Designer Ammie Kim wanted to give this kitchen a modern look by creating a unique backsplash. The glass tiles in the backsplash alternate between glossy and etched, complementing the glossy stainless steel appliances and honey maple cabinets.
Two stone stripes climbing the wall behind the his and hers sinks create a unique backslash and add texture against the sleek vanity surfaces. Dark woodgrain cabinetry pops against the bright white atmosphere of the room. A white bathtub rests against a textured wall with built in shelf for easily accessible storage.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson added color to an all-white kitchen with a unique backsplash made from a piece of original modern artwork — a photo of graffiti in the Paris Metro.
This kitchen's designer selected green and white marble tiles in a classic harlequin pattern for a unique backsplash that contemporizes this otherwise traditional kitchen. The silver antique meat grinder is another showstopper of the room and makes one think of an artistic piece of sculpture, rather than a cooking apparatus.
This kitchen's designer chose to install glass and stone tile vertically rather than horizontally for a unique backsplash in neutral tones. The stainless steel range hood and appliances blend well with the schema, and the natural wood cabinetry pulls the brown color from the tiles for a lovely fusion of shades.
In a contemporary kitchen with white-painted oak cabinets, designer Ioana Mezei of Primera Interiors SRL added interest with a unique backsplash. “We customized wallpaper with chef Jamie Oliver’s hamburger recipe and covered it with ultra-clear glass,” she explains. The result is fun, easy to adapt to your own tastes (choose your own favorite recipe, quote or other writing) and easy to wipe clean.
The beige tile backsplash in this modern kitchen is unexpected and gorgeous -- it works to warm up the sometimes-stark feeling of a black-and-white space. Using a minimalistic range hood creates the illusion of more space, letting the backsplash be the star.
A unique backsplash is always a favorite element in a kitchen -- and this diamond-shaped tile one fits the bill. Just above, a modern-feeling stainless steel range hood acts as a crown for the backsplash, bringing even more attention to the design element. Granite countertops coordinate and complement the walls.
Clean-lined and modern, this bathroom's primary area of focus and interest is the unique mosaic backsplash. Very thin and long tiles in tones of white and gray are intricate and artistic. The frameless mirror and understated double vanity allow the backsplash to be the star.
The homeowners wanted a unique space for their family, so designers found Moroccan tiles for the backsplash and had custom Oak planks arranged in a chevron pattern on the front of the refrigerator and freezer. For the final touch, un-lacquered brass hardware and pendant lights add even more character to the design.
The large peninsula is covered in soft pleather while the rest of the countertops are honed slate. The glass mosaic backsplash and stainless-steel appliances reflect lots of light onto the custom cherry cabinets, as seen on HGTV's Bang for Your Buck.
