Granite Backsplash
Carol
September 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We recently did a partial kitchen remodel because our kitchen was very dark with cherry cabinets, wood floor and black granite countertops and backsplash. We replaced our island with light cabinets and new granite but left the outer cabinets and countertops and backsplash. Now we are trying to decide if we should also replace the black granite backsplash with a light tile or would this be a mistake to take down expensive granite? Are granite backsplashes still in style or are they dated?? Not sure it is worth several thousand dollars to take it down and put up tile.

Black granites are not the most current color choice, but the style of the cabinets you have fits well together, thereofre I wouldn't recommend changing the black granite backsplash.

The island looks out of place. I like the dark. You could lighten up area by adding a stainless hood rather than cherry wood.

Also replace pulls to brush nickel. That will help also. Use long ones. Not knobs. Even a brush nickel faucet.

Unless you can get a deal. I wouldn't pay thousands to demo then add new.

I agree with travis, the island looks like a separate kitchen.

If the granite backsplash is bothersome to you then consider applying tile to it without removing the granite. Look critically at where the granite abuts cabinets, window casing and sill, appliance clearances, exposed edges,etc. You will need to choose a tile series with bullnose tiles, borders or liners in order to deal with the above situations.
