How can I choose a backsplash to go with my countertop?


I live near the coast of NJ so I am into coastal colors. Countertop picture is below, cabinets all white and paint is gray/beige. What is your advice on a backsplash? Thank You!

    Mirror or mirrored subway tiles... bring color in with accessories.

    Subway tile would look nice. Or a 1"x1" mosaic you get in the 1 foot sheets that is mostly neutral but brings in grey, or pops of color like some coastal blue.

    Hi, Maybe sand or pick a colour hat will allow you to have nice bright coloured accessories - Turquoise/Yellow/Green etc.......

    Since your countertop is a small scale pattern you need medium to large scale tile backsplash. Personally i would pick a solid color in a neutral tone or white. Maybe something that would pick up the color of the flooring?

    I think subway tiles in a cool aqua would look amazing!

    Sunway tile or mosaic tile.

    A frosted glass tile in a mosaic of colors you might find in sea glass (mostly clear and Coke bottle green with a few random splashes of beer bottle amber, wine bottle green, and cobalt blue here and there) would be quite stunning and would bring some of that coastal vibe you love without being overly beachy-themed.

    I have the same countertop. Don't you love it? I used glass subway tiles in a light blue-white
