I had a friend warn me when we started our kitchen remodel: most people spend at least a year waiting to finish the last 20% and the final details. I laughed, and swore that would never be us! Oh how 2020 played a fun trick on us turning us into this exact statistic. But friends, I have to tell you the last 20% is my favorite part of my entire kitchen!
Choosing a Kitchen Backsplash with White Cabinets
Figuring out our kitchen backsplash with white cabinets was a bit of a feat! I wanted our floors and cabinets installed so I could get a feel for our new space before I made the final backsplash decision. I love classic elements that don’t go out of style. That’s why we opted for white cabinets in the first place, even with all the fun color options trending right now. In my heart, I knew a bright white kitchen is still my favorite thing. I’m also a sucker for a mid-century modern style. Yes, I love mid-century modern kitchens! On top of this, I really do love color! I worried neutral floors with white cabinets would be too neutral for me, and I was 100% open to a fun pop of color or unique design for a modern backsplash in our new kitchen.
Our Kitchen Remodel Delay
We had every intention of choosing backsplash tile within a week of our cabinets and floors being installed. And then a pandemic happened, and my plan to go find the perfect tile came to a screeching halt. We had no idea the world would shut down and stores would have to close for several months. At first, this felt so overwhelming as we lived with walls that needed drywall repair and were screaming for a backsplash.
Stores only offered online purchasing options, which I so appreciate the innovation in an unprecedented time! But the way I’d planned to remodel, I truly needed to step foot in-store to see which style would best work for our kitchen backsplash with white cabinets framing it. The day Floor & Decor opened was such a joyful day! It felt like fate happened! We discovered that waiting brought the perfect mid-century modern backsplash tile into our lives! It was love at first sight and just screamed “I’m perfect for your kitchen!”
