Each one is special in its own way and offers something different. And every single idea in here is one that promises to uplift the style quotient of your kitchen instantly!
Going Down the Marble Route
The marble backsplash in the kitchen is an idea that leaves everyone impressed. Latest kitchen models from some of the biggest makers across the world have started to embrace natural stone in the last few years. This makes the marble backsplash even more apt in the contemporary kitchen and it gives you a ‘blank canvas’ or sorts that allows other bright colors, metallic accents and smart features to make a bigger visual impact. Marble backsplashes are easy to clean and maintain with their natural imperfections and pattern elevating the overall narrative.
Lively Pattern that Comes Alive
Pattern in the kitchen is generally not overused because you already have all the kitchenware, appliances and cabinets creating different ‘visual pockets’. But in the large and minimal kitchen with a curated, contemporary look, the patterned backsplash is a fun and lively choice that makes sense. New tile patterns with 3D effect and hexagonal motifs are the most popular options in this category. These tiles can be used either in neutral colors like white and gray or come in brighter, colorful options that venture beyond the mundane. Choose a backsplash here that fits in perfectly with the overall theme and style of the open plan kitchen.
Beautiful Back-Painted Glass
The back-painted glass backsplash is nothing new or revolutionary in itself. But it still is a choice that constantly sits at the top end of the trends charts because of its uncluttered look and ease of maintenance. Adding color while shaping a backsplash that is easy to clean, the back-painted glass surfaces can be used in kitchens of every style. From brilliant red and vivacious violet to understated gray and mellow yellow, the options here are endless indeed.
