  Seeking color advice for kitchen - painted glass backsplash
Seeking color advice for kitchen - painted glass backsplash Sign In/Join 
Greetings! I'm new to this board, as I'm seeking some advice
My wife and I are building a new house and we opted out of the builder grade backsplash.

We really like the idea of a painted glass backsplash in our kitchen and have even found a local company who will custom create and install for us

My question: Can you take a look at this photo and tell us color schemes that would fit in well? We're open to a bright color that provides some contrast

The cabinets are dark maple, the counter top is a medium grey quartz with flecks of copper and the wall paint is Collonnade grey by SW

Would a copper tone work here?

Thanks for any advice!

Turquoise... IF it will jive with your adjoining spaces. Whatever color you are considering, do view it in the room's lighting both day and night. Btw, a warm citrus green is another option.

Just a suggestion?
Before putting up any permanent backsplash, be sure that you do not want to have under cabinet lighting installed. It is fairly easy to do with just drywall cuts, and the damaged areas will be covered with the backsplash tile/glass.

I love Froo's suggestion.
To answer your question: Yes, copper would work beautifully too.
Looks like it's going to be one great looking kitchen.
