Floor Tile and Backsplash Suggestions for Kitchen Update

Hi All,

Looking for some floor tile and backsplash suggestions for our kitchen update. Plan was to take up the old tile and continue the existing laminate floor into the kitchen...problem is the flooring is discontinued and cannot be found, so need to go with tile. Kept our original oak cabinets as-is and just installed new soapstone, which we plan to keep untreated as we like the color/patina. All stainless appliances (still need to install MW and DW).

Thought that a darker grey tile would work (similar to the soapstone), as the color should tie into the darker tones coming from the laminate floor.....the room has a lot of grey already going on (grey sofas, grey green paint color) and a lot of natural wood tones, so don't want to go too dark. As for backsplash, was thinking an off-white subway tile, nothing ornate and thin grout lines to keep things clean and low maintenance. Tile will go counter top to bottom of cabinet.

Any insight or opinions/feedback is super helpful....thank you!
