If you’re like most of our clients, your kitchen remodel is something you’ve been yearning for and dreaming about for years. You’re ready to have the kitchen of your dreams and you want nothing but the best. That’s why many homeowners love deluxe quartz and granite countertops.
So if you choose the deluxe countertop material, you need to pair it with an equally standout backsplash. These are our picks for the best backsplash for quartz and granite countertops:
Subway tile: Bring home the world’s most popular backsplash pattern. White subway tile is the luxury backsplash design homeowners everywhere want to know more about. This clean and modern pattern matches well with the cool feel of a solid surface counter. The neutral colors of a subway tile backsplash can bring added emphasis to a bold, colorful pattern in your countertop.
Match the material: The best backsplash for a quartz or granite countertop is often just that – quartz or granite! After all, you fell in love with this material and look for a reason, so maximize its use in your kitchen by making it your backsplash. By using the countertop stone as a backsplash in conjunction with your countertop, you can highlight it by giving it even more area to shine. In addition, by using quartz or granite as a backsplash, you’ll bring the pattern to eye level.
Glass tile: This backsplash is a modern marvel. More and more, luxury backsplash designs are pairing distinct, translucent glass tiles with a striking quartz or granite countertop. This creates both a colorful and highly unique feel to your kitchen decor. A glass backsplash might not be for everyone, but if you have a modern eye, this is a combo to consider.
Geometric tile: While the even look of subway tiles may be the most popular backsplash right now, different geometric shapes can make a dramatic impact in your kitchen. Whether you want a simple shape like hexagons or a more complicated pattern like diagonal herringbone, you’ll find that geometric tiles accentuate the deep hues of a solid surface countertop.
Statement tiles: Sometimes the best backsplash for granite or quartz countertops is one that makes a statement. Some designers choose tiles with a colorful pattern that tie in elements of your paint or the countertop itself. On the other hand, a few splashes of color can be used to guide your visitors’ eyes around the kitchen itself. In addition, adding a single mosaic pattern – often above the range – creates another strong focal point.
As you can see, luxury backsplash design has ample room for personal style — and we’re just scratching the surface! One of the best ways to make this decision is to see the patterns in-person — that’s why we recommend visiting our showroom.
