On Saturday we went to the Decoglaze showroom to double check our choice of glass splashback. At our colour appointment with Wisdom they suggested ‘Latte’ would go well with our choices of cupboards: Laminex Espresso Ligna silk and polyurethane white satin, against our Caesarstone benchtops of Emperadoro and Oyster. The sample in the Timpelle showroom looked good but I just wanted to make certain.
I’m nervous about all the colours, especially tiling etc because of getting it wrong previously. I chose the tiles in my last kitchen thinking they were a rich cream but in situ they became mushroom. It detracted from the overall look of the kitchen and has bugged me ever since, hence our little road trip.
I’m pleased to say that the latte looks great. The Maltese looked nice as well but then the sales lady said ‘it almost has a mushroom hue in some lights …’ and that was that – Latte it is!

Quite a few people make a bold statement with their glass splashback colour but not us I’m afraid, nice and neutral this time. I did like the one which was wine being sploshed around … you can have any photo put behind the glass.
We have signed off our kitchen plans from Timpelle. Lots and lots of pages but here is a sneak preview:
There will be a join in the cooktop benchtop unfortunately as the bench at 3.1m is longer than the piece of Caesarstone. There are bulkheads over the cupboards and the gaps are for the double oven, microwave and American fridge freezer. The overhead cupboards have been dropped for the vertically challenged – that’s me!
Butler’s Pantry looks good:
