Anyone who knows me knows I love my hometown, so it is always especially gratifying when my tiles are installed here in Kent, Ohio. This kitchen even features a "Kent" tile in honor of our lovely little tree city.
This kitchen renovation was a major project that spanned many months. Here is what the room looked like in progress:
And here is what it looks like now that it is finished:
What a transformation! I am so happy that my tiles get to be a part of this wonderful space. Because the project started so long ago, it includes tiles glazed in "autumn" which are no longer available due to supply chain issues. I am glad autumn glaze is part of this project because it harmonizes so well with the natural wood shelves and floor. A variety of different 2x2 inch handmade tiles were installed among commercially made subway tiles. Dark colored grout adds a bit of drama and helps the tiles stand out. The homeowners were able to find subway tiles that were compatible in size and reasonable in cost at home depot. These polished ceramic subway wall tiles were made by Ivy Hill. The color is "Newport White" and the size 2 in. x 10 in. You can see the size comparison to my tiles here:
The commercially made tiles have a bit of variation in shape, which helps them blend with the handmade tiles beautifully.
I really love how this project turned out! Thank you, J.M. for seeking out local, handmade tiles for your home, for sharing your project, and for all you do for our hometown. Kent is a better place with you in it!
