Rasmussen / Su Architects
The sink portion of the countertop measures approximately 54" x 36" (including the area for the stools).

Back-splash. I want put subway tiles on the wall over my back-splash. A sin?

I think the question is subway tile looks good "above" existing backsplash, not if subway tile is pretty.....
I too have that question....

Subway tile as a backslash is a classic! Go for it!
Ideally the countertop should stop at the wall and the backsplash goes from there to the back of the cabinet.
You could remove the existing one easily as it usually is a different piece from the countertop.
You wouldn't have to worry too much about the wall being damaged since you are going to tile over it.
Putting backsplash on top of the existing one would be odd I think.

What is the width of the counter with the sink and red barstools? - It looks wider than average. Also, was the base cabinet at left (facing the table) built extra-deep to make up for the extra counter width? Beautiful job! Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Small Kitchen, Big View
The designers opted for a C-shaped kitchen layout (a.k.a. U-shape). This arrangement is a great solution for kitchens tight on space, because they keep the work areas separate from main traffic routes. The kitchen also opens up to the dining and living room in the house, so the style had to be compatible with the more traditional look of these rooms. Sticking with a clean and simple design countered the more ornate Victorian detailing, and natural materials enhanced the exposed wood ceiling. Faucet: Grohe Minta; sink: Franke; flooring: white oak; barstools: Ikea; hood: Zephyr
