Who likes backsplash questions? Raise your hand.
I've got just about everything picked out for my kitchen redo and was figuring out the backsplash with my kitchen lady (KL). It will have white upper cabinets, gray lower and I'm using a matte finish Wilsonart laminate called Kiwi for the countertop. It's described as a "directional, wavy green pattern in a yellow-green." I'd decided on a field tile of matte, white 2 x 6, and was going to use it stacked. The accent was to be a 4-inch vertical strip of iridescent mosaic about every 12 inches.
The photo of the iridescent mosaic I picked looked perfect on the website, very colorful, but before finalizing it, I wanted to see the actual tile. I was flabbergasted when I saw it because it looked nothing like the photo. It wasn't just off a little, "due to the monitor"; if I hadn't known it was supposed to be the same tile, I couldn't have picked it out of a line-up. KL agreed when I showed it to her.
So, now I have narrowed it down to two other choices. Both look good with the countertop material and white tile, but they are different with a capital D. One is a transparent iridescent 5/8 tile mosaic that has a lot of pastel iridescence. The other is a mosaic of shades of iridescent green glass, thin in width and thickness.
I think both are equally as good as far as appearance and I'm having a devil of a time deciding. Anybody want to add their 2 cents?
