What Houzz contributors are saying:
Herringbone tileAdd loads of texture to your kitchen with tile in a herringbone pattern. Many tiles in the herringbone pattern can be purchased on a mesh backing (usually a 12- by 12-inch backing material on the underside of the tile that holds several pieces together), which means you won’t have to lay out each and every individual piece.
Whether they're smaller tabs in silver or longer tabs in black, their look completely changes the kitchen. Strong black lines on the tops of all the drawers in this kitchen create a cool vintage-modern contrast.
Who needs custom cabinetry? These glossy white beauties are from Ikea (Akurum Abstrakt) and are accented with angular dark bronze pulls from Rocky Mountain Hardware. The showstopping herringbone marble backsplash is fashioned out of 2- by 8-inch Calacatta Michelangelo tiles. HanStone quartz (Aurora Snow) covers the countertops.The lesson here? It’s OK to splurge in some areas and save in others.
