How far would you continue backsplash?

We are thinking about putting up a white herringbone backsplash and white granite countertops. Considering doing a framed inset of magnetic chalkboard paint on the large wall. How far would you reco running the backsplash? All the way up the walls and behind sink wall or just half way and frame out the chalkboard? And if we do full wall, do we need a larger herringbone pattern? Thank you so much for your thoughts!

Hi Sabrina!

You have some awesome ideas! I would keep the scale of the herringbone as planned. Perhaps a full wall would a balance the chalkboard inset and also brighten the space. I LOVE your breakfast nook, the open floor plan and the natural light!. Hope this helps!

Warm regards,

I'd just do a half wall. I'm afraid a full wall of tile will make it look institutional.

You don't have a good stoping point from right to left or up. Anything you try to do isn't going to look good. My advice is don't put in a backsplash. A BS can look fantastic or like an afterthought. Yours will be the latter. Sorry, I know they're very popular now.

Do the chalkboard on the large wall and hang it just 5 inches above the back of your seat.

If you are really set on a backsplash best just to put it up the wall behind the range between the two windows.

I'm a big fan of full wall backsplash!! I wouldn't make the pattern bigger though.
