Backsplash is the new wall art

by Kitchen and Bath Center / July 24, 2018

Are you looking for that “wow” factor in your new kitchen? Consider adding a backsplash that doubles as a work-of-art, literally.

The backsplash is that area of your kitchen wall above the counters and below the upper cabinets or the ventilation hood. Backsplashes started for functional purposes — to keep grease, water, and food splatters from ruining the kitchen walls.

However, today, using the trendiest materials, from ceramic tile to glass, homeowners are turning to artisans and designers who are creating custom backsplashes in images such as Tuscan landscapes, beach scenes, florals, geometric abstracts, vineyard views and much more.

Not into imagery? No problem. Choose tile and stone options that allow you to create subtle texture to your walls, add glimmer and shine, create intricate interlocking designs, create playful or whimsical designs and even add gradients to infuse movement into your walls.

So yes, while white subway tile is undoubtedly an excellent, functional and cost-effective choice for a kitchen backsplash, backsplashes today are limited only by the homeowner’s imagination (and budget). Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
