You can also install tile backsplash in the form of a mural to add an artistic touch to the kitchen.
While there is no dearth of materials that you could be working with, the key to a tasteful looking kitchen is working with materials that work well in accordance with granite. Some of the best picks in this case would be textures such as stone, marble, or even granite itself. Keeping it natural would definitely be the smartest move. However, if you would like to try your luck with something else, even mosaic tiles, or even glass tiles would work really well. Here’s an idea for all you experimental ones out there too... Go with a little bit of everything, just make sure it stays tasteful, and does not get kitschy. The concept of something more contemporary would also make for some really good backsplash ideas with black granite countertops. That truly is the beauty of black... Its versatility! If you are working with black, you know it always starts with the cliched combination of black and white. A slick black countertop with white going on in the background is as common as common can get, but it also is the best of all available possibilities. If you are choosing to work with ceramic tiles, you can rest assured you’ll have a major selection of colors to pick from, in which case even that fabulous combination of black and red could work wonders.
Purchase glass tiles in a contrasting or complementary color to create a checkered pattern or a diamond pattern in your kitchen. This gives the kitchen a warm ambiance full of old world charm.
One of the most interesting tile patterns for kitchen backsplash is to combine four or five different tiles in a small area, but the tiles should be from the same color family. You might like to pick a decorative tile for the border.
If you are a cooking enthusiast who spends a lot of time in the kitchen, you should certainly think about giving your kitchen a makeover by installing a ceramic tile mural. A tile mural is a design made up of several tiles. Nowadays, you can find amazing hand-painted and kiln-fired decorative ceramic tile murals. If you are not happy with the designs that are available in the market, you needn’t worry. You just need to tell the artist about the design that you have in mind.
The third really great option is one that deals with a natural look, and one that is more in sync with the granite look and feel. The use of ample stone, brick, marble, or even some more granite is one that you just cannot make a mistake with. Depending on the setup that your kitchen is already dealing with, you could opt for any material that has just been mentioned. Stone is a classy option, and is available in a variety of sizes, as well as textures. Even the calacatta mosaic style work really well when in use for a tile backsplash for a kitchen. What works as an advantage with using natural stones is the fact that no matter what the material, they just always work well together. It is very rare to see them look out of place with one another. Luckily, the variety of colors available will also work to your favor, no matter what the color scheme of your kitchen is.
