|copper tile back splash|
|"sandblasted" porcelain tiles set on angle.|
These "sandblasted" porcelain tiles are set on a 45 degree angle and give this backsplash a very durable finish. I love this color and the tile is VERY heat resistant. This is part of MY kitchen, I'm sharing with you. Note the black thing behind the cooktop is a fresh air vent. Our house is built with Insulated Concrete Forms and very air tight.. I will admit seeing this vent "off center" bugs the heck out of me but there was a stud in the way and they didn't want to trim it. I will fill you in later on the custom range hood above.. my dad built the frame and I faux finished it. Getting back to the tiles... they are super heat resistant. I love being able to remove something from the cooktop or oven without worrying about finding a potholder to rest it on! ;-) Clean up is a breeze also.. did I tell you how much I love my kitchen? I can live with the vent....
And last but not least Glass tiles are a traditional look. They get a very modern look from the RED vessel sink and raised faucet. A lovely accent for a 1/2 bath without going over your budget.
I really love the look of glass tiles for a backsplash. If you have a small kitchen, bath or if you just use the tiles to highlight the stove or a sink, you can save money and still have style.
Have a great weekend everyone!
