New Kitchen Tile Backsplash In Your Plans? 5 Ideas
If a new kitchen tile backsplash is what you decided on because you’re sick of the same old “bisque” look in your kitchen tile, then I have 5 ideas for you. Get your kitchen up to date with a modern feel that still includes tile, but doesn’t look like you just threw up a few blocks of color on the wall. Making the right selection for a kitchen tile backsplash will help you tie in contemporary appliances and updated counter tops for a completely modernized kitchen.
New Kitchen Tile Backsplash Ideas
Glass tiles: You might think using glass for your new kitchen tile backsplash is awkward; that it only belongs in a bathroom. But if so, think again. Glass gives contemporary kitchens a dazzling look that you could never hope to achieve with heavier glazed tiles. Clear glass goes well with white cabinets while glass in the browns and jewel tones integrates nicely with decorative cabinets. Glass is also an ideal look with shiny counter tops, like granite and marble.
Mosaic tiles: Who says a new kitchen tile backsplash has to be monochromatic, or that the kitchen can’t be colorful all around? Mix up the styles and colors with mosaic tiling. Add a third variety ,size , for a combination of tiles that look truly artisan. You might not want every tiled section to feature the mosaic pattern, however, so you might choose a more softened yet tasteful look for the bulk of the kitchen and merely accent with mosaic tiles in certain areas, like above the stove and in the tile backsplash behind the sink. Use your imagination and input from those whose ideas you value, in order to get different possible designs to explore with your new kitchen tile backsplash.
Tiny tiles: Want the complete opposite of beige bisque tiles? Choose an assortment of one-inch tiles in six different colors. Select a few light colors, like white and tan, then sprinkle in darker tones, like navy, purple or green. Once you choose this base color, add some hues that are from the same palette so everything coordinates with your new kitchen tile backsplash. Then, make a randomized pattern out of the tiles, so you never become bored of the same features. This is one of my favorite design tactics.
Brick tiles: Bring a little bit of the outdoors inside with brick-shaped tiles. These tiles, which come in far more colors than just stone-like brick, alone, can give your new kitchen tile backsplash the look of a bright sunny garden in green and yellow, or a mansion with dark brown tiles. This look is ideal if you don’t mind a lot of grout around the tiles. While this kitchen tile backsplash doesn’t call for nearly as much grout as real bricks that need lots of mortar, the overall look is still the same, so bear that in mind if you select this tile design.
Selecting Kitchen Tile Backsplash Patterns
Patterns: Creating a modern look with your kitchen tile backsplash is as simple as skipping ordinary colors and instead, going for a look with lots of texture, irregular patterns and a combination of tile sizes, depending on your preferences. You may feel a bit like you’re going out on a limb, but trust your own creative instincts and avail yourself of the input from trusted friends. When it’s done you and your family will have many hours of joyful conversation in the beautiful space created with their help. Of course, if you have definite ideas of your own by all means- Go for it! Have fun with your new kitchen tile backsplash!
