At a lost for my new black kitchen...

moore627January 2, 2013
I recently painted my kitchen cabinets black - love them. The countertops are a white... what is a classic back splash for the walls.

What material are your countertops?

Here are some ideas that incorporate gray tones.

This might be ironic but this kitchen looks great with this back splash. I am amazed they don't like it.

I would stick with a white or a very light color or bright reflective surface for the backsplash as a contrast to the black cabinetry. But there are lots of options, from classic white subway tile to glass mosaic in whites and grays to stainless steel tiles, etc. It all depends on how modern or traditional your kitchen is and whether you want the backsplash to be the center of attention or to recede and let the granite take center stage. It also depends on how busy your granite is and what other colors are in it.

I would suggest a white backsplash or a piano key tile with light and dark. Not too much dark.

Recently saw a kitchen with black cabinets and white counters with green glass subway tiles - looked amazing. Imagine it could work with any color tile, given the neutral colors.

If you want a classic, timeless backsplash, then I would stick with a white porcelain subway tile. It matches with everything, and it is certainly a classic look. Just be sure to bring a countertop sample with you to match your whites properly, and then bring the tile sample home to see in your own lighting. Also, the marble subway tile in the above "Georgetown Townhouse" photo that 14thstreet posted is a great look as well (assuming that it matches your countertop selection).

I would put your favorite color there, the color that makes you smile and fell relaxed, you'll know it when you see it then buy it, put it up right away you can't go wrong, so relax and have fun hunting.
