The last step in the kitchen remodel was the tile backsplash. I replaced the old pseudo Tuscan style tile with a textured white subway tile that looks incredible. The first step was to remove the old backsplash (which turned out to be two layers of tiles overlapping each other), and to cut and set the tiles.
After that, I went with a grey grout to contrast with the white tiles. The end result completed the look of the kitchen. With the new counters, paint, tile, floors, and stainless steel sink it feels like an entirely new kitchen, even though the cabinets are the same!
