I am leaning towards tumbled marble subway tile. I wanted to have behind the chimney hood tiled up to the ceiling, and then I realized that my cabinets don't go up to the ceiling! With the crown molding they will be appx. 2-3" short of ceiling height. Do you think the tile would look funny with the painted wall space that would be on each side above the cabinets. I was thinking I could put crown molding up but would that be too much with the crown on the cabinet?? Any suggestions out there, or pics if someone who has something similar.
