The backsplash of your Maple Grove kitchen is a central focal point that you probably find yourself staring at as you cook, bake, do the dishes, and generally “hang out” in your kitchen. Your family and guests to your home will also certainly notice your backsplash — for better or worse — so make sure it stands out! Here are some creative ideas from our team at Floor Coverings International Maple Grove.
1. Stainless Steel Tile
As you probably know, stainless steel is the most popular choice for kitchen appliances. Gone are the days of white and black fridges and stoves. If you’re cool, you’ve got stainless steel. But have you considered using this material for your backsplash as well? The reflectiveness of the steel makes it excellent for this often-dull surface, and with small stainless steel “tiles,” you’ll surely have something unique and different.
2. Ceramic Tile with Colored Grout
A ceramic tile backsplash is always a great way to go. It’s easy to clean, long-lasting, durable, and looks great. But to change things up a bit, consider pairing ceramic tile in a standard color like white or off-white with a bold grout hue.
For most of the ceramic tile backsplash options you’ll see, you’ll notice that the grout is a light, neutral color. But you can get a bit more creative with a bolder color that will really make your backsplash stand out! Try bright blue, dark brown, black, or even pink!
3. Stone Tile
You can also stick with the “tile and grout” theme, but go with natural stone instead of ceramic. Slate, granite, marble, and travertine can all add a naturally beautiful element to your kitchen. You may want to go with textured stone for a more rustic look, or a smooth and glossy style for a high-end luxury look.
Try any of these backsplash ideas in your own Maple Grove kitchen for a unique look that no one else on your block will have. To learn more, schedule a free consultation with our team at Floor Coverings International Maple Grove!
