Kitchen Backsplash

  Kitchen backsplash is more than just a wall protection, it’s an opportunity to let the homeowner’s style and personality shine. The 18-inch gap between the countertop and the overhead wall-mounted kitchen cabinet is the perfect canvas to be bold and daring. Aside from stylistic expression, the backsplash helps protect the wall surface from splashes and stains. Additionally, it can be added at any time because cabinetry and appliances do not need to be removed. From traditional ceramic tile design to more innovative modern ideas and colors, the kitchen back splash remains the focal point of today’s kitchen.

Tile Backsplash
Less is sometimes more when it comes to the kitchen backsplash. Many beautiful kitchen backsplashes mimic the material that the kitchen floor is made of, but on a smaller scale. Keep the tile a neutral color, made of porcelain, stone or travertine, to create a beautifully blended and cohesive look in the kitchen. Nemo Tile carries several stunning stone options, such as granite, marble, or quartzite, in neutral colors that can enhance any backsplash. Dale Tile also offers very simple and clean tiles that can enhance any kitchen. A bit of color can be introduced with neutral stone tiles with bright veins of colors occurring naturally through the stone.

Backsplash Accents
For a bolder approach, the backsplash is a prime place to add a touch of color and whimsy. Try to add a band of tile that is a different color or different type of material about two-thirds of the way up the backsplash to introduce some visual interest. Or, take advantage of the large wall space behind the range. The larger area has the space to allow for an eye catching mosaic. Porcelanosa produces both stone and tile mosaics. Try subway tiles or patterned tiles, a new and upcoming trend for a mix and match look in the kitchen. For a completely bold and different approach, explore the options Artistic Tile provides. Producing tiles of non-traditional stone materials, like amethyst, these tiles are sure to provide an unparalleled, stunning look to any kitchen.

Mix it Up
Want to add a combination of both? There are several tile options that mix materials together. A slate tile backsplash with glass tiles inserted periodically can add a different dimension to a backsplash. Or, experiment with different types of metals combined with traditional porcelain. Another option is to mix shapes. Not all tiles have to be rectangular. There are several non-traditional tile shapes to choose from that can create a unique backsplash. The options are truly endless with the freedom to allow the homeowner to find exactly what style suits their needs.
