In a kitchen with an open layout, it can be challenging to link the workspace to adjacent living areas. Here, designer Robin Baron used an extra-tall stone-tile backsplash to help connect the kitchen and casual dining area and create an intriguing mix of patterns. "Great design is all about the balancing of layers,” she says. “This mixed stone patterned backsplash combined with the bold tapestry on the banquette create an interesting and inviting space for the family."
This transitional-style powder room looks larger than it is thanks to a tall mirrored backsplash. The glossy marble floor is complemented by the striking marble sink, which has open space beneath, contributing to the space feeling roomier than it actually is.
The white surroundings of this modern kitchen allow the multi-level brown stone island to make a big statement. The gorgeous stone design features tree-trunk like circles adding beautiful movement to the look of the room. The taller island counter is lined with simple white chairs creating an eat-in dining space. A backsplash panel matches the stone detail.

The white and gray marbled floor tile extends up the wall to form a backsplash behind this tall, white bathtub. The oval shaped tub fits beautifully below the sharp lines of the window casting natural light over the polished surface. A built in wall cubby creates easily accessible storage.
The updated kitchen has new hardwood floors, granite countertops, a subway tile backsplash, two pendant lights, and new stainless fixtures and appliances. The original lower cabinets and island were painted bright white, with modern hardware added. New upper cabinets are taller and offer more storage, and are a more appropriate height for the room, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
In this modern bathroom, designers created visual interest in the space by adding storage. A tall cabinet bisects the two sinks in the space, providing additional storage for the homeowners. Another aspect of the room that creates visual interest is the three dimensional tile backsplash. This addition gives texture to the space, and inserts personality into this clean, modern en suite.
Dark wood accents the high ceilings in this breathtaking kitchen. The arched doorway, candle-like iron light fixture and wood details bring a French country influence to this contemporary design. A tall, frosted glass range hood creates a bright accent above the dark neutral tile backsplash. A long kitchen island with a brown stone countertop features a thin, modern sink.
The goals for the kitchen were to open it up so that it felt larger and to incorporate functional storage space. Taking the upper cabinets to the ceiling helped make this space appear taller and fulfilled the storage request. The backsplash tile was blended with the cabinet color to further heighten the room, while the cabinetry was kept simple to complement the open concept. The overall style is contemporary yet rugged, incorporating natural materials and a grey-brown color scheme.
