What a difference mosaic tile makes! Check out the latest transformation in the Grove Pointe kitchen:
Our mission began with a trip to Home Depot to scope out our tile options. I brought an extra tile from the first portion of the backsplash that we completed last week, and a sample of our new Formica that is on the counters.
We had planned on spending around 10 dollars per tile and needed 14 to complete the area above and around our sink. We started to look at the different choices, and Nick (per usual) spotted a deal!
At $4.99 a tile, Majestic Ocean was our choice! And it helped us save half our budget! Nick grabbed the tiles and we were quick to check out and head home to get started.
We were able to use the same grout we used on the other portion of the backsplash so we got to it and started sticking up the new tiles.
Goodbye gross brown uncovered walls and hello pretty new tile! The sink was in the perfect spot to hold the grout.
Nick finished putting up the rest of the tiles and then stood back to bask in the new look!
Then we used trim like we used in our bedroom makeover to trim out the rest of the edges surrounding the cabinets. We still need to caulk the trim but I think it looks great and is such an improvement from before!
Here you can see the trim under the cabinets by the other backsplash. I am so happy with the progress we have been making in the kitchen and even happier that it hasn’t cost us a fortune!
Next kitchen project will be removing the linoleum floor and putting in a new tile floor. Any projects taking place in your kitchen currently?
