Help me with colors for backsplash…need pictures.?

Due to some water damage we have had to completely re-do our kitchen. I made some decisions based on the fact that our floors, which were all white ceramic tile were not going to have to be replaced. Our kitchen is VERY small. Probably around 10 x 11. So, with the white floors I didn’t want dark cabinets b/c I was afraid that it would make the room look smaller. So, I decided on some cabinets that were sage green. I got a contemporary looking cabinet face with brushed nickel pulls. We are getting stainless appliances. I am going to get a charcoal/blackish tile countertop. The tiles are 12 x 12 and look really nice with a dark grout. I really could care less about granite and really can’t afford it anyway. They ended up having to replace my floors after I had already ordered the green cabinets. So, I got white with just a hint of marbled gray in there. I have read that dark countertops with white floors are really in right now and I think it will look really sharp. I want to do a nice backsplash…was considering just getting white subway tiles. I am trying to tie together the colors of the kitchen together with the backsplash. So, I have white, dark grey/black and sage green. I was thinking of using the white subway tiles with some small green glass pieces mixed in. Does anyone have any thoughts or pictures they can share that will help me. It’s so hard to visualize this stuff without having seen it first. I am so bad at this. Thanks!

  1. I have worked on many backsplashes and tile projects using the colors you are considering, but not all together. You can view some photos at , and the stainless sounds good with green. As for white tile, that is what everyone replaces. I pull out white tile backsplashes, never add. You should consider a natural stone, slate, or glass tile. Good luck with your remodel, and have fun choosing the colors. Also try – they should have a design system so you can try a virtual design on their website
