Out of the ABB Club (close enough anyway!)

lisa_wiNovember 13, 2012

After visiting 7 tile stores, looking at Ann Sacks, Sonoma, Jeffrey Court, and many others I finally made a decision on a backsplash for my green and cream kitchen. The project is not quite complete. I still need to rent a wetsaw to finish up the row right under the cabs and below the window plus find the matching caulk, but it might be a couple more weeks and I didn't want to wait any longer to post my reveal!

And the winner is:

Random Quartzite from Lowe's at about $9 a square foot! The grout is Polyblend from Home Depot in Butter Cream. The stone is enhanced as well.

The quartzite ended up being the perfect thing to tie all my colors together and still give me the warm, slightly rustic touch I wanted and it was very budget friendly! I love that I didn't pay any shipping and I can return what I don't use.

Nice! Good colors and a little reminiscent of brick (in a warm and homey way), but more elegant.

I LOVE the backsplash and your grout choice that ties in so beautiful with the creamy cabinets. I am considering the Clique cabinets but need help in getting measurements for a quote. I love your kitchen and I know you will enjoy your kitchen for yours. I appreciate your posts in sharing updates and the kitchen reveal and where you bought the cabinets and backsplash.

That is really nice. Love the colors. Love the stone. Your backsplash is both rustic and refined. It was worth all the searching you did. You definitly nailed it.

that kind of slate feel to it really works with the black of the counters and hardware- good blending and love the texture.....I think yours was a tricky one to get right...fine job in the end.

That looks great together! Would have never thought to use slate with painted cabs but wow - very nice! Enjoy.

So beautiful! I love both the grout color and that little vertical detail next to the stove. Congratulations on a home run with this one!

It's absolutely stunning!
Honestly, I wasn't crazy about 2 tone kitchens until I saw yours. I would take it in a heartbeat. Well done!

Your tile voice was just perfect. You couldn't have done any better.
Can I ask you what sink you have. Is that a kohler whitehaven?
