Trend #6. All Colors Welcome
Gina Sims Kitchen
Feel like a mermaid with these scale-looking green tiles.
Most people are used to neutral (white, gray or beige) backsplash colors. But now you can get tiles in almost any color you want. From divine black to splashy yellow, anything goes.
The backsplash is a good opportunity to introduce personal style a surprising pop of color in the kitchen will just do that. If you want to convey luxury, go for black or charcoal grey tiles. The contrast from surrounding elements such as the cabinetry and countertops will create the luxurious drama desired. Make sure you have a good lighting plan, in place, so you can see the beauty. If you want an airy feel to your kitchen, good ole white will work just perfectly though you might want to consider a contrasting grout color for an unexpected twist.
A blue-tiled backsplash introduces a homey feeling. It makes the kitchen feel like a happy yet cool and relaxing place. If you want a burst of energy whenever your eyes drift to the backsplash area, go for red or yellow tiles. If you are feeling creative, combine two or three colors for a nice feature to your work area. A green band at the bottom of the backsplash and a white half that stretches to the ceiling results in a simple yet creative alternative.
Now is the perfect time to experiment with new styles and colors. Try a color you would have never even considered and see the magic happen right before your eyes. If you are feeling hesitant, you can always introduce the new color in one or two lines or in individual tiles scattered throughout the backsplash.
