Lets Start From Back Splash

I am so grateful to  all of you for appreciating  my kitchen make over so much .As I  promised,I will share from failure to success. ..yes …I got failed,stressed out or whatever you say..almost about to give up.I changed my mind so many times and I am really happy with Canadian  Return policy otherwise I would have been bankrupt.You would be amazed I returned almost everything other than this my marble tiles,because I loved them alot. The only thing that gave me a lay out for my kitchen. ..than I realize need to do some paper work and did some online and in store search and finally decided to go with the “Monochromatic” kitchen (with same shades )of neutrals.


You have so much options to  choose from,its all depends how much  you wana spend.lets start ,from back splash .There are lot of options  available  from glass tiles to ceramic, metal and porcelain tiles.

If you are living in rental or do some simple DIY peel and sticks are available.They are easy, look good but kind of temporary make over.I liked metal peel and stick tiles but they are way too much expensive  for temporary  solution.It can be done if you have a small project.

20170121_222956We (me + Husband) mutually loved the “Valensa 2×4 “Mosaic subway tiles at Lowe’s and we brought them rightway.Intially I wanted to DIY but it was so heavy and thick.It cant be cut without professional grade tile saw.Renting a saw worth more than I hire…this is the only thing we didnt DIY..once you choose your tiles,you need to buy grout.Its upto you to choose the shade of your grout ,went with the almost same/lighter shade called “Alabaster”.I removed this cabinet  from the wall between window and walk out back yard.I had no idea about results.I was really scared but I love the results,this wall become focal point of my kitchen and  needs a make over.

People at home renovation centers are very helpful .You can ask them  what type of grout and adhesive would be used . You can see here how they look like after grouting is done..I am more than happy and enjoying my marble subwway tiles.
