Mid-Century Mod - Kitchen Tile Redo

This mid-century modern kitchen still had great cabinets and some cool features, such as the fiberglass paneled lighting at the top of the walls (see above kitchen sink) and a built-in wall radio. But the peach-colored tile on the countertops and backsplash looked really tired and clashed with the homeowner's lime green and brick orange walls.

So, we revamped the kitchen by removing the upper cabinets right above the cooktop to create an expansive backsplash, installed new tile for the countertop and backsplash, and installed a new single basin sink and sink faucet.

The countertop was installed with new 12" x 12" black tile (which looks a lot like soapstone at a fraction of the cost!) in a diagonal pattern and the backsplash was installed with a mixed glass/metal/ceramic mosaic tile blend.
