Granite Kitchen Backsplash

The kitchen backsplash and tile floor are finally all finished. There are still little things undone in the kitchen - such as replacing the trim around the cabinets and the toe kick. But our installer has finished his part, anyway.

We are going to be installing under cabinet lighting, and when that is installed - I will be able to get a picture that really shows the backsplash nicely. It looks terribly dark here, but when I used the flash all I got was reflection. The granite we used is called Baltic Brown and comes from Finland. The countertops are 1 1/2" slabs, but the backsplash is made of 1/2 tiles in Baltic Brown and Black granite. The grout color we used in the tile on the floor as well as the backsplash is called Mocha, which is also the color of the Elkay eGranite sink.

Our installer was Owen Joki from Rock Solid in Billings.
He does very good work and is super reasonable and a very pleasant person to work with. He had a lot of good ideas and was able to execute them well.

We replaced the cabinet door pulls with oil rubbed bronze, and we love the kitchen faucet by Delta. The water filter faucet is by Kingston Brass. Both faucets are in the oil rubbed bronze finish. All our appliances are black.

I look forward to getting the window valance back in place. It is made of rust dyed cotton. However, we are still installing hardwood flooring in the bedrooms, and so I am not decorating until we are done creating dust!
