Kitchen Backsplashes / June 28, 2018 / Darrence Miller.
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.
The kitchen backsplash is placed on the kitchen wall between the countertops and the wall cabinets. It is meant to protect the walls from staining, especially in the zones close to your sink and stove, the places where you cook, clean, and prepare food. While your backsplash might stain, the materials it is made from will be very easy to clean and maintain.
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.
If you really want to add some eye-catching focal points with personality to your house, I suggest you to pay close attention to this project. In this kitchen of repurposed cabinets, the powerful collage of colored elements automatically draws your focus. This stunning mosaic backsplash is made entirely of mixed tiles. The idea and project is really simple but the finished result is fantastic. Cheap and simple, what’s not to like?
