DARING KITCHEN BACKSPLASHES


Backsplashes for kitchens come in limitless options—whether you want to be adventurous or you prefer something neutral. The backsplash is a great place to go bold because it’s a small amount of real estate in your kitchen and won’t be overwhelming. It adds personality and customization to your design for little time and money. 
 
For inspiration, explore these five bold kitchen backsplashes.

BOLD AND BLACK

Black backsplash tile looks great when used in a modern design. Consider a larger subway wall tile for spacious kitchens or lots of countertop. Remember to check out coordinating trim to add pristine edges and corners to your design.
 
For backsplashes for kitchens with farmhouse style that feature wood fixtures or furnishings, the bold outline of a black backsplash lends a contemporary feel to the design. If you decide to go with a black backsplash, you should also consider pairing it with a gray floor tile to harmonize the look.

MULTICOLORED

If you need a pop of color, consider going with a multicolored backsplash tile. Bright-colored mosaic tile can brighten up a space and add dimension. Rather than trying to come up with a color scheme from scratch, base the whole design around a favorite mosaic tile blend.

NEUTRALS

Even a neutral colored tile can be dramatic. For instance, a glass mosaic, metallic tile, or neutral mosaic with mirror accents are all neutral in color but make a bold statement in your design. The reflected light from these tiles make them ideal for kitchen backsplashes in darker rooms.

PATTERNS & SHAPES

Patterned kitchen backsplashes are hot right now. A geometric pattern or even a floral, encaustic-style design becomes the center of attention and a visually dramatic design element that sets your design apart from other backsplashes for kitchens. 

A unique shape also draws attention. Go for a curvy lantern shape or pencil-thin linear shape, even an angular picket will do the trick.
