Backsplash Preview Ann Sacks Lucian in Slate

lucas_tx_gwSeptember 22, 2013

2x12 glass subways
Grout is Fusion Pro Linen

Always hard to get color right in the photos but this is the closest. I think the grout has more tan color than this, need to grab some during daylight.

We're 99.99% finished now but really busy at work so will do a full reveal when I get more time.

Very nice color. Looks great with your granite. What are the dimensions of the tile? I'm not overly fond of regular subway tile, but this looks longer and not a thin as pencil tile.

Gorgeous!!! I especially love 2 x 12 subway. The tile enhances the granite. What kind of granite is it--it is beautiful. Can't wait to see more photos!

The granite is Golden Cascade. It actually has really nice grey veins, as well as the rust color, they just aren't as evident in that one small slice.

There is another thread with some pictures of it going in if anyone is interested.

I'll try to get myself together and post more later.

Thanks for the kind words.

Also, I wanted this tile because I wanted a very linear look and was looking for a long, narrow subway. I got very lucky that this was one of what Ann Sacks calls their "basic" line, instead of $150/ft it's only around $15. So don't be afraid of the price if you like.

This might be a silly question, but is this gloss or matte?

Ooh, I really like how it picks out the color in the granite but isn't a safe choice like tan or beige.

Beautiful!

lucas_tx, I'm loving your sneak peek! From this little sample, it seems like you really captured a complementary color--interesting but not competing with your granite. Fabulous!

And, that is so great to know about the Ann Sacks "budget" options! I never would have thought it, but after I saw your post I checked it out and they actually have a not-tiny "AS Basics" collection. Now if I can just keep myself from straying over to the $$$ options...

Here is a link that might be useful: Ann Sacks

Wow, that looks great.

Those AS basics are amazingly nice for the price, aren't they?

Thanks all.

We're pleased. We did things one step at time which might not work for everyone but it worked well for us.

Full reveal soon, I promise.
