A while ago (in our Grout Dilemma post) we asked for your opinions on what color grout to go with the white subway tile that we picked out for our kitchen backsplash. The majority of you went with white grout, which is what we ended up choosing! Thank you for all your input.
We went to several different tile/kitchen places for the subway tile and most places wanted between $2.50 and $3.50 per tile (for 3×6 white subway tiles). We finally decided to go check out Home Depot to see if they had them and they didn’t, but someone there told us to go check out Lowes. We are so glad we did because we got the tiles for $0.22 cents each! This entire project with all the supplies cost us less than $85.oo!
Here are a few before/prep shots:
We spent one entire day installing the backsplash (about 7 hours), which was a little longer than expected. Putting up each tile with the spacers and making all the cuts for the edges was really time consuming. It’s a very messy DIY project too!
We waited a full 48 hours before grouting, but that was quick and painless and we are very happy we went with the white grout!
And finally everything is back in order and the only thing left to do now is the moulding on top of the cabinets. Once that is done, a big kitchen reveal post will come!
We’re extremely happy with how it came out! What do you think?
