Celeste, consider a burgundy glass tile mossaic to go with your Paradiso Classic granite.
HI: I have golden oak cabinets, paradiso classic granite countertops, and currently have a deep burgundy linen-texured wallpaper, which is a lovely look, but I've grown tired of the overall darkness. I'm looking for suggestions for a tile backsplash...suggestions, please? Thank you!
Try out a Crema Marfil, or a nice light Travertine tile, good luck, Kelly!
KellyCould you reccomend a backsplash that would look appropriate with the following color scheme:White cabinets, yellow walls, stainless steel appliances, napoli granite; at our wits end. Thanks.
Hi Kelly, Regarding to Peter replying I would also try with Bianco Romano, Ipanema White or River Valley as a countertop. On Island I would consider to look at Coffee Brown, Tan Brown and Tropical Brown. Stone with movements against consitent will reflect style of your kitchen. Good luck !
The Giallo Ornamental sounds like a great complimentary stone for a Coffee Brown, however being, that it has some blues in it if you wanted to go a little crazier you could also go with a Blue Pearl. Thanks Kelly.
Could go a little crazier and high end on the island, though.
Hi, we just painted our cabinets SW Dover White and have a black island and a dark wood floor with quite a bit of red in it. What granite would you suggest? Thinking of Indian Coffee Brown for the perimeter but would like something light on the island or should I use one granite for everything? Trying to stay on the low end due to budget restraints. Thought maybe Giallo Ornamental would go with the Indian Coffee Brown but worried it could be too light for everything.
Hi, I would recommend you go with travertine tiles as a backsplash. That one stone will look like timeless and antique especially when it's leather and honed finished. I've attached some ideas for you: Antique Ivory Travertine Tiles, Beige Travertine Tiles or Multi Colour Travetine Mosaic. I hope I could help !
We are remodeling our kitchen with dark wood floors, creamy cabinets, and Giallo Ornamental granite countertops. What backsplash would you recommend? I would like something updated but timeless. Thanks!
Hi, I think that both stones Giallo Ornamental and Santa Cecilia are similiar to each other and both will be matching with your cabinets. The best way to choose the exact stone is to see the whole slab, take the sample to your home and compare with your cabinets and appliance. Regarding to the simplest backsplash is to give the same backsplash as the countertop, also I would recommend you see the Merola tiles, names Cobble Polar, please see the attachment. Good luck !
We are having an impossible time choosing between Giallo Ornamental and Saint Cecilia original granite. We have a very small kitchen with honey oak cabinets, white appliances, and a tan tiled floor with brown grout. We are planning on selling soon and would like to keep the room light and neutral, in addition to toning down the honey oak cabinets. What granoie would you suggest? Also is their a simple backsplash you would reccomend? Thank You!
Classic and timeless choice of Giallo Ornamental stone would complement your design very nicely with antique cabinets.
I've attached pictures of such a sample of the kitchen. Your kitchen will look calm, very light with warm highlights of the stone. Also I would try with Santa Cecilia.
However if you would like to get more elegant contrast between your cabinets and countertop then you can try with esspresso cabinets. I think that both types of cabinets are great, you will have to decide where you will feel better. In regard to a floor I would recommend you go with wood panels to antique cabinets, but to esspresso cabinets with porcelain or marble tails, please see the attachment with the colour.
We are having a dilemma choosing between an antique white vs. espresso cabinets. Using giallo ornamental for our countertops. Also have a very open floor plan so the paint option for both plays an important role as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello! For the floor tile selection, I recommend to use a porcelain tile as they are quite durable and low maintenance. Specifically, I have darker but warm options in-mind such as Alfagres line Mocca color, or Daltile line Fidenza Cafe color. I've attached pictures of my choices for your easy reference. In regard to the backsplash decision, are you leaning toward a lighter or darker shade? Do you enjoy a tumbled natural stone tile or perhaps you'd like to go in a more contemporary glass tile direction?
We are redoing our entire kitchen and have selected Kemper cabinets auburn finish in hickory for our wood. We'll be using Giallo Ornamental for our granite countertops. I need to find a tile backsplash as well as tile flooring to put in our kitchen. Any suggestions? I have 3 children, so I hesitate in making the flooring too light.
Hello. I recommend a light, yet warm tumbled natural stone. The always classy Oyster Mix Flamed travertine tile would be an appropriate choice that offers a timeless flair. I've attached a photo for your reference. Good luck!
Hello Dolores. I have the perfect recommendations for you! Take a look at Astoria and Sunset Ivory as they are both light and warm, beautiful colors. I've created a Comparison Chart for you between these two stones for easy reference and side-by-side comparison: http://www.marble.com/material... Hope this helps! :-)
what is a good back splash to match gaillio imperial.
