4 Creative Backsplash Ideas For Your Kitchen

Business Blog

Many people have basic tiles as a backsplash, and these are perfectly functional. However, with kitchen designs becoming more and more varied, some people try to design a backsplash to be the focal point of the kitchen. If you are looking for a way to make the backsplash one of the main design points of your kitchen, here are some unique ideas to consider.

1. Thin brick panels. 

If you're hoping for an industrial, rustic, or bistro look, a brick backsplash is a cool way to make a statement. Because you need the look of real brick, you can get thin brick panels that are made with real bricks, but cut thinly so they can be installed like tiles. When the backsplash is done, your wall will look just like an exposed brick wall. For added dramatic flair, make the wall behind the stove and up behind your fume hood brick as well. A company like The Best Panel Company can give you more information.

2. Wooden tiles.

Many people like wood-look tiles, but some take it a step further by installing actual wood tiles. If sufficiently waterproofed, a wooden backsplash can add a sense of warmth and beauty to a kitchen. Since wood can burn or mark easily, however, it's best to integrate the wood with a few tiles that can extend along the wall behind the stove. The combination of wood and tile will look unique and beautiful.

3. Stones.

Instead of tiles, you can embrace the rustic feel of a backwoods cabin be installing a real fieldstone backsplash. The stones will be cut flat so they can be installed in pebbly panels and filled in with grout, but the fronts will have the varied look of rocks poking out from the wall, as if the wall itself was built from stones like an antique hearth. Paired with natural wooden cabinets and a farmhouse floor, you'll take a trip to centuries gone by. 

4. Concrete

Concrete is taking the design world by storm with flooring, countertops, and even walls and roofs. However, concrete can also work as your backsplash. A concrete artisan can spread thin concrete over the wall and stamp, stain, and seal the concrete with patterns, colors, and sheen. A concrete backsplash leaves open a world of possibilities -- you could have an antique looking floral design, or a cutting edge dark-stained marble finish. Concrete cleans well, lasts a long time, and need very little maintenance.

You can enjoy a trendy kitchen with a one of a kind backsplash.
