    That's a nice idea. What color are your cabinets? Generally these days tile is used for backsplash instead of having a full granite splash, however sometimes clients still opt to go in this direction for a continuous, flowing pattern. It's very interesting and unique, plus the Surf Green has the movement in the stone to show off the pattern nicely.

    we want to use surf green for counters and has been suggested to continue the product for back splash,  any commets

    Absolutely! The Surf Green is a wonderful choice for an elegant contrast against light cabinets such as yours. In regard to a backsplash selection, I recommend to consider a tumbled natural marble tile such as Crema Marfil or Botticino. Good luck!

    Would this look good with white "transitional" cabinetry, dark wood floors and stainless appliances? If so any backsplash suggestions? Thx you.

    I feel like you're on the right track. My suggestions for you to consider and check out, in addition to the wonderful Surf Green which I feel is appropriate for the look you're trying to achieve, would be the following stones: Canela Bouquet, Juparana Sausalito, Verde Candeas, and Vermont Green. I've created a Comparison Chart for your your reference: As far as backsplash goes, glass is very sleek and elegant, especially a backplainted plate glass which is a surface that looks modern, refreshing, and it's very easy to clean. Hope this helps!

    We have a modified A frame home with reverse board and batten natural cedar siding in the woods on a lake. I like anything Frank Lloyd Wright like – nature inspired, simple, clean lines. We are doing an entire 1st floor remodel. The stacked stone fireplace, lots of windows and plate glass panel railings are staying. Everything else goes. We are looking at 4 3/4 dark oak stained and finished on site flooring, natural maple shaker cabinets and stainless steel appliances. It is an open galley plan with a 160″ wall to wall run with stools on the living room side (no upper cabinets) and the back side has a 42″ hallway back to a pantry a 24″ cabinet, then the stove with a stainless range hood that goes to the ceiling and another 24″ cabinet, then the counter depth fridge completes that run.I want a backsplash that goes under those two 24″ cabinets that flank the stove and goes all the way to the ceiling behind the hood. It will be the focal point of the kitchen.I am having a terrible time picking a granite and backsplash combo. I want something that won’t date, be too hard to keep clean and has no pink undertones. I don’t want something “typical” or too matchy watchy with only golds and browns. Right now I think I like Surf Green because Costa Esmeralda seems too grayed off and depressing. I want something relaxing and inviting that is semi interesting but doesn’t scream “look at me!!” with a plainer complementary back splash. I have been really considering maybe a backpainted plate glass.Any suggestions? This is the hardest most expensive decision ever!Thanks in advance for any help.Vicki
