When we designed our kitchen….
We knew we wanted to keep it classic but with a youthful edge. We decided to go with a shaker style cabinet in Classic Grey by Benjamin Moore. We went back and forth on brass hardware or black and made a last minute switch to black. I am soooo happy we went with the black. The pops so nicely against the pale cabinets and our caesarstone counters.
When it came time to choose our back splash, we wanted to live in the space for a bit and really think about what we would do. Since we have Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore on all the walls and a pale grey on the cabinets we decided that a crisp white subway tile would be a great accent to the space and will not overpower the aesthetic.
There are so many types of subway tile on the market, but we went with a hand formed 3″x12″ Masia Blanco tile by Centura Tile. You can see below that it accent the rest of the kitchen finishes without overpowering the space.
Since we added the window and moved the sink over to the exterior wall, we didn’t want to have upper cabinets on either side of the window, so we decided to keep it open and add tile to the entire wall to the underside of the ceiling. It adds a lot of visual interest without crowding the space.
I will share our complete kitchen over the next few months. Life has been busy and we’re still settling into the house and I cannot wait to share it with you guys.
