Whether you’re remodeling your entire or kitchen or just looking to refresh the space, we’ve narrowed down a few different kitchen backsplash ideas.
A more dramatic look for a kitchen backsplash might be the next idea we present here. The amount of surface texture created with this project is amazing. The eye-catching wall of stacked pebbles fits wonderfully in the natural lakeside style of the owner’s kitchen. If you want to create a backsplash like this and ensure your efforts result in the same finished look, you need to use only small pebbles which are roughly all an identical size. To keep the very natural appearance of the wall and avoid a heavy set in look, do not use visible grout around each stone, just enough on the hidden end to create floating stacks of pebbles. Keep it real, keep it natural.
Any kind of backsplash can look good if you know how to install it. For example, this glass tile mosaic has a random pattern and the tiles interlock like pieces of a puzzle. In a way, this makes it easy to get an overall cohesive look. So here’s how you install them. First mix up the mortar. Apply it with a trowel and gradually press the tiles in. keep going one row at a time. Mosaic tiles are one of the easiest to install because they’re small in height and because of the random pattern.
Want your backsplash to reflect your passion for traveling around the world? Or perhaps you simply find the idea interesting. Either way, a map backsplash is a really original and wonderful idea. It’s pretty much like applying wallpaper except you’re using maps. Similarly, you ca also use pages from magazines, comic books or wrapping paper.
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 mosaic backsplash can look interesting even without any upper cabinets. Depending on the way it interacts with the rest of the wall and with the countertop, the contrast can be strong or very faint and almost nonexistent.
