Backsplash tiles are, more or less, a sort of armor that goes along the wall behind such fixtures as a counter, sink or a stove. They generally make cleaning easier as they protect the wall from splashes of water. The typical backsplash for a bathroom or kitchen is a tiled border of about 18 inches. However, within this space is a world of design options that can let your creative muse run wild!
As the barrier between two spaces, backsplash tiles in your kitchen or bathroom have the potential to be creative, as well as complement the surrounding fixtures. Alternatively, you can even go your own way and craft an entirely new visual space. Centura Tile has compiled a list of some of the best tile options when it comes to designing your unique backsplash:
Glass tiles are perfect for backsplashes since they're water-resistant as well as resilient to mold and mildew. The unique glaze and sheen that glass provides is perfect for creating specialized airs that evoke oceanic colours or sea-glass themes. Look to our solid glass tiles, Blended Glass Mosaics for a bead-like appearance that stimulates the eyes, or our Little Brick stone and glass mixed mosaics. Consider Centura’s vast selections of glass backsplash tiles that include clear, black, brown, blue, and white colour variations, mixes of different materials like glass, metal and stone, and mosaic styles that will impress guests.
Tried and true, ceramic is a great backsplash tile for both the kitchen and bathroom. Ceramic tile is beautiful and simple to maintain, and includes a multitude of styles and textures. From smooth and bright to dark and layered, ceramic enables unparalleled customization, especially when you choose from brands like Chez Moi, Ardesia, Alhambra, Zanzibar, Streamline, Patagonia and more. As one of the more customizable tiling types, ceramic is perfect for when you have a special design or pattern in mind.
While a bit more involved than other materials, using stone for a backsplash tile offers a natural tone and texture that is impossible to replicate and is sure to leave a unique impression on visitors. The Coevo/Tasso line, for instance, uses a blend of shades to craft stunning textured images in dark, light, and mixed shades that make them a wonderful addition to any bathroom or kitchen backsplash.
