Partial Kitchen Reveal

Here's the backsplash reveal!

Until it's 100% finished I will not reveal the whole kitchen - that's how I am! I do not want to present it, until it's to my high standards. I am waiting on a ventilation installer to install the hood and a piece of chalk art to complete the space.

I was able to lay out all of the tiles first to omit undesirable or chipped ones, which took me about 3 hours. I placed my favorites above the stove and under the sink window.

It took the installer about 5 hours to place the tiles yesterday and today he came back to grout. The tile is showing a little darker here because it's still wet from smoothing and cleaning up the grout.

I am in love with it! It was worth the wait to find the right batch. Carrara can be very gray or have yellow in it. I was able to order a box to approve the lot and was successful the first time.

I chose a different tile for the bar area because I wanted something unique here, as it's opposite and on the other side of the fireplace. I chose polished Snow White Quartz 3cm because it's much more durable and stain resistant than the quartzite I used for my main countertops. So when acidic drinks spillover I won't have to pray for no etching or damage.
