Anytime we were in Lowes, Home Depot, or the expensive tile store we would look and pick out samples we liked, but couldn't come to an agreement on one. We even bought a 12x12 sheet of several different tiles to view in the kitchen, but they were either too dark, too bland, too busy, or too modern. Our cabinetry is a medium cherry color and door design is rather traditional, so that's why some of the tile we liked was too dark and others too modern. Our granite counters have a lot of 'movement' in them, so that is why some of the tile was too busy.

My colleague Erin's husband is part owner of a tile installation company so he will be putting it up for us this weekend. I can't believe that after living in this house for over 7 years, we will finally have the backsplash we've wanted! Look for photos on Mon.
