backsplash feature over cooktop or not
I would like to get peoples advice on the kitchen backsplash. The kitchen and eating area is 20X20 it will have built in seating and a 3'3"X7' island with seating. The area with cabinets is 13'X14'. It has a cooktop along the wall and two stoves built into the cabinets. I was planning on a subway tile for the backslash and above the cooktop. The designer at the tile store thinks it should have a feature of different tiles framed above the cooktop.The subway tiles are 4X8 but come in many sizes.
We have finally decided to use the same tile in 4X4 on a diagonal above the cooktop that would go all the way up. I also see people use the subway tiles in the herringbone pattern above the cooktop. She is going to use some very pretty glass tiles as a divide between the subway and the 4X4 tiles. Can you please let me know what you advise. I don't have any of the samples right now to post a picture.