For my bathroom, I would like a very light, neutral granite with which I can use a light sand color tile on the floor and shower. Cabinets are medium brown
I've attached a photo of the stone from an online search because we do not have this color name, although it might be called something else with our company (often fabricators can give a stone their own name, so it can get quite confusing, unfortunately). Since this granite has strong and deep golden highlights, I'd use a light and neutral backsplash tile. I have choices such as Durango Classic marble in a Diamonte Grande pattern, or Crema Marfil tumbled marble. I've attached photos for your reference. Good luck!
Hello. Either choice you've mentioned is appropriate as they are both timeless and classic colors. I am leaning toward the Giallo Ornamental because it's a shade darker therefore would offset the light cabinets more appropriately. Good luck!
We are remodeling our kitchen with a "Florida beach theme". Ordered light maple shaker cabinets in natural. Dark slate tile floor. Trying to choose a granite to keep it very light feeling. Can't decide between giallo ornamental light and santa cecila light ??
Whats a good backsplash and floor tile for yellow moon granite??
Sure! I have some suggestions for you to consider. A Rainbow Deco Dur Travertine tile design would look very neutral and calm against SC granite. Also, Merola Cobble Polar Ceramic Subway tile could fit your design set-up very nicely. I've attached photos for you to visualize my choices!
I have red oak cabinets with honey oak stain and Santa Cecilia granite any suggestions for back splash. i want to use something neutral.
Since the Super Classico granite is a rich and warm pattern but with subtle veins and hues, a neutral but interesting glass tile would look very nice against your granite. Take a look at Mirabelle Collection smoky brown glass tile in a brick pattern. I've attached a photo for your reference. Good luck!
It's a good and pretty popular idea to have the backsplash pick-up the hues in in the floor, but not necessarily match. For the floor tile you can a porcelain choice such as Daltile Fidenza Bianco. Then for the backsplash a light and subtle mosaic such as Linear Cotton Wood or Anatolia Bliss Norwegian Ice would be appropriate. I've attached photos for you. Good luck!
I have honey colored cabinets and super classico granite. I need help with a back splash.
We have cherry shaker cabinets and pardisco classico granite counter tops. Our appliances are all stainless steel. We are going for a modern look and wondering what backsplash to use? Should we do glass or marble? We are staying away from travertine. Is the rule of thumb matching backsplash to floor? If so, then what floor tile should we use as well? Currently we have white tile in our kitchen. It's an open concept home thus kitchen faces family room. OUr family room has Mirage, Java hardwood.
Hello! There are lots of suggestions that are applicable and a great choice. You can use a light and beautiful glass tile such as Mirabelle Collection smoky brown glass in a brick pattern, or a warm tumbled natural stone such as Noce travertine in a mini Versailles pattern. I've attached photos for your reference. Good luck!
I just bought a new home. I selected the santa cecilia granite countertop with Maple espresso cabinets..any ideas for the backsplash. Please advise. Thanks
In addition to Kinga's wonderful suggestions, I'll throw in a few choices. Take a look at Autumn Mist tumbled slate and Capadoccia Glass & Tumbled marble. Hope this helps!
A beautiful mosaic like City Lights Paris, SomerTile Bronze White Translucent Glass Mosaic Tile or Anatolia Bliss Bamboo Mosaic would work great in your space. If you prefer a classic look, a tumbled marble with accent tiles is also another great choice. Let me know what you think!
I am doing a wet bar/kitchen cubboard area in a lower level, I am doing an espresso flat panel cabinet and the giallo ornamental granite, need an idea for the backsplash
I recommend a darker backsplash to make the space "pop". My recommendations are a Moresco 2" x 2" marble mosaic or Mirabelle Collection peat brown glass tile in a brick pattern. I've attached photos of my suggestions. hope this helps!
I am remodeling my kitchen and have picked toffee stained cabinets with giallo ornamental granite. Now I'm unsure as to the backsplash. Since they are both neutral colors should I go with a darker backsplash or cream/tan to blend. The floor is yellow birch. Help!
My recommendations for you are the Oyster Mix Flamed travertine, or for a mixed color mosaic consider the Autumn Mist Tumbled Slate Mosaic. I've attached photos for your reference. Hope this helps!
I'd stick with the light and warm countertop choice such as Giallo Ornamental or Santa Cecilia Classic. In regard to a backsplash choice, you can pick a darker backsplash to offer a contrast such as Merola Cobble Noce Ceramic Subway tile or Mirabelle Collection peat brown glass tile in a brick pattern. I've attached photos for your reference. Good luck!
There are plenty of directions to go in for the backsplash decision. You can pick a soft and neutral natural stone such as Mediterranean Ivory tumbled travertine, or perhaps go with a Piano York Glass & Stone Mosaic. I've attached photos for your reference. Hope this helps!
I am building a new home. I will have a medium oak hardwood with darker graining, pulling in my terrain hickory cabinet color. I will have santa cecelia light granite. I love the glass mosaic tile, however I don't want it to be too busy visually. Do you have any suggestions? I love the color in the mosaic backsplashes (in the tan family, mixed with lighter shades - rectangular shaping). Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Derek,Thank you for your suggestions! Giallo Ornamental was my first choice but in the end I ended up with White Montecarlo which has more movement in it . I thought Giallo Ornamental was safe and I wanted something different. Do you have any suggestions for a backsplash with this granite?
