Solid Slab Backsplash
Solid slabs ooze luxury and are available at a variety of price points. The Installation of these sometimes gigantic stone pieces is not for the faint-of-heart. Watch this installation video to see how it’s done.
As you can see perfect measurements and strategic planning are a necessity, but the results are worth it! The streamline simplicity of this look is enhanced when the countertops match.
There is a natural elegance to this backsplash treatment that is appropriate for every area of the home. Here it is used in a beverage bar adjacent to the great room.
On another installation the granite slabs actually glide to reveal secret storage beneath a flawless Raw Urth stainless steel hood.
Take It To The Ceiling
The unbroken vertical line of a full height backsplash will visually lift the ceiling and expand the entire space.
Similarly the full height backsplash as created with high gloss subway tile will brighten any room.
Colorful patterned tile is another top trend. This lively kitchen uses coral concrete tile as a beautiful way to infuse an otherwise neutral space with confident style.
We employ this technique again to make a statement on a backsplash in a kitchen designed with Plato Woodwork, Inc. Cabinetry. View the full kitchen here to see how the customer’s pottery collection inspired the design.
Shimmer & Shine
Adding a reflective material to the backsplash area will reduce shadows and introduce a delightfully unexpected note. Under cabinet lighting can be added to magnify the effect.
Simplicity doesn’t mean boring, especially when you achieve it with the use of a lovely shaped tile. Honeycomb, arabesques, and other hand cut shapes add interesting texture even when used in a neutral color palette.
