A few weeks ago, we talked about kitchen backslashes and where to end them. Check that post out here.
When we bought our house, we only had one option for a kitchen backsplash and I did not like it, so we opted to wait and do it ourselves.
After several options were narrowed down, we decided on classic marble subway tiles.
One problem that I see alot with builder homes is when the wall cabinets and the countertops do not line up. This happens because the cabinets are the same length, but they do not account for the overhang on the countertop.
After doing some research, I noticed that the opinions are about 50/50 on if you should line up the backsplash with the cabinet or the countertop. My advice is do which you like better and could live with longer. Here are some examples of how it can be done.
Because I was not sure which I liked better, I used a sheet of tracing paper and drew the tile pattern to scale. Then I was able to hang it up and see the pros and cons of each way. By using tracing paper, you can see outlets and other obstructions that you will have to deal with.
After looking at these for a few days I have decided which looks and works best for us.
Which way would you choose?
