3 Ideas for Matching Backsplashes to Kitchen Countertops, Anchorage, Alaska

When entering a cooking space, many people immediately notice the kitchen countertops and sink. That’s why it’s important to ensure your backsplash remains cohesive and helps create a stylish overall theme. If you’re getting ready to remodel your kitchen, here are a few tips for creating surfaces that complement each other.

How to Match Your Backsplash to the Kitchen Countertops

1. Use the Same Material

A cost-effective choice for people with leftover countertop slabs, this strategy gives your kitchen a minimal and sophisticated appearance. For a slightly less uniform look, use tiles in the same material instead of slabs.

2. Make One the Centerpiece

Alternatively, try pairing a statement countertop with tiles in neutral colors and vice versa. This allows one feature to shine while the other plays a supporting role. 

For example, you could emphasize a bold granite countertop with white ceramic tiles for the backsplash, or pair striking natural stone tiles with a neutral, white quartz countertop. 

3. Get Creative With Tiles

Give your kitchen a unique, eye-catching look by adding a pattern to the backsplash. Many homeowners enjoy creating checkerboard patterns with white and black ceramic tiles, for example. You could also use a variety of colors to add visual interest to this area. Colorful tiles pair well with neutral countertops, including those made of quartz and travertine.
