    I don't have a suggestion for the material, just a comment.

    I have seen a lot of small kitchens lately with eye-catching backsplashes. It is possible to try too hard and do so much in a small space that it becomes unsettling. Everything in the space is fighting for your attention. With the beautiful materials you have chosen for your kitchen, my choice would be for a backsplash that does not vie for attention with everything else.

    I think a nice glass tile that is mostly neutral with some small splashes of color would look great.

    So much available at Lowe's or Home Depot. Kitchen looks beautiful and it would certainly add to the beauty!

    I bought my house two years ago and have always wanted a "beachy" theme. I wanted specific colors and wood; reclaimed wood or driftwood. The kitchen was pretty plain, but having just bought the place, my budget was pretty tight.

    , This is a before picture that shows what was there and the start of the reclaimed wood back splash, This is how it looks now The back splash is a textured vinyl coated self stick wall paper Natural Vintage Khaki Wood Panel Pattern Contact Paper Self adhesive Peel stick that I applied sideways It actually feels like real wood and because it s vinyl coated keeping it clean is easy The granite counter is Instant Granite in gold and you can actually put hot dishes on it I think up to 180 degrees F I got both from Amazon The back splash paper cost 29 a roll and the instant granite 80 a roll Eventually I ll try to get real wood if I can find the same colors for the back splash and a real granite counter top but for now these sereve the purpose and look great Hope this has given you some ideas

    Well said. It's about balance and considering how each design element works within the whole. A backsplash which attracts no attention could be thought of as sacrificing for the greater good.

    I used a copper colored paint so the backsplash didn't clash with the countertop
