If you thought your cabinet or countertop decisions were silly, wait until it’s time to choose backsplash tiles and patterns. Without proper guidance, you can find yourself stuck in a perpetual loop of indecision. This is especially true for those who do not opt for the one-color base layout.
but, Choose a new tile pattern for your kitchen backsplash It can become overwhelming, especially with too many options available. This is where a professional kitchen remodeling service can help. They understand kitchen design inside out and can help you choose a pattern that complements your style and kitchen structure.
2. Offset the square into a diamond
Another option is to use square tiles or subway tiles, but place them diagonally (to create a diamond shape) and stagger them slightly for added interest. Here is an example of the Kitchen Magic Design Gallery.
3. Make a chevron bold
Chevron patterns have been a favorite of artisans for thousands of years and are constantly being incorporated into home design and textiles. Check out this traditional Brentwood kitchen backsplash. Beautiful turquoise tiles are showcased using his version of this herringbone. The chevron layout makes a striking statement and works with both solid or multicolored tiles (explained in the example below).
4. Use them together
You don’t have to limit yourself to a single wall tile layout. In this traditional San Francisco kitchen, the homeowner chose a straight-line installation for the majority of the backsplash and a vertical chevron pattern surrounded by round trim pieces for the area behind the stove top. .
5. Same tiles, different sizes
Take a peek into this Mediterranean kitchen design and you’ll see how different sizes of the same tile can be placed to achieve a pattern effect. This includes using focal designs. He can set the focal design once, or repeat it multiple times throughout the backsplash as needed. A great option for long kitchen layouts as it breaks the monotony.
6. Incorporate squares and rectangles
Just as tiles of different sizes are interesting, so are tiles with slightly different shapes. The combination of wide squares and narrow rectangles makes this contemporary kitchen design backsplash look like a geometric work of art.
7. Tie a ribbon around the backsplash
If the plain white subway tiles are a little boring, consider adding a band or two of small coordinating tiles. In the Barnwood kitchen pictured below, the homeowner decided to do just that. Blending neutrals in the sheer ribbons of tile brings the colors of the cabinets and countertops together, bringing the whole design together very well.
8. Patterns by color
As you consider all the different ways to arrange your backsplash tiles in a pattern, keep in mind that color can be just as influential as shape. You can take advantage of tiles of different colors by patterning tiles of the same shape by color. The Washington, DC kitchen below grabs everyone’s attention with its eye-catching chevron pattern in earthy greens and browns.
9. Think vertically, not horizontally
Most homeowners associate a backsplash with a horizontal layout, which is wise for those with small or cramped kitchens. But in today’s open-concept kitchens, a vertical layout might be more appealing. I love how the vertical tile layout in this modern Chicago kitchen adds a fluid, multi-color movement to the design.
10. Cascade color by scallop
Scalloped tiles offer an area of backsplash potential. This contemporary home in Vancouver showcases the best of it, with white tiles mottled, intertwined, and cascading into a blue-green sea. Scalloped tiles might not be considered a “normal” shape, but the concept could work with a variety of tile shapes. For example, square and vertical rectangular tiles look great in this style of composition.
