Back Splash Tile

Posted by Jo396 (My Page) on

Perplexing time, trying to choose backsplash, I would like 3 x 6 subway. Antique white cabinets, all bisque appliances and sink, Wilsonart Winter Carnival HD countertops, 20 X 20 light beige cream floor tile (which show's up more yellow than it is). Im afraid "biscuit" subway would be much of the same, but white being too much of a contrast. Best picture I could add to show the countertop.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated, we are on a limited budget also. Thank you.

A light taupe then?

RE: Back Splash Tile

Agree with ellendi...pick one of the tones from the counter..dark enough to contrast with the white cabinets but not too dark, with maybe an accent inset or strip of the darker tones to tie it together, but not necessary.

RE: Back Splash Tile

Hi. I posted on the general decorating forum about my backsplash install today. It was suggested that I post here since my granite has similar colors to your counter and I have white cabinets.

Here it is. I will post later when it is finished.

I really like cheryl's backsplash...very nice choice of grayish taupe. There are also some off-white subways but they might be moer expensive than the regular white.

RE: Back Splash Tile

Jo, I really like your counters and cabs. I think Cheryl's tile would also be a good choice for your kitchen. Best wishes!


RE: Back Splash Tile

Thanks all, I too like Cheryl's backsplash, especially since they are larger,appearing to be 4 X 12?? Have thought about going with a darker color from the countertop, will give it more thought. Our kitchen is not totally open to the rest of the house, so that may make it appear dark, and I prefer, bright, fresh and clean looking. Have almost settled on white, for the main reason, there is a slight contrast, and if our bisque appliances ever die, white is the "new" color.
