A stacked stone backsplash using Norstone Rock Panels is a unique take on the strip of space commonly found between the cabinets and countertop and you might be surprised that it’ll end up being the first thing people see and talk about.An option for every kitchenA stone backsplash is one of the most durable finishes for the application, and by sealing the tile with a natural stone sealer, most household cleanup chores will be similar in involvement to other surfaces like ceramic and glass tile. So whether your kitchen is used hard every day, or barely used at all, Norstone Rock Panels make a great backsplash tile option.Details make the DifferenceSubtle details, such as under cabinet lighting or switch plates made of similar materials will allow your natural stone backsplash to pop off the wall.

Luckily, you can’t go wrong with a stone backsplash. Stone is more than just a passing trend. This neutral, universal look is here to stay, and there’s a style, color, and type of stone for any kitchen space. Here are three ideas to get your creative juices flowing as you design your new backsplash. 1. Limestone Limestone is quickly becoming the stone of choice for many homeowners and designers alike. It gives any home a luxurious look. It’s very long-lasting, and its light hues look fantastic when paired with stainless steel. Limestone is also unique because it’s made up of shells and traces of fossils. One attractive way to add limestone to your backsplash is to use Stone a’la Mod tile in Basketweave Honed Urban Bluestone. This pattern gives the kitchen backsplash a unique high-end look, and a softly textured limestone countertop adds a classy look and feel to the equation. For a more contemporary twist, combine the same dramatic backsplash with a more subdued ONE Quartz Micro Flecks countertop in Woven Wool. 2. Slate Slate has a distinctive yet understated look. It works well in both traditional and contemporary kitchen styles, and comes in subtle shades of blue, gray, green, or rose. It’s long been a favorite for any type of country-style kitchen but is also a top choice if you’re after a more elegant or sleek style. If you decide to go with a slate backsplash, consider going with the Slate Radiance Saddle Staggered Random stacked stone backsplash tile in beautiful shades of brown, taupe, and gray. It can be paired with a Sand Storm ONE Quartz Micro Flecks countertop. For a richer slate stone backsplash, go with Autumn Mist in a brick-joint natural cleft pattern. This backsplash looks great with a coordinating porcelain field tile such as English Grey from the Continental Slate collection. This field tile replicates the same beauty, color, and visual texture of natural slate, and this stunning combo works well with any style. 3. Travertine Travertine is a traditional material but can still hold its own in a more contemporary kitchen as well. It’s elegant and there are many options available for travertine stone backsplashes. One advantage of travertine is that you can create an almost seamless transition from your backsplash to your countertop. Although combining two honed stone materials is a good design tactic, it’s also fine to mix honed and polished materials to create an interesting visual. For instance, consider going with a rich honed mosaic like Noce from the Travertine Collection. This material serves as a stunning backdrop for granite in an equally rich brown, or a lighter stone that has rich brown flecks. It’s not hard to find a signature backsplash, but with all the fabulous stone backsplash tile options available it may be a little difficult to make up your mind. When you’re ready to find the perfect material, head to your local Daltile stone showroom or slab yard.
