What color to select for the glass of the backsplash in my kitchen?


Reader's question:

"What color to select for the glass of the backsplash in my kitchen? The cabinet doors are made of Bakelite in the color of sand. I would also need advice on the wall color. I would like to paint both the kitchen and the living room with the same color. 

The house is near the sea, the sofas are brown and the dining table is glass with nickel legs"


Our recommendations:
An opaque or translucent milk glass (milky white or colored) is a classic choice that fits with almost all the fabrics, furniture styles and decorative items. However you might also opt for a more contemporary solution, like for example for a glass with a print on its surface.  

glass, backsplash, kitchen, blue

Below, you can see a few color combinations of the wall and the glass of the backsplash, that fit with both the door cabinets and the brown sofas.

In relation to the color of the walls (both in the living room and the kitchen) we recommend a light tone like the off-white color with a sense of blue, green or beige. You can also highlight an element or a surface by painting it with a darker tone or with an opposite color.
