Redesigning a kitchen can not only be daunting, but confusing. You’ll start noticing that there are so many options out there, and that a lot of these options clash. When working with natural stone and tiles, you’ll find there are a lot of different patterns, and some may not work well together. Is it okay to mix patterns? Which colors go together? Which should I pick first?
There is no right or wrong answer, but here are a few good ideas to help you get started.
The best first step, is to just “pick one”. I prefer starting out with counters, because they have a bigger surface area. Plus, when it comes to materials, choosing the material that best fits your needs, is important. Since backsplashes are more so an accent, they an be secondary.
Once you’ve done research on material that best fits your needs, next, is finding a backsplash that compliments. There are many options here. The easiest and quickest option is to just use the same material you chose for your counters. This doesn’t work well with every material, but it does work well with some! If your countertops are neutral, you can have fun with almost any type of backsplash on the market. From fun colors, to more traditional styles, the possibilities are endless.
This doesn’t mean you can’t mix colors. If both of your materials feature multiple hues and have different patterns, it may clash, so try to stick to one main color palette for each material. This will keep it looking more uniform, without the two materials butting heads.
Last but not least, if you still aren’t sure, there is no shame in hiring an expert and getting a consultant. Cabinet Cures has many professionals who are more than happy to help you on your kitchen remodeling/redesigning journey.
