Backsplash dilemma I never thought I'd have!
I thought I could pick easily and quickly. After all, we had a backsplash we loved in our old kitchen (but that one was traditional and this one is totally modern). The kitchen is very neutral color (glossy white upper cabinets, taupe-ish wood look laminate lower cabinets, fridge panels and "frame", white Ceasarstone countertops (not in yet). We only need about 20 sf (one wall) of tile. Why can't I just walk into a store and pick something?
The kitchen consists of a wall of cabinets and appliances about 11 ft long, and a 10'x3' island. It's part of a large living room, measuring about 40' x 22' in all. Kitchen and dining room share one half and living room is the other half.
Note that the dining chairs that you see in the picture will be going. We already gave away the table and sideboard, but needed to keep the chairs until we get new ones. Also, the Pottery Barn stools will either have to go or be refinished - the color of the stain doesn't work at all, but the stools are incredibly comfortable and we love them. We will have a sisal rug under the dining table (reclaimed wood with iron base). The main sectuinal and chair in the living room will be taupe leather.
