Ever since I saw Julie's kitchen, I have coveted white glossy Moroccan tile for the kitchen backsplash.
So - on my search, I've narrowed it down to these:
At Overstock: 10+ sq ft for $64.99
(bottom tile) Edgewater Studios for $40/sq ft
I like Edgewater Studio's use of tile for the hearth (is that the correct term for it?). We were just going to get a slab of marble at a remnant store. Do you think it would be overkill to use the same tile for the backsplash (only a small 3x3 ft space above the stove) and the living room hearth (just the floor portion)?
Since we aren't getting too fancy with any of the work, we figure we should splurge on high impact items to increase the resale value. Would this "wow" you during an open house?
Before Repointing - We'll keep the white mantle for now
After Repointing - Tile would go on the floor in front
Unfortunately, the fireplaces will not be operating. They will be outfitted to, but the complete process is out of the budget. When we win the lottery, we'll make the living room one functioning. For now, I like this idea
