Striking Alternatives to Tile Backsplash
While I will always love a white subway tile in the kitchen, nothing will pain you more than having to scrub the grout lines clean from time to time. Which is why it’s no wonder that so many interior designers and home owners are opting for alternatives to tile.
Continuous materials like this backpainted glass, slabs of marble or quartz, and stainless steel are beautiful substitutes, easy to clean, and are ideal if you don’t want the pattern of grout lines in your kitchen.
The large veining in this Calacatta Marble backsplash is an eye catcher and adds some drama to the kitchen.
Stainless steel backsplashes can add a contemporary or industrial feel, the fact that it’s used in commercial kitchens is a testament to its hygienic qualities and durability.
Full sheet mirrors, or mirror tiles, will help to spread light and open up small spaces, plus mirrors are available in tinted and antique finishes, offering you another unique element for your kitchen.
For a one-of-a-kind look, consider adding windows, not only will they provide you with an ample amount of natural light, but views of the garden as well, seamlessly bringing the outdoors in.
