I am having cabinets made in golden oak stain with mingled black counter tops that have some beige in them. What style and color back splash would I want. I am thinking should kind of match new floor that I havent picked out yet.

Well it somewhat depends on the overall look you are going for, is it traditional, transitional, rustic, etc? Also are you considering tile for your flooring, or were going with wood or another product (as that could make a difference on the tile that you pick)? You could use your backsplash to add a bit of color to your kitchen, or you could keep fairly neutral like the picture shown above. It sounds like with the golden oak stain, it might be good to go with a color that is slightly darker than your cabinets for the flooring, and then keep the backsplash a mid to light tone to balance out the dark countertops on light cabinetry.

Exactly what I was thinking. We are going to put the floor down and it is going to be the interlocking squares so I can pick any color I want and was thinking of picking up some different shades of beige. The back splash would probably look good with the same shades of beige in it. I like the backsplashes that appear to be diamond shaped with maybe an occasional small black one here and there. How does that sound?
