Popular design styles for 2022 homes seem to be incorporating more neutral, simple, and minimalistic elements to the interior elements. Details are used to add interest and break up the solid colors and monochrome themes that have become popular. In the kitchen, there are many different features that can be added to spice things up and create a stylish kitchen without being boring. Check out some of our favorite backsplash picks for 2022.
Incorporating large tiles into a backsplash helps to minimize your grout lines and creates the illusion of a solid surface. This helps to create a more expensive look in your kitchen for less. Additionally, the larger surface of the tile makes it easier to choose a material or pattern that can really be shown off. With traditional, smaller backsplash tiles, the veining or design can get lost because of the restricted surface area that is being broken up by the space between each individual tile.
Matching the backsplash to the countertop looks luxurious. This can be done with subtle patterns to blend in and allow other kitchen elements to speak for themselves or go for a more dramatic piece of marble or granite for a show stopping look. Either way. it is an easy way to ensure the backsplash jives well with the countertop while creating clean lines and a seamless finish.
Subway tiles are the safest option when you want something minimalistic that adds texture and dimension without having to commit to a trendy style or pattern. The subway tile is a classy, timeless option that will not be fading in popularity any time soon. Opt for the classic white, play around with sheen, even add a pop of color that works well with the other materials in the kitchen.
Depending on the layout of your home, a window backsplash could be a unique way of incorporating functionality with style. The window backsplash offers extra natural lighting and is ideal for those who like to host. Backyard barbecues and pool parties have never been more satisfying. Open the window for easy access to guests while in the kitchen preparing or serving food.
If you are looking to add more contrast or to compliment other elements incorporated in your kitchen, a dark backsplash may be for you. Dark colors are great to create a statement feature and allow you to maximize or minimize the look of grout lines depending on what color you choose. When done correctly, dark colors add a level of sophistication to a design with its bold, sleek appearance.
