Post Pics of Your Kitchen (Specifically Yo Backsplash)

We are redoing our kitchen (if anyone is interested in pics) and just finished the bottom cabinet run. We have to pick out a counter yet and I am thinking of doing a tile backslpash.

I need some ideas on how I want it to look though. Do you get a 4" backsplash on your counter and then go from there or do you just get the counter and tile all the way up from it..

Anywho.. If anyone could post pictures of what they got so I can get some ideas that would be awesome!

Thanks!!

My backsplash is the same material as the kitchen counter. The kitchen is not tiled and will likely never be as I'm more likely to tile the bathrooms before I move out.

The backsplash is called 'green mica' but its a gold/greenish quartz tile. The countertop is granite.

Nice ferris.

We moved into a house that had recently redone theirs so we won't be doing anything to it for a while. We have the counter material on the wall.

believe it or not the floor is 'porcelain' tile. Same texture but supposedly better than ceramic. Its a small condo so I dont have a huge kitchen to work with.

We did our kitchen in a lighter granite countertop (kashmir gold - a very light tan with lots of brown speckles, from light to dark, plus a few veins). After being undecided on a backsplacsh and having the countertops put in, we decided to go with the same granite (2 cm) for the backsplash. It looks great and we like it better than having tile with lots of grout. It "unifies" the countertop between the upper and lower cabinets.

I'll try to post a few pics soon.

I did a post about a back splashes a while back here....

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread....me+improvement

We did a completed re gut of the kitchen about 2 years ago and I never did finish the bask splash. Finally decided to go with tin. It is tin ceiling material I just cut to make into a back splash. Little different, my wife really likes it (of course she picked it out). But easy for a DIY overall. We have tile floors so I didn't want tile backsplash. We have engineered counters (quartz) and the cost to do the entire area would have been more then te counters themselves (and I think it would not have looked as good). I was just going to wallpaper except for behind the stove, but really wanted more.

Ferris I just ordered the same cabinets for our upcoming kitchen.
We're going for a similar backsplash, the bisazzo Cipro.
And are undecided on the granite, mrs bdb doesn't think a black or ubatuba will work
but I do. your pics make it look awesome.

Black tends to be the most durable too. Mine is 'emerald pearl' which has worked out really well. a great resource for natural stone for me has been www.stonepowerhouse.com you get really quick feedback on their forum...

These are some of my favorite threads.

Ferris, you've inspired me. I just did something similar with my guest bathroom, except the colors were light brown/stone and a royal blue glass mosaic backsplash. No pics yet.

I wasn't planning on doing the kitchen. It has a spanish theme with spanish tile (white tiles with blue/yellow/orange painted designs) and orange Saltillo tile on the floor. The kitchen needs a change, though, because the countertops are wood grain laminate. I think it looks horrible and I know new counters would help a LOT.

Ferris, have you thought about replacing the door in the picture? That is another thing on my list of remodelling projects--new interior doors.

I could upgrade lots in my place its almost 20 years old. The next thing on my list when im ready is to refinish the wood floors, but im not looking forward to moving everything around to do it!

I remodeled my kitchen at my last house. I had always dreamed of a red, black, and white kitchen. About a year after that huge remodel we had a baby and ended up moving closer to my husband's office, but I hated to leave my kitchen behind.

The backsplash was a really cool tile.

This thread reinforces my desire to re-do my stinking little piece of shit kitchen over the next year or two. I want to make better use of the space and make it into a proper galley-kitchen. I am also thinking of a bump-out onto the back of the house/kitchen for a breakfast room w/ a counter-top breakfast bar where the exterior wall currently is. I would lose my deck w/ the bump-out, but I don't really give a shit - my family and I could eat at the breakfast bar or at the table in the new room. We like to hang out and socialize in our kitchens, and I can't do that in my current set-up.

Our kitchen is done in almost the same exact red that you used Jadzia. We had crappy wooden cabinets that i painted that bright red with the doors painted white. One accent wall is that bright red (near our table) and the other walls will eventually be painted a light grey. When my wife decides on the shade of grey she wants i may even repaint the white cabinet doors the same grey shade. We like very bright reds.
