Need help with selecting a backsplash for my new kitchen...
July 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi...We are having granite put in our kitchen and I chose Crema Boreaux (this isn't the exact slab but pretty close). I cannot figure out what backsplash would look best. Also, these are my appliances if it makes a difference...

Since your granite is so busy (and beautiful!), I would choose a simple backsplash in just one color taken from the granite--probably either the lightest cream or one of the terracottas or golden shades. You could use a subway tile (either glass, ceramic or stone) in either a traditional offset brick pattern or stacked either vertically or horizontally for a more contemporary look. Or you could choose a stone or glass tile mosaic of different shapes, but in the same color. What I wouldn't choose is a busy multi-colored mosaic, which will compete too much with the busy granite pattern. Best of luck!

What are cabinets? how about a pale grey? I agree, nothing to busy or multi colored

Would you consider backsplashes in the same granite as the counter tops? If you do decide on a plain tile, ceramic might look too "different". Is there a plain granite or other stone which is the same color as the majority of your countertops - like a honey tone? The alternative would be stainless steel tiles to match your range. Are your other appliances stainless too?
