Tile Finished, Potfiller Installed
We chose a white arabesque tile (this brand came in 12x12 mats) and went with white grout because I really didn't want the tile to draw too much attention. I'll be honest, I do like the look of arabesque tile when a contrasting grout color is used, but in this case, I just didn't
want that to be too much of a focal point.
I've found I also like the look of the curved tile with all the straight angles in the rest of the kitchen. My first thought was that we had "fancied up" our kitchen. We decided to only tile the wall where the stove and fridge are. The stainless steel countertop has a backsplash, so a tile one wasn't necessary behind the sink. Plus, I like the warmth the paint provides.
