Kitchen Marble Herringbone Backsplash: Before Installation

June 9, 2014

Kitchen Marble Herringbone Backsplash Part II

We ordered the kitchen backsplash from The Builder Depot. The herringbone marble tile was an exact match for our Carrara marble countertops. Click here for the details on the backsplash selection and sources.

The kitchen was gutted, so we started with a clean slate for the installation.



The marble countertops were fixed and turned out beautifully!


I was nervous about the brass faucet being a little over the top, but it really set off the crystal knobs and brass drawer pulls.


The paint is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.


We replaced the previous window sill with marble to match the countertops.


A single sink vs. a double bowl serves us really well. I can fit large pans with ease.


They did a really good job matching the marble seams, they are almost invisible from this angle.


During the layout of the kitchen we decided to separate the cooktop from the oven. I am really pleased with the Bosch cooktop we purchased. Cooking with gas allows me so much more control over temperature, and the because the cooktop is inset, it doesn’t break up the marble countertop.


Eventually we will add a pull out microwave drawer where the little black microwave is now.


I added a few stools to the island for seating.

    This might be a stupid question, but where’s the oven located?

      In the island 🙂 splitting up the two appliances works really well. The pit and pan storage is right under the cooktop.

I want to know what you think, so please share your thoughts
