I’ve had this countertop for two years and I can’t seem to pick a backsplash to go with it! My husband thinks a dark backsplash and I’m tending to go more with a light Perl glass subway tile. I love this countertop but it’s very bossy and our cabinets and floors are clear natural maple With stainless steel appliances and cabinet handles so the cabinets are already pulling the gold big time



any advice would be so much appreciated!

You should go lighter to compliment the counter top. Try to pick out the lightest color from the granite and do a subway tile to match.
