I see what you mean, and I guess my first choice would be something plainer, but on the other hand the purpose of a backsplash is to get splashed, and stains will be less noticeable than on a solid colour ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d go for bigger squares if feasible, and less of a pattern.  Remember that when you clean it, every spot there is grout (I’m assuming it’s indented) will have to get cleaned too.  Pain in the ass.

A darker backsplash would compliment the stove, the darker cabinets, the drawer knobs and the darker grain in the marble. This one blends to the paint. It could work but a larger tile that is darker would work better for your kitchen.

I really like this backsplash and would use it entirely behind the stove and then as a stripe between larger tiles over the counters.  If you use light-colored grout it will brighten up your kitchen nicely and bring out the lighter hues in your counter top.

We are at Lowes looking for backsplash for our kitchen so I took a couple pictures for you. Hope this helps. They are a few feet above my head so the angle makes them look darker than they really are. Up to your taste, the second tile, the left sample has light to brighten your kitchen with a bit of darker to accent the cabinets and appliances

We just redid our kitchen and went with similar ideas. The cabinets are cherry, the granite is similar to yours, and we went with slightly larger subway tile backsplash from Lowe’s with an almond colored grout. Our walls are “squash bisque” from Behr, so on the darker side, and we wanted to lighten the room up a bit.

Here’s a better pic. Excuse the mess, I was making dinner when I took it and I’m not home to take another one.

I really love that backsplash! I’m a big fan of the small tiles ๐Ÿ™‚ I actually came across this backsplash on Pinterest the other day, and I think it would really compliment your granite and cabinets while not being too dark. Good luck on your backsplash search! ๐Ÿ™‚
