A kitchen doesn’t need to be swimming in color to make a statement. Traditionally a backsplash is placed behind the stovetop or the sink so when splashes inevitably happen it’s easy to clean up without ruining the rest of the wall. However some trends for your backsplash can include a variation of traditional styles with a little twist to add different life to your kitchen! Here are some great ideas we have for your next backsplash upgrade.
A Stripe of Color:
Sometimes a stripe of color is all you need. The kitchen could be a neutral color such as a white or beige with subway tiles as a backsplash. Instead of having it go all the way up the wall, break up the white with a stripe or two of different, colorful tiles to add something to it.
For a slim and sleek look for your kitchen, make your backsplash a gorgeous stainless steel. It will have a modern feel while turning your kitchen into a high-end restaurant. Bon’ Appetit!
Change Up the Pattern:
Who says your backsplashes need to be symmetrical? Change it up with a non-repeating pattern, a variation of tile color, or whatever you feel looks great and goes with your kitchen vibe!
While a backsplash is traditionally behind the stove or a sink, you can have the tile continue throughout the entire kitchen to give a striking look. This might suit an open kitchen more to help break up the kitchen and other rooms without separating them.
Make it an Art Piece:
Make the focal point of your kitchen be the backsplash. Turn it into a mosaic or a piece of art with tile or other material that can be wiped down easily.
Take the Pattern Out of the Box:
The backsplash doesn’t need to be just rectangles or squares of tile. Any pattern can work such as small circles, hexagons, or anything else that suits the rest of the decor.
Built on an Idea:
Take smaller tiles to create a bigger design. Small rectangles can be put together to make an interesting chevron pattern or diamonds. Keep the tiles all one color or interchange the colors to really focus on the design.
Grout it Out:
The grout of tiles is essential for the pieces to stay in place but why does it have to be the unsung hero? Make the grout the focal point instead of the tiles.
