The backsplash in your kitchen is a major design focal point for the room that ties together the cabinets, countertops and flooring. Designers have moved beyond simple white subway tiles and created stunning new designs that can make a big impact on the look of your kitchen. Here are a few styles to consider.
Larger tiles are showing up in backsplash designs, and one of the most popular looks is mosaics in San Diego CA. The pattern spans the entire tile and can be repeated side-by-side for a cohesive look or alternated with a solid color tile in a contrasting hue. Mosaic tiles are available in a variety of patterns and colors to complement any kitchen décor.
You can’t go wrong with the timeless appeal of a granite or marble backsplash. Larger tiles are the new trend for these as well, which works well if you have a spacious area to cover. If you have stone countertops, consider using the same color as your backsplash as well. Or use a darker color to play against light cabinets or lighter color as a contrast to dark cabinets. Remember to have the granite or marble re-sealed every year to prevent damage to the surface.
Metal backsplashes fit in any design, from contemporary to mid-century to western. Your choices include copper, stainless steel or white bronze. You decide whether you want them to shine in their natural glory or have them buffed down to a softer patina finish.
Glass is another popular option, especially for anyone with a small or dark kitchen, as these tiles reflect light. They are easy to clean and resist mildew, making them a great choice for anyone who suffers from allergies. Glass tiles are available in various colors to help you easily achieve any look you have in mind.
