HELP! Need suggestions on back splash for new counters - see pics!
January 30, 2014
Hi everyone! We are putting in a new kitchen in our home, images attached. The counter material is a granite called Copenhagen. The cabinets are cherry. All the appliances will be stainless steel (note that stove top has not been cut from the granite yet). The floor will be a polished marble called Diana Royale. We are having a hard time coming up with a design and material to use as back splash. We will tile up to the bottom of the wall cabinets. I'm not a fan of tumbled stone and that's what I see used with most with complex granite here. We have tried samples of different materials but have not come up with anything quite ideal. Copenhagen is very crystalline (in fact I think it might be a quartzite, not a granite) and has lots of light play. Any suggestions will be IMMENSELY appreciated! Thank you!
