Need Help with Backsplash
Hi. I have been reading posts on here since May. While they have been EXTREMELY helpful, I still have some questions. I think I have FINALLLY decided on a backsplash to go with the uba tuba granite that was installed in April (definitely not my first choice. It was a compromise as DH wanted solid black -- with 5 kids between 3 and 13 -- so I compromised with the uba tuba). Anyway, I think I have decided to go with the Daltile Cream Soda 3x6 Glass Subway Tile (it's the one on the far right of the picture). Since I haven't purchsed it yet, I am still open for opinions/suggestions. The main purpose for this post is regarding where to end the backsplash. Like many, my counter extends past the cupboard line. I'm worried that having it go 1-2 inches past the cupboard will not look good, and even more concerned that if I stopped at the cupboard line, that I would never match the faux paint for the extra space from behind the old backsplash. So I was thinking about extending the tile all the way to the door trim and down to the floor (1x4 section far right of picture). My DH, however, thinks that will look TERRIBLE. I thought it might be good because that's where our trash can goes and that back wall has to get wiped often due to "trash basketball misses". Any advice? I'll post in a comment a picture of the entire kitchen as well as a picture of a "finished" cream soda that I found on the internet. Can't wait to get your comments.
