The subway tile is installed in both the kitchen and the main floor bathroom. The grouting won't happen until Monday, but the tile is all in place. The tiles themselves are square-edge reproduction tiles made by Subway Ceramics and we're having them laid as they were in period, with a 1/16th-inch grout line.
We went to great lengths to have as few outlets and switch plates on the backsplash as possible; it was quite a challenge with current code requiring plugs every two feet. Most of the outlets will be on the bottom-side of the upper cabinets. We ended with only one switch plate on the backsplash to the left of the refrigerator.
