Need help with kitchen backsplash and room color

annduncanJanuary 27, 2013
We are in the process of renovating our kitchen. Our granite was just installed and we are having a difficult time coming up with a back splash that compliments, yet doesn't take away from the granite. Also possible wall paint colors that would compliment all. Thanks for any help!

keep your backsplash plain...you have a busy granite and you want that to be the focus. Maybe a plain off white subway tile???

I agree something plain, but do you think pulling in a small strip of glass with the plain tile would be over the top? I'm thinking something like this "origins glass" http://www.crossvilleinc.com/residential/gallery/kitchens#

a glass tile would be nice ... I think i would just keep it all one tile and not add any pattern to distract from your really nice granite

Tan glass tiles, and if that back edge isn't one piece, I would take it off, and bring the glass tiles all the way down to the counter.

Here are a couple tile ideas, on either I would use a grout similar color to the actual tile so it doesn't look busy with your beautiful countertops. Also here is a link for a paint color that would look great too! .... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Subway-Marble-Glass-Blend-Mosaic-Tile-Backsplash-Kitchen-Bathroom-MBG802-5-pcs-/120974315502?pt=Tile_Flooring&hash=item1c2aa18fee http://www.glasstileoasis.com/p-13104-Tan-sold-by-the-box-Cream-Beige-Glossy-Glass http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/morningdew

Cream tumbled travertine with copper tile inserts to match your wonderful sink. Travertine i would stick to larger size so it is less busy .
