To tile or not?

ginainsbMay 13, 2013
I have a u shaped kitchen. We are refacing oak cabinets to white shaker. I am shopping for a black quartz countertop. My design inspiration is the "something's gotta give" kitchen. In this design they have a white 3x6 subway tile backsplash. My dilemma: I have a sink on the right wall but no cabinet to the right of the sink. I can tile up to the cabinets on two walls but the wall with sink would have tile up to cabinets only on one side. Do I tile to same height on the right of sink although there is no cabinet? Or do I not tile at all? Thank you for your help.

My kitchen has this similar layout with a cabinet to the left of sink minus the cabinet to the right of the sink.

I would tile it all to the same height (bottom of cabinets) and put bullnosed edge subway tiles on the top edge of the area that doesn't have cabinetry.

Tile to the same height all the way around... And maybe install floating shelving in the empty space where you're missing a cabinet. This may help balance out that wall.

Just what I was going to say too. Loved the house in that movie. (Not the movie as much.)
