There are a lot of things to consider when you are designing a kitchen, everything from the cabinets to the kitchen appliance to use. But did you know that there are small things you need to think about, among them is the kitchen backsplash you should use?
Why is a kitchen backsplash important in a kitchen? It serves an important utilitarian function. A kitchen backsplash keeps you from damaging your kitchen walls with spills. But there is another reason why it is important to your kitchen’s design: it establishes the space’s look.
By choosing the right materials, colors, and arrangements, you can either make or break the overall design of your kitchen with a backsplash. Here are some design ideas that you can consider for your own kitchen.
To highlight the location of your sink, use long lined backsplash. Arrange it vertically and not horizontally to accent the sink’s location.
Creating an elevated shelf with your backsplash can increase its functionality in your counter space.
The dark tiles of this backsplash can add a sense of dimension to your kitchen. Pair it with light wood cabinets to highlight the backsplash itself.
If you really want to make a statement with your backsplash, you can start creating a work of art by creating a statement piece, like this.
A checkered pattern like this can mirror the colors of the kitchen around it. This is perfect for any contemporary style.
If you don’t want to use a bright bold design, you can take things a step further and create a mosaic picture instead.
Pair It With Hardware
You would also want to consider the hardware in your kitchen and how it can match up with the tone and color of your backsplash.
Using dark stone tiles can add a sense of masculine refinement to the kitchen space. Pair it with silver hardware for a more elegant feel.
Combining the light wood of the cabinets and the green tiles of this backsplash can create a vibe that you would love to wake up and create breakfast in the morning.
White on White
A white tile kitchen backsplash that matches with the countertop makes the dark cabinets pop out.
Your kitchen backsplash gives you the opportunity to inflict some of your personality to your kitchen. It does not only create an additional workspace but also protects your kitchen walls and affects the mood of your home.
