Certain types of marble, such as the Emperador which comes from Spain, are ideal for high-traffic areas and fireplace surrounds. Still, their unique color tones can also be used to give a kitchen backsplash a stand-out look. This particular type has grains with irregular veins which makes each tile unique and offers the opportunity to create interesting patterns.
A design that would suit well a contemporary kitchen is this one. It’s simple, abstract and versatile enough to look wonderful in a variety of settings. The fact that it matches the countertop helps with the cohesion of the décor.
Ever considered simply painting your backsplash without actually using anything else? You can pretty much create any pattern and design you want. In this case, a herringbone pattern was chosen. To make something similar, you need a lot of tape. Decide on a size for your painted tiles. Then make tiny pencil marks on the wall to know where the grout lines should go. After that, make the horizontal lines and start taping and painting. It’s tricky and you need lots of spare time for a project like this but it’s also really original.
