Need help on selecting color for new countertops
July 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm changing out my counter tops in the kitchen. Not sure what to choose. There are so many beautiful selections out there. All of the cabinets are white and the appliances are also white. The walls are gray( silver song color). I also want to put a back splash as well to go with the counter tops

I love Caesarstone Black Noir if you like contrast. Are you a contrast person or blend?

To be honest not sure. Just want something that i looks beautiful and will love for a long time. If i chose this for the counter top what would i use for a back splash

You will get so many suggestions.....:>) Mine is quartz, in white or black. There is a white that looks just like Carrera.

You could use glass tile in gray, white, silver, black for the backsplash.

If you want a pop of color you could add a little red, orange, yellow, or teal in the back splash also.

You're right about the vast number of surfaces to choose from. Galvanized steel or Copper adds a lot of punch to a white kitchen. Backsplash will make the biggest impact since it is more visible than your counters. Maybe add some interesting color and texture like stacked stone tile.
