Usually, a natural stone countertop need to be matched with a backsplash from smilar material. The purpose of backsplash is wall protection against splashes resulted during food preparation, therefore it is essential to choose a durable and easy to clean material. Apart from this, backsplashes are supposed to match the wall cladding and also the general line of design. If you have a natural stone countertop, it is natural to choose a matching material for backsplash, but this is not always possible or desired. Here are some tips you could use:

 

1. Granite countertop and backsplash

Granite is the usual material of choice for modern kitchen countertops, thanks to its durability and the special color variation of slabs. Extending the countertop finish on the wall unifies the style, providing a compact image of the kitchen. When this natural compatibility involves the flooring, then everything look consistent and balanced, you are overwhelmed by the nice proportions and the obtained intimacy comes as a blessing.

 

2. Travertine backsplash

Should you consider dull the combination granite countertop – granite backsplash, we recommended using a travertine backsplash for constrast. The color variation of travertine, quiet and relaxed will offset granite, regarded as more resolute. The combination of different colors and textures conveys an optimistic and non-conformist style into your kitchen, which is standard for modern kitchens.

 

3. Subway tiles backsplash

Regardless of countertop’s material and its color, the secret is a subway tile backsplash, same size and complementary colors. The "subway" style, suitable for modern kitchen decoration projects displays a careful layout of tiles, which should be from the same material as the countertop and same finish. Backsplash tiles are installed with small joints and running bond pattern, making sure tiles will not overlap, everything in a practical and balanced way.

 

4. Marble backsplash

This backsplash underlines the beauty and distinction of marble, shifting focus from pragmatic side into the aesthetic side, because the eye distinguishes the differences and certifies design’s ability to impress. The sensational touch is conveyed by wall claddings with translucent marble, which, even when rejecting the classic image of backsplash in terms of absolute functionality, with elegance and style will define a new, daring and innovative concept, equally compatible with both modern and classic kitchen decoration projects.

 

5. Mosaic backsplash

It is obvious that mosaic is a type of cladding which conveys a special aesthetics to your kitchen. With low weight and avoiding walls overloading, it is easy to install and available in many models with different finishes. Polished mosaic has the benefit of easier aftercare, however other types of finishes (tumbled, honed, chiseled etc.) are also easy to clean. Produced from slate, travertine, onyx or marble, the mosaics will definitely improve the appearance of your kitchen. A special type of beauty is displayed by pebble stone mosaic which is more cheerful. PIATRAONLINE recommends mosaic claddings, especially with polished finish, due to appearance and easy aftercare. 

 

6. SKIN flexible slate blacksplash

SKIN flexible slate backsplash is a novelty in this field. Using this type of backsplash has important benefits such as easy installation and the fact that it will not overload the wall.  Flexible slate is available in a wide range of beautiful colors, for satisfying all kinds of taste. Moreover, overall costs are affordable, hence its popularity.

 

Every type of backsplash gets dirty while using the countertop, therefore cleaning with professional detergents is necessary, besides surface sealing for protection against water and stains. We always recommend the aftercare of your natural stone products (countertop and backsplash) with specially designed solutions for natural stone. For extending the lifetime of your products, aftercare is necessary on a regular basis.
