Need Kitchen Decorating Ideas? 
 This page shows before and after pictures of how an uninspired cooking area can be revitalized by removing one cabinet and adding a custom kitchen backsplash and stainless/glass hood.  

The customer sent in this picture and asked, What can I do to rescue this backsplash area?  

Artist Linda Paul  looked at the picture and suggested that the center cabinet be removed and a new custom backsplash be designed and customized to fit entire back splash area and a new glass and stainless hood be installed. The area needs light,  life and depth.

Design Phase
The customers favorite Linda Paul painting  was
Roses and Vines, which perfectly compliments the black granite and honey oak cabinets.  So the artist set to work on designing a custom tile mural to fit the space.

Linda created a mock up design so the customer could get an idea of what the finished custom mural would look like in their kitchen

The customer loved the design but wanted a few less roses under the cabinets and a couple at the very top. He also wanted the 2 granite side splashes replaced with matching custom splashes

So Linda got to work creating the custom mural and backsplash

Installation Phase Begins

In this picture,  the backsplash installation begins.

Installation begins at the bottom centre part of the mural and works out and up from there. This is done because you want any tile cuts to be on the edges where they are less visible.

Installation continues
The tile back splash installation continues to the top and sides. This mural will be grouted although some customers  prefer to place their tiles tight together and not grout.

Project is Completed
