One of the biggest challenges in any kitchen design or remodeling project is harmonizing the kitchen backsplash with the countertop. The right balance can make your kitchen shine, while a mismatch can create an uninspired look.

Professional Tips for Matching Your Kitchen Backsplash with Your Countertop

In order to make an exceptional choice, here are a few professional tips on matching these two focal points of your kitchen:

  • Start with the Countertop. We advise that you begin with the countertop design before getting to the kitchen backsplash. This is because countertops are easier to choose; in many cases, their design boils down to your preference. So, use your choice of countertop material to set the tone for your kitchen backsplash design.
  • Color Matching. There’s a never-ending debate between mixing or matching kitchen backsplashes with countertop surfaces. We believe either choice is fine, but there are some rules. If you’re matching, use neutral colors like white. Alternatively, the backsplash tiles should be neutral if you have a busy countertop material. This contrast will add visual interest to your kitchen backsplash.
  • Mixing Materials. The same case applies when selecting materials for your kitchen backsplash and countertop. Use materials with a similar appearance for a more uniform appeal. However, if that sounds too bland for your liking, you may choose a different tile material for your backsplash, provided it doesn’t seem out of place.
  • Matching Patterns. It’s always a good idea to play with patterns. This will add some pomp to your kitchen and complement your focal points exceptionally well. Just be sure not to overdo it, as this may overwhelm your kitchen.
