Over the last week Josh has cut, measured, installed and grouted the new kitchen tiles and we're very happy with the results. We were torn between our final choice below and the subway tiles (as mentioned in last month's post), but decided in the end that the subway tile colours might be a bit too dark for the kitchen.
We loved the random shapes in the tiles we used, but the randomness lead to a lot of cutting on Josh's part to obtain the straight edges required.

|Peeling off the plastic covering - the tiles were attached on the front with this covering, not with a mesh backing like you usually see|

There are still a few finishing touches required. I want to install two floating shelves in the open space to the right (seen in picture above). Josh would prefer to scrap the floating shelves and install some of the Ikea organizers as in the picture below.
