Splashing back

06th March 2011

Carri

I have designed 4 tile jobs in the past two years and helped with 2 others.  So, I think I’m getting some decent experience with tile and I love it.

Tile can change a look so dramatically and so fast!

This back splash was driving Dave crazy.  He just could not see my vision and how it would blend into this kitchen.

As you can see it turned out well.

Again it all goes back to planning, measuring, planning, mock ups and planning.

I think it all paid off.

Here is how the prep work goes.

I pre-cut as much as I can.  There are always special cuts you cannot make until you get there.

Spacers are so important.  Have plenty.

Grout and caulk come in so many colors now! You can use them as compliments to your design or to contrast.  I just love playing with the color options.

This is the last of the kitchen tile work.  We will move the air vent that is in the spot where the stove should be.

Here is the next project!  Can’t wait to get there!!!!!
