Blending Styles

Recently, I had a client who wanted to update their kitchen by adding a backsplash. Before it was merely drywall. They did not want to change their kitchen cabinets and had already installed a granite countertop a few years ago. They preferred to not repaint and try to find something that would update their kitchen but meld all their current decor together. 

My recommendation was to add a stone mosaic backsplash to their kitchen.  Here are the photos.

The stone works beautifully with the cabinetry and countertop. It blends seamlessly with the colors of both and pulls in the paint colors on the wall. Although the tile is modern, its simple lines works well with the more traditional elements and ties in the stainless steel appliances.

To me it is the perfect match. This tile has the perfect mix of grays and browns to pull the look together without taking away from the other elements of the kitchen. Also, the varying size of the stones give it some interest without being too busy.

While tile backsplashes add interest to a kitchen, they are also functional. Unlike drywall, tile can be easily cleaned and is resistant to heat and water. 

If you are thinking of adding and/or changing a backsplash in your kitchen, try to choose one that pulls the elements of your kitchen together rather than compete with them.  Pick a tile with colors that compliment your existing decor and add some style and function to your space.

You don't have to spend a fortune to make big changes. Simple changes can have big impacts.

Happy decorating!
