Backsplashes are surfaces that protect your paintwork. Many people install them behind their oven or near the sink. In this article, we’ve compiled a few ideas regarding backsplashes for your granite countertops.
The best way to make your granite countertops stand out is by choosing a backsplash on the neutral side—and one of the best neutral choices are white subway tiles. They provide a universal look that gives off a sleek and modern appearance, calming down the sometimes busy patterns that come with granite countertops.
Subway tiles are easy to wipe down and clean, and most come in a pretty shade of white that encourages the presence of natural light in your kitchen. The plain tile also helps your granite countertops act as the centerpiece of the room—which is exactly what you want!
Subway tiles are affordable, widely available, and easy to install. While they might not be the most unique choice for a backsplash, they are quite classic.
Moroccan tiles are a great choice that will stand out in your kitchen. They’re bold and bring a sense of warmth with them. You might think that they clash with granite countertops—and that is possible. But it’s just the right amount of contrast that makes them stand out.
Using this type of backsplash is a great way to encourage color in your kitchen. Even if you choose a Moroccan tile with a plain white or cream base, you can find ones with subtle patterns that catch the eye and make the room interesting.
If you’re not ready to commit to every tile having a pattern, you can always choose to place a Moroccan tile at every second or third tile and keep the rest plain.
The color that these tiles provide makes your kitchen feel friendlier and more inviting, and they’re also a great way to express your personality! If unique is what you’re looking for, this is a wonderful choice.
Glass tiles create a smooth finish and help the room feel bright and open. Because they range from colorful to transparent, it’s easy to find glass tiles that bring out the beauty in your kitchen.
They are used to make granite countertops stand out, serving as a backdrop for the statement piece in your kitchen. People also love glass tiles because they’re stain resistant and come in all sorts of sizes and ranges of thickness.
Adding a marble backsplash is the perfect way to create an air of elegance for your kitchen. Because marble and granite are both natural stones, pairing them in such close proximity will give your space an earthy feel, one that allows you to be more connected to natural materials.
If you decide to go with a marble backsplash, it’s better to choose a muted granite slab. If you choose two busy patterns, it can overwhelm even the largest kitchen.
