Howdy invin,


One school of thought is that horizontal surfaces should be similar in registration or depth of colour.

I think you may need to stop thinking about colour and just look at photos of kitchens and look how they are colour blocked.  If you have clippings go through them and see where the darks and lights are and which colours match and which ones contrast - likely a pattern will emerge.  I prefer a counter that relates to the cabinetry and a backsplash that sort of flows into the countertop with an unrelated paint colour.  Deciding on what look you like will help narrow your choices.


Here are some examples to get you started,

Happy Countering,
