I love the granite. But i would personally stay away from doing the backsplash the same. Thats my opinion. Maybe too busy but it hard to tell from a picture.

I like the granite but I prefer stone with lots of movement and pattern, many people do not. I would not use it as the backsplash - I would tone the backsplash down with something very subtle.

The granite is a beautiful granite. Just make sure that you a ready to live with such cool colors, and if not make sure you have ways to warm it up. A contemporary look will lend itself well to this, though.

We would only be using this granite on the countertops. I think using it as a backsplash would be too busy. I was thinking of using a gray glass tile backsplash.

It is nice builder's grade granite, and it will be as good as any....

Like the backsplash, but the counter added to it doesn't look right. For the counter choose a pattern less busy say a solid color. I would go with white

I like it, but I agree about using a different backsplash.
