Backsplashes: Add A Little Personality in Your Kitchen!

Michelle Moore, Atlanta Studio Consultant

One of the most popular spots to infuse individual style into your new home is the kitchen backsplash. Yes, this is a focal point of one of your most important rooms, and a perfect place to play with personality. The backsplash can reflect current design trends, like rose metals, white neutrals, and whimsical patterns (think stripes and lanterns), or stay serene, classic and understated. The choice is yours.

In short, everyone ends up here. If you love the beach, try a calming blue hue (I love these glass tiles), and pair with white kitchen cabinets.

One of my current personal favorites is this classic lantern motif. A simple white in this pattern can add just the right amount of texture to a traditional space. Subway tiles are also a classic pattern that can easily fit any style. Stay timeless with a neutral, but don’t be afraid to infuse a bit of color in your kitchen if that’s what you love.
