Mosaics are a beautiful way to accent your backsplash. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors and textures, rhymes and reasons. And even better, there are lots of options to incorporate mosaics or accents of any style into your backsplash design!
Many people are afraid to commit to their favorite color – be it red, or green, or fuscia – in a kitchen remodel, for fear of disswaying future potential buyers. So we understand why most people decide against the racing-car-red cabinets and lime green countertops! When it comes to resale, most people air on the side of neutral for the best future compatibility of potential buyers. But the backsplash is a fun and easy way to break that rule, just a little!
For the higher ticket elements of your new kitchen, maybe hold back from the torquiose (though that’s not a written-in-stone rule – we’ve seen it work beautifully!!). Maybe instead consider incorporating a pop of color into the backsplash design with either a listello, pendant, or full accent wall mosaic.
The backsplash can add that extra element to tie the kitchen together, relating the countertop and the cabinetry together in a more formalized palette. It’s also an opportunity to express yourself a little more – have some fun! You can add variety with color (think a neutral background with dark green pops to match your countertop), with texture (consider glass tiles for added shine or tumbled stone for a softer, natural look), or a break from the ordinary (mother of pearl, metal, or exotic onyx anyone?).
The sky is the limit when it comes to options for your backsplash!
