Kitchen Tile Backsplash Ideas for Multi-Colored Kitchens
The two-toned kitchen design can be prevalent in large kitchens. Utilize the kitchen backsplash tile to help anchor and finish the kitchen design.
Homeowners with large kitchens may wish to install an island with various wood tones and counter than the rest of the kitchen to help achieve a more versatile look. While these tones will generally complement one another, the kitchen backsplash becomes the perfect place to unify the two-toned kitchen.
Single Color Backsplash in a Two Toned Kitchen
While the kitchen backsplash can be a way to pull all the kitchen colors together and accent colors from adjacent rooms, there are times when a single color will work better. When the rest of the kitchen design is neutral in color, the backsplash tile’s solid color can add depth and texture to the room.
If the kitchen design is made up primarily of creams and browns with neutral countertops, it may be wise to introduce some color into the tile design. It helps to warm and personalize the room, as well as give additional interest to space.
For otherwise neutral two-toned kitchens, try using a soft color throughout the backsplash. Try to avoid extremely saturated colors, as this may seem glaring in the absence of other colors in the room. Pull the tile’s tone from the rest of the kitchen to help unify; if the cabinetry is warm in fashion, the tile should be friendly as well; if bright whites and cool-toned wages are used, then the tile should be excellent in tone.
Two or More Colors in the Backsplash
For kitchens that use quartz counters in solid colors or which use multi-toned granite counters, the use of two or more colors of tile in the backsplash may help to pull the design together.
When the kitchen island counter is a bright, saturated color and the main counters are more neutral in tone, a multi-colored backsplash of several saturated hues can be employed in modern kitchens. Custom blends of mosaics, of a random mixture of colors in glass tiles or ceramic tiles, can give the additional kitchen pop. Ensure that all the colors’ saturation level is the same and that the island counter color is included.
For kitchens that have a wild patterned granite and a more sedate granite, two colored backsplashes can help tie the two areas together. If a heavily veined granite is used on the island counter, such as Rainforest Green, while a more sedate granite such as Kerala Green is used on the main counters, then the accent tones of the backsplash tile should come from the island.
Try taking the lightest color from the main counter, such as Ivory in Kerala Green, and using it as the backsplash’s predominant color. It could be as simple a design as subway tile or more elaborate with decorative tiles.
Pull bold lime greens, golds, rusts as accent colors from the Rainforest Green. Run two bands of bold color in subway tiles through the more sedate field, or use decorative tiles in these tones cut into the corners of tumbled marble or handmade ceramic tiles for a more traditional look.
The kitchen’s backsplash can be used to bring decoration to space and add a finished component to the room. Use the backsplash the anchor point of the two-toned kitchen and finish the design today.
