How should I change up my backsplash?
I would like to make some changes to my kitchen. I have dark wood floors, yellow walls and white cabinets. Currently I have white backsplash and ugly green laminate countertops. I plan on changing my countertops to a wood counter and keep cabinets white. What should I do with my backsplash?

You can paint the backsplash or cover them with tile decals if you don't want to replace them.
I would put something that pops out...They sell beautiful glass tiles or just do white brick style on back
This is Linda. There are some many things you can do. I think it depends on what you like. You could keep it white to match your cabinets, use subway tile, glass tile, ceramic tile with or without a design, use shiplap, use faux stone or faux brick. When we did ours, we used a tan, off white, and light blue faux stone to go with what we already have. I personally think that yours would look nice with subway tile or shiplap but that's just me. I'd suggest a trip to one of the big box home goods stores to see what's available in your area. You can also look online, but that won't let you feel the texture. Once you narrow it down to a few different choices, you'll at least have a start to what you like. From there you can choose by your own criteria - cost, skills (if you're going to DIY), practicality, etc. Good luck! Wishing you the best.
Lots of choices but the tile and the walls need to coordinate.
If you're a careful cook who regularly wipes walls after cooking, a good kitchen paint will suffice.
You can change the color of the grout with Grout Refresh. White tiles with black grout is so classic. It is easy to do, has a sealer in it so the grout will not stain. I used it on bathroom floors years ago and it still looks good. Go to Maepi's site or Amazon for the best colors.
