Construction2style Before & After: Kitchen Backsplash

Construction2style Before & After: Kitchen Backsplash

Jamie and Morgan, the dynamic duo behind construction2style always impress with their renovations, but their newest kitchen remodel absolutely blew us away. For this project, we teamed up to create a unique Diamond to Subway Tile custom kitchen backsplash. This tile installation was based on a simple concept, but has a strong impact.

Here's the story behind this stunning kitchen before & after: 


The Dream:

The dream for this kitchen was to show and inspire contruction2style's clients to take risks. Morgan wanted to push trending design elements as a showcase for her clients to see that being bold is a winning aesthetic. Open kitchen shelving, black cabinetry, and brushed gold hardware were all must-haves. 

For the tile: Jamie wanted a neutral mixture of whites, Morgan wanted all Diamonds with some black tile, and our founder Mercedes wanted to take it to the next level with multiple shapes.  Put all of those concepts together and you get this stunning backsplash. Now that's the beauty of collaboration! 

The Making:

As this was a bigger project, we made multiple mock-ups of the tile installation to ensure that everyone was happy with the transition from black diamonds to white subway tile. Then we printed our mock-up to full scale and our layout artists carefully placed each tile perfectly in order. Once the entire layout was mounted to sheets, we numbered the pieces and cut the project into smaller sections with an tile-by-number map in order to make install a breeze. 

2”x6” Subway Tile - 130 White. Medium Diamonds - 130 White, 77E Grey, 60 Silver Lining, 815W Light Grey, 155 Steel, 912W Cloudy Sky, 366 Satin Black, 613 Black.

The After:

The final kitchen will make your mouth drop! It shows the importance of considering tile in the overall design of the room. For example, the black ties together with the cabinetry while the white looks beautiful with the wooden floating shelves & the stunning Cambria Delgatie countertops. Since its recent installation, Morgan has hosted a glam brunch and been on our local news channel WCCO talking about this fantastic kitchen transformation! We hope that you enjoy all of the beautiful photos as much as we have. Ready to try this diamond to subway transition?
