Countertop and Backsplash Ideas for your Kitchen Remodel

Of course a kitchen remodel can offer you a new feel and sense of pride with your home.  Selecting your countertops and backsplash with a sense of style can really set the room apart. 

Be Open Minded to the Endless Opportunities

The sheer volume of selections can be intimidating for both the countertops and the backsplash tile.  Trying to mix and match colors and patterns adds another layer of confusion.  The combinations can overwhelm many.  You need to approach this selection process not from a unnerving perception, but rather as one of the most exciting opportunities to make your kitchen remodel be a focal attraction to your home for a long time. 

Kitchen remodeling can take many weeks to months to complete depending on the scope and materials.  You can enjoy seeing your dreams coming true by understanding all the options available for kitchen countertops and backsplash.

While the opening image above provides a clean appeal, notice how the quartz countertops contrast with the ceramic tile backsplash, that goes all the way up to ceiling.

Color and Contrast Provide Style

Sometimes we want the back to be soft and other times we want it to be bold.  We need to take into consideration the size of the room, the colors and patterns of the cabinets and countertops, as well as even the appliances.  In this next example we have neutral oversized subway tile that is married perfectly to the clean Taj Mahal Quartzite countertops.  The combined stainless steel appliances and soft wood tone cabinetry blends so well with the countertops and backsplash.

When the Backsplash is Loud

There are times where you want the backsplash to be the focal point.  The entire kitchen can offer a solid clean look matched with beautiful herringbone multicolored backsplash and rose gold accents.  While the room may not be too large, it doesn’t take much of a glance to see the backsplash getting all the attention.

Countertops can be the Focal Point

There are just so many options to consider so you want to aware of your budget to meet your tastes.  Of course you do not want to set such an unreasonable budget that you are not able to get the first level of quality in your selections.  We like the analogy of looking for a rope bracelet for a loved one.  The same exact style can be purchased in silver, titanium and gold.  And simply selecting gold does not stop there since you can get gold plated, 14K gold or 18K gold.  The decisions on these permutations of a bracelet are the same when it comes to selecting Kitchen Countertops and Kitchen Backsplash.  The look may be similar, but the quality is different.   Simply remembering this will allow you to better focus on your dreams matching your investment dollars.

In this design we chose to go with a contrast of black and white to highlight the midtones of the grey veins in the center Cambria quartz countertop along with the marbling white in the herring bone tile back splash.  It can take a moment to decide which items draw your attention, whether it is the island countertop, the side countertops or the backsplash.  Each blends perfect to their surroundings.

Solids and Patterns

Unfortunately there is just too many considerations to cover every possibility here.  Sometimes people prefer solids for the cleaner look it provides.  In this beautiful two tone cabinetry kitchen we went with a more mute countertop to accentuate the cabinetry and backsplash.  Or perhaps it is the patterned backsplash above the stove that is accentuating the rest of the kitchen?  We will leave that up to you to decide.

Color Choice Mix and Match can be Overwhelming

Just when you have your budget in order, and idea of material type and style type you like, you can then be met with the mountain of color options to consider.  In some cases you may easily think of a light color or dark color, but there can be more to it when deciding on the design of your current and future kitchen.   You want your countertop and backsplash choices to bring out the best of your room and not having a trained eye to guide you may lose the opportunity to select one or more colors wisely.
