3. Make a decision on the following elements of your backsplash:

    • Material
    • Shape
    • Color
    • Pattern

Note: Many quartz-stone counters are easy to match and seamlessly blend with a wide range of color palettes.

You may also want to try tone-on-tone matching, using one single color palette in different shades. Choose a backsplash with the same color as your stone countertop but only in a different shade; either lighter or darker works.
