Five Friday Favs!
Happy Friday! We're going in a bit different direction this afternoon and featuring our five fave Kitchen backsplash styles.
If you hop on over to our Instagram feed you'll see that we're currently working on pulling together a full home design for a large presentation next week and are really focusing in on the Kitchen today, including pulling backsplash tile, lighting, furniture, plumbing and finish options.
I've said it before and I'll say it again... designing a Kitchen is one of absolutely favorite spaces of the home to design. It is such a special and central area in the home and the possibilities are truly endless. This particular client is going for a clean, classic look with white cabinets and lots of grey and silver tones mixed in with some natural elements for an overall warm, welcoming, family-friendly feel.
Can't wait for you all to share the final product!
One our favorite Kitchen backsplash options is a slab backsplash. This can be achieved by either continuing the same stone countertop material also up the wall or by using a contrasting stone that perhaps has a gorgeous vein detail or something more solid for a more clean, contemporary feel. I have featured the Kitchen above by Dana Lynch Design, but you can also click on the photo for more from Becki Owens and a blog post where she featured "Design Trends 2018."
A mosaic or pattered backsplash tile is another great option, and what we are considering for the Kitchen we are currently working on. Patterned tile is so in right now and can really add a fun, unique twist to the Kitchen... whether it be neutral or in color. They can be made of stone, ceramic, glass, etc.

Next up... a metal/metallic backsplash. This is definitely best applied in a more contemporary, sleek Kitchen, but can be a great way to add depth and brightness to the space and is usually easy maintenance as well.

Mirror mirror on the wall.... are you the best backsplash of them all?! Yes, that's right... mirror! Whether it is clear, smoked, bronzed, antiqued, etc., mirror can be a beautiful Kitchen backsplash detail. It may be a bit harder to keep clean, but will open up your space and help it feel larger and more expansive.

Last but not least, subway tile. The trusty ole simple, classic subway tile that works with almost every style, budget and color. This backsplash option is easy on the wallet, easy maintenance and installation, but still gives the Kitchen that extra decorative edge/element. I especially love the unique way they incorporated subway tile into the Kitchen above with just three rows of tile and than an interesting painted finish (or perhaps even wall covering?) above. Click on the photo for more. We went with white subway tile in our own Kitchen and love the result. You can mix it with dark or light grout for different looks and nowadays they make many kinds of subway tile, from smooth to beveled to handmade and more.
We're envisioning a patterned waterjet mosaic for this particular Kitchen backsplash. Here are a few options we have pulled from Artistic Tile and Waterworks.... What do you think???
