Backsplash Ideas for Your Granite Countertops

Granite is known for its durability, easy maintenance, and stunning beauty. That’s why it’s often one of the most popular countertop options. However, the one fault of having a granite countertop is that it’s often difficult picking out a backsplash to match. That’s where we step in!


Each granite piece has its own unique colors and subtle designs, which can make choosing a backsplash challenging. Here are some great design approaches you can take while selecting your backsplash:


Staying Simple is Always Best

When selecting a kitchen backsplash, you’ll soon realize that you have plenty of options to choose from. That’s why it’s always best, and less stressful, to choose a simple option such as traditional white or another neutral-colored tile. Plus, sticking with neutral colors makes it easier for you to change your kitchen décor while still having it match your granite countertops and kitchen backsplashes.


As a tip, if your granite countertop is a warmer tone, you should continue to use warmer-toned tiles in your backsplash. This will help bring the colors in your kitchen together.


Matching Your Backsplash to Your Countertop

If you love your granite countertop, one option for your backsplash is to carry it up the wall! By matching your backsplash to your countertop, it creates a clean and uniform look in your kitchen. However, depending on the pattern of your countertop, this method can sometimes look overwhelming.


If you don’t want to use granite as part of your backsplash, but you still want to create uniformity in your kitchen, you can pull out a color or hue in your granite countertop and match it to the tile you like for your backsplash!


Glass Tiles Complement Granite Countertops

Are you looking to add some shine to your backsplash? Consider using glass tiles to compliment your granite countertops. Glass tiles pair well with your granite countertops because they are glossy, just like granite! There is often a wide selection of glass tile backsplash options to choose from, so you can choose ones that also coordinate with your granite’s color.
