White and walnut kitchen

White upper cabinets give the kitchen an open feel while the bottom walnut cabinets ground it.

I am having cambria shirebrook countertops put in my kitchen this week - I am having a hard time picking a backsplash to go with the countertops. I am painting my fruitwood oak cabinets cream colored with a glaze. I also need help picking out a paint color for my kitchen. I recently put in a bay window over my kitchen sink so there is plenty of light in the kitchen. The countertops aren't as colorful as I would like so I would like to get some color in my kitchen. Please help. Thank you!

Patty, thank you for your question. Cambria is a wonderful product and the color you picked is very pretty. It's really hard to make a recommendation, however, without seeing the whole picture (floors, lighting, chairs, etc.) and knowing what you like... There are so many options with tile: from classic subway tile to glass, metal and natural stone in numerous shapes and colors. I would recommend contacting a local design firm for assistance. If you are in the Twin Cities area, please feel free to contact us at

backslpash and Cambria counters - beautiful kitchen :) I recently finished spray painting my upper cabinets antique white and will be replacing my lower cabinets with Walnut, so this caught my attention :) Looking to choose a Cambria counter for just our lower cabinets and a similar backsplash but without the design. Do you remember which backsplash and counter name was used?

The beauty of Cambria is that it's easy to maintain, it doesn't scratch or stain and yet it is still a natural product. Thank you for your comment, diyher, you are absolutely correct about the cleaning method. If you prefer a truly natural stone, such as marble, you just have to accept that it will have some imperfections and patina over time. Really, a personal preference. Thank you, everyone, for your questions!

The lower portion is a standard counter height, 36", and 24" deep; the bar is 42" high (standard bar height), 18" deep at the widest point. Thank you and good luck with your project!
