How do I do a subway backsplash?

What color would go with a light gray kitchen? What materials should I use, a tile or a glue on tile? What materials will I need? Where is the best place to shop for materials and best price? Should I frame the window in my kitchen overlooking the great room(that is the only opening to that room).

    Hi Cindy,
    I found a video that will show the process of installing subway tile. As for price, I'd suggest shopping around in the stores in your area, from your computer, to compare prices. Subway tile is usually white and that would look good with gray, however some stores do carry colored subway tile. You could try a dark gray, however the white will help keep you kitchen brighter. You could frame your window or you could use trim tile between the edge of the window and the tile to give it a finished look. This part is also shown in the video.

    Often large Home supply stores such as Lowe's and Home Depot offer free learning workshops or sessions on various diy tools and materials. Check with those in your area as to when they might have one on tiling. If you are inexperienced in this kind of project, this would be a good place to start.
