The kitchen backsplash is one area in the utilitarian space that lets you play around with colour, patterns and textures. Here are 5 of our favourite backsplash designs that are sure to add some unique character to your prep zone.
- Patterned tiles
Tastefully mismatched patterns in a muted colour palette introduce warmth and fun into the kitchen.
Once white tiles are stained, there’s no going back; pairing simple tessellations with dark colours is both modern and easy to maintain.
- Creative lay
Play up the plain white tiles by laying them in opposite directions for a chic backsplash that only covers one side of the room.
The raw and unfinished look of etched designs on stone-like tiles add subtle interest to a simple monochromatic cooking space.
- Unexpected pairings
Pair traditional European-style tiles with industrial-inspired cement screed for a thoroughly modern take on a classic kitchen.
