Project Pick: Cuban Tiles make Eye-Catching Backsplash

Cuban Tiles Create an eye-catching backsplash
Photo Credit: Kelly von Stroh, Durango, CO, Avente Customer

This month's project pick comes from Kelly von Stroh, an Avente customer, in Durango, Colorado. Kelly was kind enough to send us a photo of her installation and an email that started like this:

"I forgot to send you a picture of our tile installation! It looks great! We LOVE it, and get TONS of complements on the tiles!"

- Kelly von Stroh, Durango, CO

Durango, Colordo is in Southwestern Colorado. It's a beautiful place and is nestled at the foot of the San Juan Mountains. In the summer the bright green aspen, blue spruce and dark green fir trees create a verdant landscape against the rocky brown and grey mountains. You can see where Kelly's inspiration for the kitchen's color palette came from.

The cement tile backsplash is stunning! The kitchen color design is excellent. The green in the tiles looks so nice with the dark wood cabinets and gray tones in the slate flooring. Kelly did a great job of letting the tiles be the focal point of the room  the counter and floor are not fighting for attention. As you can see from Kelly's photo, cement tiles provide jaw-dropping beauty and really are show stoppers.

Find out more about this project and Kelly's design process on our blog, Avente Tile Talk. There are some great tips and ideas for anybody that is considering Cement Tile for their project! Read:

Tile Tip:

When planning a budget for small cement tile projects, estimate the cost of freight at about 30-50% of the total order cost.

This is common for small projects when using cement tiles for a fireplace, backsplash or small bathroom where residential delivery is required. The cost of freight increases even more when you aren't near a large city or major shipping lane. In the installation shown in the month's project pick, the freight costs were 45% of the total order cost.
