In kitchens and bathrooms, having backsplashes is very important, and if you can make them decorative, they only add to the aesthetic value of the room. The most popular style is plain tiles on the backsplash. There are many shapes in which you could get these tiles cut, and then install them in a desired manner. Putting two or more types of stone tiles together, such as white marble or white porcelain with granite, limestone and slate, can give you the liberty to make color combinations on the backsplash. Shapes such as rectangles, inverted squares, circles, etc. are a few unique designs.
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.
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.
When renovating a kitchen there is absolutely no need to feel like you’re stuck in a rut. There are innumerable possibilities that could be worked with, in order to achieve a lively and zestful look. Playing around with the increasingly popular option of tiles, to work in coordination with those granite countertops that you maybe just got installed is one way to go. You could take your pick from a variety of colors, textures, and shapes of tiles. Feel inspired by what you love, and let that inspiration out, and show your creative side by giving your kitchen that amazing transformation. Have a look at these backsplash designs.
As aforementioned, any type of tile can be used to create a mosaic. However, glass tiles are considered as the best and most efficient ones found in the market today. Glass tiles are available in literally all colors and hence, you will surely get what you look for. As you have a wide choice of colors, your creativity in creating the mosaic will know no bounds. Secondly, glass tiles do not absorb any liquids, spills, etc., and hence, are more durable than their other counterparts. Glass tile backsplash is also easy to clean and maintain. The only disadvantage or drawback associated with this option is that the professional installation cost can be higher as compared to other tiles. Secondly, these tiles are more susceptible to breakage than the other varieties.
There are many varieties of mini glass tiles available, that come in different colors. Choose two complementary colors like sea blue and off white and create a mosaic tile backsplash pattern in your kitchen. During the evenings, when you switch on the lights, this will have a shimmery effect giving a high-end look to the kitchen.
