Kitchen Backsplash and Dining Wall Upgrades


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

It was time to spice up the Ollie, so I decided to add some contrast to break up that "sterile" look of all white in the kitchen and dining areas...  So, I added some Aspect Frosted Quartz Stone!  It's pretty easy to apply, it's a "lick 'em, stick 'em" product (peel and stick).  It is "real" quartz stone, doesn't add too much weight but worth it's weight in looks!

Here's what I come up with...

No, not at all... there's still so much white that reflects from the light, I don't notice it.  Maybe because I took the photos with the blinds closed and the LED's are on it may seem that way.  It really makes it look "classy".

I think it looks really nice, and quite a rich look!

So, real thin stone, and ok to use behind the stove?

Thanks SeaDawg!  

Yes, each tile is very thin with a 3M type backing.  No problem behind my stove.  

I’ve had this on for almost 1.5 yrs and easy to wipe off.  Very minor pealing in a spot or two but a very small drop of Locktite SG Gel and problem solved.

Easy to clean, no staining.  Actually better and safer than bare fiberglass.  

The stone will actually shield flames/heat infinitely better than without it.

I don’t get a lot of splatter from my iron skillet, but it still looks as good as the day I installed it. 

The 3M backing plus the natural stone keeps the dining area around the window cool to the touch in summer temps in Las Vegas (118 deg), in addition the Ollie’s double insulation.  

Naturally, the metal window frame is still blistering hot inside in those temps. 👍

I like your solution for the sofa conversion of the beds.  I'd do that, but the husband hates dealing with all the throw pillows.  I justify the few we have by making them serve double duty - in the dinette or for securing items in the overhead compartments while traveling.

Whoa . . . . . almost $200/sq ft!  Is that correct?  Definitely a "rich" look 😀

Oops!. . . . I read it wrong.  $200 is for the kit of 15 sq ft.  That's more reasonable

Hi Ray and Susan, I was able to find a discount coupon on the Internet before I placed my order, so I got it for less... don't pay retail, right?

I knew the look I wanted, so I went for it and haven't looked back.

Pretty cool. I’d love to see it in person. My only concern is that it would be difficult to clean, with the texture and all the joints. Is it?

Hi Overland, that was my number one concern.  If I do notice a spot, which is very rare for me, I just use a mixture of organic disinfectant/cleaner and it's a good as new.

Samples are the best way to decide, I just went for it and I'm real happy with it!
