White Antique kitchen cabinets -- backsplash too white?

6 years ago

Hi --

Our new kitchen cabinets are antique white which makes them off-white. I have two granites, the one that is on the exterior with the upper cabinets is a black leathered. (The island is alaskan white). I have picked out a backsplash to go with them but am concerned that it might make my cabinets look yellowish. (which I don't want). I also want to go more traditional versus modern, which is why I like the original whiter tiles.

My designer thinks that we could either go with a multi-colored backsplash or put a more neutral grout on the original ones I picked out.

Does anyone have any experience with this? This picture is not great as you will see, but it might give you an idea. My preference is the tile on the left. Thank you for any thoughts you give....
