Kitchen Design: Backsplashes add Pop and Personality

kitchen design, kitchen design backsplashDoing a little home improvement around our house lately. Check it out; there are many seemingly small elements in the home that once upgraded or redesigned, give spaces a whole new personality. Backsplashes are one of these elements. Some designers consider them the focal point of the entire room and can easily redefine the look of a kitchen without all the expenses and inconvenience.

While functional and vital to counter spaces, cooking areas, and sinks, backsplashes also offer immense opportunity to mix things up or refresh a room. Tiles, specifically “subway” tiles (rectangular, ceramic) have been the standard for backsplashes. While various colors and layouts of subway tiles can create an aesthetic look, most homeowners are making minor statements of personality and artistic expression with other materials and colors.

Below are a list of materials becoming commonplace in backsplash designs:

  •  Tiles (copper, glass, tin, pebble, limestone)
  •  Combinations of Tiles (usually with glass)
  •  Wallpaper
  •  Stainless Steel
  •  Wood
  •  Brick
  •  Chalkboard
  •  Hand-Painted Murals
  •  Glass
  •  Back Painted Glass
  •  Sea Glass
  •  Mirrors
  •  Stone
  •  Quartzite Sandstone
  •  Marble (whole slab)
  •  Marble Mosaic
  •  Copper
  •  River Rock
  •  Vintage or Restaurant-Themed Signs
  •  Bottle Caps
  •  Reclaimed Barn Wood
Have fun with these small ways to make a big splash in your home!
