In the first installment of Aaron & Heather’s Rustic Renovation we featured their new master bedroom suite which included new paint, flooring, tile, fixtures, and more! In this post we will examine how Aaron and Heather created an incredible kitchen and dining space in their new home. If you are reading this and find yourself asking, "gee, where can I get subway tile this spectacular?" don't worry! Check out our very own Subway Tile Theme Page.
Backsplash Features Essence 2″ x 6″ Subway Glass
For their new backsplash, they wanted something sleek and clean, but still timeless and elegant to last for years. They ended up choosing Essence 2″ x 6″ glass subway tile in color ‘Calcite’. They could not be more pleased with how the backsplash turned out. Heather offered this piece of advice for those considering a new backsplash,
“Order samples of everything you think you may like so that you can see how it looks with your cabinets and paint. You do not want to be surprised (in a bad way) with the end result.”
Custom Oak Flooring
The same custom oak hardwood that was used in the bedroom was extended into the kitchen area. With the mix of dark and light tones, this flooring is a great option for kitchens as it not only makes it versatile for coordinating colors, but also helps to hide the dirt and crumbs that come with a high traffic area.

Farmhouse Sink with Pendant Lighting
One of Heather’s favorite features of her kitchen is the farmhouse sink with pendant lighting overhead.
Stainless Spring Faucet from IKEA
One of the focal points of the kitchen is not only the farmhouse sink, but the stainless steel spring faucet. This faucet from IKEA works well in open space and coordinates well with the rest of the stainless kitchen appliances.
Dining Room Decor
In the dining room, Heather has added fresh paint and adorned with elements to reflect their personal style.
The clean look of the new subway tile backsplash is a major upgrade to the kitchen! If you are looking to refresh the look of your kitchen without breaking the bank, an updated backsplash is a great option!
