I get this question all the time, I even got it today when I was working. Do I pick the granite first or the tile backsplash first? I always say, good question! There is more than one way to do this. What I like to do is assemble my pallet…pick a color of cabinet, select an idea or couple of ideas for granite and head to the tile store. Having enough samples with you and a good idea of what you would like always helps. Magazine articles and pictures off websites like those on www.capekitchens.com are great places to find examples of backsplash. Most important – BE FLEXIBLE – what you liked in the showroom may look different out in the world. The combination of color, design and finish may change based on which direction you head.
I am a big believer in the “Aha Moment” – when my clients see exactly what they want. I will tell you what I always tell my clients, if you trust your instincts you will get what you love.
Cabinet selection, Tile selection and Granite Selection are all services that I provide. My ultimate reward is hearing “Aha” then I know that I have done my job.
