Hi, we are installing soapstone countertops on the perimeter of our kitchen this week and are in but of
a quandary when it comes the backsplash. I love the idea of a slab backsplash, but I worry that it will be too dark. The wall with the sink is the only wall that will have a backsplash (the other wall is floor to ceiling pantry cabinets. The cabinets to the sides of the window will have glass fronts. The cabinet color will be SW Shoji White. The plan for the island is to be a light colored butcher block (likely white oak that will match some open shelves. The adjoining living room has slate fireplace surround with a Carrara marble hearth stone. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
