Backsplashes: Simple Kitchens with Big Personalities
Kitchen spaces are used every day – several times a day, so it is important to not only have a kitchen that works efficiently for your particular needs, but one that also feels like an inviting and comfortable space to be. The kitchen should be an extension of the home rather than a ‘stark room in which you slave over a hot stove’ – add some personality! Here’s how:
Warm and Inviting
An easy way to add some warmth to your kitchen is by adding a backsplash in a deep neutral tone such as brown. Keep it classical feeling and go for a marble-looking tile like Kali Tobacco or go ultra modern by adding a foe brick like Glove Brick Bhutan which additionally adds contrasting texture. Deeper colors like these go great with a generally lighter kitchen.
Are you torn between a glass tile that is perfect for reflecting light and a natural stone that adds a bit of texture and interest? Mixed medium mosaics are the perfect solution! Techno Brick Nepal Golden Glass offers a mixed medium in earthy tones whereas Fusion Hexagon Steel Mix provides a unique Patten and simple color pallet for those seeking a modern look.
Create a focal point
Contrary to popular belief, you are not restricted to mosaic usage as your backsplash. Using a full tile allows you to expand your choices and incorporate something really unique. Keep the rest of your kitchen simple in color and design and then add Barcelona, Island or Zoe for a real statement piece.
Add some color
Backsplashes are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive. Design your kitchen in simple colors that allow you to change out your backsplash as you feel necessary. Changing your backsplash can change the entire rooms appearance and feel without having to re-do the entire space. Go get inspired now, and send us the photos of your ‘new’ kitchen.