Dear Linda, you need to become surely settled on the countertop choice first before picking a backsplash as that's one of the last steps in the kitchen remodeling process and is installed after the granite counters. I think the Ornamental granite is a very nice and elegant choice to go against natural cherry wood. Some other recommendations you can look at are Santa Cecilia Real and New Venetian Gold. In regard to the backsplash, I am leaning toward a warm, tumbled natural tile for you but do not want to name any specifics as of yet.
Sure! I recommend tiles such as Mocha Split-Faced Versailles Travertine, Mirabelle Collection golden brown glass tile in a brick pattern, and or for something a little more neutral and softer try Capadoccia Glass Tumbled Travertine. I've attached photos of all my suggestions. Hope this helps!
Hello, I need help choosing a granite for my countertops, I have Natural Cherry cabinets which have darkened over time , Oak hardwood flooring and black appliances, My walls are painted Benjamin Moore Barley. I have been looking at Giallo Ornamental Guidoni but would like other opinions also what kind of backsplash do you suggest?Thank you for your help
Can you help with suggestions picking a kitchen backsplash? The granite we picked is Giallo Ornamental and floor tiles are beige color with mixed ligth brown in the middle.
You're on the right track for a soft, neutral, and classic style for the backsplash. My recommendation is Merola Cobble Polar Ceramic Subway tile and you can add an interesting accent of your choosing. I've attached a photo of my suggestion. Good luck!
Can you help with suggestions picking a kitchen backsplash? Our cabinet color will be Carmel and the granite we picked is Giallo Ornamental. We will have oak flooring (stain color yet to be determined). I don't want to create to much competition between backsplash and granite. I was thinking a simple subway tiles possibly with a small "row" of an accent.
There are lots of interesting choices. I feel that a mosaic would fit in nicely, take a look at choices such as Piano York Glass & Stone Mosaic from Somertile Reflections, or a Glass & Stone Strips mosaic from South Shore Flooring for something a little more neutral. I've attached photos for your reference.
I'm remodeling my kitchen with espresso shaker-styled cabinets, giallo ornamental countertops, stainless appliances and Benjamin Moore's Cumulus Cloud paint.....can you please make a suggestion for a tiled backsplash that will run up the wall behind the chimney-style hood.
I'd use a rich, warm granite color with creme undertones for an efficient contrast, such as Giallo Ornamental C or Sunset Ivory. If you'd like to really pick up the wall color as well, options such as New Venetian Gold or Santa Cecilia Classic are also quite appropriate. Hope this helps!
My kitchen cabinets are black with silver pulls and my walls are a sunny yellow. What color flooring and counter tops would you suggest?
I have a few suggestions for you that should stir up the imagination! My choices are Anatolia Bliss Cotton Wood Linear Mosaic, or a Dolce Vita Teakwood Blend Rectangles Mosaic. I've attached pictures for your reference.
I have a kitchen with natural cherry cabinets and giallo napoli granite countertops. I'd like to use the wine color of the granite as accents on the backsplash but I'm not a creative individual. Suggestions please.Flo Brady
For the kitchen backsplash, my recommendations would be tiles such as the Capadoccia Glass & Tumbled Travertine mosaic, or a Glass & Stone Strips mosaic by South Shore Flooring. I've attached pictures for your reference.
New kitchen with Gunsmoke stain hickory floors, espresso multi tiered cabinets, stainless appliances and Giallo Santo granite. The attached family room has stacked stone fireplace and I want it to compliment the backsplash. Suggestions?
I'm a little confused, what granite as you using?
Remodelling kitchen.Picked maple cabinets cider color. I have porcelain greyish tile which we are keeping but want to regroute (is this duable)? My back splash matches tile but want to change that to glass or maybe continue with the granite counters up the wall instead of glass.
What colors would you suggest for granite to go with the cider color cabinents and the greyish looking floor. And would you recommend the granite backsplash versus glass?
My recommendations for you to create the look, feel, and atmosphere you enjoy to go against Santa Cecilia counters would be a 2" x 2" Montego Sela Autumn Slate mosaic, or if that's a little too much color or movement, there are options such as Capadoccia glass & tumbled Travertine mosaic, or for something unique you can try the Mirabelle Collection glass tile in a brick pattern. I've attached pictures of my suggestions for your reference. Hope this helps!
I'd say you can use the travertine as a border or molding for the brown subway tile backsplash to decorate the design nicely. For wall color, my recommendations go along the lines of Benjamin Moore Navajo White or Linen White.
For a warm, neutral and soft look to compliment the Ornamental counters, I recommend to use a Oyster Mix Flamed travertine backsplash or a similar tile to this shade. For the wall color, Benajmin Moore line "Navajo White" is quite appropriate.
