We redid our downstairs half bath this spring and I fell in love. The original post can be found here. As we moved the renovation to the upstairs master bath, we realized that we had extra tile left over. Beautiful Carrera marble in a hexagon shape. See, I ordered the tile online because the price was cheaper. We didn't actually use it all upstairs. I figured that I could just return the rest. Little did I know, the return time on online orders like that is very limited. Hmmm...
So I wondered and thought about how I could use up more of that pricey tile. I had the idea to use it as a backsplash. Right in this space.
Two ideas came to mind. Formica and Wilsonart both make a faux stainless steel countertop. I sent away for samples and it looked pretty good. But, my other idea was Ikea. I hoped that maybe, just maybe they made something that could work. After a trip to the store and lots of exploring, I found the Sanfrid stainless steel tabletop. Only a few inches too big, I decided it would do. My fab contractor was able to cut it down to size. Best part, the Ikea version was only $129.00.
I used a medium gray grout in between the tile. It totally pops the room and makes it feel pulled together.
I can happily say that this room is done. As in done, done.
That is until I decide to change the accent color to a coral or teal.
