backsplash with Uba Tuba counter & golden oak cabs
I just ordered my Uba Tuba granite to go with my existing golden oak cabinets. Not too popular a look around here, but I'm excited about the new look. (I now have bright blue formica! ACK!) I am stumped, however, on the tile backsplash. Most finished kitchens I can find have wood floors & white cabs. I have wood cabs & dove gray tile floor. I want something timeless; something that will not overpower the granite which will be the new star in the kitchen. I have been thinking of white/cream subway tile, tumbled marble or travertine. I think the subways are on the top of the list right now, but I'm not sure if shiny tile would be too much with the polished granite. Perhaps a matte finish would be better?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciate and pictures would be outstanding! Thanks!
