Having a plain backsplash in your kitchen is a sure fire way to make the entire kitchen look boring and unimaginative. There is really no reason not to have one installed when there are so many amazing things you can choose from, its a relatively cheap project, and the effects it has on the entire kitchen are breath taking. There are lots of different materials you can use for your kitchen backsplash and design ideas you can employ. Lets take a look at some of ways our customers have used our tile.
Here our client used our sky blue glass tile to add an accent color to their kitchen backsplash. By using a glass tile on their backsplash they were able to reflect more light into the room and keep that light airy feeling that they wanted. Also they were able to break up the white of the cabinets at increase the visual space of the kitchen.
You don’t have to limit yourself to just one material for your backsplash like our client did above. Our next client used our stainless steel 1×2 tile behind their stove and then our white glass tile for the rest of their backsplash. Here our client choose to use their dark counter top to visually separate the kitchen, and changed up the material from glass to stainless steel to give you nice visual accent, while still keeping to their monochromatic theme that they desired.
Another idea you might enjoy is to use a number of different colors in your backsplash. People have been using this technique for a while now but with 1″ x 1″ tiles or better known as mosaic tiles. Some are turned off by the busyness of the smaller tiles and are now turning to using 3″ x 6″ tiles to create their mosaic backsplashes. Here our client used our Sagebrush, Sky, Glacier, Vapor, and Ocean glass tiles to create this fun backsplash.
While it’s true that many people choose to have their subway tile installed in a brick pattern. It’s also completely fine to go with a stacked or linear pattern of the tiles. Some times the type A in all of us just wants everything clean, organized and aligned. That’s exactly the effect this kitchen backsplash idea pulled off using our Ocean Gray glass tile.
Our last idea is to go mini! That’s right, if you believe that cute things come in small packages, then you will definitely want to see what happens when traditional 3″ x 6″ subway tile is shrunk down to 1″ x 2″ and ready to be used on your kitchen backsplash. Our client was charged with sprucing up this vacation spot and choose to use our mini white subway tile for the kitchen backsplash.
