Backsplash mistake to ceiling or hood?

Brian M
May 31, 2018

We just had some backsplash put in today and I'm very unsure about it.

with the trim lines and crown at the ceiling would you go higher up.... like all the way to ceiling ?" Or woild you stop just short of ceiling.

my ceilings are only 7 n half feet tall. Does the reveal of too much wall kind of give a sandwhixh look?

I wanted to get something that wasn't white on white backsplash

honest opinions appreciated

    I think I would take the backsplash to the ceiling --maybe someone w/better computer skills than I could mock it up for you?

    Yes, take it all the way up!

    To complete the desired finished look-you need to take the back splash to the ceiling.

    I would agree with the others and go all the way up for sure. It's looking like a great kitchen overall, well done!

    @jennifer I'm the type I would have it torn down tomorrow and put new one up lol

    Brian, the color is a little dark for my taste, but I think that's just a matter of preference. The tile seems to blend well with everything.

    @darsaj I agree also, the only problem is my wife does not feel the same way!!! This was before backsplash

    @Brian M what kind of tile is that? It’s pretty! I got a sample of a glass subway tile in taupe and it looks kind of similar

    What was the thought behind the choice of grey backsplash w/the island color? Not sure it works, but hard to tell from photos.

    Defiantly go all the way up

    Are you saying your wife likes it or not likes it? Happy Wife, Happy Life :)

    Definitely to the top. Color seems to go with counter AND island. Can we see a pic that includes island to confirm? Wht is wife's concern?

  • Brian M

    Would anybody try to paint the wall above to match the tile or will that be a mistake ??

    Ceiling. I like the color and your wife may, as well, once everything is finished.
  • tedbixby

    Brian-mistake to paint the wall. It will look like you ran out of tile and couldn't get any more. Run it to the ceiling.

    I love the color backsplash you went with! It looks fantastic. I too would go up to the ceiling with the backsplash.
  • pdjh
    Up to the ceiling! The colour is fine-especially if you’re adding under cabinet lighting to brighten it up.

    For what it's worth , 8 months after the fact, I think that color gives a nice focal point and I would have taken it to the ceiling. What did you decide on?
