Backsplash to match Niagara Gold granite Countertop

a_ree's picture

I love, love, love my countertop - it's Niagara Gold granite which has a beautiful veining and colour with absolutely no pattern or uniformity.  One length of the countertop is about 15' long, and then there are two smaller sections on either side of the stove.  Our floors are 18 x 18 Florence porcelain tiles, set on a diagonal.  The cabinetry is dark wood, with a mahogany undertone.  And now the backsplash...   We're leaning towards a 1x0.5 Crema Marfil, but aren't convinced.   Any suggestions, for the colour and a pattern?Niagara Gold Granite - Florence Tile    CountertopCountertopFlorence TileFlorence Tile Our Kitchen...Our countertopOur countertopOur Countertop 2Our Countertop 2

Have you tried anywhere online. Susan Jablon Mosaics offers free samples of custom tile designs and some other sites online may also. Crema may look good with the dark cabinetry. Maybe glass subway tile in a cream color?? I dont know? thats going to be a beautiful kitchen regardless.

Hello a_ree,

Because your countertops are a detailed marble, I would stick to a simple tiled backsplash in white or a warm grey. I personally love 3" x 6" subway tiles. For more on backsplashes, check out these videos/articles:

I hope those help!
