Kitchen backsplash

aaudinoJanuary 20, 2013
What color and style of backsplash should I install in a modern kitchen with blizzard white ceasarstone counters, white gloss upper cabinets and dark wood lower cabinets?

If you want to make it look vibrant than go for RED and GRey color mix
you want to keep it simple than go for Blue and Grey mix

This kitchen with the same counter top installed what looks like the same material in tiles for the black splash:

A mirror backsplash would look great, but check to see if you need something behind the stove. Seehttp://www.houzz.com/photos/8837/MEA---Sausalito-Residence-modern-kitchen-san-francisco From this picture it looks like it is OK:

. It must be a certain type of glass to withstand the heat. Close up, notice mirrored switch plates - a must:

My last suggestion is do a color you love:

Depends on what you want for your finished look.. I think grey horizontal tiles would look great

If you want to play it safe color-wise and look great...how about a stainless steel subway tile? Here's one with subway, and smooth stainless behind the stove.

If you wanted to stay with something sleek and seamless you could try back-painted glass. Note - I'm not suggesting this color, just the idea of the material.

I've had the tile in the bathroom photo marked for a while too. I'm not sure what it is but if you look at the questions attached to it, a lot of people have made suggestions.

I love dimensional tile. Consider tile by Daniel Ogassian: http://www.ogassian.com/

I am using this stick glass tile in my new house kitchen; looks like it could work for you nicely. There are different color ways, some are thinner than others, some are shinier than others (glass vs. stone sticks). You can even turn them to run vertically behind your cooktop for an accent. Research and pick a nice complement to your style. Subway tiles are so boring. Good luck
