Tile Backsplash


I'm trying to decide on the tile backsplash.  I wanted to use the glass and travertine mix for the whole thing.  Right up to the bottom of the cabinets.  Until I discovered it was about $35 per square foot.  Let's see, we have about 30 square feet times...where is that calculator.

Holy Smokes!  Over $1000, just for the tile.  Never mind.


Okay, so I can use the glass/tile mix for an accent and add some travertine tile and that makes it more reasonable.


I really like these tiles, but they are a bit pink.  Real cute though.

We just have to do the tile and get a sideboard to turn into a wet bar and we will be ready to carpet.

One problem.  While checking out the tile we also priced some carpet.  And I thought the backsplash was pricey!


  1. Okay, so like when I get really really really old, I'm gonna come live in your basement. :)

  2. There are some beautiful tiles there. Hard to choose because I'd want this one and that one... oh no, how about this one. I'm glad it's you and not me!
