If you are renovating your kitchen, much of your focus would be on the type of cabinetry and the layout of it. Nothing wrong there, but you can also take some time to think about how you want your backsplash to look. Yes, you heard us right. The backsplash serves as a ‘feature wall’ for the kitchen and can help add character and colour to your kitchen – so here are some ideas.
Subway tiles are popular these days with younger couples, as they are stylish and classic at the same time. The tiles are available in a myriad of colours and can be uniquely arranged to create a bespoke backsplash design for your home.
Patterned tiles add more visual impact to your kitchen. You can choose from a range of designs and prints to complement the rest of your kitchen decor.
Mosaic tiles are not just found in old coffee shops in HDB estates, you can use them to up the ‘wow’ factor of your kitchen too! Pick darker colours or those that shimmer under the lights like these diamond mosaic tiles, if you want to create a luxurious look and feel.
If you prefer minimal fuss and cleaning, you might want to opt for tempered glass. Tempered glass is more durable and resistant to high impact and heat as compared to normal glass. If ‘plain’ is not your style – you can choose a backdrop (think chic prints or art deco) and install behind the glass to jazz up the backsplash.
Stainless steel would be a great choice for a sleek and minimalist look. With stainless steel, it would be easy to keep the backsplash clean – all you need is a wipe down.
