white subway tile backsplash with white open shelves, farm sink and granite countertops. Beautiful. Except I know from experience that those things will get a disgusting film on them from being out in the open if they aren't being used and washed ALL THE TIME. Sigh
We saved money using a standard 3x6 white subway tile from Home Depot. Even though our backsplash tile choice was cheap, it's still a classic look and I really love the way it looks all the way up to to the ceiling behind the open shelves, and around the kitchen window. I also really love the light grey grout we selected. It is subtle, but really makes the tile a feature in the kitchen.
