Kitchen Backsplashes / September 22, 2018 / Anthony Williams.
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.
Mason jars are good for a lot of things when they’re still intact. Cut even when they’re not, you can still find a great use for them. For example, you can make a one-of-a-kind mosaic backsplash for your kitchen using pieces of broken jars. It’s a time-consuming project since you have to press each piece of glass into place and then to level the whole wall but it’s worth the effort.
Most people are after matching stainless steel appliances in their kitchen. Why? Because they look sharp and are central to a modern, updated design. Using stainless steel as the backsplash–either with tiles or a solid sheet–is a continuation of that same feel and creates a sleek, uniform look. The material is easy to wipe clean, doesn’t require grout and will last forever.
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.
