Hi I am looking for some suggestions for backsplash tile and paint color in our kitchen. We have warm cherry cabinets, stainless appliances and recently installed new venetian gold granite. I would like to stay transitional or traditional in keeping with the style of our home. I would appreciate any ideas regarding types of materials, pattern, size etc. I feel the granite is somewhat busy so don't really want to compete with it. Thanks!

Hi. I have seen some nice tile at Lowes lately that is specific for New Venetian/Venetian Gold; I think the tile manufacturers finally got wise!! Anyway, I have used several of them in houses recently and found there was a good selection there. I would keep it simple for sure, there's a nice glass 3 x 6 tile in a brown that's attractive.

Keep it simple and no pattern so it doesn't detract from the granite. Glass subway tiles are beautiful and timeless. I use 4x 8 size. Set in staggered pattern. Backsplash all the way up to the bottom of the cabinets for high end look.

You have dark cabinets and brown granite so choose a neutral or light color. Nothing dark or it will feel like a cave. You've got enough brown already. Cream or the lightest tone in your granite. Solid, no pattern or accent tiles.
