Picking a Backsplash for Granite & Quartz Countertops

If you’re like most of our clients, your kitchen remodel is something you’ve been yearning for and dreaming about for years. You’re ready to have the kitchen of your dreams and you want nothing but the best. That’s why many homeowners love deluxe quartz and granite countertops.

We compare laminate vs quartz countertops.

So if you choose the deluxe countertop material, you need to pair it with an equally standout backsplash. These are our picks for the best backsplash for quartz and granite countertops:

  • Subway tile: Bring home the world’s most popular backsplash pattern. White subway tile is the luxury backsplash design homeowners everywhere want to know more about. This clean and modern pattern matches well with the cool feel of a solid surface counter. The neutral colors of a subway tile backsplash can bring added emphasis to a bold, colorful pattern in your countertop.

  • Match the material: The best backsplash for a quartz or granite countertop is often just that – quartz or granite! After all, you fell in love with this material and look for a reason, so maximize its use in your kitchen by making it your backsplash. By using the countertop stone as a backsplash in conjunction with your countertop, you can highlight it by giving it even more area to shine. In addition, by using quartz or granite as a backsplash, you’ll bring the pattern to eye level.

  • Glass tile: This backsplash is a modern marvel. More and more, luxury backsplash designs are pairing distinct, translucent glass tiles with a striking quartz or granite countertop. This creates both a colorful and highly unique feel to your kitchen decor. A glass backsplash might not be for everyone, but if you have a modern eye, this is a combo to consider.

  • Geometric tile: While the even look of subway tiles may be the most popular backsplash right now, different geometric shapes can make a dramatic impact in your kitchen. Whether you want a simple shape like hexagons or a more complicated pattern like diagonal herringbone, you’ll find that geometric tiles accentuate the deep hues of a solid surface countertop.

  • Statement tiles: Sometimes the best backsplash for granite or quartz countertops is one that makes a statement. Some designers choose tiles with a colorful pattern that tie in elements of your paint or the countertop itself. On the other hand, a few splashes of color can be used to guide your visitors’ eyes around the kitchen itself. In addition, adding a single mosaic pattern – often above the range – creates another strong focal point.

I would give Choice 10 stars if I could. The folks at Choice Home Remodeling have replaced all 31 of the windows in our house over the past year. They are incredibly professional and deliver an outstanding final product. The replacement windows look better than the originals and I get compliments on them all the time! The inside temperature of the inside glass on a 55 degree day has improved by 8 degrees! I am looking forward to seeing what the differential is once the weather turns cold. Their pricing is fair and the quality is second to none. I recommend them 1000%.
We absolutely love the new door we just had installed from Choice! We had such a great experience with Choice from start to finish. Tim was great and helped us pick out the perfect door for our home and didn't try to sell us the most expensive model and was honest, not pushy. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and professional and the work was top notch.
I bought my windows from them. Everyone one was so nice and professional. Christie was very helpful. Thank you, will use again for other projects
So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
