Kitchen Backsplash Design

Posted on: December 20, 2011

Though often overlooked by homeowners in the kitchen design process, a backsplash can truly enhance your kitchen and add beautiful, creative touches. The right kitchen backsplash can enliven your cabinets and countertops and give the room personality. Does your dream kitchen include a beautiful backsplash design?

The Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia area kitchen designers at Jack Rosen can make sure your kitchen backsplash seamlessly complements your room and makes the right kind of statement!

Kitchen Backsplash Basics

Traditionally, kitchen backsplashes were limited to behind the cooktop and/or sink. A backsplash is a tiled area on the walls of your kitchen, usually behind prep areas (cooking range, sink, etc.). Its purpose is to not only provide protection from scratches and splashes from the sink but to also enhance the appearance of your kitchen. A backsplash can be used for aesthetic purposes!

Focal backsplashes: as the name suggests, focal backsplashes act as a focal point. The design is important. Many focal backsplashes use a featured design that is surrounded by tiles or some kind of border.

Full backslashes: these types of backsplashes can make the room appear larger. They feature a repeating pattern or some kind of image (many backsplashes display a landscape).

Kitchen Backsplash Design

There are a variety of materials to use for your kitchen backsplash, including metal, glass, marble, ceramic tile – you name it! However, many more things than material need to be considered. When it comes to backsplash design, our kitchen designers can also help you choose the right:

  • Size
  • Colors
  • Theme

If you have a Tuscan kitchen, for instance, a natural stone or ceramic tile backsplash with yellow, red and tan shades would look good. A modern-looking metal backsplash design wouldn’t look as natural. Professional kitchen designers can ensure your backsplash design will seamlessly integrate with the overall design of your kitchen.
