Backsplash help please
I need help deciding on my backsplash for my newly renovated kitchen. The house is a 1960s ranch style and my style is fairly contemporary. Clean lines, straight edges, minimalist. The cabinets are a simple shaker style in medium cherry brown with a light gray quartz countertop and SS appliances.
The countertop has a few flecks of pattern to it, but it's basically just a solid gray with no movement or veins like in granite. There is a lot of light in the kitchen with it open to the family room as well as an entire wall of windows on one side of it.
I want a contemporary look, but nothing too trendy. I don't want something that will be outdated in a few years. I have already tried to make choices that will allow this kitchen to not look out of date for many years, with fairly simple and neutral choices. I have a stack stone fireplace in a neighboring room, and this kitchen looks out to the backyard where I have a stone retaining wall and a lot of natural foliage.
So... I would love to get backsplash ideas from you. I have considered glass, natural stone and ceramic tiles. I want something that will go with the style and colors of the cabinets and counters as well something that will stand the test of time. I have a few samples of some glass mosaics as well as some natural stone, but I can't figure out how to upload more than one photo. So maybe I will post them in a separate post?
All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks
