Linden Hills Farmhouse farmhouse kitchen
 

Linden Hills Farmhouse

A traditional maple kitchen highlighted by stainless steel appliances and soap stone counters. The floor was salvaged from the 100 year old home that previously occupied the site.

Suggestions for backsplash? - We have the exact combination of counter tops and cabinets. Any suggestions on what color/type of backsplash would look good?

Great question! Not sure I have the perfect answer, but here is what we chose. Not shown in this picture (installed later) is a glass subway tile in green to match the wall color. The backsplash was only installed between the range and hood. I like the updated, yet traditional look that a glass subway tile brings to a project. Another option that could look good as an alternative to tile is just a stainless steel panel. Hope that helps!

Just an idea, the almost same size piece of butcher block from ikea costs only 195.00. But you have to oil it, which they also carry the oil for about 8.00

I would recommend to oil every wooden countertop used in the kitchen. By doing so you can check the "pearl effect" and see if it is protected against water. If the waterdrops don't "pearl" it's time for maintenance. An oiled countertop can be sanded very easy if you want to remove wear and tear marks. This is a lot more work if your countertop is lacquered. Keep a good eye on the edges if you have an undercount sink. It's end grain and needs more care than other parts of your top.

This is excellent for what you currently have going in the kitchen. The green you have right now is too dark olive. Change it to a closer tint of this green and this is the best overall look of your current kitchen you are going for.
