Backsplash opinions please
The kitchen has been "done" for several years. Kept putting off getting the backsplash in place. Finally getting around to it now and I know why we put it off - we couldn't make a decision the first time around :) There are so many many choices...so difficult to decide.
I think we have it narrowed down to two choices and I'd like your opinions.
Cabinets: Cherry Mandarin finish (reddish)
Granite: Was called Red Verona by the installers.
Choice 1: Edilcuoghi Rocks Gold tile - 4x4 tiles set on the diagonal. Will use the Rocks mosaic behind the stove - possibly put 4 of these 4x4 tiles together in a diamond or a square shape along with a border. Would also use 1x1 tiles at random places in the backsplash (where two tiles meet). Rough, stone like look and feel.
Choice 2: Subway 3x6 tiles all over the backsplash. Use Mirage glass tiles for the area behind the stove. Again, work in a simple pattern with a border using the glass tiles. Very glossy, shiny feel.
I'll try to upload both pictures so you can chime in.
