Your kitchen splashback tiles can make or break the end look of the heart of your home. They need to tie in to other elements in the kitchen such as the cupboards, worktops and flooring. But as well as being complementary, your kitchen backsplash tiles can be a design element in themselves. I love the dramatic Graphite tile above from the Gemini Tiles Reflections range. It offers the perfect back-drop to explore the rich, dark colour palettes which are a fab alternative to white when it comes to kitchen backsplash tile trends. Reminiscent of Parisian metro stations designed in an Art Deco style, the 400mm width Reflections tiles are timeless in design and can recreate the sought after and effortlessly chic metro look in your home with ease. The beauty of the gloss finish allows for natural light to reflect from the tile’s surface back into the room. Despite the bold use of black, the space does not feel overwhelmingly dark. By combining darker hues in the kitchen with beautifully textured white marble and accents of polished gold, an incredibly modern and undeniably elegant look can be achieved through simple alterations to your décor.
With more of us opting for open plan living, our kitchens are no longer hidden away at the back of the house. It’s where we spend most of our waking time – cooking, eating and socialising. As the kitchen space is becoming as much of a social space as well as a functional space – we want our style to be reflected in it. So here are the top 5 kitchen backsplash tile ideas that I think you’ll love… just click on each image to find out more.
