Kitchen remodel green glass subway tiles

green glas subway tile

Initially the choice was 3×6 inch steel blue glass subway tiles with a light blue accent tile. But somewhere in the mix we decided that the primary walls would be green and that the green glass subway tiles with a light green accent tile would be a little more lively. The Fusion quartzite island had matching green and blue embedded within it, and the emerald pearl countertops eased right into the theme. The whole combination is a pleasant splash in contrast to the various stainless steel appliances soon to be installed. And apparently as we continue to find blue and green things about the house it was a more of a subliminal color choice than we had realized.  So far the only drawback has been the replacement of the kitchen window, which originally was mostly hazed, cracked and not viewable, now allows us to see outside (which is not really a sight to be seen). We are now trying to determine the best approach to this, whether the answer be shades, custom stain glass insert or other ideas that allow light in, but obscure the very non-scenic perspective. Appliances are running a bit late on order, but it’s hopeful that those too will be installed. Until then browse away.
