I'm not giddy or anything though. Not at all. I enjoyed not having a kitchen or dining room for 2 weeks. Enjoyed like one might enjoy a root canal or a termites.
Now that the cabinets are finally a reality, I'm starting to consider the backsplash. I wasn't planning on doing anything about a backsplash since we already have a 4" silestone backsplash. Here's a reminder of the counter we are reinstalling:
But I can't get subway tile out of my head. A bit generic, I know, but add dark grout and you have a feature that honors the age of the house (113+). Something like this drool-worthy space (via Lingered Upon):
BUT adding tile into the kitchen would add extra cost, so that's where the debate comes in. Do I reinstall the countertop and backsplash as is, and maybe add tile on top at a later date, or have them just reinstall the countertop but not the backsplash and convince Hubby that tile's the way to go? Such decisions!!
Don't worry, Wednesday I'll have a non-kitchen related post and hopefully post a reveal of the kitchen work on Friday. Until then, what's your backsplash vote? Tile, solid surface or both?
