Ok Backsplash Time
So we've pulled the trigger on our cabinets and counters (thanks again for all the help!) and are now debating backsplash ideas.
MCM house although not trying to keep it museum quality matchy matchy vintage authentic blah blah. Just want it to look rad.
Thinking white/grey marble for both - we've got a patient tile guy.
Cabinets are slab birch with a mid-range honey stain, counters will be dark (grey/black) soapstone with (some) white streaks.
We're torn between these two layouts. Obviously the "whole wall" idea is way more expensive and we'd probably have to cut the budget elsewhere to do it. These are 12x24 tiles.
On the other hand I really love the idea of doing a 2x12 stacked bond just up to the bottom shelf, too. This would be way cheaper and actually I think it reinforces the horizontal elements of the space. What are your thoughts? Any challenges I may be missing with either?
