Just completed! 3x6 Tumbled Travertine Backsplash with a Honey Onyx Liner

One of my best friends, Jesse Sanders of Briebug Software, did an amazing job building a website for Front Range Backsplash and asked me to help out a good friend of his who was getting her old house remodeled.  So of course I took on her Denver kitchen remodeling project and completed it at just material and fabrication cost to say thanks to Jesse for all he has done for me. 

The kitchen was gutted when we started this project, so no before pictures here!  Based on the existing tile floor and cabinet color chosen by Janene, Front Range Backsplash assisted in kitchen countertops and backsplash design by suggesting a low cost Santa Cecilia granite countertop with a 3x6 Tumbled Ivory Travertine on the backsplash.  I recently discovered a newer product line at Tile For Less that is a 1x2 brick-set Honey Onyx mosaic for only $14.99/sheet!  So we incorporated that into the liner bar. 

Here are Santa Cecilia Granite pictures, and tile backsplash pictures:

Thanks to Jesse and Briebug Software for a job well done on my website!  And thanks to Janene for trusting FRB to assist in making the granite countertop and backsplash tile design choices.  

3x6 Glass Backsplash - Arizona Tile Cashew with Daltile MS11 Liner

A Greenwood Village, Colorado backsplash was just completed in The Preserve for the Arlen family.   Patty wanted to break up the matching slab countertops and 2 cm slab backsplash and add a glass tile backsplash.  She also wanted to remove the bread drawer/garage to open up her counter space.  Here is the before:

With kitchen tile design assistance from Front Range Backsplash, Patty decided on taking her already chosen Arizona Tile 3x6 Cashew and adding a Daltile Metal Signatures MS11 1.5"x12" liner to the backsplash.  The final product was excellent and ready for her daughters graduation party!

Thanks to Patty for having confidence in Front Range Backsplash to do a professional job on her kitchen remodeling project.

Many thanks to Courteney Fisher of Golden, Colorado for giving Front Range Backsplash, LLC. the opportunity to take on her kitchen remodeling project.  This large kitchen is being completely remodeled with new cabinets, new granite countertops and Cambria quartz countertops, new stone or glass tile backsplash, new paint, electrical modifications, and refinished hardwood floors.

Here are the before pictures:

 And after a few days of demo, today it looks like:

Cortley Lolley and Dudley Heilieger were amazing helpers in tearing this out.  And thanks to Tony Cardinale of Colorado Cabinet Coatings of Denver for taking the old cabinets to use for future home shows.

There will be ongoing blog postings on this project.  Next comes electrical!
