Help me find a backsplash

wvuchemistAugust 28, 2013


I need help finding a backsplash for my new kitchen. I am 26 year old bachelor. I love doing the work but have no sense of style. I have no idea what would match my counter and cabinets.

Any one have any suggestions for me. As much detail as possible (Etc link to website where I can buy backsplash)

Thanks for everyones help. I also want to pain the back wall so a paint color suggestion would be awesome as well with the backsplash.

Here is a close up of my counter.

I am also going to instal lights underneath my cabinets before I put that backsplash up.

Also around the cut out above the sink. would you only go up below the cabinet or would you put the backsplash all the way up and around it?

Hi There - What is the image in the top right corner? Also, what is your budget?

Regarding the sink cutout, It would be fine to stop the tile at cabinet height.

You have a lot of yellow-y browns in your images. Are the colors pretty accurate? If so, I would try to balance those warm tones out by choosing a crisp, cool beige with more grey than yellow, both for paint and for tile. The tiles below are from Glass Tile Oasis (link below).

crema marfil marble mosaic around $17/sf

porcelain bricks around $9/ 9" x 11" sheet

porcelain mini bricks around $9/sf

I like the paint colors featured by Farrow and Ball, but you can have them color matched into any brand of paint. You might like some of these:


Hardwick White
