Make A Statement With Your Backsplash

Gone are the days of backsplashes intentionally toned down only to be washed out by cabinets and countertops. It’s time to give your kitchen life with a splash of color or texture. A simple subway tile laid in a new pattern or even a fun tile with texture like Moroccan tile is sure to make your guests’ heart flutter.

When building a new home, you are giving yourself a very unique and special opportunity to put your personal stamp on a space that will last for years to come. The choices you make will surround you every day. Backsplash is a fun, yet small way to add a touch of individuality in your space. After all it’s just that, YOUR space!

Don’t feel limited when it comes to the dreams you have for that pop of something in your kitchen. For years ceramic tile has been the standard for backsplashes everywhere, but there are many options that can creatively set your kitchen apart from the rest. Things like reclaimed wood, stainless steel or even stacked stone can create beautiful variation.

Three Backsplashes I’m currently loving..

Subway tile in a herringbone pattern or paired with a high contrast grout can be especially visually pleasing.

Moroccan tile can be very versatile as well, depending on color and grout contrast it can be very subtle and polished or artsy and vibrant.

A shiplap backsplash is timeless, clean and can be paired with a variety of interior looks.
