It’s important to choose a backsplash that matches your countertops but still provides plenty of contrast. Keep reading for tips and tricks on finding the perfect fit and creating a cohesive and beautiful kitchen design.
Decide On Your Style
The backsplash you choose should fit your style and personality. Ask yourself what design or aesthetic you’re going for.
Are you planning a country-style kitchen or something more modern? Do you want a basic, minimalist look or a dramatic statement piece?
A solid-colored backsplash paired with an accent tile or medallion provides a unique mix of clean lines and eye-catching detail. Star and floral-shaped tiles are ideal for modern kitchens, while a lion’s head shape gives more of an antique vibe.
Consider Your Countertops
Before you can match your backsplash to your countertop, you need to give it a good once-over. If you love the look and material of your countertops, you already have a good foundation for choosing a complementary backsplash.
You can also use this opportunity to upgrade your countertops. Some of the most durable and appealing materials included quartz, marble, soapstone, and onyx. Gorgeous custom countertops can help guide you toward the perfect backsplash.
Solid countertops pair nicely with more sophisticated and up-scale backsplash designs. If you prefer a minimalist countertop, add some personality with a backsplash that contains plenty of colors, geometric shapes, and patterns. Stained and swirling glass tiles are two more impressive options to consider.
Choose a Color Scheme
The most common kitchen color schemes feature browns, grays, whites, and blacks. The color of your backsplash should complement your countertops, not clash with them.
Neutral-colored countertops easily pair with white or gray tile. Accent tiles can pick up other colors from your marble or quartz countertops including specks of black or swirls and shades of brown.
Some countertops boast undertones of blues and yellow which work well with a more colorful backsplash design.
