White Subway Tile Backsplash with Black Cabinets

Cabinets & more 11.16.14
While everyone is lightening their kitchen spaces with white cabinets (which I adore!) I decided to keep my dark cabinets which are easier to clean. I wanted to brighten up the space though so I added a stark white subway tile backsplash for less than $200.

    Thank you everyone. It looks so sleek and sophisticated now. I can't believe it is in my house.

    Yeah to dark cabinets. I'm trying to figure out how to have a "cottage" kitchen with dark cabinets?

    The cabinets look great, you have inspired me to get started om my kitchen. How did you prep the cabinets and what type of paint did you use.

    When I take down the cabinets I plan to sand and paint the boxes, will an interior semi-gloss paint work? do I have to do anything else?

    Beatrice I probably wouldn't go glossy in a kitchen . That is my personal preference though. It is up to you.

    Angela, I used a regular satin paint. I also distressed them so I didn't prime the cabinets but I did sand it down completely with a fine grit sandpaper to take the gloss off it.

    Sharron an interior semi gloss should work fine the key is to prep them cabinets well. Wash with TSP or soap and water and then sand them down or put a deglosser on them to prep them for painting.

    I'm a little late to this post. So glad you didn't paint those cabinets! I absolutely LOVE black cabinets, and they look so good next to your white subway tile backsplash.

    this is a really late comment but I was wondering what color your grout is and how big is the spacing? We were given two boxes of free white subway tile for our kitchen and was debating on grout color and spacing.
