While tile backsplashes are a durable wall covering that will protect your walls from dirt and water, -mostly found in the kitchen- they do much more than that. A tile backsplash gives that last finish to a kitchen space and unifies its various design elements. When choosing a new backsplash, consider the following tips to incorporate the old and new elements in your space:
• Work with materials that compliment the existing space rather than competing with it; this collaboration will be both aesthetically pleasing and cost-efficient.
• Keep the design simple- “Less is more”: Avoid kitchen backsplashes with too many colors and patterns. Trendier tile colors and patterns may appear nicer at first, but eventually after time, a neutral backsplash will outlast the trends. Make sure that the materials used do not fight with the existing design and space.
• When working with a large space that has multiple areas, maintain a consistent and clean look; this will provide the unison that is needed.
• Mirrored backsplashes can add glamour and style kitchen, reflecting light around a dark kitchen and making the space feel bigger.
• Avoid contrasting colors: doing so with create sharp areas of contrast. By matching the color of the tiles to your kitchen cabinet, you will create an illusion of a more sizable and solid kitchen cabinet.
