I've been in this business for a long time and have seen many trends come and go.  Over the years, I have observed the trends in back splashes and they can date your house immediately.  So, if you are ready to update, it's important to choose a back splash that is timeless and classic.
Do you remember these dated tiles?
Maybe you still have them in your home?
Timeless and classic back splashes are like a good pair of jeans, you can dress them up or keep them simple. You can change your "accessories" or wall color to give your kitchen a totally different look without spending a lot of money every time the trends change.
Timeless and classic does not have to be boring! 
  • Change the pattern or color of classic subway tile.
  • Use marble or quartz tiles.
  • Add color to your grout.
If you already have a 4" granite back splash, remove it.  If you are purchasing new counter tops but aren't ready to install a tile back splash, don't waste your money buying that extra material. 
It becomes too "bossy" (too much pattern)
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Paula was an essential resource for us when we bought our new home and wanted to make it look like us.  She helped us with paint colors, kitchen counter tops, back splash and lighting to really make our home have a cohesive look.  We are the people that didn't know what we liked, but we knew what we didn't like, and Paula was able to take our input and come up with some great ideas.  We would definitely recommend Paula if you're wanting to put a personal touch on your home."
