Heather’s kitchen walls weren’t working for her anymore, and she decided that she wanted to make a change by adding a new backsplash. She turned to South Cypress to find a tile that would work for her.
Heather installed the backsplash herself
Heather wanted a glass subway tile that would complement her busy granite. Eventually, she decided on Storka Urban Hues 3″ x 6″ in color Latte.
Heather used a wet saw to make necessary cuts
Heather completed the entire project on her own. This was a true DIY project from start to finish!

Heather made all of the cuts in the tile using a wet saw with the proper blade for cutting glass tile. She says that she was terrified at first of using a wet saw, but it turned out to be super easy, and she still has all of her fingers!
The finished kitchen
The finished backsplash is a major improvement over the bare wall! Heather did a phenomenal job, and the cuts in the tile are professional quality!
It’s amazing what a new backsplash can do for a kitchen!
Heather wanted a tile with classic simplicity that would endure the test of time. She says that this tile turned out to be the perfect glass subway tile.
The tile matches the granite countertop well
Heather says the whole project took her about 3 days to complete, and cost about $700. For anyone looking to complete a similar project themselves, she says to make sure to get a wet saw that you can use to cut the glass tile, and always wear safety glasses and protective gloves while using it!
