Mint Glass Subway Backplash
Kayce was looking for a backsplash for her new home and wanted something “beachy”, but a more muted color. Kayce chose Urban Hues ‘Mint’ from Southcypress.com because it was the perfect color.
Not only was Mint the perfect color, but it could be installed in a herringbone pattern which was exactly what she wanted. While a herringbone pattern will require more cuts, it will definitely make a statement and can be worth the extra effort.
Kayce used Bostik Dimension Urethane Grout for her backsplash and can only truly be appreciated in person. Dimension grout contains micro glass beads and a translucent, urethane binder that both reflect light as well as allow it to pass through. This creates a unique reflective appearance in all tile installations as well as a three dimensional effect within glass tile installations.
The ‘Mint’ color looks stunning against white cabinets and with stainless steel appliances. Kayce says that while glass tiles are more difficult to work with, it is worth it in the end. Kayce was also surprised to learn that the herringbone pattern did not create as much waste as originally expected.
A few more cuts and replacing outlet covers will complete this stunning backsplash and beautiful kitchen.
