Make a Splash with a Kitchen Backsplash!

Kitchen Backsplash Roundup A new kitchen backsplash can liven up the dullest of kitchens and bring unity to a disjointed space.  From colorful glazed tiles to Moroccan patterned Cement, the choices are endless. Geometric Shaped Tiles Geometric Shaped and Patterned Tiles are a big trend in interiors right now.   Using a Geometric shaped tile brings instant cool to a space.  I like the Tex Tile designed by Israeli born, London Based Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges Studio - www.raw-edges.com for Mutina - www.mutina.it/en/, a tile manufacturing company in Fiorano, Italy.  Tex Tile is available in the U.S. at Stone Source - Stone Source  Mural Tile by Heath Ceramics can be found here - Heath Ceramics [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="5082,5081"] Patterned Cement Tiles Cement Tiles are a great choice for many reasons.  They're sturdy, they have a matte finish and are available in a variety of different styles and patterns.  Adding a sliver or wall of patterned tiles is a much more economical way of achieving the look of a custom designed tile mural or mosaic.  There are many excellent companies that manufacture Cement Tiles.   The Cement Tile Shop manufactures Encaustic Cement Tiles by hand.  They offer a variety of different color combinations and patterns.  The Encaustic process uses dye in the cement as opposed to the glaze overlay.  This allows for much more accurate color matching.  The Cuban Tropical Tile Company is another great source for Cement Tiles with a wide selection of amazing patterned tiles.  Mosaic House  based out of New York, is another great source for cement tiles as illustrated with their Snowbank Moroccan Cement Tile backsplash. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="5089,5090,5091,5087"] Solid Colored Tile Backsplash Whether you're going for a more traditional or modern look, a solid colored backsplash can add a nice pop to your kitchen.  You can pick the color up elsewhere or have it stand alone.  I'm partial to green at the moment. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="5096,5095"] Marble Backsplash Marble has been a go to for years.  Again, it works in contemporary spaces to boho chic to more traditional depending on the marble you select and how you use it. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="5100,5099,5102,5101"] Herringbone Patterned Backsplash Right side up or turned on its side, a Herringbone Patterned Backsplash is both classy and hip. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="5104,5105"] Brick Backsplash For my final entry, the Brick Backsplash.  Tried and true, painted or au natural, a brick backsplash will bring texture and depth to your kitchen.  I'm partial to white painted brick or really old natural brick. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="5106,5107"] That does it for my kitchen backsplash round up.  I hope you found inspiration you can apply to your own kitchen.   Cheers!   www.cityofzdesign.com
