Santa Monica Carrara White Kitchen Backsplash

In order to obtain the Carrara marble look without the Carrara marble price, the customer chose porcelain tiles from Jeffrey Court. These 4″ x 12″ tiles come with a believable grey marble veining. The grout used to finish the kitchen backsplash was Laticrete PERMACOLOR Select and the color used was Bright White. To trim the exposed tile edges, trim from Schulter was used that matched the pulls from the cabinetry. As always, the size of the space between the countertop and first row of tile was made equal to grout joint and filled with matching color Laticrete Acrylic caulk. Not grout as is often done. Finally, in order to achieve an even cleaner look, the outlet covers were replaced with Leviton Decora Screwless Wallplates .
