Templates...DONE!

Subway tile backsplash

I LOVE this kitchen. Notice the square tile backsplash...


A guy came by today to create templates for our countertops. It was actually kind of cool. He traced out the design on sheets of cardboard and cut it all out. He left with our countertops in cardboard! Hopefully this will really get the ball rolling. Now we just have to schedule the plumbing side of things and the install. I am SO ready to get these in!


I've been doing a lot of Google Image searching to find the type of backsplash I want to do. I'm thinking either square tiles turned on their sides (diamond look) or a subway tile look. I'm hoping my mom will be able to send me in the right direction with it. My biggest concern is not making the kitchen look too busy--our granite is very "speckly" (if that's a word), so I want to be careful about the backsplash.


I've attached a couple of pictures of my favorite kitchen backsplashes (above). Feel free to comment and let me know what you think! I need all of the help I can get!


P.S.--Andy made it safely to Texas! We miss him already. In case you read this, Andy, we love you!!!
