I have seen where people make tile backsplash pictures out of individual painted pieces as a form of artwork in the kitchen (like in this photo) and am wondering about the longevity of the design. From a style perspective, are these backsplash ideas something that you think will be on trend for awhile or will our kitchen look outdated after a year or two? I would really like to do a fruit design like they used in here, but I also don't want our home to look to cliche or farmhousey. We will keep everything else pretty neutral including the kitchen paint colors, cabinetry, and countertops so that the backsplash will be the main source of color and pattern. Just trying to decide if this is a mistake or not, you know?
Most tile backsplash pictures that I have seen on here are rather unremarkable to be honest. This home, on the other hand, really caught my eye because of the unique material and pattern that they used to offset the grey cabinetry and countertops. Normally you would think to do plain white subway tile so as not to add more grey to the mix, but I love the use of glass subway tile throughout the kitchen tiles design to add another layer and dimension to the whole thing. It is a very subtle grey shade that is just above white, but still adds a little something that you could not gain otherwise. Plus, if you look closely at the kitchen backsplash photos, you will see a lovely herringbone detail behind the range that, again, just elevates the whole thing.
A lot of people have told me that they love all of the metallic tile that we have behind our range (as seen in the tile backsplash pictures I posted) but I am just not a fan of it. With that being said though, I really have no idea what I would use to replace it. The rest of the kitchen (and our home in general) is quite traditional with some English Tudor influences. I have tried googling backsplash tile ideas for traditional homes or for Tudor homes but, not surprisingly, I have not had much success. I even thought about just ripping the tile out and patching the wall, but I was not sure if we need to be concerned about cooking without tile in the back. I would love some input if anybody has some bright ideas on what kind of kitchen backsplash tile we should use in here. I would definitely be all ears.
The one thing that I have noticed after looking at so many tile backsplash pictures on here, is that the latest trend seems to be taking the tile all the way to the ceiling (rather than stopping midway). I actually love those kitchen tile ideas because they make the room look far more complete without the weird stopping point that you usually see. Not only is it beautiful but, think about it, it makes basically the entire kitchen so much easier to clean if all of the walls can essentially be wiped down. I am using these kitchen backsplash designs as my inspiration, and I am going to rip out all of our old stuff in order to replace it all with marble bricks. I am so excited to see how this turns out and may even post some photos once we are done.
Out of all of the tile backsplash pictures that I have looked at so far, this one may be my favorite mostly because of the simplicity. Usually I do not gravitate towards stone as a material, but something about the nice geometric square tiles and the tan hue that they have really stands out in a these backsplash designs. I think that it is a nice contrast against the neutral cabinets and countertops, and provides more of an interesting look than say a subway tile would have. This home has definitely inspired me to think a little bit more creatively about what we are going to add in our kitchen, and maybe look down some aisles at the tile shop that I may have disregarded before. Its actually pretty cool to see how something as seemingly insignificant as kitchen backsplash ideas can really have a big effect on the room.
I have been looking through scores of tile backsplash pictures on here in hopes of getting some sort of inspiration for how to handle this kitchen. We have a pretty unique home as far as architecture, with a lot of rustic elements like exposed brick walls and archways, wood beams on the ceiling, and a lot of beautiful metal trim and fixtures. All of those things are wonderful and definitely sold the house for me, but there are a few items (like this backsplash) that I definitely want to change. I have been looking through kitchen backsplash pictures on here, but I really can't figure out what would pair with all of the beige stone around the range and entry way. White seems too stark and beige would not stand out enough. I may actually start looking at bathroom tile ideas to see if they offer anything better as far as inspiration.
