We are going to put up new backsplash in our kitchen as we are planning to sell our house next year and are in the midst of several reno projeccts. We have dark cupboards and don't plan to paint them as they are new. We want to lighten up the kitchen with a different colour paint - currently it is a taupe colour. What backsplash - #1 or #2 or neither? My personal opinion is that tile #2 is nice but too dark with the dark cupboards.
I wouldn't mind suggestions for a nice lighter paint colour keeping in mind I'm not really into blue or greens.. thanks!
