Time to pick tile for the kitchen backsplash and the bathtub!
Between the Tile Shop and Hobo, we looked at a lot of different options.
There are a lot of things to consider: shapes and sizes …
… and color.
We wanted white backsplash to go along with our white countertops and white cabinets. We looked at a few options but ultimately liked the clean look of subway tile. I didn’t want anything too trendy.
I like the look of medium rectangles – nothing too small, nothing too big. I prefer the rectangle look versus squares. I like the look of the brick pattern.
In our Cincinnati house, we had tan subway tile with a border of smaller green accent tiles about a quarter of the way down from the top.
This time, we wanted to go with white subway tile. I usually decorate in pretty neutral colors with some pops of color for accents. I wanted to use green accents again to add a pop of color.
In Cincinnati, we used just two rows of green tiles; we went with four rows this time to make a bigger statement. Which do you like better?
Here’s the finished tile work. We turned the edge tiles sideways to give the tub a more finished look.
It was fun to see the bathroom and kitchen coming together!
