Kitchen is almost complete but now to figure out what color tile would work best with Mombasa granite. If anyone has used Mombasa in their home I would greatly appreciate any input you could give me. Mombasa is beautiful and has a great deal of movement. Ours is basically the creams, greys,blacks and some browns and some golden colors....really striking. The cabinets are soft cream with a cocoa glaze..island is a warm brown glazed maple. Finding tile is gonna be a tough one. Thanks in advance...

I think if you are able to upload pics of your kitchen or even your granite, it would help us to visualize what would look great in your kitchen.

A popular look is to go with a cream tile. Maybe do an accent tile in one of the darker colors from the granite.

Thank you ..We are thinking about a very simple tile and something more neutral or like ellendi stated...pick one color for an accent. We have to watch not to get too busy because the granite has much movement and our floor is a travertine look. We've seen some W. Zanger granite that we really like....gotta go to the tile store and get some ideas...
Gotta post pics....

Is there any chance you could post photos of the granite against your cream cabinets? I also have cream cabinets and may get mombasa. Mostly I'm wondering how much yellow shows up because I'd like to minimize that color. Thanks.

if you'd rather email I have the same ID on
