The kitchen backsplash is a favorite spot for tile creativity, especially in residential settings. The backsplash offers an affordable way to incorporate tile, as well as a defined area where homeowners can get creative. And with today’s endless array of styles and options, kitchen backsplashes are looking better than ever.
Here are some ideas on how to make a statement with tile for your kitchen backsplash.
Subway tile offers a classic look that is timelessly appealing. This kitchen features our Savoy line in a simple yet sophisticated brick pattern that adds just the right texture, gloss, and interest to this gorgeous kitchen in a home in South Carolina. The look compliments a range of materials, color palettes, and kitchen styles from traditional to modern.
Glass mosaics are beautiful options for kitchen backsplashes. Whether you want a clean, linear look in a monochromatic pattern or you want to inject a dazzling spark of color to the kitchen, glass mosaics are up to the challenge.
Stone Looks & Details
Porcelain tile with the look of natural stone is a great surfacing choice for kitchens. It’s dense, durable and can capture the authentic appearance so many homeowners love. Today’s collections offer varied tile sizes, trims and decorative accents that invite custom patterns and unique installations that give stone looks so much versatility for the kitchen backsplash.
Focal Points/Tile as Art
Tile can be used to design eye-catching focal points and artwork that gives kitchen backsplashes added personality and sophistication. Focal points over the cooking range, framed by liners or borders, are very popular.
Metal Looks in Porcelain Tile
The look of metal achieved in porcelain tile is a fun alternative for kitchen backsplashes. With metal finishes prominent in the kitchen (often stainless steel these days), it can be a nice design option to carry that look through to the backsplash. The beauty of porcelain tile that has the look of metal is the ease of installation and maintenance long term. Metal-look tile is likely to keep looking great for years and years to come.
