help! i finally get to remodel my kitchen. I have already the dark cherry cabinets with walnut floors. Everything in my kitchen tends to lean towards the yellow tones. Should I go with the new venetian gold countertops. I am going for more of a tuscan style. Also, I have no idea what to pick for a backsplash. I don't want to get trendy because in reality I know we will probably never update our kitchen again :) I would appreciate any advice you have. Thank you!
KatieB,This is quite a versatile stone, a multitude of colors could go along with this. Any thing in the burgundy, beige, brown, white, or cream tones would go just fine. Give it a shot and be creative!
I am re-doing our kitchen! We have chosen Santa Cecilia granite countertops and white, shaker 36' in cabinets. Need help with backsplash suggestions. Help!
Hi Derek, I have Santa Cecilia granite and espresso cabinets. What do you think of Floridatile travertine in Picasso? Or should I stay with a creamy ivory travertine?
It sounds like you've got it together my friend, however as for the granite, you might want to go with something a little bit more edgy like a Bordeaux! Check it out!
I'm having to make selections for the kitchen and I'm not quite sure if the granite I've picked "Santa Cecilia Classic" is the best choice for the floor tile, cabinets and backsplash?
Ceramic Floor Tile: VITROMEX Alaska Klondike
Kitchen/Bath Cabinets: Dark Walnut
Backsplash: Diagonal Ivory Travertine w/Dark Emperador & Glass Mosaic Tile strip divide just above a vertical bottom layer of travertine
Although they all are beautiful in their own right ... I'm not sure that they all compliment each other cohesively? :|
Also, the cabinets are dark ... and my furniture decor is Old World Tuscan so my dark wood and iron breakfast bar stools, table and chairs will bring about a contrast in addition to the Bronze fixtures and lights! The appliances are stanless steel.
If not, can you please advise!
Hello. You're on the right track for a neutral, subtle, and light backsplash to go against the busy and rich grain of the Santa Cecilia granite. My recommendation for you to consider would be something like a Bologna Ciaro 3" x 6" Tumbled Travertine in a subway brick pattern. I've attached a photo for your easy reference. Best of luck!
I have Santa Cecilia countertops and burgundy wine stained cabinets. It has been difficult finding a backsplash that will go well. I am now thinking of subway tile (not white). Can you please suggest colors and/or ther options. Thank you!
The Santa Cecilia is a very popular granite that is timeless and classic, it's strange that you are not able to find an appropriate match. I do understand this stone has many varieties and batches that differ in color tone and pattern so the difficulty may lie there. Some similar stones to Santa Cecilia that complement it nicely would be New Venetian Gold, Giallo Ornamental, Giallo Napoleone / Napoli and Ouro Brasil. Best of luck!
I have existing 8 yr old Santa Celcilia granite with creamy white cabinets. I am enlarging my island and wanted to use the same granite but am having trouble finding a match or something that will work with the Santa Cecilia. Any suggestions?
What is the name the granite you used and please describe in more detail the subway tile as well as other aspects (cabinet color, type of floor). Your question is too vague.
I did pattern granite and colored subway tiles that had the same colors I feel like it is not good looking what is your thought
I really enjoy your travertine idea. A warm brown tumbled natural stone backsplash is very appropriate to go against Santa Cecilia granite. My suggestions are Puetro Gold and Mocha shades. I've attached photos for your reference. Good luck!
Well they’re both just as good! However, I feel the tumbled travertine is a richer and warmer choice. Throw in some accent tiles and your design will be complete! My vote is for the travertine!
I have red oak cabinets with an acorn stain, white appliances, black wrought iron hinges and handles on my cabinets and a black wrought iron faucet. I have chosen Santa Ceclia granite, because it picks up the cabinet color, appliances and hardware. My problem is in picking out a backsplash. My first thought was simple, white subway tile with white grout, but now I am thinking taupe colored tumbled travertine. Which is better?
Also, acquire samples of each to put against your black cabinets in the kitchen light to see how you enjoy the various combinations. Use process of elimination to choose the shade you're attracted to the most. Good luck!
Thanks for your input! The Santa Cecilia is a wonderful stone and you will enjoy it for years to come. The great thing about the SC is that it works with many different designs, so if you ever decide to change your design, your stone will look great! Good luck!
All of the stones you mentioned are similar to each other. However, they do have distinct differences such as color or pattern. Since natural stone varies from shipment to shipment, it is very important to see these stones in person and compare them to each other to really understand the differences. Hope this helps a little!
Hi! I have black cabinets and I chose Santa Cecilia for my counters and I LOVE IT! I know this doesn't answer yoru question of the difference, but I thought I would comment. Hope this helps in some way... Happy shopping!
Please help! I have black cabinets and I am trying to decide between New Venetian Gold and Santa Cecilia or Santa Cecilia Classic. Can you tell me the difference between the 3? Thanks
The Romano Delicatus is a sharp, elegant, light stone with bursts of golden veins that make the stone a focal point of the kitchen. I am leaning toward the Romano Delicatus for you.
I also like grey mixed in
I tend to like movement. black with tans,beiges maybe browns. I also like the Bianco ramano and white family. Unless you have any other colors to consider. Thanks!
Hello. Do you enjoy movement and veins in granite or a more consistent, speckled pattern? Are there any colors you've looked at so far that have caught your attention?
