Stainless Steel Backsplash?
rpl814
November 6, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I'm redoing my kitchen. I'll have pure white shaker doors with glass upper doors (shaker with a glass middle), and silestone zirconium countertop- the dark one pictured. The island is black shaker doors with whitney cambria countertop. I've been looking at tile for a backsplash and haven't found anything I love. I'm thinking stainless steel subway tiles. If anyone has any thoughts on that or ideas, please let me know! My faucets are chrome, and my island lighting is clear glass with some chrome.

I think that would look great with the samples you have provided and with what you have described.

Best,
Matt

Thanks, Matt. I have looked and looked at tile - and glass whites are rarely actually white (always greenish) when they are mixed with darker tiles, and I don't like the look of all white subway tiles with such a dark, snazzy counter :). I should probably go with my gut.

Consider mirror...It will not be busy, is inexpensive, and easy to keep. It will also reflect light and what kitchen could not use more light? Here are some photos which I hope will give you some ideas. :)

I would simply look at urban archeology and artistic tile, both can be viewed on line at JAMIESHOP.COM and purchased at up to 40% off retail. If you have any questions they are there to help and can get you samples. http:// jamieshop.com

OMG Susan Jablon Mosaics- Those are amazing and I wish I never saw the ones you can design yourself because it gets too expensive!!! Ahhh! Is is possible to just switch out maybe one or two colors in a style that's already done, without the price going crazy?

rpl814, there is absolutely a way to stay on budget! Our bottleglass (catalog codes begin with "R") and Bijou (catalog codes begin with "J") lines are reasonably priced in comparison to some of the stainless steel tiles, which would help you balance a little bit. I'm not sure what size tile you are considering, but our 3/4 inch square tiles are also very reasonably priced, with some on clearance as we are moving out inventory. Mixing in these tiles should help to reduce the price a bit. You can click on any design and edit in the tile designer to suit your taste and budget. Also, we have designers available for free design consultation by phone (1-866-939-1033) who would love to help you find the perfect blend at the right price!
