Progress! We picked a tile and the vent hood is up
My camera pooped out on me before I could take a picture of the hood, so I'll post it later. Still have to have the cabinet guy put in the front of it anyway.
But here is the tile we picked. I was playing around with it today to see which direction looked best. The flash was on in the middle picture and it shows lighter and redder than it really is, but it also shows the color movement in the tile which I think will hide dirt.
It seems that so many people put wood floors in their kitchen and we considered that but were afraid of the wate issues, and we briefly considered a stained concrete floor but there is just too much damage from the previous tile. We didn't want a light tile and none of the medium colors looked good. We kept going back to wood or stained concrete and I think this look remarkably similar to stained concrete. It's a really good match with both the cabinets and adjacent wood floor.
