I am in the middle of trying to decide what tiles to choose for our kitchen splashback. The vision that i intially had for my kitchen is to keep in something along the lines of a french provincial kitchen! We couldn't afford all the features of a french provincial kitchen so chose the ones we could afford to still create that feel.
For a french provincial kitchen i thought i might go for a small white 100mm x 100mm tile to give it the feel i wanted. Like that one below (Minus the terrible colour combination) BUT do you think I could find these type of tiles in Toowoomba?? NO!! It seems that all most of the tile shops in toowoomba do not stock this type of tile anymore and the ones that do only have a very basic range! So i was a little more than stumped at this point as that is what i had planned in my head to do! So after looking around and trying to figure out other tiling options.... my fuzzy cotton wool head kicked in and i was stumped!!

I have a brief thought on our "hardware" such as doorknobs, handles and tapware. I found this fantastic website called flatpak kitchens which is located in South Australia. I initially found them on the net to find replacement door handles for our cupboard doors throughout the house. They were so kind and even sent out a handle free of charge so i could check that it would fit and suited the house!

If the kitchen man we are going with doesn't have anything similar to what i like i will probably get them off these guys again. This is my current ideas for the kitchen hardware! What do ya think?

Hopefully my cotton wool head will subside so i can begin to "think" again! :-)
