rest of the backsplash will be Meredith Tile's Irongate line in white--4x4 on the diagonal. I am trying to decide if my tiles should be shiny or matte. Right now, matte is what I have planned (ordering tomorrow, I hope), but it kind of goes against my normal preferences. I decided on matte b/c the accent tiles (Jeffrey Court) are on a terra cotta (clay) type of tile and are definitely matte. So, the matte field tile seems like a good idea. What do you think? I also think that matte might them feel less "builder grade." The tile is definitely not builder grade, but because it is just white, it may look a bit plain. Shiny white tile seems very basic, but as I said, I normally like shiny. Any thoughts before I order? Cabinets are white inset. Granite is Costa Esmerelda.
