Our kitchen renovation is almost finished!! We only have to install the stainless steel chimney hood and the backsplash before we’re completely done. The countertop is honed marble and for the backsplash I was thinking a bright white subway or herringbone tile, or a marble subway or herringbone. Since the countertop is honed, should we choose polished or honed for the backsplash? Would the marble look too busy since the countertop has a lot of movement? Also, not sure if a marble backsplash is a good idea in a kitchen; would it be another thing we feel like we have to be careful with as far as stains? Any help is greatly appreciated-we're so excited to be on the home stretch!!
