please help me decide before I go nuts
I am driving myself nuts with countertop and backsplash materials. I could go with two different looks and can't make up my mind which direction to go,
Choice 1: I found a glass backsplash that is the only glass tile that has ever sparkled in my house due to the lighting. It is Vihara puka. The drawback is that it could look a bit busy over a large area (I will be going all the way to the ceiling behind the range). It could also look dated in a few years,
Choice 2: I could do the backsplash in marble which is a timeless look and allows for any paint color.
I'm leaning towards waiting for the counters to be in before deciding. I looked around for counters that would go with both looks and picked the Silestone Steel color.
Found out this morning that the price for that is pretty steep, about $1000 more than a quote I got for bianco river a while back. Now I'm thinking I should go with a different counter. Does anyone have a lighter counter with a marble backsplash? What quartz goes with marble?
Here is the first picture that shows the glass tile, the blue/gray paint sample behind it and a creamy cabinet sample on the right and a whiter paint sample for cabinets on the left. The creamy cabinet is too creamy for marble.
