What to use for a backsplash with a granite countertop?
I am planning on giallo ornamental granite for my 6' long vanity countertop. It's not a really busy granite, that is why I chose it. I am putting in a light beige tile for floor and tub/shower surround. In my tub/shower I want to use a 3" border of 1"x1" tiles about eye level, also differnt shades of grays and beige/browns that go well with the other tile. I'm sorry I do not have photos to show.
My quesiton is; can I use that same 1x1 small tile and do a backplash of 4" inches high,which would be 4 rows?
Or do I need to make the granite backplash the same as what the countertop will be? I feel the colors look good together, but not sure if it will either be too busy or should you just stay with the same backplash as countertop.
What do most of you have for your countertop backplash?
