So many people that I have spoken with say that they are turned off by white kitchen backsplash ideas because they are too boring, sterile, and devoid of color. I, on the other hand, actually love them. Something about a clean subway tile backsplash is very elegant to me -- it is understated but definitely has a lot of style to it. Simple white geometric tile can go with just about any style or color palette from a quaint farmhouse kitchen to an ultra modern loft space. Even better, I find that subway tile is much easier to clean and maintain than a lot of the more intricate backsplash designs on the market like mosaics, marbles, etc.
The absolutely stunning quilted white kitchen backsplash ideas in this elegant home are such a dramatic show stopper. Although the pattern is done in ultra simple all white, the backsplash tile ideas that they use and the pattern play they experimented with is out of this world and really transforms the kitchen into something so lavish and special. I think that you could do something like this in just about any color palette you may want, and incorporate it alongside just about any decor style. If you decided to go more modern, I would just eliminate the decorative medallion in the center of the range or go with something a bit more sleek.
I thought about incorporating simple white kitchen backsplash ideas like this in our new home, but I don't know if it will be too plain for the space. I tend to gravitate towards simple and uncluttered designs, but I was always nervous that those classic subway tile backsplash ideas that you see everywhere would end up looking too bare in an already minimalistic kitchen. I do love how their backsplash looks in this home, so I guess there could be hope for mine after all. We also have all white cabinets and dark wide plank floors like the home pictured -- I picked out all of those classic white kitchen ideas 2020 that are in just about all of the home decor magazines.
We just moved into this home (the one in these pictures), and I am not a huge fan of the white kitchen backsplash ideas that they used. I get that the homeowners were probably trying to go for that trendy minimalist style, but I think that the kitchen backsplash ideas that they used kind of fell flat. I actually really like the rest of the design in the space (and the rest of the home) -- the white cabinets are ultra modern and fabulous, the chrome and stainless accents amplify the contemporary style, and the lighter floors provide a nice contrast. The backsplash just seems really out of place to me. I am hunting around for kitchen backsplash pictures that may be able to carry over into this design and enhance the style without being too busy for the minimalistic palette.
When in doubt I always look to white kitchen backsplash ideas to finish off a space that I am struggling to find the right tile for the design. Nowadays so many people want these sort of universal style spaces with a sleek modern look combined with warm traditional touches to make the space feel inviting. While this is definitely a fantastic style, it can be hard coming up with the kitchen tiles design because you want to remain pretty neutral for resale purposes, but it is hard to bring a lot of style into an all white space like this. If a traditional white subway tile is not your thing, I would definitely look into marble kitchen tile backsplash ideas like we used here.
I love this unique take on your average white kitchen backsplash ideas -- the metallic accents and fun retro pattern give the mostly traditional space a little something extra. Looking around at so many of the trending backsplash ideas 2020, I was struck by how simplistic most seem. I saw a lot of subway tile, marble herringbone, and maybe a few subtler mosaics, but nothing quite as "in your face" and special like this designer used. I am always hoping for new and exciting things as decor trends change from year to year, but 2020 has disappointed me so far. The kitchen backsplash designs in this home have certainly inspired me though, and I plan to replicate this look (if I can find that stunning tile) for our own makeover project.
