I like the one on the left - the dark pieces in it nicely pull from your countertop. The one on the right feels busy...

I agree, the one on the right looks too busy.

I like the colors on the left, but I don't like the elongated rectangles. I would think that the rectangles will look dated in a few years. Is there any way to find the colors of the left sample in either a small square mosaic or in subway tile? Carolyn

Your counter looks almost exactly like mine (Caesarstone Smoky Ash). Although I didn't consider a mixed tile at the time, GWers steered me to a simple crackled subway. I hadn't thought my counter was the least bit busy, but now that I've lived with it for nearly a year, I'm very glad I picked a simple backsplash.

I like the one on the left. But, you might want to consider less contrast among the tiles in the backsplash. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen you may want something more peaceful?

Between those - the left one for sure - can you take a picture with the BS laying on the countertop
Thanks
