To compliment your gorgeous floor tiles we would like to suggest the use of glass tiles for your back splash. These would enhance the natural light coming into your beautiful kitchen. You could go with a neutral field tile and accent with a color to tie in with your floors. This can be achieved by using anyone of our 37+ standard formats or 15+ Architectural assemblies, giving you a truly custom experience just for you. Please feel free to visit our site for countless ideas and options available, to make this a truly unique experience just for you. Wishing you a sparkling day.

Agreed on the glass tile. To compliment the existing floors, I love the idea of a grey wall with River White granite and a 2x8 or 3x6 glass tile backsplash (brick pattern) in a light grey tone. Here are a few photos to give you a visual:

A slightly darker gray would be ideal for the countertop.

Greetings! You have a very clean aesthetic in your kitchen with the square lines and warm honey tones and cool tone floor tile. I think you are taking the right course by thinking of grey walls which will tie the floor tile back into the room. For countertops, I would suggest you keep that same palette in mind. Many of the quartz countertop manufacturer's have a concrete toned offering. DalTile One Quartz has a "stormy sky" that is grey with a honey undertone that would look lovely. For granite, you really need to look at a stoneyard to assess the variety that is inherent in a natural material. Some options to consider might be Blue Flowers or Winter Frost as seen here courtesy of Terrazzo & Marble.

Here is a link to Silestone Quartz- you can check out all the various colors/patterns. No need to seal quartz every year like you have to with granite. You could do quartz on the counters and the smaller raised bar height piece could be a "eye catching" piece of granite for a bit of variety.
You have a very modern looking cabinets so I would go with a full tile backsplash (counter up to bottom of the cabinets)- not a 4 or 5 inch backsplash like pictured above. Subway tile is nice and classic and will stand the test of time- I would shy away from those small rectangular tiles everyone is using lately- it is a very dated look. You have a lovely kitchen and I think light gray paint would work nicely.

Based on all your suggestions i have picked 4 quartz stones for my countertop. I like the first one very much.. I think it goes well with the cabinet color and floor tiles. I believe it will look good with soft grey glass tiles.

They all look nice- it's so hard to choose isn't it?
