Diamond, Laureldale, maple whiskey black. This client did 2 kitchens with me in one year, relocation, both the same exact finishes. If you had to do it all over again what would you change...nothing:)

Love the backsplash. Is it sealed? - How difficult to clean with it behind the stove.

The clients don't tend to use their stove for many 'grease' items, so the application wasn't a problem; however, it is a natural stone which is porous by nature. It is recommended you seal any porous material in this application, after it's installed.

The granite is St. Cecilia; but may have another name based on your region and fabricator.

@ Design First Builders there was a question ask about this backsplash how easy is it to care for directly behind the stove where you would have grease to pop up. What's the answer?

Jamine,

The tile you are looking for is called 'ledger stone multicolor'. We purchased it from a local wholesaler, but we are told you may be able to find the product in your local Home Depot or Lowes, however, it may be listed under a different name.

The answer to your question on how to keep it clean; well... it can be tricky. It is a porous material, as any natural element is, so after your install you'll want to seal the tile. Check out Duponts website for what may work for you.

This technique should help keep things from staining the stone or settling on it's various surfaces. To dust, simply use a standard duster.
