Everyone has their own opinion related to marble as a material suitable for interior decor, especially in the kitchen. The marble backsplash is especially eye-catching. As any other material, marble has both pros and cons and we’ll get to those in a minute.
Adding a splash of color to your décor is always a welcomed way to make the environment brighter, but in a kitchen too much color could overwhelm the room. So, what might be a good DIY possibility? That’s right, a backsplash! This project presents a very cool idea for protecting your walls from unwanted stains while animating the light in the environment. The choice made by this home owner was for a kitchen backsplash made of glass.
Mosaic backsplashes don’t always feature well-defined patterns. Some rely on the overall texture and finish such as in the case of this glamorous kitchen where the backsplash extends to cover a larger portion of the wall.
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.
This type of design is simple and versatile enough to look good in a variety of different settings. The traditional setup presented here is not the only option. Imagine the same backsplash in a more modern décor and combined with other colors.
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.
