Need help with backsplash. Back painted glass questions
My ideal backsplash is a calcatta marble herringbone tile all around. But I am a bit of a messy cook and tomato sauces and oils end up splashing on my existing glass tile backsplash.
I love how easy it is to clean the glass and imagine it would be even easier without the grout lines. I was thinking about putting a back painted glass sheet just behind the stove in a pale blue/grey color. And I would do my beloved marble herringbone tile everywhere else (under cabinets, possibly behind the upper portion of the hood)
A few questions here:
1) does this sound like a good design idea? Or is it too much going on?
2) how would I transition from the glass to the tile? Is grout enough?
3) if the glass is tempered is it completely safe to put behind a stove? Are there any risks of cracking from the heat?
If it is not safe bc of the heat my other option was stainless steel instead of the glass. But it bothers me how it gets scratched over time. And I have the same questions 1 and 2 for the stainless.
This forum has been super helpful in helping me decide other design elements like white quartzite counters.
Thanks in advance for the input!
