Backsplash Solution Please!!
We recently relocated our over-the-range microwave and had a cabinet range hood built.
The 3x6 tumbled backsplash tile samples just arrived and they are much whiter than the existing tiles, as you can see from the photo.
The stone place where the backsplash was purchased years ago is now closed and these sample tiles we have are the same name - Tumbled Pearl - but I know natural stone can vary a lot. It's also possible that the grout, which I found there is some on the tile fronts, may have yellowed over the years and it's possible I could polish them and it would make them whiter.
We could do an accent over the range but I definitely want a clean look and not another color, especially since the space is only 30" wide.
I like herringbone tile, what if we found it in the a similar color and placed it in the space over the range? We could buy the 3x6's (that I have samples of) and do a herringbone pattern in that space.
Please give me your ideas!
