We love our kitchens. We spend so much time in them creating meals and memories with people that we love. So it only makes sense that like the food we cook in them our kitchens should be a reflection of creativity and happiness.
Mosaics and Focal Points The biggest real estate for a focal point is behind the stove. Create focal points by changing up the pattern or color scheme of your materials whether that’s laying tile at an angle or mixing and matching complimentary colors. And if you’re on a budget splurge on that stove-top wall and use a less expensive material everywhere else.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous however which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
