Determining the scope, materials, and design for your kitchen
There are few rooms that people in Nashville love like their kitchens. To create a truly remarkable kitchen, where you friends and family enjoy hanging out, you need more than just a big fridge stocked with cold adult beverages.
A central design element of any kitchen is the backsplash, especially one which is perfectly paired with a memorable kitchen countertop.
That perfect matching of kitchen countertop with backsplash
Most kitchens start with the kitchen countertop and build out from there. How you build a backsplash around a kitchen countertop comes down to what sort of material you have chosen.
For a marble, quartz and granite countertop, try picking one color out of the stone that you like. Now find tiles which are shades of this color to create intricate designs. Find the paint that completes the look and you’ll have a striking monochromatic kitchen.
Modern kitchen countertops paired with stainless steel backsplashes
Modern kitchens are becoming increasingly popular, especially those with a touch of industrial design. To get this look, try pairing a dark quartz countertop, such as our own Dinux, with a stainless steel backdrop. For bonus points, make sure that it has the same look as your fixtures.
Another option in the stone and metal vein includes using hammered stainless steel. This tends to skew the overall design more towards industrial than modern, but there’s no denying that it creates an interesting backdrop/countertop combination.
Contrasting dark kitchen countertops with white marble tile backdrops
People love to see marble in kitchens. A problem that some people have with marble is that it stains slightly easier than other stone kitchen countertop materials. So why not choose a dark kitchen countertop, like our Absolute Black granite, and pair it with a white marble backsplash?
This design is common for those who want to really highlight their marble. Some lighting that is recessed into the cabinets over the marble backsplash can add even further highlights to the details in your marble backsplash.
