In the next year or so, we’re re-doing our kitchen. This has me hunting for a backsplash to go behind our range, which is going to be giant at 56 inches wide.
We’re looking for clean, classic materials that will age well. Think British countryside home. No fake aging, no antique treatments, but materials that are tactile and will show their age, as they age, in a way that will fit in with the house. After much searching, this has left me with two primary candidates – encaustic cement tiles, or a soapstone slab.
