Black, silver, white kitchen?
 
Im redoing my outdated kitchen. The cabinets are white with silver trim. Im keeping the cabinets because they are pretty new. Putting a new black granite countertop with silver spekcs, (to replace wood countertops) and putting up a pressed tin silver backsplash. Knobs and handles have rusted therefore I will be spray painting them silver because they are very expensive to purchase new ones. What color floor tiles would go? Does anyone have pictures of a white, black, silver kitchen. Does anyone have pictures of a pressed backsplash kitchen? Do these colors go?

I have black w/ gray granite counters, creamy white cabinets (we painted), silver handles-I replaced all drawer knob pulls w/ silver cup pulls-kept all the rest silver knobs. The knobs were $2-3 (7 yrs ago) at our local home depot, the pulls were $3-4 each (more recently). We initially left the hinges, sprayed them silver, but a couple years later ended up replacing them-they got cruddy, chipped, etc. What a difference when we replaced them-had no idea cabinets were supposed to open and close smoothly and quietly!!
We kept the floor the same, a reddish restaurant type of 6x6 tile-not my favorite, but it wasn't in the budget to replace. If I had my drothers, I'd replace the tile with wood floors that go into the other rooms-a lot easier to stand on when cooking. Slate would really look nice-it's just not easy on your feet/legs, nor is any tile, but it's probably the most popular material people use in a kitchen.
Your pressed tin backsplash sounds like it will work really well, I love that look. We used white subway tile for ours.
good luck!
