Kitchen Marble Herringbone Backsplash: Before Installation
Kitchen Marble Herringbone Backsplash Part II
We ordered the kitchen backsplash from The Builder Depot. The herringbone marble tile was an exact match for our Carrara marble countertops. Click here for the details on the backsplash selection and sources.
The kitchen was gutted, so we started with a clean slate for the installation.
The marble countertops were fixed and turned out beautifully!
The paint is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.
We replaced the previous window sill with marble to match the countertops.
A single sink vs. a double bowl serves us really well. I can fit large pans with ease.
They did a really good job matching the marble seams, they are almost invisible from this angle.
During the layout of the kitchen we decided to separate the cooktop from the oven. I am really pleased with the Bosch cooktop we purchased. Cooking with gas allows me so much more control over temperature, and the because the cooktop is inset, it doesn’t break up the marble countertop.
Eventually we will add a pull out microwave drawer where the little black microwave is now.
I added a few stools to the island for seating.
