Happy Friday everyone! Today let's talk about one of the fun details of building/designing a home...BACKSPLASHES!
Kitchen backsplashes can make a huge impact on the room, and the options and designs are as varied as the kitchens that accommodate them. From a minimalist neutral backsplash that spans from ceiling to floor to the tiniest custom mosaic applied in a specific area, these important design elements provide many decorating and functional possibilities.
Here are a few of our favorite options...
Many people believe the only color for the kitchen is white. They love the clean, fresh sanitary feel and the timeless, classic look. We couldn't agree more.
Be as subtle or as flashy as you like with a metallic backsplash. With so many textures, shapes, and finishes to choose from, you can create just the look you are going for.
Classic, yet modern...you can never go wrong with a glass backsplash. It is sure to freshen up any kitchen and add just enough texture to make things interesting. Options range from various sized tiles and panels, to custom cut pieces, and a broad array of colors.
Don't be afraid of adding black to your kitchen. When done right, it is just as elegant as a white kitchen. If a black kitchen seems a little too overzealous, consider pairing black and white. A black backsplash with white cabinets is sure to make a bold statement.
Carrara Marble Backsplash
Carrara marble is a timeless classic that’s been used in homes for thousands of years.. Did you know Michelangelo’s “David” was carved from Carrara?!? It’ll look as good in the next millennium as it does now. There are so many options if you are interested in spicing things up a bit... sleek marble panels, brick pattern, herringbone, hexagon, or other geometric tiles. The marble's tone and texture also has many variations. The possibilities with Carrara are endless.
Don't rule out wood as a material option for backsplashes. Whether is is raw, engineered, or restored...they all have their place in the right kitchen.
The chalkboard backsplash has a cool look, and can be fun and practical in the kitchen area. Its' also a budget friendly option you could easily do yourself!
Gold Toned Backsplash
Gold tones are back--and we are hoping they are here to stay! I've been seeing a lot more options for gold toned backsplashes lately. Ranging from champagne, to rose gold, brass, and coppery tones to classic gold. Some options mix different gold hues and textures, as well as gold+silver metallics. Don't be afraid to mix gold tones and textures! And don't be afraid to mix gold and silver either. The matchy-matchy home styles are a thing of the past. Have a little fun....everyone needs a little gold in their life, right?
White Geometric Backsplash
This fresh white geo backsplash is oh so unique and makes such a statement, while also staying true to the simplistic elements we love. Paired with small can lights, this becomes the centerpiece of your kitchen or bar area.
Industrial Steel Backsplash
I found this one on the Ridalco site, and thought it would be a great tile alternative to those who prefer a look that is a bit more industrial and edgy. According to Ridalco, a stainless steel backsplash seamlessly integrated into your countertop leaves no grouting or cracks for crumbs and liquids to get trapped in. And stainless steel gives you greater flexibility to fit into irregular angles and curves.
Penny Tile Backsplash
Dark penny tiles paired with white cabinets, creates a bold textured look I love. The penny tiles seem to work well in either modern or more transitional or traditional kitchens. This style also looks great in gray, stainless, or other metallic or neutral hues, or in bold colors to add pops of color.
