Everyone wants to have a remarkable and memorable house and since the kitchen is the heart of the home, people tend to gravitate to unique kitchen designs. But how do you travel down that fine line of unique and “over the top”? We’ve outlined ten unique backsplashes that will add visual interest to your kitchen and the stone countertops to pair them with to create a cohesive design without going overboard.
1. Hammered Copper Tiles
We absolutely love this blend of natural material fabricated in a contemporary way. These tiles create visual interest but remain warm and inviting.
This is a new and innovative way of using a natural stone countertops as a backsplash. The stone adds a classic, luxurious feel while the tile’s chevron placement gives the kitchen a bright, modern feeling. This kitchen, completed my Maya Construction in Chicago, is perfect for new homeowners looking to pair the preferred kitchen material with the newest design trends.
If you love everything about the beach, you’re sure to love this unique backsplash. The texture and neutral colors mean you can decorate with any accents you desire.
Our Countertop Suggestion:
Take the color from one of the pebbles and match it in your countertop. This creates a cohesive look and doesn’t take away from the incredible texture added by the tiny stones. Try Silestone’s Nymbus or Caesarstone Quartz Linen.
7. Black and White Family Photos
Ok, we think this is really cool. Try blowing up a vintage family photo, making it waterproof and using it as your backsplash. This is perfect for families who have a history of eating, cooking and laughing together for generations.
