What color and type of material would work well with my ceramic floors and granite counter?

A cream coloured glass or ceramic subway tile. I think you need to keep it simple.

Depending on the height of your backsplash, I would do four patterns of 4" x 4" tiles, mixed up like a quilt. So many backsplashes are so boring.

Here are some tiles for an exterior shower we put together. You can find some tiles in terra cotta and cream tones like this...

I was thinking of some sort of tin material, do you think that would work?

Vita, this is the look you would have with tin, although in this pic granite is darker and not as busy. Are you thinking silver? Or is this available in other finishes?

I used the same granite and cabinets in my bathroom and while I use the granite for a backsplash I used subway tile which matched my floor ( which is a bit lighter than yours from your pics) for my tub surround so as not to take away from the beautiful inclusions
in the granite.

Do you think if you took whatever you do, all the way up to the soffit, it would enlarge the space?

I think finding a backsplash to go with granite that has a lot of movement is one of the most challenging things! If you can't do a short back splash of the same material like strejul did....go with something simple. These crazy patterns and colors against a busy granite give the eye no place to rest.

I would suggest a tempered glass backsplash always using a spacer at the location of stove because of the heat factor. Because the counter is so busy having a solid glass would be easier on the eyes.
