Kitchens can either be a beautiful social area for your family, or a dreaded space that looks disorganized and messy. When renovating your home, there are many design adjustments you can make to transform the space to achieve your desired look. One trend homeowners are enjoying is kitchen backsplash tiles. Not only does this tile trend make the room look unique and eye-catching, kitchen tile itself is much easier to clean—when you splash the spaghetti sauce while cooking, you can simply wipe the mess away! Here are some beautiful backsplash tile options that homeowners are loving in 2017.
Antique Wood-Look Mosaic
There’s nothing like the warm and cozy feeling of walking into a log cabin, and you can achieve this cottage-like atmosphere with antique wood-look mosaic tiles. Your entire kitchen can look like a cabin getaway with the use of these tiles, along with outdoor lanterns, wooden-framed photographs on the walls, small plants around the sink, and plaid table cloths on the table. You can completely transform your home into this cozy and rustic style and it all starts with a good wood-look tile. From King Wood to Etic, there are endless options available to achieve whichever wood-look you desire.
Creative Glass Mosaic
Mosaic tiles give spaces a vintage and retro look. The pattern and colour options are endless, so you can customize your kitchen backsplash to achieve any desired look. If you have renovated the rest of your kitchen, or if you’re happy with the one you already have, there is a glass mosaic tile pattern for you. Some stunning examples include Subway Squares, which feature brick-like rectangles; Penny Round, which creates a unique pixelated look to the walls; Onix, which features a mixture of light to dark tiles that together, look cinematic and beautiful; and Block Mix, which is a look of its own.
Decorative Backsplash Tile
Since many homeowners want their living space to be unique, alternative backsplash materials are coming into play. Instead of using simple and monotonous designs and colours, some homeowners are catching onto the trend of using decorative metal pieces, which are found in collections like Magical, Geom, and Facetado. Metals like copper, aluminum, and zinc are added to tiles like these to bring out a full metal backsplash.
Play with Colours
When adding a kitchen backsplash, there are no limits to how creative you can get. Going for an oceanic look? Try out green and blue scale-shaped tiles for an aquatic experience. Masia is a unique tile that looks like its coated in a sheet of water, which would go perfectly for this theme. Looking for stone-like colours and textures that almost feel real? There are tumbled marble backsplashes available.
Keep it Classic
While all of these options are unique and stylish, some homeowners are happy with keeping things classic and simple. A classic white marble look is a stunning and elegant option, that works with any home décor and makes the kitchen look bright and clean. Black or dark grey tiles also achieve this effect, and with a glossy finish, they reflect light nicely and illuminate the space.
