Whether you like it or not, there are some areas of a house that the lady of the house has ever right over, and she should be able to treat it the way she would like to. The kitchen is one such space. Rightfully, since it inevitably is the women who spend maximum time in there, they should have all the freedom in the world to decorate it to reflect their personality, as well as suit their taste. Get a few ideas for things you could do in order to work well with granite countertops.
If you are having trouble choosing from the vast array of tile backsplash patterns, get inspired from the designs that you find appealing while going through your favorite interior decoration magazines. Keeping a cutting of such designs will help you in understanding what kind of patterns you prefer and whether it can be incorporated in your kitchen.
Although having the same tile as that on the entire wall is a common and preferable backsplash idea, you can go for the mosaic pattern if you wish to create a unique look in your kitchen. A mosaic pattern appears dramatic and attractive. Variety of tiles can be used for creating mosaic backsplashes for kitchens. One of the advantages of mosaic backsplashes is that they are easy to clean and maintain. When exposed to spills they are less likely to discolor than ordinary or plain tiles. Secondly, you have a choice in tiles, shapes, colors, to be used for the mosaic. As the backsplash is limited to a fairly smaller area, you can limit your art and creativity, without creating a gaudy pattern in the entire kitchen.
If you combine dark-colored tiles in a glossy or a semi gloss finish with lighter toned cabinets and kitchen walls, it creates a very sober and sophisticated look. For example, you can go with chocolate-brown or deep rust colored tile for your kitchen backsplash.
The last but surely not the least, is the excellent stacked stone tile look, which is one of my favorite backsplash ideas. The stacked stone designs are usually consists an element of color to single walls in living rooms or on patios. In the stacked stone idea, the tiles are rectangular in nature with uneven widths, and are installed with rough edges popping out of the wall. The plain countertops built below the backsplash accentuate the coarse look of stacked stone tiles. Installing lights over these backsplash ideas, can brighten up the cooking or washing area of the room.
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.
