vintagey uppers with brackets--and tile? close-up pix?
Anybody have good, close pictures of a setup like this--uppers with brackets coupled with a tiled backsplash?
My cab guy says that he's seen examples where the wall is tiled after the cabs and brackets are up, and the grout line against the wood bracket looks pretty ugly. So he's thinking that the backsplash should get tiled first, with the brackets ripped slightly in the rear to make room for the tile.
Anybody have real life experience with this--or just some good photos? All the ones I can find are too unclear.
I've thought about tiling just over the sink, but that wouldn't look right.
Sadly, while I love the brackets and they are a must-have, I think they eliminate this fabulous detail on the sink wall (though I can keep it above the range):
Can't have everything.
