White is the color which goes with almost everything. However, too much of white can make the space look sterile and uninviting. Hence, when decorating with white make sure you introduce colorful elements so that the space looks balanced. White cabinets in kitchen like black cabinets are a popular choice. White cabinets are a great idea if you wish to brighten up the space. Also, if you have a small kitchen, then addition of white cabinets is good, as the white will reflect a lot of light and create illusion of more space. With such cabinets there are certain elements which you can introduce to complement them. An essential element behind the sink in any kitchen is the backsplash.
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.
If your kitchen is a modern minimalistic one, with a monochromatic color scheme and lot of steel and chrome fittings, then the best tile backsplash idea is to opt for ceramic tiles in an eye-popping color like bright green or purple with a high shine finish. This types of tile backsplash pattern works well for the wall behind the hob and countertop. You can also opt for bright citrus colored glass tiles to give your kitchen a fresh and contemporary look.
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.
You can choose mosaic tiles too. Mosaic tiles add a lot of interest and color to the kitchen and greatly complement the white cabinets. Mosaic tiles come with many varied patterns and designs, you can choose a pattern online or visit your nearest home improvement store. If you are on a tight budget then you can also consider porcelain tile backsplash.
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.
