Kitchen Backsplashes / July 1, 2018 / Ethan Moore.
While the palette is broad, our experts agree that the season’s tile trends pivot around pattern, shape and texture. Joshua Earp, marketing manager at ; consultant Jessica Bird; and Rachel Gilding, communications and design specialist at , reveal some of the most important tile trends of the moment, and how you can use them in your home.
One of the easiest, most fun and versatile ideas is to have a chalkboard backsplash. That’s because it’s easy to get right since all you have to do is paint the wall and let it dry. Then you can customize it however you want and you’ll never get bored of it. And even if you choose not to write anything on the wall, it will still look great.
Glass backsplashes are quickly becoming more popular in kitchen design for a number of reasons: they’re inexpensive, modern, low maintenance and easy to customize. Glass offers a seamless, uninterrupted surface that has the added bonus of reflecting light, which helps to brighten up the room.
Tile is ever-changing, and today’s latest trends, driven in part by new manufacturing methods and printing technologies, are opening up a whole new world of covetable looks. We’re seeing a push toward new and innovative ways of combining different products, using tiles to create bold geometric shapes or to evoke an understated luxury with soft, organic lines and nature-inspired textures.
