If your kitchen needs a little boost in the style department, consider updating your backsplash to create a focal point. Most contemporary kitchens have similar looks that will appeal to a large portion of consumers. While keeping with this pattern is a great method for selling your home in the future, sometimes it can be nice to add a little something different to the room’s color palette. An easy way to do that without redesigning the entire kitchen is to draw the eye to the backsplash area. Not only is this an affordable upgrade, it is also a simple fix if your tastes happen to change over time. This type of update will give you a chance to let your personality shine through and give the space a more custom look.
While there are some tried and true classics out there (white subway tile, anyone?), you want to think outside the box to really make the space your own. Try some fun, geometrically-shaped tiles in bright colors. You will still be able to benefit from the easily maintained look of this material without making the room look too dull. Even conventionally shaped tiles with a beautiful running pattern would immediately draw attention to the backsplash area. If the remaining design of the room is predictable in nature, a busy pattern will bring some pizazz to the room. There’s also mini glass tiles in metallic colors which can help bring out the look of stainless steel appliances. Rustic homes can benefit from a brick or stacked stone look. If you do love the subway tile look though, try it in a faux polished wood version. Presented in this way, it will be sure to turn a few heads.
