Thanks for all your opinions and help on subway tile last week!
If you follow us on Instagram, you will have seen a little flurry of progress.
We weighted all our options, and decided to stick with our gut instinct and do a brick (or running bond) layout. I think what swayed our decision the most was that we would only have 18″ of tile total, and three inches of that would be covered by our under counter lighting molding. So 15″ wasn’t a lot of room to do a busy patterned backslash.
As for grout, we also decided to stick to a pretty traditional choice an go with gray. We picked out “Delorean Gray” and got it home only to look at it under our (bright!) under counter lighting, and decide it was too light.
Back to the store I went, and came back with Pewter gray. After mixing up a batch we both sighed with relief at how much we liked the color.
It looked good in the bucket, but how about on the walls?
We are still working away on the backsplash. The main part of the kitchen is tiled and grouted, but the coffee bar is still naked. Hopefully we can make some more progress on it this weekend!
What are you working on this weekend? Any tiling projects planned?
