Matt, my son, finally had a break in his work schedule and was able to make the counter top. He delivered last week and helped us install and put the sink in. It is a light gray limestone pattern that blends wonderfully with our grays, white and caramel color palette. The kitchen looks great and we are extremely grateful for his help.
So what's next? The backsplash of course!
I purchased white and black 3"x6" subway tile a while back and left in box until last week. Unsure of how I wanted to use it I started playing with different patterns, colors and materials. Backsplash are often used to add drama, texture or pattern to a kitchen as well as making the walls easier to clean. We want to add a bit of all those to this tiny apartment. We'll pick a pattern in the next day or two and then I'll get this last piece done. Then we can start marketing and get this thing rented!
Here are some of the patterns I came up with:
|Offset (traditional) subway tile|
|A more modern pattern |
- stacked horizontally
|Modern pattern with |
random black tiles
