Kitchen Backsplash - Herringbone? Need Help!!!
Hi everyone! I have a bit of a backsplash dilemma. Long story short: our kitchen (ceiling, floors) is not level. Our new counters and cabinets are level BUT the two windows along this 16' run are not level, a mistake that wasn't noticed (or maybe just wasn't brought to our attention) until the day our cabinets were installed. At any rate, whats done is done and it's time to do a backsplash. I was planning on using honed Carrara subway in a 2x4 but realize at the unevenness of the horizontal lines will drive me crazy. If my tiler placed them in a herringbone pattern, would it help hide the fact that my kitchen isn't level? Do you have other ideas? I really want Carrara but have not purchased the material yet so I could change the size if you think 2x4 isn't my best option. Also considering whether i should have tile extend to the ceiling. Thanks in advance for your help. I feel like you've bailed me out of many near-catastrophes!
