A classic backsplash accent may not seem as sexy as many of today’s flashy glass and metal choices, but it’s a good bet for enduring beauty. This backsplash created by Tenhulzen Residential features glazed 3” x 6” ceramic tiles with an inset made of handmade tiles from Pratt & Larson, surrounded by subtle 2” x 2” glass squares. “The trick with accent features is to coordinate them with the look you intend for your entire space,” says owner Mike Tenhulzen. “You want to add intrigue without being too bold.”
The ceramic tile backsplash mimics the chevron pattern of the wood floors for a cohesive look in this transitional kitchen. A plaster range hood in bright white provides striking contrast against the dark cabinetry.
Navy blue ceramic tile serves as a functional backsplash and a striking accent wall that gives this kitchen a rich pop of color. Glossy gray countertops make a stylish impact. Simple white cabinets and walls balance the high-shine from appliances, tiles and countertops.
Walnut cabinets and handmade, glazed ceramic tiles restore period authenticity to this Pacific Palisades Estate. The tile runs up the wall to create a backsplash over the sink and vanity. Built in shelving provides easy and organized towel storage beside the bathtub.
Artwork by Miggie Wong and Renae Barnard adds interest to the vanity area in the master bathroom. Neutral ceramic tile covers the floor and half the wall creating a backsplash over the countertop. Walnut cabinetry adds beautiful warmth to the calming tones of the design.
