Too much white??????
April 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are redoing our kitchen and are going with a grey floor and white cabinets. We will probably use a white quartz with some very light grey veining. It will have a similar look to a marble. Do you think that continuing the wcounter top up to the cabinets will be too much white and too stark? Prehaps we woudl be better off with a light grey backslpash? Neither one of us likes a modern or cold look.

I love white and it can be warm and traditional - I think you have to be careful with the balance...

I think everything "marble" can be beautiful. That being said sometimes a backsplash is an opportunity to add something else you love, but then it's just up to your personal preference.

A glass mosaic tile with some color will add a little warmth to the kitchen while still being soft and subtle in it's appearance. Or a glass tile composed of differentiating shades of white, greys, blues.

I agree a glass mosaic will add some interest but still keep the room looking warm. Here is a Silestone Stellar Snow countertop with white glass tile.

i just finished a kitchen where we did the perfectly clear glass subway tile. When installed it turns this beautiful watery blue. I waited until the tile was installed before choosing the wall paint because I wanted an exact match. It turned out so beautiful….
