Kitchen Backsplash: What Is It and What Designs are Available
A kitchen backsplash is the wall area of the kitchen. It doesn’t always encompass all of the wall around the kitchen but only the portion near the cabinets and appliances. For most home designs, the backsplash is the same color as the rest of the walls which can give an overall very clean and cohesive look. However, while most places make the backsplash plain, it is the perfect location to add some personality to your home design. Taking the opportunity to contrast your backsplash from the rest of the wall will make your home unique. Here are some of our ideas for backsplashes:
Marble is often used for a reason. Its simple and natural designs have been used for centuries and has been a crowd favorite since the Romans. It’s the perfect design for someone who wants something different but not dramatically so. Marble pairs well with many colors as well as designs so it’s a pattern that is very safe to use.
2. Three dimensional tiles Tiling the wall in the kitchen isn’t a new concept but it’s often very plain. To spice things up, the tiles can be made in three dimensions so that it has texture and pops out of the wall slightly. If you are looking for a small change to make the kitchen stand out just a little more this is a great idea if you keep the color neutral. However, if you are looking for a dramatic change or energy, getting the tiles in a fun color can set the entire tone of your kitchen. Darker jewel tones look amazing on white and neutral counters and appliances but are also stunning with black or dark kitchens as well. 3. Play with shapes
For those who want to make a statement, this is the way to do it. Triangles, hexagons, or even elongated hexagons are unique as well as rising in popularity in recent times. You can play with color, texture, as well as accents to add even more personality.
