Countertop and backsplash help for white kitchen!

4 years ago

Looking for help in our countertop /backsplash pairing for a new kitchen with white shaker style cabinets. We are going for a low contrast look, something easy on the eyes but not entirely white. For an L-shaped kitchen, my idea is to use Cosmopolitan White Caezarstone quartz for the countertops and backsplash on one wall, and have textured brick tile backsplash on the other wall. My reasoning was that the brick is more active than CW quartz and will look like a feature wall in a way, while the CW backsplash part will not be competing with it.

Do you think this is a sound idea? Won't it look like we ran out of money in the middle of the renovation and had to finish the backsplash with tile?

Here is a mockup I made in Photoshop to better visualize the idea. Thank you!
