granite/backsplash ideas?

vegeSeptember 26, 2013

Hi all --

Newbie here. We are looking for some granite/backsplash ideas or inputs from the aficionados here.

Here a couple of pictures of our kitchen countertop/cabinet/island. We are planning on replacing the countertops and island by granite (and change the backsplash appropriately). As you can see from the island photo, we do have a very light colored (ivory?) floor tile and light doors throughout. The kitchen is well-light and is pretty bright.

Any ideas on the appropriate granite/backsplash combos?

Here are some which seemed appealing in the granite yards:

1. Tan Brown; 2. dakota mahogany; 3. Nambia gold; 4. Super Bordeaux; 5. Golden oak; 6. Cabernet Bordeaux; 7. Super Bordeaux

However, we are imagination-challenged people to visualize the correct combos of dark-light which will work.

Thanks in advance for any and all input.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Remove one of your cabinet doors and if you have leftover floor tile, take both with you when you shop for granite--it's the only way to know which will go best with your cabinets.
