Whether it is a classic white subway tile backsplash or white marble backsplash, white is the fail-safe color option for this busy appeal. Also, you can complement the natural flecks and grains with matching colors. For example, if you have brown granite with gold and gray touches, you can use neutral-colored tiles to create a completed look.
