Backsplash help...

Posted by geomeg (My Page) on

Hi everyone,

I'm considering this backsplash for my kitchen. My cabinets are up but not the counter which will be White macaubas.

This is a picture of the color of the cabs, a piece of the counter and a Walker Zanger tile from the Tuileries line in the colour loire.
It is not the right shape, I will probably choose the 2 by 7 brick instead.

What do you think?

Here is another pic. Of course I will wait until my counter is in before deciding.

I like the crackly finish. It is reading blue on my monitor is that what you are going for? I personally think that would look nice but I am by no means an expert.

really like it

love it!

I wanted some type of blue-green colour. It looks great with the cabinet colour, I'm crossing my fingers it will look good with the counter.

The white macaubas from the granite yard has some blue in it...

RE: Backsplash help...

I've seen the Loire samples before and I think the color will really help pull out the colors in your slab. I really love the whole Tuilleries line.

RE: Backsplash help...

Gooster I'm glad to hear that. I really love the sample.
I'm getting a sample in the brick 2 by 7 as well, which is the size I'm thinking of doing.

RE: Backsplash help...

Oooh love those colors especially if the tile really is as greenish as it looks in the first pic...which looks completely different in the 2nd! Love the crackle and brick shape too.
Can you please tell me what color the cabs are and what door style you used? Oh please, how 'bout a "sneek peak"? You're playing with some of my favorites and I'd love to see more! Thanks.

Island- I don't know the color of the cabs, it was one of the samples the contractor had. The cabs are a shaker with a bevel inside. The color of the tile reads greenish blue.

My kitchen is really tiny, I have a thread about scratches during install where there are some pics. Im on my phone right now so can't post more pics.

Beautiful!

RE: Backsplash help...

Thanks geomed. I too have a small kitchen. Go back and forth about expanding, but it's so efficient. Just want a a little style and maybe that can be had in a small package. Looking forward to seeing yours. When you get time would appreciate it if you could post the link to your other thread so I can see your pics. I'm also looking at Shaker-ish cabs. Thanks.

RE: Backsplash help...

Island here is the thread, there is one pic of the cabs up. We don't have counters yet and there's still stuff they haven't finished. The kitchen really is small especially compared to the kitchens here on GW, lol.

RE: Backsplash help...

Would I regret picking a color like this for backsplash? Would picking a cream color be better long term?
I'm so torn, because I really love the blue but I usually go with "safe" choices.

RE: Backsplash help...

Hi Geomeg. What did you choose for your backsplash? I am considering the Loire with Frosty Carrina and I had my white cabs installed this week? The Loire looks so nice.


 o
RE: Backsplash help...

I did end up choosing the Loire. It's a really pretty tile.
I think it would look great with your counter choice.
My counter is on the greyer side and I think the tile would look even better with a lighter counter.

I'll try and post a pic.

RE: Backsplash help...

Is your kitchen finished? Yes, pictures please!

RE: Backsplash help...

We're still waiting!!! :)

RE: Backsplash help...

"Unfortunately"? NOT. Your kitchen is beautiful and I'd love to see more. Please!
I'm sure there are many on GW who don't have enormous kitchens, me included, and these are the kitchens I find most inspirational because you prove function and style does come in small packages. I love your colors, choice of materials and how well they blend and that backsplash is just gorgeous.
Please post a final reveal with more pictures for a better view of the layout and of course all the product details. Love it, want it!

BTW, did you end up going with the 2"x 7" tile? Great choice whatever it is.

The blue backsplash is beautiful...it's such a serene color. It would be great to see the rest of the kitchen. Enjoy your new space!

RE: Backsplash help...

I love it! If I were starting with a new kitchen, I would do white cabinets and a blue backsplash.


 o
RE: Backsplash help...

I love what you did with your BS! Out of the ABB club and walls haven't even been painted yet! Can't wait to see your final reveal.
Did I say your BS is gorgeous :-)

Maybe not huge, but certainly fabulous. I remember your early posts about layout. It turned out just wonderful. BS is perfect.

RE: Backsplash help...

If at first you don't succeed - try, try again. I couldn't post earlier.
Your backsplash and kitchen are stunning. I love your choice of the blue with your kitchen!!!


 o
RE: Backsplash help...

Thanks everyone! I like the backsplash too.
There's not much more to my tiny kitchen, there are 3 doors and a large window so not much space for cabinets.

On the wall facing the range is my fridge which is still in our living room waiting for the painting to be finished before we install .

I'll post some more pics when we finish painting.
